I'm very easy going and down to earth and looking for the same in a partner. I usually try to look for the good in things. It makes life so much better. I’m not in to drama of any sort so if you happen to be, please pass me by. Also I’m not in to games and have no time for flaky women. Finally, I’m looking for someone that is looking to hopefully find a long lasting monogamous relationship. If you are one to date more then one man at a time, please do not waste my time. When I meet someone I give them my full attention. I will not talk to other women that could be potential partners. How can one focus on really getting to know someone when they are going out and/or communicating with more then one person? I don’t think it’s fair to anyone involved. It may seem old fashioned, but that’s how I am.
Now on to a little about me…
I’m very creative (drawing, painting, photography, videography, building, designing, etc.)
I enjoy going to concerts and like many types of music. My musical tastes are all over the board.
I enjoy going to comedy clubs. Back in 2007 I started doing open mic nights when I can. It’s great when you can make people laugh. On that note, I’m not the class clown type.
I have been at the same job for almost 35 years now. I'm a few years away from retiring from my current job. At that point I will then have time to do more things I enjoy and work on/in more creative outlets.
I have one grown son (living on his own) that I raised on my own from the time he was 5.
I work out a few times a week to stay in shape, but I have a weakness for dark chocolate and some sweets.
I don't drink. I don't like the taste of alcohol and I don't mind if someone I date drinks as long as it's not in excess. I have never used/tried any illegal drugs.
I enjoy weekend getaways and day trips. Tahoe is one of my favorite getaways. Another favorite place is Disneyland. I love being by water - lakes or the beach.
Finally, I loathe texting, so if we decide to communicate and meet, I'm one to talk on the phone (preferably) or e-mail in order to communicate in the beginning. I also like to meet sooner then later since you really cannot tell if there is any chemistry over the phone or in an e-mail, so why waste precious time.
What I'm looking for...
I'm looking to find a solid long lasting relationship with ONE special person. I'm not in to dating a lot of women. I would like someone that is also looking for ONE special person. Great communication and honesty are important. Hopefully you’re easy going, affectionate and like holding hands, kissing, and even sexual flirting with each other anywhere we might be. You also like a blend of staying home as well as going out.
No Picture - No Reply. You know what I look like so it's only fair. That goes for photos where you're a mile away or have on sunglasses in all your photos. Eyes say a lot to me...
If you made it through all of this, Thank You for reading my profile. If there is anything more you would like to know, write and ask. Don't be shy. If I’m not your type, I wish you the best of luck in your search…
For a first date I think something simple like meeting for coffee is good because we can see if there is any chemistry between us. If there is, we can plan another date or even extent the initial meeting.
I prefer meeting sooner then later. I've wasted several weeks on a few occasions e-mailing and talking on the phone (where all seemed great), only to meet in person and find out there is no chemistry at all. Who wants to waste their time on something that is not there to begin with?
