Being a serious starving artist for 30 plus years was me, my life. I am extremely eclectic. Can't be put in a box. If someone can not relate to my art, and writing, they cannot relate to me and I have no interest in niceties and small talk just to be polite. I need someone to get me out of the hermitage a few times a month, for "Interesting and Meaningful" conversation, sunshine and fresh air. I am politically progressive and wondering where all the bumper stickers went. I find it interesting and very concerning that so few men understand what I just said. If you can not hold a meaningful conversation via email, don't bother with me, I hate wasting time with the more 'common' male mentality and perceived needs. I hate being tethered to a phone, not phone chatty AT ALL. Not looking for romance, and do not like being forced to run evasive maneuvers when a guy jumps immediately from first 'meeting over coffee' into courtship mode.
I never 'go fishing' on this site, so if you got an email them saying that I want to meet you, I never said that. It was probably some algorithm in their program to stir the pot. But if you want to meet me, as an interesting human being, let me know.
****a-doodle-doos and those whose main concern is strutting their stuff and proving their equipment still works need not apply, because to me that is of the least importance in a relationship. For a while my profile header was something along the lines of "Looking for Nice Older Man with ED". It was quite amusing the responses I got from guys who thought ED meant 'education', one being an MIT grad. I believe if they want to ban abortion they should also ban boner pills. I am not opposed to sex or the opposite sex, but, just all the BS that seems to go hand in hand with all the games most people play, and skewed priorities.
I've been on POF 6 or more years and have made, and still have, some most excellent male friends met here.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Hang out somewhere nice and comfortable, more natural, or eclectic, 'not institutional', or franchised.
