Looked to see if I should update my profile; read it over; I think it does a good job of describing me.
"Me: 56, bright, funny, shy, thoughtful, messy, complex, adventurous, easygoing, sensitive, musical, able to hold a decent conversation, straightforward, supportive, single parent of two mostly adult kids, appreciative, fun, offbeat, literate, mildly Bohemian, financially stable.
You: around my age, intelligent, humorous, straightforward, honest, interesting, kind, liberal, literate, not in any hurry.
Both of us: flea market over NFL, the book over the film, exploring a new town over backpacking, love to sightsee,
I do tend to gravitate toward people who are on the quirkier side, and I suppose they are the type that would want to spend time with me. So although I DO like walks on beaches and moonlight, I'd trade 'em both for a prowl through a deserted warehouse, or a lecture on linguistics. Just sayin'."
I think, on the upside, that I'm extremely easy to get along with, don't like conflict or drama, am good company, am easily entertained and not particularly demanding. On the downside, I am pretty independent and am not looking for rescue or caretaking..
I'd like to meet someone to do things with - day trips, musical events, play a little music, those kinds of things. So many things are better when shared!
