I am not paying to view who has "liked" my profile -- just bite the bullet and send me a message
IMPORTANT DETAIL 2:
I only respond to messages from people who are in North America
I've been a member of many dating sites for many years, looking through the profiles of different women and only sending them a message -- a thoughtful and respectful message -- if I would like to get to know them better ... and getting near-zero thoughtful replies. I'm (finally) growing weary of it so it's working-out that I'm logging-on less and less regularly ... I may still view and bookmark your profile but I'm becoming less up to the exercise of "what do I say in this message?" so it's best that if you're interested YOU send that first message
I am an introvert, meaning that though I am social and get-along with near anyone, it uses-up a lot of my energy … as a result, I am a homebody and tend to keep to myself a lot. I am loyal, introspective, respectful, and thoughtful, with a curious mind; as a result of my curiosity, I tend to research & read about whatever crosses my mind, then combined with a good memory I am very good at understanding a lot of different relationships, such as politics related to the car industry to the economy to whatever. I like to spend time outdoors when the weather is nice – from a bike ride to just working in the garage – and a few of my hobbies are reading, cars & classic cars, “infrastructure,” and photography.
You are intelligent & thoughtful with a level mind. You have some interests of your own, are willing to share them, and realize it’s OK that if I don’t enjoy a few of your interests as much as you do, same as I realize you may not enjoy a few of mine as much as I do.
- natural curiosity
- planning trips
- being flexible
I don't read books that often anymore, newspaper & magazines seem to be my fill at the moment ... but my favorite books were written by Dickens, Twain, Heinlein, or Philip K. Dick
Empire Records, Rocknrolla, Hopscotch, Interstate 60, Le Mans, and Super Troopers ... haven't heard of one, a few, or all? That's ok, something for us to discuss!
rock, country (banjos are cool!), polka (accordions are cool!), some classical ... a bit eclectic, whatever fits my mood
I like to grill, otherwise go for easy -- yet balanced -- recipes. I'm semi-adventurous for new foods, prefer someone there to interpret what I'm seeing on the menu
- ability to remember small details that will make you melt at the right time
- timer in the kitchen
... and still deciding on the other 3
- whether self-declared "open-minded" individuals realize the irony when they themselves exhibit close-minded behavior
- why didn't she reply back?
- why is she wearing sunglasses in all of her photos?
- do her friends know she is using them as wingmen in her photos?
- hmm ... okcupid says i sent her a message 5.5 years ago ...
