Never know how to answer this whole hobbie/goals question.. I don't have any one thing I'm crazy about doing. I tried rafting & it was a blast, even though I got the worst sunburn I've ever had. Rollerskating sounds fun but in the end, it's up to my ankles as to whether or not I can do it ;)... I kinda liked bicycling when I was a kid, willing to try it again but would have to start slow. Ok, wait.. I love going for strolls in nature, playing air hockey or shuffleboard & I'm a stock car racing fan so I love going to the races (even at the little tracks like in Roseville) & watching the races on TV. I like going to 2nd Saturday downtown, the movies (popcorn a must) & playing Guitar Hero (specifically the Band Hero version: it has a better variety of genre's).
I'm on disability for back & neck injuries, but am self-supporting & live a full, happy life. I don't have alot of extra.. but I'm happy with what I have. I have one child, 20 years old & a beautiful grandson.
I'm very old fashioned, and very much believe in 'courting.' I am a lady & I expect to be treated like one. I'm a bit shy so I prefer to be with someone who's a little more outgoing than me. I prefer someone 34-44, 5'10"+, height/weight proportionate, a few extra pounds ok. I don't drink, but I don't mind if you do on occasion. I'm not interested in anyone who drinks daily, does drugs, hunts or makes comments with a sexual connotation to someone they're not in a relationship with. I don't mind if you smoke, as long as you don't do it in any enclosed spaces with me around.
A first date should be simple, it's a matter of meeting one another, finding out if there's any spark & whether or not I feel safe around you. I don't think first dates should be terribly long, something simple like a movie (I know some girls think a movie makes a terrible 1st date, but I'm not one of those, I think it's a great way to see if I can be comfortable around you), maybe coffee after. Or maybe just coffee (big fan of 1/2 caff Skinny Vanilla Latte's).
Life is serious enough as it is, I wanna meet someone who can make me laugh. If I don't laugh at least a few times, it was not a good date.
