I originally thought the "online dating" concept was going to be a fairly simple process. Know what you want, realistically of course, find someone who you would be compatible with, and there you go, simple. Wow I was wrong. I have learned when you give some people choices, they can't seem to make a choice. They keep looking until they find their prince charming, who is more attractive then they would ever find in real life and together they stroll along the beach at sunset, and live happily ever after. Yikes!!
The things that bring me joy are the simplest of things. These things are kind, intelligent people, good conversation, fall and spring, the smell of pumpkin pie in the oven, my feet in the water at Sunset Beach, the curves of a beautiful woman, music that makes me feel, long drives with no destination, standing in my backyard wearing a tee shirt, jeans and flip flops just because I can, and my bed after a long day.
I would like to meet an imperfect, funny, kind, intelligent, strong woman who can say no when she doesn’t like something, but can find the balance between tact and bluntness.
I understand like many that a first date should be set up in a way to better understand and get to know the other person. Along with getting to know each other, the date should be fun. But, and this is a big but, the first time you meet someone you met on a dating website, it should be about the realities of safety and the TRUTH. That being said, A quick meeting at a coffee shop, as cliche as that may be, is the only way I will meet someone for the first time.
