Well, don't worry about smiling. For me it's not so much about beauty as it is having a frontal face shot, which is important to women. If you are going to get your bridge fixed then I don't see a proble with the six month picture. I can't promise rolling stone, but we have two responses already :).
this one is from Anya.............
Wow. Great ad. Where to start?
I'm 61, live in the Applegate. I'm a writer (actually get paid) and do a lot of crafts.
I'm a former Berkeley activist, but not doctrinaire, except I REALLY hate Bush, but hoping that will be over soon and we can head back to being America.
I've lived alone for a lot of years and been happy but more and more I miss having a partner. Want someone creative, who doesn't sit in front of a tv for entertainment. (Though I am actually thinking about buying one --I do enjoy some of the shows when I housesit. And I love old movies --currently watch them on my computer.)
I have a bad knee and no health insurance so I limp now, which frustrates me. Don't have the stamina I used to have, but still enjoy gardening, outdoors, etc. Go to exercise classes but I am overweight. Have a wide range of interests, including art, architecture, building, alternative energy, Native American cultures, antiques, history, wildcrafting, gardening, computer art, etc. Most things interest me. Life interests me. I've always wanted to learn to weld and would love to get my hands on a laser cutter for
metal. I can make jewelry, pottery, baskets, some carpentry. Used to be a great cook but have gotten out of the habit cooking for one. Would be nice to have someone to cook for.Thinking I'd like to make bread again. I used to make a dynamite sourdough brown rice bread.
Music I still love the oldies -- San Francisco bands, XXXXX XXXXX, Baez, XXXXX XXXXX, XXXXXy Simon, Joni XXXXX, XXXXX Muldar, Janis, kris kristofferson, Willie & Waylon. etc. I'd give Dylan a kidney if he needed one. I was fond of Phil Ochs, who I knew briefly. Also love some country, bluegrass, folk, dixieland, swing, jazz, and the Squirrel Nut Zippers. Like some classical but lighter stuff. Much prefer baroque and
harpsichord to piano. Also like music from around the world, including middle east, South America, even mariachi, but have trouble with Chinese. japanese better. Flute from anywhere. Can't take opera or rap, although I'd like to see an opera --that might change. I also don't think life always needs a sound track --like quiet sometimes.
I guess I fit that "spiritual, not religious" category. The redwoods my cathedral. I believe in the Navaho way of creating a life of beauty and harmony. Not always easy to do.
I still think I'd like to do some more traveling, although I haven't gone anywhere since someone rear ended me on a trip to San Diego 2 years ago. Can't take that traffic craziness. But I have a need to get back to Paris one last time and I'd like to see Tibet.
Want to talk?
Let me get the other one and post it too
