I grew up in S. Calif. and relocated to the Portland,OR. area where i went to school while working as a youth counselor, and retired as an adult parole/probation officer. I moved to Maui and lived there for 4 years. I came to Phoenix ( Ahwatukee ) in 2004, and downsized, for a simple,easy lifestyle. I play as much golf as possible. I ride my motorcycle. I take my dog to the park daily. I like to eat out, I listen mostly to 60's music ( Dylan, CSN&YOUNG, Loggins and Messina, Donovan, Birds, etc...). I'm much more of a day person than a night person. I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy, haven't had a tie on since I retired. I'd like to meet someone in the area that is on the same page. 3 things I can live w/o...tats, piercings, and bible thumpers. Seems most of the women I've talked to want to chat and chat, and that's it...If you're just lonely and want to type the rest of your life, PLEASE go play elsewhere. Just like the rest of the internet this site is full of spammers...don't believe anything you hear, and only half of what you see. If you're so shallow that you start your profile off with "I'm beatuiful and sexy"...skip me. If you're "low maintainance" and go on to list 2 dozen places you want to travel to, and all the things you want...skip me. If your interests/hobbies are dancing, traveling, shooting guns, fishing, drag races, shooting pool and beer,and other redneck things, I didn't grow up doing those things. If you're illiterate and can't spell or form a sentence...skip me. I wonder why so many women post old, old pics of themselves when they were young. I assume they want us to know that at one time they were attractive, which has nothing to do with today.
