Not sure what to do w/this. Being I'm looking platonically for now, this doesn't really apply in 'date' terms. I am open to dating casually. Just not looking for 'involvement' right now. Not looking for FWB's either. Rather, hanging out, doing things w/someone with similar likes. Easy going, just enjoying life. I'm tactile, & do enjoy mutual affection when attracted to someone. If, by chance, something more comes of it, then I'd just take it slow. I'm not into pushing for a relationship to happen. If it does, it does...naturally.
Would want to email a bit/feel someone out first, some conversation & then if we decide to meet, we do. After talking over coffee/something light, &/or meeting up for a beach or other outdoor walk, to see if we 'click'. Then...
A nice time would be a Museum or Art Gallery of interest to both of us. Doesn't have to be the MFA. We could save that for another day. ;) Fun: A Zoo, or Wildlife area, the Aquarium in Boston. Or something you suggest. I'm open.
Just so it's something where we get to know each other, share ideas, thoughts, interests. If it goes well, grab a bite somewhere. Nothing like a movie, where you can't talk until later. I want to know about you, get comfortable.
A casual dinner w/great food, is fine too.
A Pic-nic on the beach @ sunset w/light food, cheese, fruits, wine, can be romantic &/or fun, as can star gazing during a meteor shower at night. A good Whale Watch w/food after is always a great time too. The Right Whales are here in abundance this year. :) A very rare event. Must Do! Something fun & engaging for both.
If you think I'm one of those women who'd expect you to pay my way, I'm not. A date is different from friends getting together for a good time. Don't always have to be up to something, but just 'be there' for each other, as any good friend would be when needed/wanted. A good ear/confidant.
Open to wide age range, as long as we're compatable & enjoy sharing our time. It's 'friends' & I've found, by cutting someone off b/c of age, you could be missing out on someone worth having in your life. You can never have enough 'quality' people in your life. So, come on, take a chance. Nothing ventured... ;)
Thank you for taking the time to read all this. Good luck to you.
