Let me answer the body type question since I have "preferred not to say". None of the choices describe me. If "curvy with junk in the trunk" was on the list I'd have selected that. I am neither thin nor heavy, but I wouldn't describe me as average. And since most men around 50, still look at 20 year old athletic and toned for the definition of that body type, I won't select that either. So there you have it... My body type. (Also, my pictures are recent and accurate. You would have no problem recognizing me in a crowded room).
I am looking for a partner in crime and a good time. Someone to have fun and be active with. I keep my life simple and I am not into games. I am loyal and I have a passion for the things and people I love.
Something I find particularly peculiar is this in the "What are you looking for in a woman" section of men's profiles: Women 34-49. These are the profiles of men my age and older. I would love to know what happened to me on my 50th Birthday that made me wretched to men... Because, and let me be frank here, I think I'm better than I was at 52 than I was at 34... And I can provide references to back that up!!! Anyways, sorry for that tangent.... Fun, goofy and quirky are words that best describe my personality. The man for me would know how to have fun and laugh. He would want to care for the women he is with. He is looking for a deep emotional relationship as well as a physical connection... Which is a must. The attraction and chemistry must be there. He does not require chemicals, drugs or alcohol in order to relax and/or have fun.
I am a sucker for a great smile, nice hands and green or blue eyes, but I know that what is in the package is more important than it's wrapping. Who you are on the inside is who I will grow to love.
My geographical area to meet someone is limited to the San Fernando Valley to Oxnard, West Los Angeles, Marina del Rey/Santa Monica to Point Mugu, and Simi Valley. (Sounds silly? These are the areas that I am most fond of and I would consider spending time.)
If you are extremely conservative politically or religiously we would not be a good match. I consider myself middle of the road, but definitely lean left. I find political conversations with extreme differences exhausting and pointless because we will never agree with each other. And for religion, it is the thing that wedges us apart and creates differences and hate that there need not be.
