Hello! Dating while you're in your 50s seems to be quite a complex task. I'm looking to begin by finding someone to go out and have lunch or dinner with and discuss topics in general. I find that people are like onions, you have to slowly peel back each layer to find out what's at the core. It would be great to find somebody I could get along with, to see if we could tolerate each other's Idiosyncrasies, and see if there is a potential for a long term relationship. If you speak Russian, German or French, that would be a plus as I have an interest in learning one of those languages. FYI, I'm in a public safety job so I'm on shift work w/long hours. And I have a long commute from Pa to the DC suburbs. In my free time I like to ride on Pa's back roads on my old Kawasaki (got rid of the Harley, sorry) or when it's cold just a drive in the car. Good luck to all in your search.
PS: I know the metro DC area well, before moving to Pa. I lived in Reston.
