WE INTERRUPT THIS PROFILE FOR AN IMPORTANT NEWS BULLETIN: IF YOU ACTUALLY DO THINK YOU WOULD LIKE TO MEET ME, PLEASE DO NOT CLICK MEET ME. PLEASE SEND A MESSAGE INSTEAD.
I am not an upgraded member. If you click that you want to meet a POF member who is NOT upgraded, POF will hide your profile from that person and they will not be able to respond to you. They have disabled the search by name function for those who are not upgraded members. I have found that they screen "meet me" people out of chemistry and match lists. That is POF's incentive for becoming an upgraded member. I understand it's a matchmaking business.
Introducing yourself by sending a short message regarding why we might enjoy getting acquainted makes a much nicer first impression than clicking meet me
Now back to our regularly scheduled profile.
SMART, ECLECTIC , FUNNY GAL
I am literate, fit, playful, outdoorsy, and water loving. I will keep you on your toes and, if you can keep up with me, we will have lots of fun and loads of laughs.
My photos are current and my age is real. I'm healthy and energetic. I have no need or desire to misrepresent myself nor to pretend I arrived on this planet at a later date. I hope the same is true of you and your profile.
Better than a bow ornament--I can take the helm, jump the halyard, trim a sail, swim, snorkel and don't get seasick.
I play guitar and sing often. Sometimes for practice, but I enjoy making music with others and attend musical gatherings and sometimes perform at open mics. I also write songs.
Cycling is a regular form of exercise and pleasure. Love to roll and get out on a bike at least once or twice a week. Go hiking too. Enjoy moderate hikes but not rock scrambling.
I swing dance, (also 2-step, waltz, contra and ballroom dance) but you don't have dance if you don't enjoy it. Just as you are welcome to go mountain climbing or continue other sports you may like but I don't. Dancing has brought many good friends into my life over the years and I'm keeping them.
I'm getting back into tennis through meet up groups. I used to play tournaments and leagues.
As a spectator you may find me supporting local theater and live music, attending a sporting event, or perusing a museum or art exhibit.
What do I appreciate in a man? An active person, honest, works with integrity, cares for his friends and family, curious about the world around him, and who is strong without being overbearing or arrogant. Blends intelligence with common sense and appreciates nature.
For those who are "god fearing" churchgoing, very conservative, only enjoy indoor pursuits, or just looking for a quick romp in the sheets, we won't get along.
I would prefer someone who has no children or else has adult children. I'm looking for spark and compatibility. Not a cougar though I do well with men a few years younger than me.
If you would like to meet me, please send a message and say more than just "hi" or one of those canned phrases. Real men send real messages.
Thanks for visiting.
Casual activities like walks, bike rides, or music seem to help ease the tension as do informal settings for meet and greets. Fancier outings can wait for dates that follow. Lots of options out there. I appreciate creativity, but can do the coffee/drink date too.
