I think I have written this column over and over this week – whether it’s in my head or on paper. Confessions of a perfectionist writer who is concerned about protecting her anonymous identity but wanting to write freely without boundaries or preconceived notions. Richmond is a small town and it is often inevitable that the would-be classified information of whom you may be dating or hooking up with may eventually come out into the open. My dating life could be compared to “Sex And The City” – I’ve experienced a little bit of every character on the show. My SATC persona lately could be compared to Samantha since I’m in a phase of enjoying various liberties with men and sex.
As much as I’m enjoying my Samantha phase, I know the conservative nature of Richmond. This city is filled with St. Catherine’s-esque girls who are waiting for their preppy boy in madras armor. I am not that girl. I’m the girl who enjoys wit, good conversation, and toe-curling sex. Samantha from “Sex And The City” may have been just after sex, I’m after the booty call with just a little bit more substance. Smart is sexy to me. That is what may set me apart from Samantha, I want the sex but I want the brain that goes along with it. Is that too much to ask?
