That Old Time Class

I like pearls. I like heels. I walk better in stillettos then I ever will in sneakers. I like wearing tastefull little black dresses. I can pin my hair up using only three bobby pins (but I use more to make it hold.) I can ballroom dance, and would do it more often if I didn't have a previous dancing injury. I like the old drinks, like Absinthe, dry reds, Champagne, a few coctails, etc. If you've seen it in a film noir, chances are I'd like it. I'm extremely intelligent, which means I know when to shut up. I let men take the floor, they've earned it, even for a little while. I adore make up and perfumes, know exactly the right amount of each. I have a very old way of thinking, which means I let men open doors for me, think love letters are the cincher on a relationship, and am actually rather fond of that "glass ceiling" most women in office want to break through. I'm not looking to become a hot shot buisness woman. I don't need a high salary to know I'm successful. I'm an actress, as a hobby and a personality trait. If I don't like you, you will know it, not because I swear and cause a scene, I will be extremely cordial to you, in fact, but I will be snide, and extremely quick witted at your expense. If that doesn't work, I will make an excuse and walk away. You will never hear me swear (I haven't sworn in five years.) I wear clothes that fit. I believe in leaving at least a little something to the imagination. Jazz music is the melody of my life. I'm trustworthy, have wonderful manners, and still people find me one of the most fun people to be around; I have never found myself without entourage.

I wish more people thought like I did, but all I have to do is look around me lately and watch people fail themselves. I'm tired of seeing people wearing as little clothing as possible without being arrested. I'm tired of seeing people drunk in the middle of the day, talking about the previous evening's escapade and "how are we going to pay the ticket off, looks like I'm going back to jail." I'm tired of watching men walk around insulting women to get them to go to bed, and I'm especially tired of that working. Shouldn't people grow out of this when they hit their twenties or something?

And this isn't my whole life. I wear jeans and tees, walk around in thick socks singing Anberlin to myself. I throw on sweats and walk on treadmills. I have my favorite TV shows (NCIS, Burn Notice, Law and Order anything.) I am every bit as modern as you are. I'm just a much classier modern than most people know what to do with.

Sounds lovely and enticing, I have always sought classy women, and your right, there aren't many. <br />

However, my wife is a little barn burner, and I can't say I would want to extinguish the flame. I liked what I found when I met her and saw no reason to ask her to change. I was impressed at first meeting, and 18 years later, I still am.
