I'm nearly 50 but still feel young in my mind. I love life and live it to the fullest as much as possible. Have teenage children and going through a divorce which impact my capabilities to some extent right now, hopefully not much longer. My wants & needs are simple, my expectations are realistic and my feet are planted firmly on the ground. My mind is open & understanding of lifes ways & woes. I am aware that I am in a vulnerable state right now and I will keep that in mind when responding to replies. You have nothing to fear here, you will be treated with dignity and respect.
I think the ideal situation here would be a location or activity that both of us are familar and comfortable with. An atmosphere that would relax and tend to let us be ourselves. Movies are always good, I love music and dancing, food usually ends up in there somewhere (which is always a good thing). That should set the stage for good conversation, company relaxed emmotions. In the event the chemistry isn't there you're not afraid to communicate that to your partner. I guess what I would really like to capture is that magic when you meet someone at a party or some other venue and things just really click and your heart is beating, the adrenaline is rushing and it doesn't have to be a black tie affair to have that happen. (But I don't mind wearing a tux) First dates should be special, but they shouldn't be a lot of work!
