'What, no small talk? No pleasant chit-chat? That's the trouble with the world today. No one takes time to do a really sinister interrogation anymore. It's a lost art." quote from a James Bond Movie
Keep my friends for a very long time, the reason being I realize we all have our little imperfections, and not being judgmental but accepting is the key to a long term friendship. Would be interested in someone who has been able to keep many long term friendships. Chances are you will have a long term relationship.
Not much of a pursuer, actually a little shy. Don't like to be around people who don't (am I imploring a double negative ? lol) have enthusiasm, passion, or creativity. Always got along with teachers (people who like to learn new things), and artists for their creativity. Love hometown USA' and the people. Must admit I think a lot of the people I met were slightly depressed. Maybe because this part of the country has 2/3rds of its days cloudy.
If you keep writing me and don't want to meet, I am all for some pleasant chit chat, socializing type of guy but please don't waste my time. If you favorite me or wrote to me but don't respond back to emails, have to figure your pre-occupied or distracted from something else.
There is a new type of poverty in America, and it is not of money but time. Time impoverishment. mismanaged life styles, social media actual seems to separate people from personal contact. If your time impoverished probably not going to work out for me. I have all the time in the world for you.
A lot of you have been stuck in this subculture box for a long time. Some seem a little confused by my profile. Wondering if it is real. Ha Ha time to live out of the box and experience some one who is different. How boring would it be to date someone like yourself. Spice is the variety of life.

, retired from a crazy, crazy law enforcement job, (so I'm financial independent, and have plenty of time for you)now settled in hometown USA. Off the grid. peaceful life, no drama. Polite, mannerly, happy, socialize with many interesting diverse people and even been in national magazines at parties ! If you catch my drift, I did a lot of things, now it's time to head toward simplicity instead of complexity. I know what it is like to work crazy shifts, and crazy hours, Last 18 years of law enforcement worked 3rd shift :-(. (a lot of coffee and donuts ha ha) So if you have crazy hours, or like donuts no problemas.
Had a lot of emergency medical training in the military Traveling a lot to study cold laser acupuncture, (no needles used just a 5/1000 of a watt cold laser) from a teacher who has been at it for 40 years. Have helped people with chronic pain, old people not needing their canes anymore, feeling in hands and toes restored, and low level laser collagen repair from facials, surgical scars, to burn victims.
My wish for you is that you find your happiness, and the people you get involved with will encourage your dreams.
I was born and raised a New Yorker. Slightly different subculture. New Yorkers like to go out to nice restaurants, plays, etc. We are not cheapskates when it comes to going out. Besides putting a nice brooks brothers suit on, diversified enough to go to a wetsuit, kung-fu gi, Harley jacket and motorcycle etc. We think out of the box and have a special type of intelligence. High School was boring so to get out I skipped 2 grades and had a diploma at 16. College was cool to learn new things but did it really prepare you for a stable job ? Work, career, worried about retirement did they ever discuss that ? Just like graduating high school early had to pose the question if this career thing was wasting my valuable time, and how I can retire at a young age. So I figured it out and did it. 2 bar graphs had to go up simultaneously one of spare time, and one of money rising together simultaneously. Time to spend with family and friends and tell them how much you appreciate them.
I have a concrete awareness, don't hop on the bandwagon for slogans and sayings. The glass is neither half full or half empty/ optimist pessimist type of thing, The glass was always full half water and half air. Always identify your resources in a situation, and use them. They are a lot of answers to so called impossible questions, you have to think out of the box, and search hard for the answers.
I like people with a sense of humor. Those people kept me going in the military and law enforcement. I like animals and children. Use to train Newfoundland dogs for water rescue. Took psychology courses pertaining to fatherless America. So to understand children of divorce, and the so called family package deal. Your kids and pets will probably like me more than you. Ha Ha (joking) The courses helped with the gang task force issues pertaining to my job, and understanding that for every dollar government spends on a kids program they save 10 dollars in law enforcement cost.
Just moved here and The people in the Pittsburgh and western Pennsylvania area are fantastic and very friendly. The climate might be cold but the people are warm, I have traveled the world and found this place to be a photographers dream. Bridges in Kittaning to downtown Pittsburgh used in so many movies, accompanied with mountains and three beautiful rivers, Its Hollywood best kept secret as you just have to Wikipedia how many movies were filmed here.I can see why they like it so much. I have a lot of exploring to do from The Dusquene Incline to the Pennsylvania grand canyon. Appreciate it if you tell me what is unique and what to explore in this area.( always looking for a fantastic picture.) Also love the charm of some of your older restaurants like the Original Oyster House, and the beautiful Grand Concourse.
Please be a person that enjoys life, and not have more baggage than the Samsonite warehouse. I know a lot of you are in pain, but who wants to hear on the first date about how your ex boyfriend canceled your wedding plans at the last minute, how you hate your ex husband, just out of a long relationship etc. Your nice people, but your hurting and need to grieve a little before you get out into a new relationship. It takes time to heal. Don't want to be someone's rebound relationship, and find myself playing psychologist on these dinner dates.
It's a question of balance. A life without problems is a life without growth. Don't let anyone walk through your mind with their dirty feet. We all have our problems, need to take time and leave those things on the shelf. Put your mind in neutral and let it cost. Worry is not going to change one thing. Looking for someone who has the capacity to enjoy life, in spite of adversity.A nice dinner
Why do you think they send me all these gifts? ( Probably since you didn't have to cook that night lol ) Because I'm a gentleman when I take you out. (no crude remarks or inappropriate talk, interested in hearing what you want out of life, and honest enough to realize that might not be me. Glad to see some intelligent woman don't view this as an inquisition, and enjoy some pleasant chit chat over a nice meal.) Yes I'm listening to you, and understand that some of the people you met on this POF are a nightmare.Be creative, a safe public place with a little ambiance. Because I feel so good about life, going to treat you like royalty regardless of the outcome. Enjoy the no expectation date and just be yourself. It takes a long time to get to know someone, unless they have no depth. Catch my drift Ha Ha Thanks again for all those nice emails and gifts,
