A little about me...
Apologies for the text wall, but I got tired of answering the same questions. If you're looking for cutesy-poo clichés, you should move on. Don't let my serious picture fool you. I'm actually more pleasant than I look, and I like to make people laugh. I just don't like being photographed. I've been an LPN for 38 years and have had the same job for the last 14. I own my house (well, the bank and I do), I can support myself, I'm not a freeloader, and frankly, what you make is of little interest to me. That doesn't mean I plan on supporting anyone. Been there and done that.
I have several hobbies. I was an art major in college before going to nursing school. I still paint on occasion. I am a trained studio photographer. Building models is my main hobby (WW II vehicles, mostly), and I used to compete in shows (I won, too).
I've been in NH for 12 years. I was born and raised in Ohio, near Cleveland.
Politically, I'm a left-leaning moderate, but, in truth, I don't play well with many conservatives. So, if you've been voting for Republicans since 1980, we won't get along. Socially, I'm a progressive and a humanist.
I'm not perfect, and don't claim to be. If you're looking for someone without faults or foibles, I suggest a pet rock.
About the one I'm looking for...
Not sure about commitments yet, but we'll see what happens. It would be nice to have a lot of common interests but I am open to new things, too. I'm not looking to be taken care of, I can do that myself, thanks. Care should be mutual. I'm looking for someone to talk with, share laughs, and maybe get into a spirited discussion from time to time. Someone who understands we all need "alone time." Togetherness is great, but sometimes solitude is better. I need time for my hobby; it's not a group activity. It's my therapy.
My atheism isn't going to change, so please don't preach. I wouldn't dream of turning someone away from their beliefs, and I expect others to respect mine. True morality rarely comes from religion alone.
I rarely drink alcohol of any kind, and I have no interest in daily drinkers. Alcoholism was a problem on both sides of my family. BTW, if you "just" drink a lot of beer, you're still a heavy drinker. Recreational drug users can move on, too.
Large, visible tattoos are a turn-off. Discreet ink is OK. Same goes for pieces of metal anywhere but your earlobes.
Relocation is an option for me, within limits.
Please: Be divorced or single. "Legally Separated" means "Still Married," and that's too complicated.
I'd just like to add...
I'm a pretty good cook, and grill all year. I'm not big into fast food, though I like Subway
I like a lot of different music, but C+W makes my ears bleed, and rap isn't even music. I like animals, but prefer cats. Dogs are OK, too. I've never had children, and I don't relate well to younger children.
And please, put up a RECENT picture. I'm really not interested in what you looked like 20 years ago. I think that's fair.
I don't hunt or fish, and I'm not interested in learning. As long as I can get food from a supermarket, I see no reason to kill it myself. I won't get into a debate about it. If it's something you enjoy, that's fine, just don't insist I come along. That goes for playing with guns, too.
I don't sleep in tents. My idea of "roughing it" is staying in a hotel that doesn't have HBO. And I won't help anyone rape the environment on an ATV, snow machine, or any other internal-combustion toys. Want to enjoy nature? Let's take a walk.
I also don't do motorcycles. If you must ride one, please wear a helmet.
