Hi- this is my new, improved, hopefully, less trite, profile.
I believe most of us decide who to contact based on photos and the demographics below them, but not including a profile might signal that I'm lazy or not interested in the process--so here goes.
I’ve uploaded photos from the past 5 or 6 years because I always hear from men I meet on this site that women trick them with old photos or a false age. I think that’s a waste of time—for either person to do it.
While pleasantries are nice, my personal feeling as it relates to POF is that unless you think we're a match and you'd like to meet me, it’s not necessary to message me. I’m on this site because I would like to meet a man that I can get to know, enjoy his company and hopefully be someone I can care about. Plus it’s free…
I’ve traveled several times to Europe and a few of the islands, though not recently--but I want to start doing it again. I enjoy movies, theater, book group, card games, and yes I have a subscription to Netflix. I find movies relaxing especially after a long day (week) at work. Not really into watching sports, but I don’t care if someone else is.
I don’t golf but I love to walk and would hike if I had some company. Cross country skiing is my only winter sport and, full disclosure, I’d like to retire in the Carolinas where winters are warmer.
I have two grown sons—they live nearby, they’re great guys, and they have their own lives. I recently lost my dog (whom I adored) but probably won’t get another one until I retire.
I took a personality test a while back and results said I’m an Introvert who enjoys people. My friends all think that’s accurate and so do I.
That’s about it. I’ll probably save my old profile and upload it again if I don’t get any messages for a month! Though I’ve met many men on this site, I honestly don’t believe POF matches people based on anything. That’s why meeting in person is so important.
Probably meet for a drink, but only because I can't come up with a better idea. Also, I’m not yet retired so work takes up a lot of my time, not to mention the crazy route 128 commute. I visit my 94 year old Mom a couple of times a week to help my sister care for her. I mention this because week night dates sometimes work, but most of the time I’m either tired or pre-occupied because I have an early meeting the next morning. My preference is to meet on the weekend or a Friday night if possible. But if it seems like we're a match, we'll figure out when to meet. :)
