What am I looking for? What I want is a woman who is genuinely kind, honest with her feelings, and able to communicate openly about her needs (or desires). I am at a point in my life where I don’t really have the time or effort to guess or read your mind, just tell me.
What I like: I really like to laugh and want someone with a good sense of humor. I like the outdoors and being active, I enjoy walking in the evening and on weekends, going out to great restaurants, music (both listening and going to live venues), wine tasting, going to friend’s house, and just hanging out and watching a good move at home with someone special.
What I don’t like: Shopping for more the 3 hours (that’s my limit without getting cranky), baby showers, color selection of anything that you are considering wearing, bad drivers, helping you find the perfect pair of red shoes (I have come to believe that there is no such of a thing).
I really don't have too much time for hobbies; my work schedule doesn’t really go with hobbies. In my free time I do like to try new restaurants, see movies, and travel to Seattle or out of town for weekends. Sometimes I just like to hang out with friends and have some good conversation.
Finally, I am not hung up on age, but you need to be emotionally mature.
What I would do on a first date? Well, meet somewhere comfortable for both of us, either for lunch, Dinner or coffee or at one of the local wineries after work. See where things go from there.
