Hello, I am wondering and not too shy to find out, who you are. Who am I? I will tell you a little bit, actually I was one of the first members of POF when it started in 2004. WHOA you might think.....wtheck 2004? 11 years ago! Am I addicted to dating sites? Am I obsessed? Am I a compulsive serial dating site member? Do I have multiple (no not personalities) profiles on other date sites? (Wouldn't it be weirder to have multiple profiles on the same site?) OOOh that gives me the creeps! So anyway, I met someone on POF in 2005, we became a couple. Still know each other but heading down different paths. 10 years may not be a total success story, however it was enough proof in my pudding, to give another shot, so lets see how it goes. I do not desire meeting someone that lives a long distance. (I'm setting my interest in meeting no more than 20 miles from where I live, to start. I can always update and expand the distance at any time.) So, please no long distance although I'm not against long term. Onward, here I go... Dating sites have both good and bad reputations, right? And yet here we are. I believe that meeting someone from the internet isn't necessarily good or bad. My attitude is on the positive, as I re-enable my profile to put out there. I would like to expand my horizons, see some possibilities and options for dating again. I am open to new experiences as well. ???????
Introducing ourselves here eliminates the old: “we met through an acquaintance” (which have no guarantees and the same goes for meeting that someone at work, y'all know how that can turn out.) ;) Meeting is a good thing, in and of itself but what counts is, was it as good for me, as it was for you? And same, was it as good for you as it was for me? Calm down now :) I'm talking about if/when we "meet" that makes it matter, right? I'll break it down to chemistry and electricity. Is electricity good or bad? Doesn't that depends on how you use it? It’s a great thing to turn on a light in the dark, allowing you to see, right? One of the ways we might cook is from electricity and so on. But if you use electricity incorrectly it can have damaging affects (and effects) causing unwanted fires, if wires are not grounded or bad wiring....all kinds of problems may occur and finding the exact point of culprit may be hard to locate exactly. It can be expensive to fix if faulty. How important is chemistry? I find it to be amazing, but one nano gram of something added or taken away will change the properties and you no longer have the result you were looking for. Yes you get it, I am using a couple metaphors as to where I stand (or swim I should say) regarding online dating. Appropriate use of this venue and don't over load circuit, maybe I'll see a light shining in you, you in me and possibly there will be just enough heat to make a good.......... impression to each other, for the first step, a few emails.....to the second step; a talk on the telly, which could lead to meeting in person. OK? So far?
Well I think that is enough banter from me.
If you like what you see
and in some way agree
that I may just be……….;)
And you find yourself 1dring like I am,
Be sincere and have fun, is what I plan.
My name is Caroline
P.S. Harley Davidson welcome. (I appreciate nice biceps ;) I also wish to meet a man that actually likes his choice of work/career, but not a workaholic. Possibly someone close to "retirement". I especially look for contentment. I sold my home 1 year ago. (mortgage free) Not really interested in buying another one especially not as a single retired female. More on me later (did I just say moron me?) Hahhah :>
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Nothing elaborate, a place to say hi and see from there (a drink is okay) But not a dinner date for our first meeting.
