DO NOT MESSAGE ME IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR "fooling around, sexual encounter, casual hook-up" I am looking for something real! So many bottom feeders on here, Im ready to pull in my line & swim to a different ocean! Lol
I'm looking for the right connection & chemistry, with proper intentions going forward from meeting. The rest is in God/fates hands...
If your profile says "looking for a relationship" & we connect, I'd hope to put the tech ADD aside, which is so bad with our smart phones & pursue each other to figure it out... Whats wrong with planning another date if we had fun on the 1st one? Let's go for a hike, bike ride, skiing, to a game, to watch the sunset, to the dine in theater... Let's just do it together!
At this point, Im old enough to know what I want & when I find it, I am "all in" without rules. Its a catch 22 sometimes, but its who I am.... Passionate, determined & unafraid! I have tons of energy & want a partner - yes I said partner, who can keep up! Ive been bit by the travel bug; been in 13 countries since July 2012.
Ideally I'd like to share activities, interest, & life. I believe this person will ultimately be my best friend, yen to my yang. Surprisingly (to some), I prefer someone more low key & demure than I am, but he will need to hang with my energy; he can calm me down, & I will bring him up, he is strong enough not to be threatened!
I want a man who knows what it means to be a gentleman, who knows how to treat a lady! A man with character, PASSION (& I mean about more than sex), integrity, who loves his family, keeps his commitments, & a firm set of beliefs, who is secure with whom he is, & is control, without a need to control (important difference). Appearently that is a tall order these days. Chemistry (online = pictures) is great but looks only take us so far... As my grandparents & parents always said "pretty is, is pretty does" & while online meeting makes scouring the singles easy, I do believe, somewhere out there, there is that needle in the haystack, & I believe good things can come from meeting online, if you are open to truly getting to know one another, and take the time to pay attention.
My moms advice that I take heed.... "treat your man like a King & guess who gets to be Queen" now... onward to finding the one who deserves & appreciates me, & gets to be my knight in shining armour (corny - but kind of true) Yes... Im a hopeful romantic, if you couldnt tell!
+++Does online dating work? The answer is in the saying, "the grass is always greener where you water it". It works if you put in the effort, keep an open mind, & want it to. Ive met someone on POF I enjoyed time getting to know, but the problem... he said, "plenty of fish, plenty of fun, you cant think anything serious will come from this!" Well duh! Not with that attitude! & Another experience; Nice couple of dates, but was disappointed when he started messaging one of my friends (without knowing, all while telling me he was buried with work, talk soon!). Players not wanted... keep clicking.
if relationships were easy, we wouldnt all be on here now would we!?
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Does anyone know how to "date" anymore? It is great to have a place to just chat, & enjoy each others company, however, I love a man with a plan & having a date that is an activity planned! Something more than drinks, or a meal! Not a necessity but its fun to interact together. Sunset, beach cruising, bowling, concerts, sporting events, hiking, skating, boating, skiing! (' ')
