Spelling. Grammar. If you send me a message with the wrong "your" or "too" , forget about it. Smart phones make punctuation a bit tricky, so I'm more forgiving on that front. I'm not kidding about this; If you can't communicate through writing, don't bother.
I'm not interested in teaching you about what makes me tick. You either understand it, or you don't. (See below)
On a weekend rainy day, I feel compelled to go root around used book stores, antique stores. On a sunny day, garden, walk a beach town, discover a new restaurant.
Please, if you contact me, be serious about your desire for a relationship. I'm looking to make a real connection with someone, and that involves spending time together.
And for heaven's sake, have a sense of humor, and don't take yourself too seriously!
