Hi. I sure hope online dating is becoming more traditional since I've exhausted other resources… Friends of friends? Married. Work associates? I'm self-employed. The gym? Sounds promising but they're mostly 20-28. Church? Mostly incompatible. Whole Foods? Can't always get the right angle to check for ring, and when I finally do, I'm right in their face (I suppose I could say, 'Hi. I noticed you're quite attractive, but now I see your ring. Have a nice day.' Another approach would be to wear a sign on my head that says, 'If you're female, please walk with your left hand in front of your face at all times so I can see if you have a ring on.'). Anyway, it's just hard to get a read on someone by observing 15 seconds before asking out. I'm becoming less interested in where someone lives and more interested in where they've been in life, who they are now, and what they value. Things that I find attractive include a positive outlook on life, charm, a smiling and approachable face, confidence in her abilities, body, intellect, and emotional stability. Someone with a youthfulness/playfulness is important to me.
Probably not overly compatible with drama, high-maintenance, pics using the bathroom or bedroom mirror, fuzzy solo pics with arm and camera phone extended, or profile names like HotOne4You, HeadcaseHoney, PlaWithMe2nite, HereComesTrouble, LonelyAgain, etc. Instead, I think I'm most compatible with someone who is classy, cheerful, adventurous, active, social, healthy and is mentally capable of a normal relationship. And if you like running trials, smart cooking, Whole Foods, the outdoors, and are eclectic, we just may be a match :)
I believe integrity and truth win out and that laughter is important. My interests include trying to be interesting, being adventurous, a healthy lifestyle, entrepreneurship, learning, sports, wine, socializing, festivals/outings, reading, acknowledging a higher power and my dog Shiloh (didn't mean to put those two together; Shiloh is not higher than me). I'm sometimes serious, sometimes silly, commonly seriously silly, punctual, "half-full," and observant/perceptive. Returning shopping carts actually makes me feel good, especially if it's raining. Cheers and good luck with your search!
It honestly doesn't matter to me... Greece, Spain, Kroger, movie, washing our cars together, pottery class, a midnight walk.
