I'm a 40 year old teacher in Corona. I've been teaching for 17 years now and coaching at a local high school cross country and track for 9 years. I love what I do. I get to help people reach their potential for a living. I do my best to make the world a little better. It's challenging, and very rewarding. I love to run, and do any kind of outdoor activity, from a round of golf, to a game of tennis, to a walk around the neighborhood or on the beach, or a hike up the mountain, a bike ride, you name it. I love learning new things, experiencing new cultures, and visiting new places. I grew up in New York, in a big family, and I love a great conversation. I've spent the last few years focused on trying to be the best professional I can be and I would like to find someone to share my life and experiences with. I am definitely an outgoing, goal oriented person, and I am looking for someone to share my experiences, and life with. I hope we can share some good times and hopefully build a wonderful relationship together.
You should NOT respond to this if you:
* Take over an hour to get ready. ( I appreciate good looks but I'd prefer to spend time together too. )
* Say you're not into games but you really want the game to be played. (Go to any bar. It's being played all the time)
* Are insecure (You both chose each other. Show some trust. If trust doesn't exist end it.)
* Don't want kids. I love kids and want a family. I don't want that on the first date but it's got to ex something you want and see in the somewhat near future.
* Are racist, sexist, antisemetic (I'm not into judging anyone.)
* Don't like talking. I am a talker (as if this novel hasn't tipped you off so far)
A first date is a chance to talk, get a bite to eat or a drink together, and see if you enjoy each other's personalities. If that goes well, then you can pursue it with another date. I understand that you never get a second chance to make a first impression, but I tend to think the first date is a little over-hyped, and over-rated. If someone thinks they'll know enough after one meeting with me to "know" me they're wrong. People are like onions (Not that they stink); they have lots of layers. As more and more of you is revealed you get a better picture of what the whole person is like. Dating is the process of getting to know each other and enjoy the experiences together.
I have no cookie cutter first date. As we talk or exchange emails we'll get to better know each other's likes and as we do we can set up a meeting that is mutually fun. For me to explain exactly what the first date will look like is a bit presumptuous of me. I guess though that we could meet up somewhere and share a drink and bite together and see how it goes. I hope you've enjoyed learning a little about me, and I hope to hear from you soon.
