For me, this can be an opportunity to meet people that I would probably never come across in my daily life.
With the right partner, every aspect of life contains a sense of satisfaction and deep warm contentment. That's what I'm looking for. I'm a "one gal guy".
I live a short walk to a private lake club, where I enjoy seasonal sports that keep me fit and trim, at 5'10" and 180 lbs. Beach volleyball, softball and platform tennis are favorites. The club also has a bar and restaurant, with a wonderful view of the lake and surrounding woodlands.
My ideal "match" is intelligent, without being arrogant.
She is trim and fit and proud of it.
Her interests are varied and she loves to share them.
Her beauty is natural and eminates from within and she's not bothered by a few lines in her face.
She appreciates a gentleman and loves being treated like a lady.
She values honesty and loyalty above material things.
I think first meetings are best in a comfortable atmosphere, a drink or some coffee to lessen the pressure and expectations.
If things go well, we can take it to the next level.
No doubt, unless fate is truly on our side, we will both disappoint and be disappointed at some point.
If we're lucky our quest will be fulfilled before too long.
I love a genuine sense of humor, so if you don't think any of these quotes from kids about adult relationships are funny, I'm probably not a good match for you:
HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY? (as quoted from kids)
You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming. -- Alan, age 10

WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?
I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns. -- Craig, age 9
