Finding a FI buddy is like dating.

First off, I need to find someone local (FYI: long distance never works out, sorry). So I could possibly meet them for coffee during a breakdown to rattle off my crazy ideas...once the caffine kicks in, who knows where my mouth will go? And I just can't type as fast as my brain thinks. Unfortunately I can't run my crazy ideas by my family anymore because they don't want to see me fail and shack up in their basement. My friends? Let's just say of my top ten closest friends...I rank #1 in net worth by far (maybe even combined).

Second, I need to find someone in the same boat as me. I'm debt free except for my mini-McMansion, in which I share with 3 lazy roommates/pigs(circle one) and rent out the basement apt. Which is fine since I'm under 30 and realize the sacrifices I need to make now (HELLO-Ramen noodles and freecycle).

I've got a secure full-time job with funding till Sept 2006, but I want to quit yesterday. I'd love to be a Stay-At-Home-Bum with no kids, so I'm always looking at ways to "work from home". But let's be real, I work for the gov't and my job is too cushy to leave on some days. But I at least want the option to quit or at least run off to Australia for a month. My four vacations (3 being international) last year put me in the hole for vacation days.

I've owned/sold rental property even when my family said don't get into it. Well in their face because my money did better in real estate than the bank for the past 2 years. And more important was the lesson learned throughout the process. Books don't buy that. Now I'm looking for my next property, but come-on....DC is overpriced.

So now this sucker is thinking about getting into Foreign Currency trading part-time (idea...bounce....bounce). Anyone, anyone, Bueller, Bueller....

So my ad would sound like this:
Me: Tall Buxom blonde looking to exchange digits. No need to disclose actual numbers. Exchange info over coffee or Ramen noodles, but possible rambling on and not making sense may apply.
You: Self-made millionaire (on paper of course). Stay-At-Home-Bums should apply.
P.S. I'm not tall, buxom and I'm certainly not blonde.
P.S.S. I'm not REALLY looking to date you (just in case you can't read between the lines of sarcasm).

****Hopelessly in DC
