THIS IS AN UNUSUAL AD. A decade ago I met my husband through an ad. He was a widower and I a recent widow. We have been happily married for 8 years. So I believe advertising for a date can work. My very attractive and gregarious 46 years old stepdaughter does not believe advertising for a date can work. She wants to meet her partner through an introduction. So, I am looking for a potential partner for her who is willing to meet me first, so I can make the introduction. In addition to being highly attractive, she is a proficient musician who travels extensively and is fluent in 6 languages. She is outgoing with a large network of contacts. Her non-working time is spent visiting friends and her nieces and nephews, rock climbing, and running (she finished the NYC marathon). She resides and works in Baltimore and NYC (among other places). I however, live in NYC. If you think you are a match, and are willing to meet me first, please contact me and tell me about yourself. NYR Box 68015.
