Dear Miss A,
I need some advice on how to find a date that is athletic, young enough to have 2 kids, and has a good head on her shoulders.. rich would be nice
Is this what you do for a living? Seems like something out of the movies.
Forty & Sporty
Dear Forty & Sporty,
I envy your uncomplicated requirements in a spouse! Athletic, resourceful with functioning ovaries shouldn’t be that hard to find. Having taken sailing lessons, I know that you have to have a pretty good head on your shoulders to learn how to sail, and it takes a more athletic person than power boating does. I would suggest that for your next vacation you sign up for a sailing course geared toward singles. There are a lot of travel options for this like the ones at Best Single Travel. Personally, Offshore Sailing School has a far better reputation as far as sailing goes, so I would see if they do something similar if you want to really learn to sail and want to find a brighter, wealthier woman! Although, a less expensive, more vacation-y sailing school might help you find someone on the younger side.
Also, you might join a high-end gym like the one I belong to —Equinox Fitness in Tysons Corner, Virginia. Considering that Washington, DC has the most people with dual masters degrees, and considering it takes intelligence and savvy to build wealth, I would think most of the women you’d meet at Equinox would have a “good head on their shoulders” and would be athletic since they made the decision to prioritize fitness in terms of their spending.
A friend of mine recently said, “Charity is your answer to anything!” So in keeping with that, I think that you might enjoy getting involved in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training. What started out as a fundraiser for the L&LS has evolved into perhaps the best sports training program in the country. According to their website, “More than 380,000 participants, from first timers to seasoned athletes, have trained with the Team and achieved their best at marathons, half marathons, triathlons, 100-mile century bike rides and hiking adventures.” If you don’t find the right woman, at least you’ll get in terrific shape, complete a marathon, and raise money for a great cause! And that’s not bad!
And of course, you can always come to my fundraisers and events. Maybe I’m biased, but I like to think my readers and attendees are intelligent, health-minded young women!
Best of luck! Let me know how it goes!
