So what brings me to online dating? I'm a real old school kind of guy. I don't watch reality TV, I approach people I'm interested in talking to, and I don't have or want a smartphone. I like doing real things with people I am genuinely interested in spending time with, and would like to meet someone that thinks in a similar manner.
A few other things I like:
Going out for food and drinks socially and having a laugh with good friends.
Being outside when the weather is nice. I never say no to a day trip down the shore. I love the beach and the lifestyle that surrounds it.
Spending evenings or rainy days in listening to records while drinking some wine or sipping some whiskey.
Walking or riding a bike through the city.
A great date for me can be as simple as an afternoon in the park getting to know you, but we can also grab a beer or coffee and see how we get along.
My work schedule is a little unorthodox, but I actually like it a lot. It gives me a lot of variety, but some people can't handle it. It goes a little something like this:
I work on call around the clock on a 2 hour call window, which means I have to report to work 2 hours after I get a call. I have two days off each week that I don't have to worry about being called, and they rotate from week to week. For example, this week I may be off Friday and Saturday, and next week I will have off Saturday and Sunday, then the week after that I'm off Sunday and Monday, and so on. Some weeks I may be called all 5 days, and some weeks I may only be called for 3 of my 5 days. If you can figure out how this continues congrats you're smart enough to pick up pattern recognition and we might stand a chance!
