I'm a goal oriented, family first, young woman with a great sense of humor and I career I absolutely adore. I'm looking for a friendship that could develop into a romantic and long-lasting relationship built on a foundation of trust, respect, honesty and committment. Friendships are a type of relationship and yes, even friendships, require work and effort to make it work, so look before you leap. I apologize for not being more forthcoming about myself. This is my second time on POF so I'm doing things a little differently this time around. Hope you've enjoyed what you read and I look forward to your response. :>)
Not to sound like a disclaimer but I simply must get a few things off my chest:
FIRST: Please do not ask to meet up or for my number right off the bat. I don't find it attractive or a turn-on when guys are too forward from the onset, with women they know nothing about. Let's face it, as a woman I have to make safe choices about who and where I meet up with a guy. If I manage to pique your interest and you pique my interest we will take it from there, exchange numbers, text, talk on the phone or email, but not until then.
SECOND: If at some point you lose interest regardless of how we are communicating, please keep it real and bow out gracefully and like a man. The disappearing act is old and quite frankly rude. I'm a big girl, so a simple Adieu or farewell its been nice getting to know will suffice.
Dinner is always a good idea for a first date. I have to feel comfortable with the person in a public setting before considering a more quiet, intimate setting. Also, we should be speaking frequently before our first date. I'm not too keen on blind dates.
