Wow. I just was given 60 pages of profiles. That's a lot of fish. Now, how to find the right one?
The most important thing you must know is that I have a shetland sheepdog puppy named Minuet.
The next most important thing is that I do not like motorcycles or cigarettes, and neither does Minuet.
So you must love dogs and not live to ride...
I have a grand piano and love to harmonize. But it's okay if you dont, as long as you applaud every once in awhile...
I am self-employed in music. The business I created is part time and pays decently, so I can support myself because I am practical.
It follows that music is huge in my life, and I like lots of it. Like to discover small venues with no cover.
4 years ago I bought a home and worked hard to restore some of it's faded glory. Came out pretty well.
I have an oil painting studio and I like to garden and cook, and even better when I am cooking up my own garden..
I am only medium in the active area. You wont find me running marathons and I don't golf. I work out lightly in my home gym..
I like to bike on flat lands but my bike has a flat. Note to self: need to get that fixed. My muscles suck--except my fingers.. (piano)
Hmm.. what else? Not Republican. Love PBS. Read a LOT. Don't do movies much. I try to keep informed.
I like wine country exploration. And Ocean. And mountains. Have sailboat? That would make me smile! I can drive it.
I love art, cooking, performing, writing, and great conversation. One of the best books I recently read is called The Golden Shore, by David Helvarg.
I love to laugh and am drawn to people with an easy sense of humor about.. well just about anything.
What...too much? Wait, there's more....
I was married once, but it was so long ago surely it doesnt count.
I dont have children but get along with most of them well. I am a teacher.
I wont travel more than 20 miles for a relationship and I believe in the 10 percent rule regarding age difference.
I wont respond unless you fit the parameters, especially age and distance,
I wont respond unless you actually READ my profile and start up a real honest conversation on something that might be common ground.
I would not dream of jumping right in to a meeting or even talking on the phone unless I am sure there is something to talk about. I'm in no rush.
I recently received a note from a man who quite distantly suggested we meet because we have some common ground in our profiles. That is all he wrote. He made it sound as attractive as a trip to the dentist. I did not respond.
First meeting? Doesnt matter where--because by the time we get there, the chemistry is already present. As long as you bring a smile and make me laugh just by being funny.. I'm in the latter part of my life.. You have to laugh to get through it.
