Last time I did the massive datathon - which was always one man at a time - I only dated Jewish men. My view on this *may* have changed with time. So I might be vaguely open to random suggestions. I know that my IRL friends about the place have been racking their brains for people I should meet but if you think of someone ... I'm not closed to the idea of getting back out there now.
On my commute home yesterday, I was thinking about what my "type" was or what I was looking for. And obviously, whatever my "type" might have been - might not have been working so well for me. So I should change that. I'm open to meeting people, I guess. Height and size and hair and eye colour are not actually on my list. Being kind and generous and having a good sense of humour and liking books and being politically aware and enjoying being outside and with family and friends and being a feminist, are more on my list. I dunno. How do you define "the click" till it happens? But ... I thought I'd put it out there, in any case.
Unrelatedly, I found myself answering one of those surveys on the phone last night. I feel sorry for people who need to collect data (my dad told me once he was the same - having done psych as his minor in his first degree - and said after a while, you get over it). In any case it was a health survey and I was kinda amused the way she was entering my information - fuck I sounded pathetic - oh, you're alone, never been married, live alone, weigh X, watch 30 hours a week of TV/Internet ... blah blah blah. My favourite bit was the answering major things that have happened in the last year - moved home, broke up a long term relationship, started a new job, death of a family member - she says "any others?" and I was like "Is this not *enough*?". And so .. even though, yeah I live alone and I am single and all that crap happened to me and I see a counsellor - I fucking rock for being able to answer the "in the last month" questions without an ounce of depression or anxiety for any of them.
