**update after another month: I was recently told I would be "a catch", so there must be some amazing fish out there for you ladies since I've been universally passed over. Good for you, bad for me.??
**update after two more months: why put you're in meeting new people then don't bother to reply to messages before deleting them. I'm beginning to get a bit worn down by all the "read deleted" and "UNREAD deleted." Am I really that bad??
**update after a month back on POF** No messages...hmm, is it the beard? The cat? Tough crowd..
I have lived here in New Orleans for a few years now, and I'm in love with this town! I want to enjoy good fun, good drinks and good company. So far, I have met some great people in this town, but I'd love to meet more. Although I am not necessarily looking for a relationship right now, I would still like to have a close bond with a special woman. I'm retired military, but somehow I find myself working five jobs to keep occupied. I work doing things as varied as educating the public on important social issues to entertaining the public as the announcer for the Big Easy Rollergirls and the New Orleans Voodoo Arena Football teams. I think some women were put off by the fact I was not listed as looking for a relationship, but I wasn't, so why lie about it to get more responses? Now I'm not sure what I want anymore. What I do know is that I want a genuine friendship and fondness for each other's company and mutual interests. Also a mutual curiosity to learn about each other's interests. Although I'm not looking too hard for a relationship, I'm still a romantic gentleman and would make a woman the center of my attention anytime we were together. Come be treated like the beautiful woman you are without all the creeper clinginess.
