In short: I'm here because I do afternoon to evening shift hours and I can't get out much during the same times as most other people.
That said, I'm looking for someone to spend my off-time with. I'm looking for the end-game, the last call, as they say. I'm not so good at describing myself, but I'll give it a shot.
I'm a bit of a joker and I love both receiving and giving a good laugh. I enjoy movies, books, spending time outside with nice weather (and sometimes weather that isn't so nice), working on the car or attending car-related events, occasionally playing vidya games (though you don't have to worry; I'm not one of those spend all day playing Call of Duty or Madden guys) and I'm looking for someone who doesn't mind all that, and might even enjoy it herself.
I'm looking for someone who might want to relax and watch shows or Netflix with me at the end of a long day, or go to the movies with, or some other outing that I'm sure we could come up with. I'd very much like to find someone who can engage me in an intellectual conversation about something besides celebrity gossip, and doesn't mind listening to my day as much as I want to hear about hers. I'm a bit Southern in that I still believe in holding open the doors and taking care of a woman (what can I say, momma raised a gentleman :p ), though I also respect your right to your own individuality and won't coddle, cramp or crowd you.
I don't always attend church the way I should, but I do have a strict code of morals that dictate the way I behave and how I act, and my faith and relationship with God is very important to me. I don't need you to believe the same things that I do, as long as you respect what I choose to believe in.
What I'm NOT looking for:
I'm not looking for drama, and I'm not looking for someone who needs to constantly get drunk to enjoy her life or those in it. I'm looking for someone who is ready to get into a serious relationship.
Final thought: I will not respond to single sentence or text-speak messages consisting of your attempts at being flirty and/or sexual. I'm not here for that. If the best you can do is "hy baby, hw u doin, ur sexy", I will be moving right along.
A first date tends to form itself around the individual. What you like may not be what the next person likes. However, I realize that's really no answer at all so I'll follow-up with this: There will probably be a meal involved if we're hungry. Nothing cheap or ridiculous like McDonald's. I can't believe some people get away with trying to take a date there.
No, some place nice, with an atmosphere and an aura where we can chat and get to know each other. Maybe we'll follow up to a karaoke bar (yes, I like to sing). Maybe a stroll through a park or a greenway. Maybe we'll just sit and chat and see how the night goes. It should be naturally fluid, right? There must be chemistry, or otherwise you're just sitting and talking to a stranger over a meal and wishing the night were through.
