The simple truth is that the older we get the harder it is to find someone that is compatible....or that wants to take the time to get to know someone else. My philosophy is that a first date is akin to a job interview....think about it !
My family consists of 2 young Collies mostly. Very creative (artistic) with a multitude of matching interests/ hobbies. I actually prefer simpler activites so I like to say that I am easily entertained. Never learned or found a way to enjoy doing many things on my own but the list of things I have enjoyed, with company, is too long to begin to list. I also consider myself to be very down to earth and simple....printed t-shirts and jeans are what I wear at home most days, even in winter. The worst part of me is that I am a veteran with PTSD but have never done drugs, been an alcoholic, etc. I do admit that I probably come off as guarded until I can get to know someone.
I am not looking for FWB or anything similar but would like to find a friend to do some things with. I would not avoid a LTR but am skeptical of finding one.Conversely, I am not a social butterfly. From the picture I would consider myself a few pounds overweight and I apologize for preferring a woman to be similar or less. I am not comfortable with the BBW notion at all and I have probably missed meeting some very wonderful people but I feel this way about men and women equally.
I do have a sense of humor and smile, laugh and roar at some of the Looney Tunes (Coyote and Roadrunner are a personal favorite) including the newest Geico commercial and want to go back to both Disney parks "one of these days" so in my own way it could be said that I am still a kid at heart.
The other negative is that I missed the mind-reading classes ever so long ago so please say what you think clearly. Sorry but I cannot read facetiousness in an email. I also must have missed the classes taught on how to read between the lines.
