This is always the hardest part, but here goes:
I enjoy running. I like to run 5K's (6-8 a year) for fun and charity and I like to workout, bike and hike.
I like being outdoors and moving...not sitting, whenever possible.
For the most part, I'm an active 50-something year old guy with a young heart and an off center sense of humor. I get my energy from fitness and running. I'm also laid back, quiet at times, debt free, financially stable, and loyal. I love to travel to places warm and tropical, but I also enjoy a weekend trip to the beach. I can cook (nothing extravagant), I'm handy with tools, I don't mind getting dirty although I'm not much in the garden.
I enjoy music and concerts, with Classic Rock at the top of my list.
One of my short-term goals is to retire sometime in early 2015. Moving out of state is a very strong possibility at that time. More than likely, I'll be relocating to the Gulf Coast of Florida.
My favorite gadgets are my iphone,ipod and Kindle Fire.
Who am I looking for? A woman who shares the same desires and outlook on life. An independent woman is a must, both financially and emotionally. That woman is caring, and also thinks Values are very important. Your kids are out of the house and if they live in your basement, I'm not sure I'm the one for you. I'm not a big fan of women who wear Crocs and/or soccer-mom jeans. A woman who doesn't think a pedicure is a medicine for her dog. A woman who takes care of herself, physically and emotionally, will be of interest to me. If you don't think regular exercise and/or running is important, you're also not the woman for me.
I like to watch and play sports, but I'm not one to play games on this site. I think it's important for you to be up front with everyone about your current situation. If you lie about your age or body type, or your interests are ones that you had when you were younger, do us all a favor and update them to the current day. I personally do not have the time to play the deception game. Let's be fair about all of this.
'Chemistry' is something I believe in, and I believe passion is not just a fruit.
Don't you just love POF's 'My Matches' button? Do they give any thought to the choices at all ???
One of my few rules is, if you don't have a picture, I will not reply.
Thanks for shopping.
