At the risk of inducing some sort of pre-middle age existential crisis, let me ponder the questions, "Who am I?" and "What do I want?" - I am a 43 year old swf, never married, no children, no house, but one very cute and spoiled cat. Friends and colleagues describe me as positive, upbeat, loyal, and kind - although I will admit that I have a fierce side that comes jumping out when faced with intolerance, discrimination, or prejudice. I'm liberal/green politically but fiscally conservative and I do enjoy meeting all sorts of people and learning from them. Every conversation is a potential opportunity to learn and grow. I'm looking for a smart, healthy, attractive guy who has a passion for life and enjoys spending time with the special woman in his life. I'd love to have a relationship that is based on mutual respect, attraction, and shared interests. If you feel the same way I'd like to hear from you.
