UPDATE: Thanks to POF, I found my old G/F of 30 years ago on here by pure accident. This was quite a surprise after decades of not seeing each other. We were both in our 20's the last time......so I'd like to see where this leads to this time. I wish everyone the best of luck & happiness! May you find what you're looking for.
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. We all have baggage, how well we deal with it makes the difference. I think finding someone who speaks a second language would be interesting. If you like to ride motorcycles or own one yourself, that's a plus. Good luck to all in their search
One suggestion that I saw a lady post is to limit the first meeting to one hour and just have a cup of coffee or a drink to see if there is any "connection". The real first date can take place after that.
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.
I know the metro DC area well, before moving to Pa. I lived in Reston, Va.
No slight against anyone, but I prefer someone my age or younger.
I have one full length pic posted, please have at least the same.
First meeting: try a one hour time slot for coffee or a drink to check on compatibility. A light lunch or dinner somewhere mutually acceptable to follow as the real first date if things turn out okay. At the minimum, a phone conversation first and not a date originated via text only.
