So here's where I tell you just how wonderful I am, right? :) Don't let the gruff exterior fool you, I'm a teddy bear for the most part, intelligent and outgoing, quick to laugh (especially at myself), slow to anger, thoughtful yet at times impulsive too. You will never have to guess where you stand with me, just ask, and you'll get a truthful answer. I treat others the way I want to be treated, and expect the same in return, so there will be no emotional game playing, lies or ghosting. Far from perfect, try to eat healthy and exercise but I will cop to indulging myself with a big cheeseburger once a week. Being from PA originally, I'm a Philly sports fan, enjoy a diverse range of music, travel when time & money allow, and much, much more. When I'm not working, my lifestyle and wardrobe is much more Jimmy Buffett than Warren Buffett, though it helps if you know who both of those gents are. :)
I'd like to meet a compatible woman to date, get together with once or twice a week to share a meal, watch a game, hear some live music, catch a museum exhibit or a movie, or simply hang out and enjoy each others company (which is not a euphemism for "let's hook up"). Ideally it leads to something more down the road, which would be wonderful, as well as my goal, but let's savor the journey before we begin to worry overly much about the destination. If its right we'll get there soon enough.
Blond, brunette or redhead I don't really have a preference, but brains and bright eyes get my attention every time. I am most often drawn to women in their late 30s to late 50s, non-smoker & light social drinker, curvy is fine (but not BBW), willing & able to laugh at herself often, and have enough free time, no matter how busy her schedule, to make plans with me. Intellect & self-confidence rate high on the list of qualities I'm attracted to, in addition to being kind and thoughtful, relatively attractive and relatively sane (that's always open to debate...lol). If you like what you read so far, don't be bashful, step up and introduce yourself, and tell me what makes you uniquely you. Should we decide to meet I can at a minimum promise you a few laughs and good conversation. Where it goes from there is up to us to decide.
PS - Please, show some initiative and self-confidence by stepping up and introducing yourself. Sending me an email that says "nice profile" or "hi there" is lazy, semantically null, and tells me absolutely nothing about you. In that case don't expect a response.
PPS - AS A REGULAR MEMBER, I CAN'T SEE THOSE "MEET ME" LISTINGS. SEND ME A MESSAGE IF YOU ARE TRULY INTERESTED...THX!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A first date should be something casual and fun, getting acquainted without it seeming like a job interview. I'm not one for the typical dinner and a movie routine as a first date; who ever thought that sitting in a dark room not talking was any way to get to know someone?? How about just a drink or coffee with some good conversation to start? I won't be checking my phone every few minutes, nor should you, I'll be a gentleman and you be a lady, simple enough?
First dates are really just to get the initial meeting out of the way anyway, and get to know each other well enough to decide if you want to go out again. Second date, yes, dinner and a movie possibly, but even better, a ballgame, a visit to a museum, wandering around town window shopping, wherever the spirit takes us. I always say, its not what you're doing, its who you're doing it with; in the right company just about anything can be a good time. If you feel likewise, look me up!
