First, I actually live in Coconut Creek. We share the same Zip Code with Pompano Beach.
I was born and raised in upstate NY and have lived in NJ, CA, WI, OH and finally FL. This was my last long distance move. I arrived here in June, 99 and wish I had made the move years earlier.
The quality of life is excellent and there is so much to do and see in Florida. The only problem is that very little of what's available is suited for a single. Can you picture calling a better restaurant and asking to reserve an ocean view table for "one"? Not very likely. The same applies to going to concerts, art festivals, theater and even a weekend in Orlando where you can let the "child within" take over for a couple of days.
One of the things I'm looking forward to is being able to delete my profile from any and all dating sites because I've found that one special lady who will be in my life, not just for a long term relationship but rather for a permanent one.
You'll find that I'm easy going and much more willing to "discuss" than to "argue". In a good relationship, both parties should argee to disagree and respect each others opinions. The key word here is "respect".
* I want to address the smoking question. I HAVEN'T had a cigarette in over 15 years however, I do smoke an occasional cigar.
