Online dating. Hmmm. Personally, I miss the "glance across the crowded room." Ever wonder why it doesn't seem to happen to you much anymore? Perhaps there are too many other singles in the room intercepting the glance before it can get to you!
Let's see...I'm not looking for perfection in a man, but I AM looking for someone with a zest for life. A man who can find an hour each day to do some form of exercise because he wants to look good and be healthy. Who has respect for others, along with honesty, compassion and empathy, which to me are turn ons (along with nicely muscled arms!) Intelligence is a turn on for me and I don't like boring! In fact, challenge me. I like a little bit of thrill seeking sometimes! Someone who has (or has had) and likes having animals/pets (and doesn't mind hair on him sometimes. I have lint rollers!) as I will always have pets in my life. I like kids (I don't have my own) but if you have them, that's fine. A man who delights in the physical and emotional aspects of a relationship and knows what it is to be completely accepted and is finally ready for the real deal. You see...I believe we are meant to "pair" here in life...and that life is better spent with someone special.
I have a good sense of humor (and want that in a partner also...) love to laugh and to tease in fun. I "get" men...don't always understand them...but I get why some of you do what you do. Others I've come to realize are way out in left field somewhere...and no one needs those kind! :) I'm a fun, kind, caring and honest woman and I believe in living the golden rule and respecting others. I love movies, plays, live music (was a pro singer for over 20 years), sunsets, walking or hiking, lakes and rivers, the outdoors, love animals, (yes, I'm another single middle aged woman with cats. What a surprise!) exploring new places, history (bit of a Civil War buff), reading a great story and writing one too, having fun and laughing together because without laughter life would be pretty dull. :) Would love to travel more! Last but not least, I believe in people striving to be the best they can be for themselves. Whatever that is for you. I'm excited for the fun and safety that comes with finding love. I hope you are too!
First date...you know, the sky is really the limit here. I think you need to meet briefly the first time to see if there's anything there.... meaning "chemistry" which is a strange cat EVEN if you have hit it off writing or on the phone. If there is something there then by all means let's proceed. I will say this though...I do like a man who puts some planning into a first date and makes it fun. Best way to impress me! And if you give me your number (after getting to know each other a little bit on the site) and I call you and leave a message for you...please make the effort to call me back in a somewhat timely manner. It will show me you are at least serious in getting to know me. Thanks!
