I am looking for someone who would be a good match in all areas that count, with an emphasis on lifestyle. By "lifestyle" I mean a good balance between various activities and relaxation time, bonding time and personal space, and overall a healthy approach and attitude. If that describes you, at least in general, I would love to hear from you. I am in no rush, very happily single, and would not mind waiting for the right person while enjoying the life I currently have.
Everything in my profile is true, and my interests/activities are current. I prefer to hear from people who have similar profiles. My mail settings do not allow users without pictures to contact me. However, if you only have photo(s) from 10+ years ago, I'd rather wait until you post more recent pictures. It is only fair that I should see as much of you as you can see of me.
Photos that display images other than yours belong on Facebook, not on a dating site. If such pic is all you have in your profile, I will report you, because, in addition to violating POF's policy, you are wasting my mouse clicks.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
For the first meeting, Skype would be the best way for me. If we are both interested enough after the first phone call, we exchange Skype IDs and set a date and time to meet via Skype. It only makes sense, the convenience is great. Schedule, distance, and mood permitting, I could sometimes skip Skype and come out for a cup of coffee (tea, water) and a brief conversation.
I do not email (or text) new contacts outside of POF, without first talking on the phone with your number showing on the caller ID.
Upgraded members: If you chose settings to receive messages from upgraded members only, I will not be one of them. If you write and don't hear back from me, this could be one of the reasons.
Have to say this: I see that some profiles get deleted and then reappear as new, more than once. This is so immature and laughable. There could not be a good reason for this. Either POF deleted you for doing something you shouldn't be doing, or you are trying to evade past/future contacts. If you are one of those, please do not write to me, even if I wrote to you first, thanks.
I am also tired of people contacting me on behalf of other people. This spells SCAM, and I will block and report you immediately, be warned.
Will also block anyone who is Married, Separated, Living together, Not Single/Not Looking (the last definition makes no sense, POF).
WARNING: Any institutions or individuals using this site or any of its associated sites for studies, projects, advertising, sales, or any other reason-you DO NOT have permission to use any of my profile or pictures in any form or forum both current and future. If you have or do, it will be considered a violation of my privacy and will be subject to legal ramifications.
