I have started this on-line dating adventure for two reasons. First of all, I don't seem to meet many single women of a certain age any more. The women I meet are either too young to get the '80s or are already spoken for. Secondly, in putting myself out for public inspection like this, I am finding motivation to move parts of my life forward that had become static.
I grew up in Pittsburgh so, yes, I am a sports guy. I enjoy watching sports (especially baseball) but I do not live and die by the outcome and could even survive without ESPN. I enjoy all of the usual stuff: walks in the park; that first cup of coffe on a sunny Sunday morning; good movies; really, really bad movies; intelligent television; laughing; travelling; wine/vodka/beer (though not always in that order or on the same night); relaxing on the sofa; getting dressed up to go out; spending the day at the beach; sneaking off for a weekend.
I am adventurous enough to try anything once. I like women who can challenge me and push my boundaries. I think that I have lived a good life so far but I have definitely not lived all of it.
It may not be very manly to admit but I am a romantic. I believe that there is someone out there for me, we just haven't found each other yet.
Personally, I support Stand Up 2 Cancer, the American Heart Association, Pets 2 Vets, Planned Parenthood, and the DNC. I am hoping this year to advance my involvement beyond writing a check.
Someone to talk with.
