taking my dog places she can roam around and be awesome.

Currently I'm interested in companionship: going out and doing things together, not doing anything (together), inside jokes, and banter. (I would like to find myself in a relationship eventually, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.)
Also, furry friends for my girl.
What I'm looking for: elements of connection (e.g. shared interests), attraction (most importantly a great smile), and compatibility (e.g. shared values). A thoughtful person with quick wit and who knows his way around a kitchen and a dance floor would be ideal -- we would both support and challenge one another, laugh often, cook and enjoy meals together, and go out dancing occasionally.

Are you looking for me?? hahaha :)
My approach to POF for anyone curious: I used to think finding my match was just a numbers game, and I responded to a lot of people who took the time to message me. I don't do this anymore, because receiving a canned message happens so frequently, it's difficult to separate the signal from the noise. I've also received some pretty awful responses from guys to my honest but polite replies that I wasn't interested but wished them luck in finding their match. (I'm sure everyone has had negative experiences here, but I see no reason for me to continue to recreate the circumstances that invite hateful messages.)
So, I can't be universally polite anymore. I will, however, respond to gentlemen who seem to have a genuine interest in finding a relationship and indicate in some way (through their message or profile) they are kind, stable individuals who have goals and integrity. If we were a mutual meet me match, you can take that as a signal that something in your profile caught my eye.
Here's to all of us finding our other half...
