Looking for a friend/lover/companion. Someone to walk & talk or hike with would be great.
I'd like someone who is physically and emotionally available, will love me for my mind, not my body but would rather play with my body, not play with my mind. Seems like a pretty simple concept....easy to grasp =).
Someone who can carry on an intelligent conversation. For every person you meet who has that spark of genius there are thousands more walking around with ignition problems.
I enjoy the company of someone who has a sense of humor and understands my warped one. ; ).
Someone who can laugh at themselves - I don't think anyone should take themselves too seriously.
I'm a pretty happy person. That doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It just means that I've decided to look beyond the imperfections. We all have things for which to be grateful.
I don't need someone to "complete" me. I look at it as icing on the cake.
I'm a huge Bears fan, I prefer a pub to a club, my political views lean more towards the liberal crowd. I'm a fan of Bill Maher and Jon Stewart. and I believe the less we hear from Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh the better. Yes, I am a Liberal and proud to be.one. I like lots of different music, except for rap and really really heavy headbanging metal. Everything from Etta James to Van Halen. I believe everyone should go to a Jimmy Buffett concert at least once, if not more. It's as much fun as a person can have without breaking any laws. Fins up!!!
I should probably add that I have stopped coloring my hair. I've decided to embrace my age and my gray (I prefer silver) hair. I turned 60 years old recently and I don't want to waste time and money being a slave to chemical color. It's silly. So I have a lovely (not really) silver halo while it's growing out.
Addendum: Just to save time, I'll add here that I prefer dating non-smokers (kind of a big thing with me). I'm not being b*tchy, just being honest. I prefer meeting single men. I'd rather have my own to play with, not someone else's. Thanks for respecting my wishes. =).
If you're looking for someone to accompany you to church, I'm probably not your girl. Yes I was raised Catholic but I don't attend church anymore. I lean more towards good karma rather than misguided dogma. I believe there is more than one road to the Divine.
I haven't had good luck dating people who aren't fairly "local" (actually I haven't had good luck dating at all!! lol) so I tend to avoid that frustration now. when I get these "so and so" wants to meet you, I take it with a grain of salt, someone saying they like my picture. I usually don't respond unless someone actually writes to me. Just an FYI.
by the way, I've been transitioning to a more plant based diet. so I won't be going for a steak or a burger on a date. I have 3 cats (one belongs to my son who has moved back home for a while) and I just recently adopted a 4 year old part german shepherd, part husky from a local rescue. He's my best friend and we walk all the time on the bike path!! He gets me off the couch just like a best friend would do.
And, I'm not Mrs Robinson. She died a couple of years ago. but thanks for your interest! Rent the DVD if you want to experience an "older woman". The Graduate is a great movie!
POF made me choose a word to describe my personality. I chose hippy but I think it's supposed to be hippie, lol, like... peace signs, getting back to nature, etc. oh well.
And, I'm actually 60. I was told (by a male friend) that nobody would see my profile if I put my true age here. Yes, the pictures are fairly recent. So if it's a problem, I guess I won't hear from you. But at least I made ya look ; )
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
a first date..hmmmmm. coffee. walk on the bike path. keep it simple.
p.s. I hate that they required me to "post my intention, i.e. dating or relationship, etc. If you put "dating" it makes you look like a serial dater. if you put "relationship" it makes you look like you're hunting for a spouse. I'm doing neither of those. It would be nice if I meet someone nice but I don't have high hopes. I haven't even been meeting or dating in a while. I have some things that I'm trying to improve about myself. I've worked 12 hour night shifts for the past 5 years and I've put on a few pounds that I'm not happy about so I'm trying to get them off. But then again.... if someone doesn't want me at my worst, they sure as h*ll don't deserve me at my best. did Marilyn Monroe say that? ; )
I don't like the ambitious question either. Yes, I'm ambitious to reach retirement age so I can do something fun.
