If you're interested, don't drop the ball...I mean fish... I have no problem making the initial contact (text/talk). However, I will not be in a one-sided relationship with no reciprocity and I would expect you to make the next call/text. With that being said: Hello, I am an attractive 54 year old, mature, intelligent,honest, responsible and committed woman. I am seeking same in male. I would like to talk on the phone and eventually meet in person for a cup of coffee. I am not into bars and crowded places. Sorry, I am not into "Harley Dudes" as well. Also, if you are a smoker--date a dragon. I am looking for one person to build a relationship with based on trust and friendship first. If your agenda is different, "save your breath, you will need it to blow up your girlfriend". If you are looking for a relationship to run its course in a day and a half, I am not the person for you...If you cannot commit to a phone call, I am not the person for you...If you are not willing to participate in growing the relationship by putting forth energy and interest, I am not the person for you... I like to stay active and I am a hard-worker. I will tell you more when we exchange numbers rather than email endlessly. p.s.~please be at least 5' 10". thanks and good luck.
