ATTENTION: Thanks for your interest in RedMatch. At the moment the project is on hold for two reasons, my poor health and the lack of a co-conspirator with the technical expertise to set up a web site that will do the things I want it to do. Finding a co-conspirator would be a significant step, but my health still requires me to put my part of the work on hold for at least a few months, so I won’t be able to send out the test version until late spring or early summer. I will keep your information and add you to the mailing list when I’m able.
I've been single now for ten years, and recovered from my bad break-up for some time now. Chronic illness makes it hard to meet anyone by accident, since I don't get out that much, but I've told my friends and the universe and half a dozen dating sites that I'm looking. I know that I'm a catch. I'm a highly intelligent, creative, passionate, perceptive, communicative, generous, funny, enthusiastic, emotionally mature and socially committed woman. I love wholeheartedly and intelligently and I'm a great kisser. And I'm not getting anywhere online.
The problem is, I don't care about the things that most designers of dating sites expect me to care about, and the things that matter most to me, don't even occur to them. I'm not looking for gentlemen who enjoy fine dining, new age divas wanting to make magic, or any of the host of people who insist on financial stability, athletic standards of fitness, slender bodies and glowing health. I don't want to be anyone's "special someone." I don't want an activity partner or a friend with benefits. I want a comrade.
