Where to start? Well, I've decided to give this site a try and see what happens. Thought I might start out with casual dating and go from there. I'd like to meet someone with mutual interests that enjoys living for the moment but still has an eye on the road ahead.
I don't mind offering up my basic likes/dislikes but, I have always preferred to exchange that info through interaction.
I will say that I like being outdoors and I've been known to catch the occasional inspiring sunrise or sunset. A good hike through the Audobon in Topsfield, Lynn Woods or Breakheart Reservation in Saugus is always appealing and, fortunately, these sites are close by and easy to access. I still get out for a run/walk combo a few times a week to keep the heart pumping and the pounds down. I enjoy dropping my kayak in along the coastline and find being on the water both peaceful and inspiring. The social scene is still somewhat attractive to me and a good blues or classic rock band always makes for a fun evening. I enjoy cooking also. I'm no chef but, I can hold my own.
I hope that works for some of you out here. I'm taking this slow and trying to get a feel for POF. I'm sure I could have gone on but I doubt anyone is looking to read a book while perusing through the "sea"(get it? :-) of prospective dates.
Addendum: I have realized that I have to clarify my intent here on POF. I have stated that I am "looking to date / nothing serious". This is for good reason. I am a firm believer that relationships "happen". Knowing that I am looking for one will not ensure a woman will like me more, or vice versa. That is all based upon whether our personalities "click". I believe that, at this stage of our lives, if two people truly enjoy spending time with one another, they will be back for more. I could easily state that I am "looking for a relationship" but, that wouldn't guarantee that I am, as I'm sure some women have discovered with other men out here.
I like the first date to be simple. A drink or coffee somewhere so that there isn't any time commitment. If things click, the option is there to prolong the moment. If not, plans were soft anyway so, no harm, no foul.
