I'm positive and like positive people to befriend and date. I'm in good health, but I am a type 2 diabetic so I like to eat healthy. I am a reformed smoker I quit 17 yrs ago. I prefer a non smoker to date. I like to be active but like down time too movie watching etc. I'm very opinionated but open to new ideas and different perspectives.
I don't drink but don't mind drinking situations or people who can social drink and control it. My back is not happy assisting drunks to the car.
I'm going to tell you my thoughts. I'm 67 and do not have time for deceit or games.
I love women and usually find something attractive about most women regardless of size age etc.If honesty is important here you don't want to start an honest relationship with a blatant overstatement of the facts. Let me clarify that statement. Forty pounds is not a few and if all your friends are plus size that does not mean you are about average size.If honesty is important for you to receive, then it should be given as well. If you posted a twenty year old photo say it is and post a recent one. If you want honesty you have to be honest.
I believe in God and have what I feel is a loving relationship with him, but I'm not religious. Weddings and funerals to respect my family and friends will be my only trips to churches of any kind. So if going to church is something you want to do as a couple, pass me by. I'm willing to let you worship as you please, I expect the same respect from you. I'm going to be myself faults and all, I hope if we meet you'll be yourself as well. I want to enjoy the time I have left without drama. I don't commit after three dates or three weeks. It takes me longer than most to have those feelings about someone.
I like oldies DooWop,Classic rock, and Blues is a favorite. I especially love live music of most genres. This area has great blue grass festivals.
I think the best first dates are where there's lots of conversation time dinner, and a walk is a good example. A game of pool or bowling would be fun of coarse a band ,music and food are usually better.
