I am persistent and tenacious- rarely do i give up, once i have set my mind to something- love to laugh- I accept most as they are- i might discern one is not for me, but that does not mean i think something is wrong with them. Looking for social activity -long distance does not provide such-i will respond to letters, but am not interested in long distance significant relationship.
Though, I am looking for friends; I would not rule out a significant relationship. However, getting to know someone is an important aspect of choosing a significant partner-that is not done in a few dates-if your goal is an immediate long term partner- I am not the best dating prospect 4U. I prefer messages with significant content, but i realize first messages are difficult. i do not chat. I write and contribute on the pof forums. I really enjoy poetry and if you want to sample my plodding, poetry attempts; you can check them out.(my poetry can be found in the POFforums https://forums.plentyoffish.com/datingPosts13255209.aspx
I enjoy live music and dancing- movies-antiquing, bon-fires(have the pit and wood lol), swimming,(being by the water) cards, pool,(not skilled though), orchards, color tours, drives, BTW- Dutch 4me so not about wanting you to spend a boatload of money..Currently in process of home remodel, so breaks from it would be welcome!
If we message a bit and i reply-with no answer from you, and i see you have been online several times since my reply-most often i do not reach out again. in my ballgame, it's out of play when i throw the ball and the receiver drops it..and leaves it. logical game over lol (BTW I may have dropped the ball a few times as: for several months "june-november" my profile was being deleted /"hacked" - then beginning December I was visiting Family in Texas until 2nd week of January-and did not access internet- none of these were intentional slights if i slighted anyone)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
start a topic and run with it. we all have something to say/share. while i am open to messages from all, my liberal mail settings are not to solicit rude messages from pissy childish forumites
