What ever happened to the days of getting to know each other while having fun. Now a days dates are interviews held at coffee shops. "Just ask you anything", not gonna happen. I don't like being interviewed so I'm not gonna interview you, give me some kind of base to start a conversation with. I very much want a relationship but not one that's forced, I'm learning to accept what life brings me and still be happy even if that means I don't get the relationship I want. I'm not trying to use someone for a free meal or anything else free. I don't deny myself fun because I am waiting on a man to take me out and pay for it, that's hilarious. I know people become invested. If I'm not interested but do enjoy your friendship I would not allow you to spend a lot of money on me.
Some things about me: my favorite color is purple, this is the color of passionate people, and I am indeed passionate. I like to work out. I like to ride my motorcycle. I have two sons, one just joined the Army (like his mother) and one that still lives with me. I don't believe that owning more things will ever make anyone happy. I'm addicted to chocolate, lol. My favorite music is R&B and hip hop, but I also like rap, rock and pop music. I think bald is sexy and can't understand why everyone doesn't. I love the outdoors, hiking, biking (not mountain), kayaking, laying on the beach and I want to try kite surfing (I think it's called) and paddle boarding. I like to travel and can't wait to go to New Zealand and Iceland. I love mountains and Redwood forests. I love watching the sunrise and set and always try to actually pay attention (it's different everyday), that's what will make you happy, appreciating the simple, beautiful things in life where everyone else sees nothing.
I don't think that ignoring messages on plenty of fish is rude, I don't need you to tell me you are not interested, that's what ignoring me tells me, I'm smart like that to figure it out. I also don't think you should ask me to make a decision after reading just your profile and one message but if I wanted to give everyone a chance it could take a while, and maybe I will never have the time, but at least I didn't close the door by telling you I'm not interested.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'm open to most ideas just not a movie, that's a bad first date. Something that allows us to talk.
