First of all...HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL OF YOU!
Since I've been single I have been spending alot of time with my male friends. They are an OK bunch but they smell to much like I do and they can't dance. I'm neither seeking nor avoiding a serious relationship. Those things have a way of taking care of themselves. Anyway, I would like to meet someone and that's why I'm here. BTW- Motorcycling is a lifetime hobby but not my lifestyle.
Camping- Love it but after 3 or four days all I can think about is a hot shower and going out to dinner.
Hiking- I'm good for 8-12 miles but I always ask myself "What was I thinking?"
Golf- I'd go pro if it wasn't for that slice, shank, misread putt, duff, yip and lost ball here and there.
Motorcycle riding- Greatest thrill to be on my big, loud, fast Harley riding down the delta or foothills. Just don't tell my mother I have it. She's a bit of a worry wart ever since my first one at 12yrs old. Bless her heart. BTW- I'm not a "biker". It's more of a hobby... not my lifestyle.
BB-Qing- I am not yet a master but am working on it. No sick friends so far.Can you make a decent appetizer?
Playing pool- Love the game
Beaches- OK OK...I know all you gals love those long walks but can we actually go in the water too?
Fireplaces-Those pesky "Spare the Air" days sure do put a damper on things!
Gold Panning- There is gold in them thar hills but to hard to get at. Gave it up.
Scuba diving- Been twice in Cancun..would do it again. Even touched a shark ONCE!
Reading- Every night. Keep reading the same paragraph over and over till I fall asleep.(non-fiction, history mostly)
Food and Music- Life is a cornucopia of both. Oldies & Mowtown mostly.
Wine- I've learned many of the adjectives. Why doesn't any wine actually taste like a grape?
Movies- My brother's Indian name is "Movie Talker". I'm "Hogs the Popcorn"
Excersize- I never spell it right but I do try to do it 3-4 times a week and for 55 I can still detect my youthful physique in there somewhere. Never been kicked out of bed for eating crackers.
YOU MAY SKIP TO LAST PARAGRAPH>>>>I ADMIT MY PROFILE IS LONG BUT I HAD FUN WRITING IT!!!
Museums- Spent alot of time in DC museums when I was young. Never boring. I sometimes actually read those little info plaques. Still enjoy them.
Work-I love my job and I'm good at it. Money is respectable but I won't get rich. It doesn't come home with me either. The benefits are great and the perks are great for travel. Including weekends in Monterey, SF or Tahoe on occasion. Let's go!
Naps-Grab one whenever I can. Doesn't everyone hit a wall in the afternoon?
Vintage Cars/Motorcycle shows(especially Mustangs)- I have a 67 that I've owned for 30 years. Can't part with it.
Humor- I do have a sense of humor. Push the envelope sometimes too. Sometimes I don't know if people are laughing with or at me though. HMMMMM?? Doesn't really matter I guess.
Next Goal-Take the AMTRAC snow train to Reno. Heard the scenery is incredible.
The Cup-It's neither half full nor half empty...it's just the wrong size. Make life happen.
Enough about me. How about what I want in you. Firstly, I don't really care to much if you have the exact same interests as I do. I'm just glad you have them. If we share some GREAT-LET'S GO!!! But if we don't then we can have an opportunity to appreciate or learn about something new. What a gift for someone. A new interest! Besides, we don't have to do everything together do we? I just want you to me honest with me. I won't expect perfection from you if you don't expect it from me but I will always do my best to make you happy you're with me. That's all. OK maybe a few more things but I can't put my finger on what those things are. Can anyone?
All I know is that we should be able to enhance each others life experiences just by being who we are.
You came this far with me so TAG,YOU'RE IT!
BTW-Once we have started communicating, I will do my best to respond promptly.
If you are a serial dater please just be honest about it at the get go.
