ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I left Match.com, then watched the emails pile up. So like Charlie Brown running for the football yet again, I ponied up the cash for one more month. I fully expect to be reflecting on the wisdom of this move after I've landed on the flat of my back.

"Let's be bestest buddies, and if there's chemistry, we can move on to romance." Gracias, pero no gracias. I've got *tons* of friends. I know many women where we like each other well enough. I make 'em laugh; we are an intellectual, moral, and recreational match. We both love Long Walks On The Beach, Fine Dining, and Can Go From Jeans-And-A-Tee-Shirt to A-Little-Black-Dress-And-Pearls In The Bat Of An Eyelash (although I had to have my LBD tailored -- you should have seen the looks on their faces at Neiman Marcus). But love is not an option for some reason. I've got plenty of those.

As sung by Freddie Mercury (RIP): "Can Anybody find me somebody to love?" For real, this time.

Recently, I've wondered why Match.com don't come with a "She wouldn't be interested" button, which, half the time, is why I don't pursue things. I have a hard enough time getting a second date with women who are in my league... it's all very fine to have one's reach exceed one's grasp, but the resulting fall to earth is not quite as poetic. If your profile has language to effect of "only REAL men need apply"... go away. I'm not "real" enough for you. And I want a more evolved woman.

I'm educated (my field is an interesting combination of high-tech and old-fashioned scholarship), multilingual, musically-inclined (but you'll be doing the world a favor if you keep the guitar away from me), and a decorated war vet (but it's not this cornerstone of my identity). I'm a former missionary (*so* not that anymore), sometime translator, decent cook. I get passionate about what I think is important. In the flesh, I present with some imperfections, but it is my experience that we all do, sooner or later. Case in point? Look really hard at my picture: you should see Fred Flintstone staring back at you.

Oh, and I'm on dialysis, three times a week. For some reason, that's a deal-breaker for many of you out there. I dunno why, it's not exactly contagious... still, if it makes you want to run, run along, then, and good luck to you.

Who am I looking for? My list of requirements have shifted somewhat since I was in my twenties, from things like "double-jointed, looks like a swimwear model" to "is nice to me." A sense of humor that goes from Oscar Wilde clear to South Park. Preferably someone whose profile doesn't include a long and bitter litany of Ways Men Have Done Them Wrong. Someone who believes in something noble and is willing to stand for it. More smarts than vanity, with more balm than bile, more bang than flash, more ayes than noes, and more kisses than not. Intelligence and confidence are as sexy as hell. But mostly, it's about the Nice -- a little good will goes a long way. Double-jointed still gets bonus points.

So much for the list. I'm willing to concede that I may be dead wrong on the individual items. Of far greater import is the impact. If all goes according to plan (ha!), I've lived out half my life. My children are moving into adulthood, and I have every intention of seeing what the second half has to offer. I'm looking for someone who I would rather spend time with than do anything else. Someone who has me making a fool of myself, and not even caring. I want to be moved to write outrageous poetry, make confession-worthy desserts, and generally contriving as many opportunities as I can to be in her company. And she has to put up with me; there's the rub.

I have faith you're out there somewhere. Maybe not on Match. But out there.
