I generally don't go for the dinner & a movie thing as a good first date. My preference? A trip to a great zoo or museum or a nite out on the town listening to some good, live music. I must admit that I'm looking for a big (not obese), burly Scotsman who is a bit old-fashioned as well. Honor & integrity is a must - basically, I want to be treated in the way you want me to treat you. My "ideal" man is masculine (not macho), hard-working (but not obsessive), has a good sense of humor (but not immature) & likes animals (I have 1 dog). I have recent photos available & expect any man who responds to have at least 1 to share with me. Just a new hair style recently so I hope to add new photos very soon (by Jan 2005). When I picked "other relationship", I meant that I'm open to a long-term, e-mail or travel companion/activity partner relationship. Ultimately, I would like to settle down with the man I'm compatible with & am in love with. Enough about me, what about you? Are you courageous enough to respond to my ad?
