One word that describes me much better than any of POF's choices is eclectic. A Jill of many trades with diverse interests. I chose adventurer because life has many forms of adventures and it is important to enjoy them along the way. I not going to wait for retirement to start having adventures. Savoring opportunities in the present is as necessary as saving for rainy days.
Sure would be nice if you enjoy outdoor activities. I prefer to keep fit with bike riding (mountain and road), hiking, tennis, walking and a variety of outside pursuits. Dancing with a partner is much more fun than a machine in a gym. I don't rely on just one form of exercise, that would be boring. Going to hear live music, and singing and performing music on a non-professional level has tuned up my senses as well as my dexterity. If you offer me a choice of going to a musical or theatrical performance vs. a movie I'll opt for live entertainment. Not that I don't enjoy a good film, but I like interactive entertainment better and believe in supporting the local arts and we have some great talent in Ventura County.
I'm aiming for a well balanced life and am looking for someone who does the same. What does that mean? You take into account the importance of your work, exercise your mind and your body, build and maintain relationships, take care of your financial and daily living needs and blend them into what is overall, a happy way of life. You are appreciative of friends, family, nature, and opportunities for growth, new experiences, and the good fortune that you have had thus far. You work constructively to continue along a positive path. I know that this can be hard work and that life is not without its struggles and curve balls. It is also a source of joy and fulfillment. Yes, I know I can be a little wordy, but I love to play with them. I won't be offended if you request the Reader's Digest condensed version or do some editorial kissing now and then.
I have a pretty darn cool life. Sure would be nice to share it with a like minded man.
Informal activities seem to make the first meet and greet easier and diffuse that interview feeling. Perhaps a walk or hike, bike ride, game of tennis, or meeting at a place with interesting scenery? I don't mind meeting for a beverage, a bite to eat or a yogurt either. A first date can be anything we decide we would enjoy after the first meeting. I appreciate creative thinking.
