I am looking for a man who is somewhat liberal and who can appreciate a down-to-earth woman who is into a healthy lifestyle. I have the most respect for a man who has patience and self-control yet will not try to control me! As far as physical attributes, I prefer the clean cut man who is physically fit (more or less). Spiritually he must love nature and be flexible toward other views (religions, lifestyles & cultures). It is important, for me, to find a man who is courteous, successful in his area of expertise and willing to go through the dating process one step at a time. Do not be discouraged by my level of education - it's all paid for, but not needed for my current career!
Something simple like going to a movie and talking. It could be an encounter at Barnes and Noble or some other neutral type of place. I am flexible about this and would consider any reasonable suggestion, but prefer to keep it simple when meeting for the first time.
