Seeking a mature woman who likes to laugh and has similar or comparable interests.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Unlike some, I find first meetings exciting and usually fun and/or instructive. Willing to meet for a drink or coffee, or fly a kite and eat out of a picnic basket, or dinner or lunch in a white table cloth restaurant.
