I came to Austin 20 years ago for college and never left. I am pretty independent, own my home & am comfortable on my own. I'm not a Disney princess waiting to be rescued, but everything would be more fun with someone else to share it with.
I went to London last year and will be in Paris in December. I enjoy weekend road trips, but I also love quiet time at home. I'm pretty easy to entertain, and don't need anything extravagant to have a great time. I love a good fishing trip, most sporting events and movies, events at Alamo, Violet Crown or Paramount. Shopping is a sport...bookstores, antique stores, thrift stores, outdoor markets, outlets, the mall...I'll shop anywhere!
I've never required legal services. I like shiny & sparkly. I have friends & you should as well. I talk to my sweet dog, & I own lots of books. I bleed orange, but it's okay if you don't. I'm tolerant like that. Shopping, magazines, vodka & desserts are my guilty pleasures. I don't drink coffee, but I love a vanilla coke from Sonic & passion tea lemonade from Starbuck's. I've seen the Mavs, Astros (v. Mets) & Rangers (v. Yankees). I've been to 11 of the original Big 12 universities. I own my own pole (or two) & tackle box, but sometimes I need help getting fish off the line. I can cook a little, but I'd much rather clean up after someone else cooks. I can jump a car battery, check the oil & properly inflate the tires. I like smart, witty, honest, compassionate & a touch of old-fashioned charm. What else?
I'd like to meet someone close to my age (I'm really 42) & I'd prefer not to exchange messages for days & days.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I enjoy meeting people close to my age who live in the Austin area for good conversation with food, fun drinks, trivia or music.
