Hi there, first off thanks for taking the time to read this profile. I have never really been a "dater," meaning I just haven't been on a lot of dates and have usually met people through friends, school, etc. As a result I feel just a little bit anxious about meeting people for the first time this way but I you have to meet people one way or another and it might as well be this.
A little about me, I work from home and have been doing that for quite a few years now. I really enjoy it and have a hard time imagining what it would be like to commute to a job any more and work in an office. I suppose I am very lucky as far as that goes (and I think my dog probably feels the same way). I have an older house in an older neighborhood just outside of downtown where I have a few too many pinball machines and a couple of cars and motorcycles - all symptoms of having lived alone for many years I guess.
I wouldn't say that I am a super 'active' guy but I do like to get out and do things, even quite healthy things every once and awhile like a nice bike ride, hike, or maybe even just a day trip somewhere. I like to go out but mainly to smaller, quieter places, I tend to be kind of a connoisseur of dive bars I suppose, and I like to go out and catch live music in smaller venues every once and a while. I dabble a bit in playing in a band myself but it is nothing too active at this point. I haven't had cable TV for many years so I can't keep up a conversation about the latest series on HBO, but I do like to be somewhat current. I also like to watch sports when I can. I just find it a nice diversion to get away from day to day realities.
I suppose I am looking for someone with some of the same interests, but also someone to challenge me to do new things and keep me just a little more active and involved than I am now. For example, I used to cook a lot but find that without someone to share with, I just haven't kept it up. I think that there are a few things like that where I could use a little 'nudge' to get back into things that I used to enjoy, or new ones to explore. Oh, except for the fact that I don't ski/board. I did when I was young but have not continued and now I find it just too expensive and time consuming.
OK, that is probably way more than you wanted to know but thanks again for reading. I'll end with, "experienced motorcycle riders / passengers are a plus!"
Well, I like trying different restaurants so perhaps a meal somewhere new. Doesn't have to be fancy, even a cup of coffee would be fine or maybe just a drink at some nice spot. Who knows, might be fun!
