Lets Chat soon.
IF YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO READ MY ESSAYS YOU DON'T HAVE TIME FOR A DATE WITH ME. PLEASE read them before contacting me. Thank you.
At the outset, I ask that you please not bother to message me if you don't have a photo or an essay filled in, nor will I reply or consider your profile. This is the digital age and I can't begin to know anything about you without a photo or any info written in the essay section. PLEASE ! NO FOREIGN SCAMMERS OR FAKE PROFILERS. USA ONLY. Thank you. Additionally, it has gotten to the point that I have to insert so many clauses concerning behavior and attitudes , and what I am looking for, that my essays are beginning to sound like a pre-dating legal contract ,lol. I have no space left for describing myself , not that anyone actually reads these things. They look at the photo, where I live, and decide if they want to 'sleep' with me or not, and start hitting on me, with IM's, e-mails ,and for webcam. That's about how far it goes with alot of you guys.And you guys call women shallow? NOT. Fed up with finding the same thing online I could find at any local bar any nite of the week, the bar mentality. If you are looking for someone to use and abuse go find it elsewhere. Fed up with that also.
I am a decent, mature , responsible artsy/sporty gal. I can be fun,spontaneous, easy to talk to, am down to earth and realistic and think I have a good sense of humor. I regard myself as a nice mix of old fashioned and new fangled.
I am more of a slow country road and not a fast lane on a super highway kind of person. Guess that makes me a type B personality. I am pretty much a 'what u see is what u get' kind of person, nothing pretentious here.
Aside from an occasional cold or over-doing it I am in fairly good health with no serious medical or physical disabilities or conditions.
I try to keep an open mind with people on these sites. What initially appears as not a possibility can change and often does .
I think good conversation is as important a part of a relationship as any other part and is essential for staying connected. I also think its important to have parameters and balance in relationships.
My political views are moderate left but I vote based on the candidate.
Work history includes banking, retail, restaurant, photography, manufacturing.
I mostly like to do simple doable activities in a relaxed casual manner that gives me quality time with someone -go out for a cup of java, lunch in the park,dinner & a movie, cookouts & hangin out in the hammock, play cards/pool/darts, music/theater/sports events, fairs/festivals,day trip drives. Or just stay home and hang out on the couch ,order a pizza or make a bowl of popcorn,put in a movie or watch a ballgame . A friendly bowling match works too.
The perfect date would be going to Conklins Barn 2 dinner theater in Goodfield, Illinois.
I have no current complications(i.e. ex husbands or boyfriends lurking around trying to stay in the picture/situation, lol ).
My sexual orientation is straight, no group stuff, just old fashioned 1-on-1 guy/gal scenario.
I am intelligent, witty, and creative
