to be completely honest: i'm looking for a smokin' hot affair that lasts a lifetime.
with someone who has the desire, the energy, and the capacity...
and who might enjoy a contemplative, fiercely romantic, and occasionally stoopid-silly woman:-).
-- professional in the social sciences/services who loves and finds fascinating her work life (an amazing blessing!); recreational hedonist who finds herself, during the warmer months, on her bike, beaching, sipping fruity ***tails (can you believe they censored the "c*ck?"), often in rapid succession; marveling at the beauty of women on the subway, at intersections, buying groceries...
-- or, in less flattering moments: moping about the rain, local and national politics, and the devolution of our culture into a hot runny mess of cheezwhiz and fundamentalism.
-- love to cook, wine and dine exquisitely, or at the not-yet-discovered great ethnic spot (or, at least, not yet discovered by me!); read, dance around with my canine (who has the expected 'two left feet':-). enjoy art/theater/music/dance in all forms, as well as sitting in dive bars or more elegant settings engaged in meandering reparte/flirtation with the collaborator in this adventure.
-- getting lost in the rapture of a beautiful novel -- and lover -- is something i cherish (almost) equally. my tastes in novels are broad; my tastes in broads? (apologies to those who find this term offensive. it worked in my romping with language, which is one of my favorite sports.) i swoon most often for pretty femmes of all ethnicities who are more on the slim side than not. needless to say, i've had much more opportunity to read than anything else...:-)
-- if you meet the above description and could see yourself attracted to a woman who conflates the butch/femme fervently. with the physique of a thoroughbred, including long mane and high tail :-). write!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
cocktails in the late afternoon/early evening, outdoors, if seasonally appropriate. if all of our appetites were whetted? a slow easy dinner of intense conversation and raucous laughter, punctuated by perfect bites of food that deliciously, but only momentarily, distracted from the company. i would also be partial to a beach or bike or museum date. as long as there is ample opportunity for en vivo communication with direct eye contact, i'm game!!
