I'm comfortable and confident with where I'm at, however it would be nice to find someone cool to hang out with once in awhile. If we meet each other & things click, I'd be open to a relationship.
I'm not your typical girl...I don't like clingy guys, I don't need to know where you're at, what you're doing, or who you're with 24/7, I like to think there is a mutual trust so there's no need to feel "obligated to check in". If anything feels forced, it's not going to work. I like wine, beer & sports, I'm not into drama or obsessive/jealous behavior. Trust is a big deal...if there isn't any, then what's the point? Which factors into the "clingy" stuff. I'm not materialistic & I don't think money can buy happiness. I own my home, I have a good career, & I think family & friends are very important. I like good conversation, so someone who is somewhat educated & has intellect would be great. There IS a difference between confidence and c*ckiness. I have 2 kids who are my world. I am comfortable in almost any setting - like jeans/sweatshirt at a game or dressing up to the 9s for a fancy occasion. I work hard and don't have a lot of "spare" time, so I am pretty picky about choosing how to spend my off time. I consider myself to be pretty diverse in my interests, I like a ball game or a concert at orchestra hall. I enjoy playing poker & bingo, singing karaoke, and I don't mind just chilling at home watching a movie or game with good company. I'm a very happy & positive person, so don't be a crabby pants. :)
First date should be kept simple as you usually know within the first few minutes of meeting someone if the chemistry exists. If it doesn't, why drag it on? If it does, let's get to know each other. The first date is always going to be awkward & you probably won't remember half of the conversation, either due to nerves or drinking to calm the nerves. I think the first date should really just be a meeting to see if there is an attraction. I also like to text/talk a few times before an actual date is set up.
