I am an active, self motivated, go getter. I find that some men confuse the package with the contents. I'm smart, creative, self-employed and think outside of the box. I am not a serial dater, and in fact, my ultimate goal is to find a man to be a life partner, whom I can walk with hand and hand through life with. I am a very loyal, supportive and caring woman. I love children, and now that my children are grown and away on their own, miss the day to day of being a mom. I enjoy working out, playing tennis and being in the outdoors. I love, love watching and attending sports events, and can hold my own when discussing sports with most men, which is very fun. I'm not your typical run of the mill woman, I am progressive in the sense that I work for myself in a male dominated field, am willing to take risks, yet in many ways am very traditional, and am very family orientated.
I think a first date is really an opportunity to meet someone in person, rather than off a picture(s) or profile, and determine if you have an attraction and chemistry, and if you can easily talk with that person. Communication is key. The real test is if you make it to a second date! My ideal date would be to meet in a relaxed location, with the least amount of pressure. I would likely let the man make suggestions.
