Money Match #4: "Venice," St.Louis female seeking male

Here's the next entry in the Money Match personal ad series, a woman who is calling herself Venice-- I'm guessing that must be one of the places she lived in or at least visited while living abroad! Sounds like she has a great career but now wants to focus on enjoying life, and enjoying the company of someone who's ready to do the same.

This is such a great idea. I have become very involved with personal finance in the last year or so and though 30 and single it does cross my mind every so often about how hard it would be if I became involved with someone who did not have a similar financial mindset.

I am a 30 year old female attorney living in St. Louis, Missouri. I've lived in the east coast and a few other countries but currently enjoy the calm of life in the midwest. I have built up a nice emergency fund and invest regularly. I am decently frugal as in I don't deprive myself of events that make me happy like hanging out with friends or travel or eating at good restaurants every once in a while. I do focus on my shopping habits to make sure I don't overspend in those areas and am glad to say I've been doing really great. I try to tell all my friends how focusing on where your money goes really does help you move from living paycheck to paycheck. Goals-- probably invest much more in the stock market, get into real estate, earn enough to definitely slow down the work pace when I have kids and retire early (mid 50's)

I would love to meet a like-minded gentleman within 5 -7 years age range.



PS- I am regularly described as beautiful so that's not a problem. No hangups, just been focusing on career too hard and now its time to switch gears.
If Venice sounds like someone you'd like to meet, shoot me an email and I'll forward it to her!

interesting to see these profiles. You would think that a successful 30-ish lawyer, would probably at least be dating other lawyers!

I think it's funny that she felt like she had to applogize for being single and sucessful at 30 with a ps. None of the men did that. It's cute, but shows how different we really are.
