Update 12/16/15 ---> Well, Spring & Summer came and went quick, and it's already almost Winter. As usual, I gained some weight back from September until December, and am holding off on looking for a relationship until I get back to my comfort zone by February-March. It's a vicious cycle every year. I seem to give up every Fall when volleyball subsides, get lazy and gain weight back. Maybe next year with the help of a significant other, I can keep it off in the fall, as well as I do already in the Spring & Summer. I hate dieting every Winter. No, I'm not fat and around 190 lbs. Most tell me I look better with the weight and it's not noticeable. Besides, that's probably the normal weight for someone 6 foot. Hell with them, I notice it, lol. Just browsing for now, and will think about looking again in 2-3 months when I'm thin again. :-)
Update 4/25/15 ---> I buzzed cut my hair recently, and I love how easy it is, so.... I'm keeping it like that but just a bit longer, for at least the summer for both volleyball and the pool.
No drama here, I live on my own, own my car, and have a good stable career with flexible hours, so I do have time to spend with that certain someone. I have been divorced for more than 10 years now and get along with my ex. In fact, I get along with everybody. I grew up in Cherry Hill and have lived in the area my whole life. I have 2 children. My son graduated College (summa cum laude), has his own career now and is engaged, and my daughter is in her Senior year in College.
I'm 6' tall, around 165 lbs (as high as 190's in the Winter), in great shape for my 50's, and have more stamina and energy than most 20 & 30 year olds that play volleyball with us. In fact, I'm in better shape than I've been since my 20's.
From March until November, I play 2 on 2 beach volleyball every Saturday & Sunday afternoon in Marlton. I've been playing for almost 15 years now, and love it for both the competition and the workout. And believe me, playing 2 on 2 in the sand for 5-7 hours in the hot sun each day, is a hell of a workout. I also run 3 miles once a week, and try to exercise or stretch here or there. I am not a workout nut, and do as little as needed to stay in shape, other than volleyball.
I rarely drink and haven't had one in more than 2 years. I'm not against drinking, but I don't go to clubs and bars, and I would never drink alone, so..... it's been a while. Plus drinking just isn't my thing, I'd rather smoke a joint. I did quit smoking (cigs) Dec 1st 2013, not a puff since. I do the e-cig thing tho.
In all the time I've been on POF, I've only chatted with less than a handful of people, and have met even less. In fact, I haven't even sent out a message in POF in over 2 years now. I'm not a serial dater or a player. I'm looking for a monogamous relationship. I haven't put much effort into this site, because I also don't mind being alone, but a nice balance would be perfect. I would like to meet someone, and I really want to, but I am not the type to force that to happen. It has to be the right person.
I prefer profiles with photos, and would love to chat at least once or twice to get to know each other a little first, before and if we decide to meet. Also, I prefer someone who doesn't weigh more than I do.
I hope to hear from you soon.
It seems everyone thinks they look younger than thier real age, including myself, and therefore everyone wants to date someone younger. But if everyone only dated someone younger, no one would be dating anyone.
Out of respect, I don't message anyone more than 5 yrs younger than myself, unless they message me first, or add me to their favorites.
