As I'm sitting in my window seat in the airplane, the young couple takes the seats next to me. The guy is poking his girl while she's trying to work on her puzzle. He's roughly positioning his pillow on her shoulder and lap trying to sleep. Really!?!? That is not me! Try this one. My co worker and I are business traveling. My co worker is telling me that while she's away, her husband is not doing the laundry, not cleaning and complaining about being bored. Really?!?! To make matters worse, he's waiting for her to come home so she can cook him dinner. "Guys" are slime. I'm not a typical "guy."
I'm still looking for that special someone. I have women friends, but have never been fortunate enough to find the right one. I've had plenty of those intelligent, goofy, sensitive, late night conversations. I've been spotted in the audience at theaters, even musicals. I'm very good at cleaning but my cooking skills are questionable. I enjoy grilling outside but I'm not good in the kitchen. I know how to send flowers. I never forget birthdays and other important dates. My friends tell me that for a first impression I come across as very quiet, but once I get to know you, the witty repartee doesn't stop. I'm definitely a mix of being the mature, professional adult and college student/big kid. The ability to have a conversation is very important, especially during a summer, evening stroll. Similar interests (like the ones I listed) are important too. It doesn't have to be everything, but a few will help and a willingness to try something new. Sincerity is a criteria and the ability to be "silly" is also very important.
I really enjoy the traditional "dinner and a movie". Conversations that last until midnight. How about a summer stroll? I'll hit the dance floor with you. And you gain bonus points if you like going to hockey games.
I'm not much of a bar person. I do like dining out. I like both the chain and non chain restaurants. Disney and Hawaii are my favorite travel destinations. I've business traveled quite a bit, so I've been to most travel destinations in the US
