From Florida now living/working near Atlanta.
Advice on how to quadruple your chances at bottom of profile.
Update: Still in search for the one but giving up on this avenue for awhile, just here for the entertainment but always looking to make new friends...
'Simply looking for someone cute, "to me," a little quirky, possibly has an artistic side who thinks outside the box, has an infectious smile and a kind, adventurous heart."
Seriously seeking my Muse...
Profiles: Love reading them when I have nothing else to do. I'm not a serial dater and living in a small city makes it difficult anyway. So when I've read my morning papers, still drinking some coffee or just bored late at night I read profiles. If you want to know what I thought of yours just ask. If you think there's something wrong with mine do let me know. Please don't be offended if I've stopped by and not contacted you. Then again, maybe I'm waiting for that very elusive adventurous soul to make more than a little effort and take a chance...
I'm a great guy but far from a pushover,"a little bit of a bad boy sometimes so I'm told," also a bit of a sucker for a sweet smile...
I have traveled a lot, especially S.E. Asia, Canada, many tropical islands a few different state's and always find my favorite place to be in a tropical setting near the sea...
Single for 5 years now. I'm an advanced open water diver, sailor and some time artist to name just a few of my hobbies which I don't seem to spend much time enjoying as of late. "I'm missing my Muse..." I love anything to do with the ocean but I also have a great time in a country setting. I'm in my 50s, 100 percent heterosexual male and I have never been married but would very much like to be one day. I have a pretty easy going attitude, very witty, eclectic and I'm a bit of a caretaker. Clubs are fine once in awhile but I'd much rather spend time in the kitchen with that special someone or entertaining friends.
I've been told more than once that I am a very old soul with a young heart. I try and think positive as I believe energy follows thought. Your thoughts trigger your emotions and your emotions determine your experience.I want mine to be good ones as the same for those around me.
I don't have an ideal women but what I tend to be attracted to? "Average to thin," Adventurous, eclectic, energetic, honest, sense of humor, intelligence, feminine, playful, artistic, open minded, big heart, eccentric, with a large dose of sensuality. I'm far from perfect and not seeking perfection...
I am a bit older than stated here for search reasons. The pics and dates are correct.
P.S. Must have real eyebrows and no Hobbit feet... J/K

How to quadruple your chances...
This is aimed at the 40-60 age group from a male perspective. Are you truly looking for a life mate? After reading hundreds of profiles, talking with a fair amount of people and reading several articles I have come up with some ideas to help with finding that special someone. Not rocket science!
Old pictures, unrealistic expectations and little effort won't get you very far. " You reap what you sow!" I find this hard to believe but 90% of the profiles I read have no more than 5 sentences and no interests listed. Very few of them have a clear or updated picture of what someone actually looks like. This is fine if your 20 something and just looking for a hookup. I have read several times that no ones reads the profiles anyway. Guess what, people actually looking for a life partner do read profiles!
Many of the profiles I read are mostly about what someone doesn't want. Men just looking for hookups, boozers, druggies, no teeth etc... This doesn't stop any of them from writing you. You attract what you are so try being as positive as possible when writing your profile.
Now I know this is going to be a hard one and will probably get me some flame mail. If all you want is to be an instant Princess, just join a free dating site. I have actually seen a few profiles with a picture of some women's computer screen on POF showing they have received 50+ new messages apologizing for not getting back to everyone. Sad thing is, I still see them here after more than year. If you think this is untrue just put one picture up of your cleavage and no others and see how much mail you get.
All in all, if your on here for a long period of time and haven't found anyone, realize there is one common denominator, "You." Either your looking for Superman or your profile isn't attracting the person you hope to meet. So what to do about all of this.
Like I stated above, be realistic. This doesn't mean just settle for anyone but realize everyone isn't perfect. There's only one Superman, only so many financially well off with great looks, no baggage and a great heart. Most of us are somewhere in between.
Put some effort into your profile. You don't have to write a book but it would be nice if you wrote enough that we can understand what basic kind of person you are and what you are looking for.
We all know attraction is very important so put a few good pictures up. At least one clear photo of yourself and one body shot then there's no unpleasant surprises.
This is the advice that will quadruple your chances. Because of the way things are on dating sites try actually writing the men you are interested in. Men by far write most first contact messages and rarely get a response. The most common mistake women make on dating sites is not making first contact. If you do write make an effort to write something. 99.9% of the few messages I get say only, "Hey there."
I find it very sad that The National Science Foundation (NSF) reported in its General Social Survey (GSS) that unprecedented numbers of Americans are lonely. Nearly 50%! We have a great way to change this and it's up to you to make an effort to do so.
I wish you all the best in your search...
