Single professional, no children. East coast transplant here in CA now for 28 years- I wonder if I am considered a local yet...? New to OC after living in Redondo Beach for the majority of that time, I wish I would have moved here sooner.
Now that I realize that the majority of everyone on never reads this, please remember life is in the details.
We all have enough self awareness now to know what we want and typically can figure out within a couple hours if there is a connection (those days where 98.6 degrees, most of your teeth, and being anatomically correct qualifying as a match went away a long time ago). Distance can be an issue, not that it can't work, but being more than 30+ minutes away can severely limit any type of spontaneity. I do read your profiles, and thankfully most of you are quite specific about yourselves and what you are looking for (sorry that me NOT being 6'+ ruined your pictures- don't worry, It's OK for you to leave the heels on... I won't even get into the scientific theorems re: horizontal equalization or the redistribution of assets).
It is pretty obvious that women on this site are given a 'Hey there' button, not on our side. For me using the favorite function serves two purposes; primarily as a reminder to type a 'Hello' note when I am on my computer later (I don't type very much when using the phone App, and I do like to take the time to send a proper response), secondarily it gives you a chance to remove me if you clearly see there would be no connection. No hard feelings, and the same thing goes for messages sent; it is better to not respond if there is no interest. Thank you If you are going to take the time to respond or send a message, no harm including your first name as part of a final salutation. I know most of you get hundreds of inquiries and it easy to get desensitized with this process. I read about so many immature and perverted actions that you receive, not all of us are like that, you must take POF with with a grain of salt - You Get What You Pay For!! Ha-ha! (All we have to put up with is the occasional catfish & TS sneaking in under the radar, and even then most make it pretty clear up front so there are no surprises springing out later!). 'Meet Me'- is a pointless function, should not have a 'No' button which still creates an email saying someone wants to meet you.
Now with all that being said:
My hobbies are quite varied, but mostly it is playing/teaching golf when I have time. I am now with a new healthcare consulting firm, working long hours but thankfully minimal travel needed at this point. That being stated- I now do have time to entertain my longtime thoughts and ideas to successfully open and run my own restaurant. I do know how to cook, and it is always good!
Knowing what a combination package I am, they wanted to break the mold before I was made but too late- I'm here! My sense of humor & empathic nature are most unique. Also, having lived with my oldest sister when I was younger further enhanced my knowledge of women, just follow the prime directive she instilled when I was in her house "Do everything I say exactly how I say it...OR ELSE!!" More details to come.
As you wish...
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First date would typically be dinner out. But to get to that point we have to get past first phone call, and possible first quick 'pre-date' (coffee/drinks etc.). Leave the bathroom window unlocked just in case the quick escape is needed....lol.
