Yes, yes, I'm a goyeh...look - I'm an old East Coaster. I'm going batty from being away from Jewish Culture! Ok, yes, and dating those in the culture ;) I'm a good egg, lived a life before the one I have now, and am getting to the point that my friends are realizing I'm getting a little lonely. I'm hiding behind my studies and work. A little scared, maybe, to try a relationship again, yes?
Maybe it would be nice to share a meal. A movie. Letters.
Maybe make each other laugh a bit too loud at a coffeehouse.
Maybe even hold hands once in a while.
I'm divorced and have one child out of the nest (she's 19) and another sharing nests (he's 6). I love my job at a local television station, I love the program I'm in at school - aiming for a dual degree, but will be happy with just the Bachelor of Science, with hopes to move into a MS and even PhD one day. I'm days away from 41, and am constantly told I don't look it. I'm a former indie filmmaker with some awards and such behind me. Had a few articles published, been on stage a few times, sold some paintings and photos...done a good bit of a lot, and now in my new decade focusing all that interdiscipinarily into a functional degree and career. I'm humbly amazed I got anything right!
I'm a great mom, a funny girl, and a very intelligent woman. I like down-time alone for a stretch and then the deep, loud, laugh starts to boil and double and it's gotta get out with friends over buffets and Dina Martina. While I actually enjoy my singledom (and have been for four years with an occasional lapse into a date now and then), the company of an adult one-to-one would be very nice. I actually have a decent background in relationships, many lasting as long-term friendships, or amended connections if things ended awkwardly. And yes, their wives/husbands/partners know we're friends and I respect their feelings should they make rules. I despise drama and do my best to walk away from it should it try to rear up.
I fuck up, a lot. I often laugh at it, a lot. Once in a while, some tears. Then, I get up and try again, change something, and/or learn from it. Do you?
What else...what else...well, maybe you should ask a few questions, now? :)
