IF CONNECTING WITH A SOMEWHAT QUIRKY 29-year-old Columbia Ph.D. student who is at least reasonably attractive by most standards, and who has a sincere interest in much of the standard cultural fare of a reasonably well-educated urbanite (e.g. opera, theater, live (mostly classical) music, art museums) piques your interest, you might consider contacting me.  By way of greater disclosure, I might add that I have an incorrigibly curious nature, a handful of curmudgeonly views, a streak of friskiness, a touch of melancholy.  I’d like to find a partner, guide, lover, leader, and co-explorer and -idler.  Please be between roughly 40 and 55, at least a tad unconventional, kind (of course), passionate, and, at least in some one way, rather exceptional.  I’ll be happy to provide a photo once contact is established.
