I have had the fortunate luck of meeting/dating a number of wonderful men.
Many of which I am still friends with and I have learned a great deal from them.
I am regarded as someone who is easy to talk to, trustworthy, knows how to be a supportive person and desires to make this world a little bit better.
I truly believe a relationship benefits from that each person having their own personal time.
I am looking for a man that has a similar view.
The kind of men that I am usually instantly attracted to are very intelligent, a bit of an introvert, extremely observant of their surroundings, and sensitive to others needs/desires.
I know myself very well and crave to know myself even better and I want my man to as well - I believe it is only through knowing yourself extremely well that you can successfully identifiy a good life partner.
On a first date I enjoy being able to talk to my date.
The conversation does not necessarily need to be serious but I do enjoy conversation that allow us to get to know one another better.
This is easy enough done over dinner but taking a walk or meeting for drinks/coffee.
Also, I believe a first date does not need to be anxiety producing - it is simply two people meeting one another and if nothing clicks no problem...at the very least I usually believe I have been lucky to meet another nice guy.
If there is a connection and attraction that is great and we just take it from there.
