FRIENDS FIRST AND THEN ???
I have a few questions? What is with the fishing pictures if you aren't going to be remotely interested in a woman who can actually partake in that sport,and not just stand in a gosssip circle with your buddies wives and girlfriends, is it the fear that she might even show you up as if she were Joan Wulf? Trust me that won't happen, but I am dead on with a spin casting reel as well as being able to tie you any fly you might need or dream up, even the ones that are still between the pages of your favorite fly mag!.
Everybody's pictures are not what they would ideally want to post,considering no one really looks like their picture,wouldn't you rather be pleasantly surprised because her picture was not great and she turned out to be really pretty,rather than be disapointed by a picture on a fluke was way better than what she really looked like.
If a person honestly goes into that first meeting with the understanding that you may not click ,then both may walk away feeling good about it in either case come on this isn't the high school version of POF. It sometimes feels this way, I am just being honest here.
~~~~~~ I am 46 years old but I do not look it,I can be soft and girlie a bit more on the ladylike side perhaps,just because I am into outdoor activities it doesn't mean that I look like I could go bear hunting with a switch and have to shave off a 5 o'clock shadow.
I have a closet full of sexy clingy things and heels in addition to work boots , fishing clothes and keen sandles.I have clothing for elegant gallery openings as well as something I could wear to clean out the garage with,plus everything in the middle,I am not high maintenance, but nice does not mean afraid to get dirty.I have a great sense of humor, I love to laugh ~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~I have a hard time pidgeon holeing my looks because how one looks is so subjective,one gentleman may find me to be beautiful,while another may want to put me out in the morning with the dog,LOL! Pictures are so misleading, have you almost passed someone by only to find they were so much better looking in person, I don't think you would be disappointed, I just have a hard time bragging myself up, and remember everyone hates their pictures or have photogenic issues~~~~
~~~~~~~~My son is 14 going on 23 and is the love of my life,he is an avid fisherman and ties really great fishing flies, he loves political cartoons,different cultures and experiencing different things, I am proud of him. He is not a smart ass just a smart kid ,My boy and I try flies when he is here with me, he can think up some great patterns on his own and they are the first to sell.
~~~~~~~~~~Honesty is of the utmost importance to me, and follow through with what you say you are going to do as well,I cannot stand a man who mindlessly promises the world only to come up with excuse after excuse as to why it hasn't happened. Do you talk only to hear you talk ,have you put yourself on the pedestal of grand self importance? I will see you a mile away,And I do not listen to fools happily, and in the beginning I am easy to loose.
Communication is very important, I am not a mind reader, nor are you. A good deep conversation is nice, about what ever the topic is at hand.I do have a sharp sense of humor,it is there and comes out as I get to know a person.~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~I love to read, not novels or sci-fi, but books with real substance ,I guess I could be called an armchair anthropologist.I have been studying pre-columbian cultures for 10 years or so and have amassed a collection of ancient beads from that time period and other ancient goodies. I collect ancient artifacts.love to shoot Skeet or clays,any kind of fishing, tying flies.Art, music,other cultures and foreign films.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~Why I picked the octopus?, because it has always been a favourite of mine and...
The octopus is not a fish but a Mollusk (Phylum).they are Cephalopods, which also contains the nautilus and squid as well. Octopus are extremely intelligent critters and can think their way out of most situations, they enjoy crustaceans for dinner.
Us fishermen should complain that there are no salmon or native steelhead,or even a trout perhaps.Whats up with that?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
~~~~The first date would be nothing that would get a person stuck with another if things just weren't working out.No hard feelings right? Lets just keep an open mind about this situation and give it a try, I an sure we will both have a case of the butterflies.But if we meet and we are not what we expected, lets say after an hour, lets call it a night without hard feelings,but if things are going well leave it open for negotiation,Something spur of the moment,fly by the seat of your pants sort of thing.I would love to wander through Barnes and Noble, sportsmans wharehouse or an Art Store, gallery or whatever strikes our fancy,it's fun with enough of a distraction to keep the conversation going, and it's free.~~~~~~~~
~~~~I love the ocean or the straights so maybe once we get to know each other ~alot~ better the Ocean, for a day trip.~~~~
