I am a 53 year old New England native living in Florida, working in state government, who has been divorced since 2011. I have joint custody of a 9-year old son who means the world to me, and I'm trying to keep him happy in the midst of emotional upheaval. I suppose that I would best be described as a middle class mensch rather than some uber-rich overachieving yuppie, so if you're in the market for a doctor, lawyer, or hedge fund manager, I'm definitely not going to fit the bill. Right now, I'm primarily focusing on keeping my daily routine running smoothly and making sure that I can maintain what I have in other words, I don't seek out any extra drama in my life. My interests include spectator sports, movies, music, and traveling, and I try to exercise whenever I can (usually playing ball with my son). Politically, I'm pretty liberal, although I'm somewhat conventional when it comes to personal conduct. I also have a soft spot in my heart for animals, as I have 2 dogs and 2 cats, all adopted from local shelters (and I'm waging an endless battle against fur on my carpets and furniture).
Given the pitfalls of joint custody, I am stuck in Tallahassee for at least another 9 years, so I am unable to relocate therefore, anybody interested will have to either be living within 50 miles of here, or would be willing to relocate here, which is not exactly a hotbed for Jewish culture or the garden spot of Florida (but at least there's no snow to shovel).
I'm not particularly religious, but I do feel a strong cultural connection to Judaism, particularly since I feel completely out of place in the Bible Belt (it's especially bad during Christmas and Easter). I realize that the odds of meeting somebody who is both compatible AND Jewish in lil' ol' Tallahassee are extremely thin, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy.
