1st things 1st. I haven't been on this online thing for very long but at risk of losing credibility with everyone on here, I'm not 35, I'm 43 years old. Thing is, I was being approached by an age group, well, outside of my preference. 9 out of 10, though very very nice ladies, simply weren't interested in having any more children. And as I might like to make a family someday, this was the only way I could filter through that. I don't take this lightly, so I apologize for this "sleight of hand" wholeheartedly, if you could call it that. Anyway, I hope you can see past this.
Although I'm overly skeptical about this whole online dating phenomena, I admit curiosity puts up a good fight. Not to say that I've never browsed but personally I've had to invest a great deal of time sifting through all the games and charades in hopes of finding some depth which is why I never committed to paying for any of these sites - until now. I've been living in both Miami and Tampa for a while now, but eventually might stay in the Tampa area or nearby. The whole Miami clubbing, partying til dawn thing - got old in like 12minutes. I'd rather be on a bike trail, food and wine fest on the beach, fast-packing through a rainforest, skydiving ,riding my iron horse to the Keys or anything in between.
That being said, I've focused my life efforts on my Friends, Family and work of course. I'm not looking for Ms. Right anymore than I can be Mr. Right for her. Which means there's no such thing as perfect, so not looking for that. I'm far from perfect myself. In fact, all I'm looking for is that undeniable chemical reaction where you know you've found something priceless. I don't think it's about "ordering" a soul mate on here, so there's really no list I can try to put together. Defeats the purpose, right?
If I were to mention the one thing without which I simply could not exist - it would be humor; and the laughter it brings which cures all things. Mine can be a bit sarcastic; sometimes maybe more than a bit, but mostly with myself. Life is filled with no-laughing-matter moments, but the rest...hell, you gotta laugh. You could have everything in life and still be miserable without laughter. To say I'm a hopeless romantic is a bit of a stretch, but some spontaneity should be in everyone's skill set, however minimal.
That's pretty much all the potential I have for talking about myself; well, to myself. So, just ask - whatever you like.
