FYI ... If I add you to my Favorites, it means I am interested, but slow to make the first move - or I cannot contact you directly due to one of Plenty of Fish's myriad contact "hurdles". Please feel free to contact me :)
PLEASE NOTE: It is pointless to use the "Meet Me" feature unless you are a paid member at $82 - $145 per year (I'm not).
White male, part native american, 5 11, thick but proportionate, black hair, hazel eyes, pass for much younger than i am, not looking for a hand or a hand out but for a partner, ATTITUDE NOT AGE is key, must be open minded, intelligent, laid back, prefer a bit of a home body, a night owl even better :) ... looking forward to hearing from you, promise to reply to all with cam or photo + phone ... good luck in your search
I'm an animal lover (esp. dogs), technologically savvy.
Due to occasional travel for work, I'm looking for someone who wants to date when I am in town and doesnt mind being phone buddies if I travel to teach or work out of the area for a few days or a weekend.
I am not a "serial" or "multiple" dater, I'm a "one at a time" kinda guy, so the right offer _will_ take me off of the market :)
Where do we start?
An initial message or two here, then a couple of phone calls to get to know each other a bit in advance, hoping to reduce the awkwardness :) of it all ...
I do not believe that text messaging constitutes a relationship.
Exchanging messages here, then text messages, is a fine way to start - however it needs to move on to telephone conversation and a face-to-face meeting sometime thereafter. I unfortunately have had several folks who ended up being a waste of time as after a month or so they still were stuck to their phones, only wishing to text message. I only contact one person at a time, and it often takes me a month or more in between attempts before I can try again, so I don't wish to waste anyone's time or have them end up wasting mine simply so I could entertain them via text message to help them pass their day at work or get through their boredom at home. Text messaging as a part of a healthy relationship is great. Text messaging as the only ongoing communication of a ''relationship'' is not. I hope this doesn't sound terribly negative, it's simply an honest assessment of a few of my recent past experiences.
First meet or date? Ladies choice, perhaps somewhere low key where we can get a chance to talk ...
