I am a single father of two children, (Living with their mother). Beyond that between my hours at work, and seeing my children, this seemed like the best way to get to know somebody without resorting to bar girls. This was no glamour shot, rest assured. It is an everyday pic and with a bad camera.. but who cares. That's me! I've been out of the game for some time but I'd like to find someone who is honest, likes to go out dancing, but doesn't go to the bar all the time. Liking kids and family values is very important, as is honesty. Physical beauty and a sense of humor is important also, but communication is what matters most. I am looking for a friend and maybe more, but just a friend is also ok. Trust comes with a little time and you can't have a relationship without it or friendship.
On a first date, usually coffee or getting a drink is the appropriate way to go. That way, if one or neither is interested, you can say thanks for the drink and move on. (Unless you've spent some time online needling each other out.) Otherwise, the second date would most likely be a movie or day at the beach followed up by an extravagant meal (I'm no expert chef, but I can cook pretty well-- without the use of JIF or Macaroni... hehe) I think it's important to visit one another and see how they live, as that can tell you almost anything you need to know.. so on the first or second date, at least a house call first would be something I would look forward to.
