Hello! I'm 47, stand 6'2", 220 lbs. with brown hair and eyes. I've been guilty of being a workaholic,but it's high time to change that! Kinda new with this on-line trip, but Life is Short! I enjoy listening to music (anything but gangsta-rap and opera!), movies, walks/hikes, the beach, the stars,good conversation, stimulating companions, FUN! Don't really consider myself "unique", but I'll admit up-front that I'm a Nice Guy who values Honesty, Simplicity and Directness. I've had enough of BS and Games - get enough of that on the job! - I appreciate both Interior and Exterior Beauty in all things, Women included! There are, like, 57 "I-Statements" in this paragraph already, which pretty much creeps me out! Not the self-centered type, and not looking for that, either. I loathe talking about myself like this, but am always willing to answer questions! Just know that my answers are more often than not pretty direct!
Basically, I'm looking for a Friend, a Companion - amd if things can comfortably escalate from there, so be it! But to me, an honest friendship is the Foundation to All!
SORRY - I AM NOT UPGRADED MEMBER AND CANNOT VIEW "MEET MEs".
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I've been out of the Dating "Scene" for so long, I'm not even sure what The Rules are these days! But I'd imagine a First Date might involve a relaxing meal, walking a beach, prowling a book or music store (do they still have music stores?), being somewhere scenic and talking / listening. Discovering what each other are about, sharing & respecting opinions and points of view. There can be a sense of pressure or being uptight associated with a First Date - kinda like a job interview! And I'd just as soon steer clear of that trip! For me, I guess it comes down to being relaxed and comfortable enough with each other to Be Real, letting us both see what the other is about. Sounds kinda esoteric - but doesn't that make sense?
