I am Roy, a retired company director. How does one describe yourself? Whichever way you decide to go, you are on a loser,it seems to me.
Think about it.Do you tell some porkies and post a fifteen year old picture? The upside to this approach are loads of messages and lots of first (very short duration, I should think) dates. The downside must be virtually no second dates unless of course your date has also, how should I put this... been exaggerating!
The other popular way seems to be to make yourself terribly dull sounding, hoping to attract a tree hugging, real ale drinking, army boot wearing fell walker, no doubt.
I decided to take the middle way, by being very open and honest and just allow myself the one lie. BUT it is a biggie. My height. I'm actually only 5'9 not 5'10.
No, don't go away, there is a reason for the deception, and this is it.
How many of you tall ladies would have looked at my profile if I hadn't have lied? Be honest now, heightism rules
We are not all the same you know, us sixtysomethings.
I suppose I would describe myself as fairly complicated (I am not a simple soul) honest,undemanding,very laid back, kind by nature and incredibly sexy,of course, LOL
I enjoy meeting interesting people,good conversation, music, reading and cooking.
I am well travelled and have lived and worked in various countries.I am down to earth with a good sense of humour and don't take myself too seriously.
I've been single since my wife died 13 years ago and not being much of a drinker I am finding it difficult to meet members of the opposite sex. Not that I've been looking for somebody for all of that time, you understand. LOL.
This is my first foray into an internet dating site and I have no idea what to expect.
I'm not looking for a 24/7 relationship, at least not to start, I like my own space and respect other's right to theirs. However, I do enjoy and miss female company and the feminine slant on life.
I would like to meet an intelligent (well at least someone who's IQ is bigger than their bust size),feminine woman, somebody who's comfortable in their own body, whatever the size or colour that body is. A lady who's also romantic would be very nice, as would somebody who has at least some regard for men.
I am slightly different from the average 64year old, or so I'm told. People tell me I look younger than my age and my outlook is young and modern. I do actually live in the 21st century.I'm not one of those 'in my day it was better/cheaper .....' type of men. I'm not old before my time, unlike some men of my age.
I'm NOT into long walks in the hills,or strolling hand in hand along a deserted beach in Wales or somewhere similar. Freezing my whatsits off isn't my idea of a fun time. Beaches are for chilling out on with something cold to drink in the sunshine, IMHO.
I enjoy classic cars and motor sport but only in the summer I hasten to add.
Whatever you're into is fine by me,I don't care how you spend your spare time as long as you have some time available to get to know someone and are not judgemental.
I'm not looking for perfection in a woman, Perfection, if it exists at all (which I very much doubt)would be far too mundane for me.
My Ideal Person:
As above. But nothing is cast in stone.Big,small, tall short. I have no preconceived ideas. Everybody is beautiful in their own way but some people keep it well hidden, don't you think?
Oh yeah, another confession........ I'm addicted to Starbucks coffee.
