Note on messages from me: If I message you it 100% is NOT inappropriate. Many times I did not ask you out, and merely made suggestions or shared information on something in your profile I am familiar with and I thought it might help you, commented on something you said or asked, etc. Taking one look at my photo and deciding not to read what I sent might very well be your loss of some good info/advice. If you read it and don't want to reply, then don't. That said, if I message you and you don't reply I will not message you again (unless you change your photo and I don't realize I messaged you before). If you do reply, and we are having a conversation and you stop responding, you won't get more than another couple of messages before I realize you're not responding and stop. I'm not here to make anyone miserable. If you say you want someone to talk to I might try to start a conversation if you have common interests - if you judge the people you have online conversations with by the same standards as whether you would date them you might be missing out on some great information, a sympathetic shoulder, or who knows what else. I try to be nice and reply to every reasonably crafted message I get, but you will get back what you put into it - if you say Hi, all you might get back is Hi.... Anyway, if you took a moment to read what I sent you I hope you found it of some value! Also note I am just about everywhere online with this same screen name - I have nothing to hide.
I would like to have someone that can deal with my twisted sense of humor and can dish it out as well as take it; with some common interests, plus a few new ones for me to check out, such as art/photography/theater, bieng outdoors for walking, biking, geocaching, camping in other than commercial campgrounds, and other such outdoor activities. I'm hoping to find someone who likes a variety of outdoor activities as I'm trying to stay active :o)
I'm not a big party person, so if you spend the majority of your free time hanging out in the local saloons I'm not going to be there that often. I do like to go out, dance and have fun, mind you, but not as a required weekly (or more than weekly) activity! Excessively negative or judgmental people tend to drain my energy and I try to avoid those situations and the resulting drama. Sure, everyone has bad days and things happen, and I'm a very supportive person and a great listener but I don't want to live in a soap opera either! It would be nice to work together to decide what to do and surprise each other once in a while with different ideas out of the blue :o) There's plenty more to explore here - all you have to do is ask!
I do have a sarcastic sense of humor - I can take the smallest of things and make a joke out of it just with a look or a smile. I have been told I should do stand up, but I would depend on the hecklers to give me ideas.
OK, this is a start. See anything here you like? Why not drop me a note, say hi, ask me a question, or give me your professional critique of my profile!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a splendiforous day!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Let's discuss some ideas and find something we're both comfortable with. Maybe we can go geocaching for an afternoon and then grab a quick bite to eat. Have you ever been geocaching? It's a pretty cool treasure hunting kind of adventure you do with a GPS receiver! Being outdoors working together to solve puzzles and find hidden objects is a great way to interact with each other and see how we get along as a team! We could also grab our cameras and head somewhere to photograph the world, go for a nice walk - I'm sure we can agree on something. I'm open for most anything as long as it's mostly legal and fairly safe!
