It is hard to wrap yourself up in just a few paragraphs, it always seems like you are boasting or trying to sell yourself. But here is a little bit about me.
I lead a pretty simple lifestyle. I like RV camping at the lake with my daughters, their husbands, and the grandkids. I can enjoy doing nothing but spending the afternoon walking a disc golf course shooting the breeze with my brother, or spend three days racing him down a mountain in Breckenridge Co. I am a rollercoaster fanatic, I drove all the way to Cedar Point, OH to ride the 302 ft Millennium Force coaster the year it opened.
I can put on leathers and enjoy a bike rally or two a year, and the next week travel to San Francisco on business without embarrassing myself at a four start restaurant on Fisherman's Wharf.
Traveling is a passion of mine, but it is not nearly as fun to do alone. My next vacation I would like to take is to one of the SuperClubs in Jamaica.
I do not want put a lot of limitations on the type of person I would like to meet. I believe diversity is good in a relationship. It is always fun for two people to introduce each other to new experiences.
Ultimately I am looking for a relationship where there is a mutual trust and respect. If a relationship has that everything else will take care of itself. I would like to meet someone who is kind of a homebody, but also has a little bit of an adventurous streak. I think a couple can find a nice balance in that aspect.
I thought we would be a match,
But, no response meant that she didn’t agree,
It really doesn’t matter; I’ll find an internet match
Just you wait and see.
Another is sixteen years older,
But still she dropped a line,
Saying, “We would make a great match”
If I would only make her mine.
One of my first questions has been answered,
Now I know the reason why;
“No Thank You” letters are hard to compose,
It is easier, just not to reply.
We all love romance, quiet times, adventure,
And want someone that we can call “Dear.”
I wonder; if everyone is so perfect
How did we all end up here?
A fun first date seems to be a thing of the past,
Discussion over dinner suits all but a few.
Does anyone know why those meetings
Always feels like a marriage interview?
All at once they just stop answering,
When the correspondence seemed to be going fine.
So you think, and think and ponder some more,
“What did I say that was out of line?”
A lot of men are players,
To that everyone will agree.
Some women become "professional daters"
It seems all the same to me.
Thank you very much for your note,
We do have a lot in common; probably could find more.
But I want to shop around a bit,
Just as I do at the department store.
Let’s be totally honest,
I am setting my sights a little higher,
I have only been at this for eight short months.
The situation is far from dire.
Our friends tell us that we are too picky,
But we know we have a right to be.
It really doesn’t matter, We’ll find an internet match
Just you wait and see.

I am open to most anything. A relaxed event(a flea market,a zoo, a river festival, etc.) where two people could walk, observe, and visit would be nice. Coffee, dinner, or going for a drink would be fine with me also.
