So, here's a bit about me:
I appreciate quick wit and a dry sense of humor, and a sense of humor in general!
I'm a bit adventurous - but level headed.
I really like to be outside in the summer. Any activity, just give me sunshine! In the winter I might ski - although I'm just as happy with a glass of wine in front of the fireplace. I jokingly call myself a mountain goat, because if there is a cliff or an edge or any scalable height, I'm there. No surprise, I love hiking!
I'm sincere and authentic. Unpretentious and real .... Looking for same. I have a big laugh and a big smile, both used regularly.
I've worked for everything I have, I have a modest but lovely home. I would like someone to share life with, grow together, do good works together, care for each other, and hey, let's travel! I'm planning a trip to Italy, and already learning Italian.
Things I love:
Photography for fun and/ or profit.
A little sweat and sore muscles
My friends (the family I choose)
My family (who are a state away – I don’t see them enough right now)
Deep Tissue Massage (so good it hurts!)
A comfy bed
Listening to small children as they play/imagine
The sound of runoff streams when hiking in the mountains
Lying in a hammock
( not necessarily in that order)
I'm looking for a good man who is caring and kind - and who wants to find someone special, and doesn't date for sport. Rather he is looking for that person who he'd rather be with than without. He is actively seeking a woman worth his time and energy.
The right man for me is one who smiles like an idiot when he sees me, who isn't afraid of commitment, who WANTS to share his life with someone. He will make time for me. ( I will do the same ) Communication is imperative. Life is a a team sport!
Message me if you're young at heart and especially if you look young for your age, and if you don't smoke - ever.
I won't make the first move on here, because I'm not going to date anyone who is not interested in me. If you saw that I read your profile, but didn't message you, that doesn't mean I'm not interested... I might be waiting for you to notice me.
It may also mean that I noticed that you're "non-religious" or "other religion" or just a very bad speller. And okay, I'll say it, if you have NOT posted a bathroom mirror self-portrait, I'm already impressed.
If you're Catholic (or church-going Christian) AND a good speller... AND you're interested... Pursue!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I think an activity is best for a first date, playing pool, going to jazz in the park or even a hike if you can prove you're not an ax murderer!! It's better to do something where we can talk and learn about each other rather than stare at a movie screen or other glowing box.
Coffee is fine too - I'm not too picky.
