OK... I have been on here a while, I have talked to many and have been on a several dates but can't seem to find the right guy. I give up for a while then I try again. The good thing is that I have learned quite a bit from this experience. I know that no one is perfect, I am certainly not perfect. However, there are some minimum standards that are deal breakers when it comes to dating and relationships.
I will be blunt and cut through the B.S. so you don't have to waste your time if any of the following apply:
If you have bad teeth or bad hygiene, I am not interested. If you are uneducated, racist, homophobic, egotistical, sexist, mentally unstable or a fanatical religious bible pusher, I am not interested. If you lie on your profile and say for example that you drink "occasionally" and those occasions are daily. If you do drugs (and yes that includes marijuana) I am not interested. If you are a felon or involved in criminal activity or just a general menace to society, I am not interested. If you do not have a steady job (unless retired with an income), if you are homeless or sleeping in your mother's basement, if you are addicted to porn or videogames, I am not interested.
And guys,,,all those pictures with fish and game really gross me out. I don't want to fish or hunt or camp (maybe camp if in a nice R.V.). Do you really think women will be attracted to you because you caught a big fish??? Trust me, it's not doing you any favors. Please take those pictures down and post something WE like. Just saying...
If you are still reading this wow... congratulations! Thought I would have scared you off by now! Those of you brave enough to read on I commend you. Now that you understand the deal breakers, I have some hopeful expectations when it comes to dating:
I would like to be asked out on dates, I want to get to know you and go out and do things together. I like it when YOU have things planned out and make the effort to find interesting things to do. I want to be friends and laugh and have fun, I want to flirt and feel romance brewing for a long time before even thinking about moving forward. Some physical attraction is important, I am drawn to a nice smile, blue or green eyes and a big/tall built but looks are not as important as personality. A positive, easy going attitude goes a long way with me. I want to be treated like a lady with respect and good manners. Please understand that dating is not a committed relationship and therefore does not include sex. I may date others and you should feel free to do the same. If at some point we decide to move to the next level and a physical relationship develops, then I would expect it to be mutually exclusive.
Now for the boring stuff:
I enjoy being with my family, my dogs, reading, watching movies, going out and trying new things. I have a good job and work full time. I like organic, healthy foods. I study natural medicine and healing energy. I am spiritual but not a specific religion. I am honest, loyal, loving and passionate. I enjoy comedies, thrillers and action movies. I like classic rock, hard rock and alternative music. I was married for over 20 years and have four beautiful children who are now grown. I want to date and hopefully find someone responsible and mature to build a solid relationship with. I love to joke, laugh and go out and have fun, I also enjoy quite evenings at home just watching a movie.
Thanks for reading and may you find what you are looking for! Namaste!
The first date is casual conversation, getting to know each other as friends over a cup of coffee, dinner or drinks.
