I am a 38 year old female looking for a man who is honest, fun-loving, humorous,and knows who he is. I am a very independent, intelligent, strong minded person who enjoys hanging out with my friends, playing practical jokes, cooking a meal for my friends and family or experimenting with a new recipe, watching a football game in person or on television. I love go on vacations and explore new places I have never been. I love the outdoors. I can be somewhat of a tomboy, and am a ferocious competitor. I like to watch and play most sports, except for tennis ( I really suck at tennis). I would like to find someone who complements my personality and I compliment his. I am not someone who has to be velcroed to your side at all times. I like my space and hope that you would like yours, yet enjoy our time together. I am ferociously loyal to my family and friends, and am very dedicated to my job as a special education teacher. I have a very eclectic music and movie collection. I range from Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Elvis Costello, to Plain White T's, and movies from Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Disney movies, The Princess Bride to Black Hawk Down. I love to go explore down town Chicago, go shopping, or I can just curl up read a book or watch a movie.
If you are someone who needs to know at all times my whereabouts, have a problem with person's with disabilities, are a loner, control freak, hate animals and children, alcholic, drug addict, married, "just" seperated, PLEASE LOOK ELSEWHERE!!!!!!!!
For a first date, I think there are a few options...
First option, Going to a local sports bar, have some snacks, drinks, play some pool and get to know each other. If all goes well continue on to dinner, movie, a walk around town, or just hang out continuing to the great on going conversation or banter.
Second option, Go see a local band, chat, get to know each other and see where the evening goes.
Third option, meet, chat, see how we connect, meet up with some mutual friends.
