I've been in Salem for a year and I'm still getting to know where things are. I like it here but I do miss the Portland area sometimes.
Before you go any further you should probably know a few things about me.
I'm intelligent, well read, opinionated and capable of poking holes in flimsy logic. I'm also very open minded and I believe that all belief structures are valid. That being said I don't need to be converted. My Christian friends have learned not to have religious discussions with me because logic just isn't a pretty wreath of flowers which smell bad.
By the way, if you understood the logic comment then stop now and write me a message. Really.
I don't drive because I choose not too. If one of your criteria for a date is that he has a car then go elsewhere. I have better things to spend money on than a car at the current prices. I have other things to accomplish before I worry about that.
I'm interested in dating and keeping it light. If something develops then fantastic. Try starting with messages and then we can move on to coffee and conversation. The sooner the better actually. I have no desire to spend a lot of time doing messages.
