“Armpit hair. Also, using recreational drugs is a big no-no.” – Tom

“Bad teeth and ugly shoes.” – Jessica

    I am 71 yrs old and do not look my age 5 ft 3 and 124# some college, have manners and although I can be found mostly in casual attire I can definitely dress up, no problem. I am clean, not a smoker or toker of any kind, can not tolerate pets and rarely drink. I take pride in my appearance do not go around with hairy armpits or unshaven legs and expect my guy to be clean shaven, weight appropriate and pass my deal breakers which are mentioned in my second sentence.

    I am on several other dating sites but the deal breakers I specify just do not seem to present many options. Whats a girl to do??
