Sidenote: Ladies, if for some reason that you feel that you don't feel like chatting anymore and don't want to waste each others time, please have the decency to at least say so. I find it disheartening when i try to drop a quick note to say hello or good morning to find that I've been blocked, it's really quite rude and unnecessary, one of the reasons why I debated time and again on weather to continue on this site.
I am a widower and on here looking for friends and if something develops along the way, even better. I found out I am a hard worker, a trait presumably inherited from my mother, I work two jobs to occupy my time, the other being at the local convenience store and have been at it for 15 years now and counting. I spend more time awake then I am asleep because i work so much and I'm looking to change that.
I'm pretty easy going, down to earth and carefree and I try to live my life simple and economical and, as much as I can contribute, being green. I abhor smoking, extremely sensitive to the smell of it and personally, i think it's a filthy habit. I'm not a fan of church ( now cathedrals I like but only if they have nice structures so I can practice my photography)...oh and yea, I don't drive nor do i own a motor vehicle (just a life choice), I prefer to ride a mountain bike everywhere and anywhere around town, especially when I'm not at work.
In my spare time, i'm usually listening to music or watching movies or outside playing with my dogs. I don't do bars or drink much but do (on very rare occasions, have a drink or two ) and i am self sufficient and a pretty good cook.
I used to live in New York City, loved it there but I moved here a year before 9/11 and although I am thankful for that, like they say, I will never forget and even though I wasn't there, it still pains me whenever i think about it. I have somewhat adapted to the simple life here in Clovis, it does provides me the basic necessities to keep my sanity intact, lol. Anyway, I don't know what else to say for the moment, so if you have a question, just ask...
I would prefer a meet n greet, a date sounds so formal. Somewhere quiet so we can get better acquainted. A bike ride, a deli or a diner, somewhere you can sit and talk and be comfortable just talking over a cup of java or tea and finding out if we mesh and from there, maybe plan an actual first date.
