Hello! I'm 47, stand 6'2", 220 lbs. with brown hair and eyes. I've been guilty of being a workaholic,but it's high time to change that! Kinda new with this on-line trip, but Life is Short! I enjoy listening to music (anything but gangsta-rap and opera!), movies, walks/hikes, the beach, the stars,good conversation, stimulating companions, FUN! Don't really consider myself "unique", but I'll admit up-front that I'm a Nice Guy who values Honesty, Simplicity and Directness. I've had enough of BS and Games - get enough of that on the job! - I appreciate both Interior and Exterior Beauty in all things, Women included! There are, like, 57 "I-Statements" in this paragraph already, which pretty much creeps me out! Not the self-centered type, and not looking for that, either. I loathe talking about myself like this, but am always willing to answer questions! Just know that my answers are more often than not pretty direct!
Basically, I'm looking for a Friend, a Companion - amd if things can comfortably escalate from there, so be it! But to me, an honest friendship is the Foundation to All!
I've been out of the Dating "Scene" for so long, I'm not even sure what The Rules are these days! But I'd imagine a First Date might involve a relaxing meal, walking a beach, prowling a book or music store (do they still have music stores?), being somewhere scenic and talking / listening. Discovering what each other are about, sharing & respecting opinions and points of view. There can be a sense of pressure or being uptight associated with a First Date - kinda like a job interview! And I'd just as soon steer clear of that trip! For me, I guess it comes down to being relaxed and comfortable enough with each other to Be Real, letting us both see what the other is about. Sounds kinda esoteric - but doesn't that make sense?
