What do we see in a face?

She is a tough-minded, independent thinker who likes to explore ideas or problems thoroughly. Yet she has a wild side and is not interested in maintaining routine social engagements either.

She gravitates to men and women who are intellectually exciting and like to discuss topics broadly and thoroughly.

She tends to like someone who is spontaneous, even mischievous, as well as a mate who can appreciate her rugged individualism and support of her drive to succeed.

A few excerpts from her personality test:

  • After watching an emotional film, I often still feel moved by it several hours later
  • I am more creative than most people
  • I am more optimistic than most people

in her own words...

I wake up each day grateful for my life. I am blessed with family and friends who are very dear to me. I've lived my life with heart: taking risks and scoring some brilliant moves, as well as taking a few falls. I have a few scars to show. :) Yet I have no regrets. I accept the paradoxes in my life. I like where I am going and I believe in aging gracefully. Here's what my close friends have said about me: loyal, thoughtful, goofy, affectionate, creative, open, generous, old soul and young child all rolled into one. You laugh easily, are kind and courteous to the old and the young, enjoy the company of friends and family, and savor time for yourself. You're happy in your own skin, scars and all. Friends would describe you as a scholar-athlete who possesses an inquisitive mind, a discerning eye, an affectionate nature, and a generous spirit. You may look the part, but you don't always follow the rules. I am looking for that one face that resonates. I recently saw an ad claiming that one in five connections are made online. So here I am, trying it out for a month because I’ve been living my own life—doing what I enjoy, focusing on what is important to me—and YOU and I still have not crossed paths. I know I probably will garner more responses if I provide more photos and details about my preferences, but I prefer to share that in person. I am not shy and I love engaging exchanges. I believe the best way to determine if one clicks with someone is in person. I still believe in the mystery and wonder of a connection—it’s not all about matching likes and dislikes, although there’s value in knowing each other's similarities and differences. If you are up for a walk to see where our conversation takes us, I'd like to hear from you. If we end up as friends, that would be cool. Anything else, hope springs eternal. Thanks for all the winks and nods! Wishing you all the best!
