I'm a funny, smart, wry single parent, idealistic, honest, kind, loyal, not a girl scout. I don't like meanness: you have to be compassionate. You can't get mad at homeless people. I am the child of a great romance, which has made finding a mate a challenge -- I'm a little too idealistic. Ok, a lot too idealistic. I want a mate who makes my heart leap, who is polite to cashiers and parking lot attendants and won't vote Republican and who thinks my daughter is as amazing as I do. I have to think you're handsome--if there were italics, the word I would be italicized. Other people don't have to think it. You have friends from childhood. You are curious and quirky. You know how to use a fork and are willing to play scrabble with me. More later.
