Target Dossier: 37 year old Caucasian female resides with a housemate in the bustling center of a small rural community. Commonly seen when out and about playing boggle, appreciating art & culture, figure drawing, movies, walking, canoing, and eating well. Travels frequently from hostel to 5 star style and has a great job that after 5 years still feels like â€I get to do this today!â€. Drives a car that is often a torrential mess but alphabetizes both her CDs and spices. Independent of the variety that would prefer to get a ladder than to ask someone tall to reach something but prefers a real back scratching to rubbing up on rough tree bark, bear style. Reads, cooks, gardens, balances a healthy life with hedonistic fun and continually learns new things.
Spy tool: Continually learning new things requires new stimulation and to be in different circles. Look at your watch. If you donâ€™t have one pretend! Is it time for something new? Or is it time for something goofy, campy, ridiculous and trivial? Either way youâ€™ll know what to do.
This message will self destruct with the yahoo account â€“ please refer to documentation from yahoo for the exact timeframe.
I am still single and open to meeting people but have entirely given up on dating like this. It is too forced and subject to many a hurt feelings.
