Ah, the infamous search for an individual who doesn't use 'textspeak'! So, how is that hunt going for you?
I would be interested in discussing what you read, as I actually do a little of that myself. I am an avid game player (board as well as cards), with a distinct lean towards strategy games. I am also able to discuss history, art, music (I listen to many different genres) and the occasional political topic.
If you still don't have a conversationalist that tickles your fancy, and you'd like to see if I can keep up my skills, please feel free to contact me. I'm here as DejahT, but on yahoo (mail or messenger), I can be found as Dejah2013.
And since you provided the stats, here are mine: I'm a 50 year old straight female, tired of being called Babe by every guy, or spoken to in abbreviations. I have a mind, that is as hot as my body, and it actually likes to be exercised. I am 5'2", with long reddish blond hair, blue eyes, and a killer smile (but only in the best way).
Have an awesome weekend! It will be here before you know it!
