Okay for starters, if you get the reference in my headline, we will almost certainly get along extremely well as friends or otherwise. If you're reading this then chances are you aren't currently part of Southern Crackers target market either. Maybe someday! Well since nobody seems to get it here's a clue. It's a somewhat obscure reference to a popular ,long-running, animated TV show. This reference probably being from sometime in the 90s.
I'm a pretty independent guy and would like to meet someone similar. I don't have any absolute restrictions other than someone smart and funny, but my preference would be to date a non-smoker in her 30s at the same stage of their life as me, but that's not to say that exceptions can't be made if we really click otherwise. That being said, I don't really have any expectations or limitations from this site. I have made some very good friends on here.
Sorry about the picture. No I'm not trying to fool anyone. I'm sure you can all clearly tell there is someone cropped out of it. It's just that I don't have many pictures of myself and the few I do have all have other people in them. I'm not much of a selfie taker.
If you're going to message me, please give me something to work with, not just 1 or 2 word messages. Fine if you don't want to spend much time writing your first message if you're not sure if I'll reply. So if that's one word, I may or may not decide to respond. But after that I'll stop responding if you give me nothing work with. Seriously, why do some people even bother?
And no I'm not actually retired. I have a good (real) job that I enjoy very much!

It depends on the person and what our common interests are. Something fun and casual preferably. A movie doesn't really work unless you do something else before and/or after because you can't talk during a movie. Coffee or "a drink" is kinda boring. Sounds more like "lets see if you look like your picture" date, because that's about all that gets accomplished. I suppose you also find out whether or not one can afford a coffee. And yes I am biased because I don't drink coffee. I have all kinds of ideas but its hard to say which would be ideal before getting to know the person a little. Hopefully after getting to know them I/we would be able to come up with some even better ideas.
