I believe that like energies attract: I choose to be positive and caring. The journey is often more memorable than the destination. To be able to share life's journey with a like energy, is an attainable dream.
I have recently moved to Phoenix, and I’m now basically settled in. However, there are too many good movies leaving the theatres that I am missing because I’d rather not go alone … or worse yet be the third wheel with a couple. Admittedly I find it nice to have coffee or dinner after a movie and talk about it – better to do with one engaging person.
This is my first foray into on-line dating. My Brother thinks it’s crazy and dehumanizing. The whole notion that OUR first step in this process is based purely on physical appearance/attraction … not to mention it goes from there to a scheme of picking out options like ordering a car or design features on a custom piece of furniture. I see his point, but I’m putting my complete faith in the notion that we will get to meet people that we enjoy looking at over dinner table AND they are more likely to have similar interests and outlooks. I truly believe I won’t have success meeting as many good matches in a bar: it’s not where I hang out, nor do I care to meet anyone who spend a great deal of time in a bar. Don’t get me started on blind/arranged dates or the minefield of dating people from work.
So, I hope to meet someone I find attractive, fun, loving and engaging … initially only for lunch or dinner is all I expect. If mutually agreeable it would be great to embark on other planned or spontaneous activities. I travel quite a bit for work, so I clearly need candidate companionship that has a full life of their own and is not stressed by my being gone 3-5 days at a stretch. However, it is critical that they not be so independent that they don’t look forward toward our next time together.
Some final thoughts:
I am not a TV sports, workout, golf or single-hobby fanatic.
While I love to ski and ride motorcycles (tour vacations), and many of my pictures involve such activity/venue, I don’t do these things every weekend. I like and need variety and spontaneity.
Even though I travel for my work I still love to go places on vacation and I want to go so many places in the years to come.
I have a number of things on my ever growing bucket list. It would be great to meet someone I truly enjoy to add and check off items on this list with their company.
