Really, sincerely looking to meet someone who can become my best friend, ally and partner in crime, my go-to guy! Not trying to speak for everyone but believe we all want to connect with a special someone. I am a true believer in love.
Enjoy the outdoors,being and staying fit, gardening, animals, nature, fashion, reading, finding ways to be creative, shopping, here and in foreign markets, travel and watching DVD's and movies. Work full time at an amazing and unusual job alongside a wonderful creative team both of which I love. Have to admit, am a bit of a smart ass, have a tendency to tease good naturedly and dont mind being on the receiving end either! Have found that everyone has a remarkable story of their lives, if we only take the time to listen.
A married friend of mine recently touched on something that really struck a chord in me....Suppose all of us who are "available and looking" make that more obvious in daily life. This friend observed me showing no interest whatsoever when an attractive gent was trying to make eye contact with yours truly. She scolded me for acting hard to get, and thought about it and had to agree, maybe it was unintentional, but since then have vowed to start opening myself up, become more approachable.Want to be more aware of what messages I send. Hope my self realization helps me, and hope anyone reading this might see themselves as well! If we are all more observent, maybe we wouldnt need to be on POF....LOL
Would like to find someone who doesn't take himself too seriously, can laugh at himself. Smart, self confident, compassionate, empathic, not a picky eater lol!
I'd just like to add...
Caregiver to my 93 year old mom, who has a memory of about 5 seconds. She may be forgetful but she is spry, likes to go out to dinner, putter in the garden and sit in the sun. Simple pleasures make her happy. I think she is on to something!

Lets go hiking or take your dog for a walk? Farmers market? Coffee
