I am recently retired after working 36 years in the world of industrial engineering, and now a part time musician who also enjoys hiking, and bike riding. I spent most of those 36 years sitting in an office behind a computer, so I really don't want to spend retirement being sedentary. I would enjoy meeting someone that would like going for rides on the towpath, and other beautiful trails we have nearby, or go for a casual day hike on the CV Ledges Trail (my favorite). I am open to trying new things, too.
As far as my musical tastes go, I enjoy... and play... blues, jazz, R&B, classic rock, but not metal, grunge, or rap / hip-hop. (note: what I play, and what I prefer to listen to are not always the same). I can tolerate some country, but if you are an avid listener, that's not going to work for me.
As for sports, I mostly enjoy baseball, but don't like the time that it can consume. However, if the Tribe stays on their roll, and wind up going deep into October, you bet I'll be glued to the TV. I like watching some basketball, and a little football, but not crazy about either.
My favorite seasons are spring and fall. I enjoy winter to a point (my dog likes walking in cooler temps, but frigid cold is another story for him (and for me too). I do enjoy summer, but I'm not much of a fan of excessive heat and humidity... like this year.
I don't want to write a book, so if there is something you'd like to know, you'll just have to ask me. I also don't respond to someone that clicks on Yes in Meet Me, as I've had a number of those alerts in the past, and when I contact that person I get the silent treatment. Also, don't send me a message that says merely "Hey there :)" (is that a default option for messages?) And don't send me a message, expecting me to reply, when you have me blocked. If I don't reply, I'm sorry, maybe there just isn't anything interesting to me. Please don't be offended because it works both ways.
First date is really just an "introduction" to the person behind the email and profile... a time to talk, have some laughs over coffee or whatever. After that, both can decide whether there is enough interest to meet again.
