After reading a bunch of these, perhaps best to start with the obvious questions and keep it simple. Yes, I have a job, own a car, own a home, Yes, I can, and do, pay my own way. A "keeper"? well, not so fast.....I don't own a Harley, nor have a great desire to run out and buy one. Nothing at all against motorcycles, just not an obsession of mine as it seems to be for many.
Very curious why this whole idea of online "dating" seems so difficult and cumbersome, however I am sincere and don't wish to play games, nor am I just looking for any sort of random hook-up. (Sad that this is somehow necessary to clarify)
I certainly have my preferences, likes and dislikes but I'm not going to list a string of criteria that I'm searching for. We are all unique and seldom does anyone fit a perfect mold that I could create in my head. Nor would I necessarily want them to. At the same time it is highly unlikely that I will meet all of your criteria, or at least most of the lists I have read on here. It seems that its more about compatibility than criteria to me. I don't hold any high expectations for this venue so we'll just see what it leads to. I work a lot, and take care of responsibilities so I can't claim to have had the opportunity to climb Mt. Everest or cruise the continents on my sailboat, yet still won't describe myself as "normal" since I don't know what that means.
Hard to guess what someone might want to know when writing these silly things. I prefer music over television almost all the time, outdoor venues over inside, physically perhaps too slender, but then I don't feel the need to wear a t-shirt at the beach to cover my belly or moobs, I don't consider a baseball hat a fashion accessory, and feel like I can dress myself well enough without even needing to match the animals. I can't really cook though I have learned that when the box says "remove cover before microwaving" that you REALLY should.
It's hard to guess what people would like to know, so ask away. Questions are always good conversation starters. Please say hello, or better yet just a little more than hi but be serious about an eventual meeting. I'm not looking for pen pals nor an endless string of "meets" or dates but rather something, and someone, that has at least the possibility to be special
