At the ripe old age of 50, going on 30, having had great academic success and a chequered 25-year career as an international linguist, I've had only a few long and serious relationships and marriage and kids seem to have passed me by while I whiled away my spare time comfortably and creatively. After lengthy therapy, workshops, etc.,
I am reassessing my life on this 2005 New Year's Day and finding gaps, things not risked, intimacy not experienced for a few years. Inspired by my brother and a friend who found their partners on the internet, I am sending out this hi-tech message in-a-bottle as an expression of hope and openness to all the fun and richness that life has to offer.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'd like to meet for a coffee in the centre of Brussels and chat.
