My ideal match is someone; Pretty, kind, low maintenance, youthful, artistic, adventurous, open minded and healthy.
The above describes me well except for the "pretty" part. I've been often described as manly, sexy and handsome though... which is good because that's what I was going for.
I like simple things like playing music with friends, gardening, freecycling, riding my bike (it has cranks, no motor), cheap and/or expensive wine and everything in between.
I usually eat light and healthy and mostly plants. On occasion I like to feast and celebrate on things that are neither light or healthy.
I enjoy most aspects of my career but still dream of joining the circus and sailing the globe.
My current hobbies are playing loud rock music in my basement with friends on a weekly basis. I have a guitar collection that I cycle through and it allows me to be the rock star that I am for a little while. There is usually beer and wine and such being enjoyed during these sessions. Its all in good fun and I prefer this to golfing, bowling or fishing. Once in a while we play a show.
I'm a very good gardener
I'm currently building a portable Finnish style sauna. I can build anything out of anything.
I have two great teenage sons that I spend time with.
I'm attracted to women who take care of their body but not the ones that spend all their free time at a gym and smell like an air freshener.
I like country girls but I'm allergic to country music. I'm not fond of polyester but I make exceptions for yoga pants.
I don't drink but I'll have a drink.
I like both kinds of music; ROCK and ROLL.
When it comes to music, I'm stuck in the 70's with some exceptions.
But seriously, the music must fit the occasion. when it does, I can get behind anything.
My sense of style is classic. I believe that a fit body is the best "accessory"
I prefer to get to know you in person rather then sending messages back and forth in cyberspace, I think a real spark has to be created in reality.
I'm wary of profiles that have only one photo or only show closeups of the face with kissy lips and taken from far above the head. One last rant ladies; I'm sure your pet is important to you and it should be but if you are going to post it on a dating site you should be in the frame... same goes for sunsets, quotes or vistas of any sort. cheers.
I'm holding my breath waiting for your reply...
I have no plans to pay for this site. I get messages every day saying someone wants to meet me... really? All you have to do is say hi if that is true. I've been here for a long time. The truth is that most women don't bother to respond to a thoughtful note that I send. I don't waste my time writing them any more.
I will keep my post alive the same way I buy lottery tickets. I will be out there in real life with a smile on my face. Say hi if you want to join me.
I interpret this as the first meetup, a date to me involves romance, surprise and generosity. I'd have to get to know you before I could plan something like that. So for a meetup here's what works for me;
I start early during the week so a simple place to have some food and drinks where we share some laughs... and the cheque.
If all goes well I might even treat you to an ice-cream cone.
I'm also into meeting at a farmer's market or something similar. @ the very least we could get some groceries.
A bike ride or a walk are always great on a nice day.
Coffee shop is cool even though I make better coffee at home. (they do serve other beverages at those places if you don't like coffee btw)
