I am new to this, but I do know that the bar and club scene does not interest me. They are fun occasionally, but not for getting to know someone. I have been divorced for 3 years after being married for 25. I have 2 grown children who I am very close to. A few months ago I made the decision to start a new life, got a new job with the Dept of the Navy, sold everything, moved here from Texas...and here I am. I love the area and love the people. I enjoy getting to know people, and have a passion for history. I am a voracious reader of nearly anything, and appreciate art of all genre. I do watch sports sometimes, but am more likely to go to the game, than watch it on TV. I enjoy all music, except for hard Rap. I am a little old fashioned...I believe in romance, opening doors, sending flowers, leaving small gifts in unexpected places, slow dancing (though I'm not very good at it), and sharing experiences with someone. I hope to meet someone who is happy and appreciates these things. One last thing...I stay well groomed, but I wear my hair fairly long. My career field allows it, or at least my reputation let's my seniors overlook it. Please do not mistake this for a druggie or looser, it is simply that I fall asleep in barber chairs, and dislike waking in strange places! If you are interested do not be afraid to say "Hi", because the chances are good that I am! In addition...Over the last few years I have done extensive volunteer work for Habitat for Humanities, Brian's House (a Dallas based home for children with disabilities), and The Bridge. I would like to meet someone who does not feel "put out" when I give my time, and possibly someone who is interested in something similar.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I would like a first date to be public, and quiet. A coffee house is a good idea. A time to get a feel for one another, before jumping into dinner. I want to take some time to know each other. Hate to break this to anyone, but I'm not a kid anymore. If at the end of a first date I'm not crawling all over you, it does not mean I'm not interested, only that I may want something more in my life than a one night stand.
