This is so funny - I just looked down the page and this POF site provides the following "advice?" about woman's' favorite and least favorite stuff to talk about. So just in case this matters, I like the list of stuff woman don't like to talk about way better than the list we apparently do like to talk about? I can't really imagine getting together the first time to discuss romance and our dreams. I don't read a lot of romance novels (seriously?) - would prefer a great historical or political or at least something set in a different time and place than right here. So I vote we talk about the second list - Let's rant and rave about politics and religion instead! Maybe this is a big problem? I don't want to talk about "womanly" stuff? Oh yea and everything in my house is kind of antique-ish and yep - that's on the "woman don't want to talk about" list too? Who wrote these?

Something else.... Men on internet dating sites always express an interest in a woman who is "spontaneous". In the interest of full disclosure: I'm not very spontaneous. I'm a planner. My dog is my kid, so jumping on your Harley with 10 minutes notice for a fantasy weekend drive up the coast in the Redwoods probably wouldn't happen. I'd need to get a dog sitter, and water the yard, and pack etc. Better yet, let's skip the Harley, go in the car, and bring the dog. If you have a dog to bring with us too, that's even better!
Something else again:....this having to select ONE WORD to describe our personalities? Seriously? Yea I'm an animal lover and a professional, and kind of a homebody and a humanist and an avid gym goer and a reader and not a night owl, and sort of a geek, and a cook, and kind of craftsy/artsy and love the outdoors and hiking and running and beaching etc etc ... So if your primary word to describe yourself is "hippie" ...we probably aren't all that compatible. Don't get me wrong - I admire hippies (Hey I live in Santa Cruz!) and I love what they stood for (and stand for) - but these days, I'm pretty sure we just don't "live" the same way. :-) I like my comfy house and I like all my stuff. I don't apologize for having too many shoes ... I earned them! :-)
All my pictures are recent - I yam what I yam...not beautiful, not ugly...just sorta plain-ish Jane-ish. I hope you have a few photos too...and maybe even one or two of you without a hat and sunglasses :-) heehee
First things first ok?-- So before a date" - let's please talk on the phone? I'd like to "hear" you. I'm not a fan of emailing back and forth on this site to set up a time/place...it's nice to talk first...right? I'm a nice girl and I promise a phone call won't be scary.... And you know what would be so great on the first phone call and/or date? A TWO-WAY conversation - you know, where we BOTH get to say stuff... So one of us doesn't do all the listening while the other one does all the talking? Then maybe we can grab lunch? Less pressure than dinner and it only takes an hour if it's, uh, well, um - you know - "not meeting expectations" :-) Or if it is, no reason not to stay a little longer....
