About Me

I am looking for someone to date and see where it leads. Though I am older, people often guess my age at around 35, and I really do look and act younger than my age, which is why I tend to date woman younger than myself (30 and up), but I'm NOT a fanatic about that. To put it another way, since many have misunderstood what I have said here, I do and have dated women older than what I have just specified. I'm not tied to dating women of a certain age range. I just don't want to date someone who could be mistaken for my mother. I'm not trying to be mean or shallow, just honest.

I work out a lot, so if you're a person who is not already in shape, naturally thin or hwp, we will probably not click. Again, to correct another misunderstanding, naturally thin, or some in-the-ballpark variation thereof, is just fine with me. Also, I do not smoke or do drugs in any way and would prefer a partner who doesn't as well. Drugs I can't and won't tolerate, but if you smoke, that's not necessarily a "deal-killer" for me.

I'm a well-rounded, college-educated person, so someone who has a similar academic and life-experience background would be a plus for me. I like to laugh and have a good sense of humor. I would find it hard to get along with someone who is not that way as well.

I live alone and have my own home and car. I do not have any children and am not really looking to have any children of my own right now--not that I would not want that in the future, but it would have to be with someone who I think is very special. Moreover, I do not have any issues with dating women who already have children of their own, and I understand that whenever you date a woman with children that it's a package deal. I wouldn't look to take away from someone the time and energy she spends with her children so long as she can find some quality time to spend with me, too.

Chemistry is important, and you just never know when you will meet someone with whom you have that special spark. Even if you think you do not match what I am looking for from my profile, if you're interested in chatting with me, go ahead and contact me anyway. I welcome all responses. You just never know! If anyone would like to know more about me, feel free to ask.

Thanks for reading!

Manners update:

1. If you agree to meet someone, actually meet that person, then sit across from him while you are constantly texting or taking calls on your cell phone, you are being rude. Turn off the phone and try to have a conversation. If you agree to meet with me and text / call non-stop in front of me, I will politely excuse myself and get up and leave. Bet on it!

2. If someone sends you a friendly greeting through POF, a polite reply, even if you are not interested, never hurts. No one likes to be ignored, and treating others as you yourself would like to be treated is usually the best policy.

Advice alert:

This is for that select group of women on POF that I like to term the POF princesses (does not refer to all woman on POF)....

If you're honestly looking for a great relationship, try looking for someone who actually makes you happy instead of someone whom you think makes you look good.

If you don't like being "played," then don't be players yourselves. Honesty maybe hard at times--but it is always honorable!

When you say you're looking for a guy who is decent, caring, funny, honest, etc., when one actually contacts you, maybe try saying hi back.

Finally, and this is for everyone, I think. If you ever start to think you are too good to talk to or meet with other POF members, and you keep wondering why you are not enjoying success in the relationship department, maybe it's your ego that's getting in the way.

Just some food for thought, "your majesties," lol!

An Observation: I was looking at one of my dogs and a thought occurred to me. You can be kind and good to a dog, and the dog will be the same in return. As human beings, however, that's not always the case. Pretty sad when you think about it.

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
To me, first dates should be low-key. That way there are not a lot of expectations. A good first date would be lunch or dinner somewhere nice, followed by a walk in the park or a few drinks in a quiet, cozy pub or sports bar.
