Thanks for reading and responding, Dick!

I see where what you are looking for might be a bit tricky, but I still advocate for being honest.

I happen to know a woman here in Austin that is looking EXACTLY for what you have described, so they are out there but there aren’t as many of them.

The online dating world is continually shifting. I sincerely believe you might find someone on Bumble that would fit your criteria. (At least the Austin Bumble experience — there are people out there who seem open to what you are describing. It would take patience, but I think it would not be a wasted effort. I’m also aware that you have no intention of getting back online, so I’m just mentioning it rather than suggesting it.)

Perhaps a Meet-Ups type option is a more natural fit, if you really are looking for someone to have a beer with. It sounds like you are off the online dating world entirely, but maybe a different online mechanism might be viable.

Best wishes to you!
