I am interested in dating to find a long term relationship. I am *not* interested in casual sex. I am looking for someone who is honest, and can communicate well.I want someone who can take care of himself and doesn't need a mommy figure.
I have been told I am subtle as a sledgehammer, but at least you will know where you stand with me. I am an independent woman who does not *need* a man to take care of me, but would like someone to share things with.
I'm looking to settle down and build a life. I work hard and I play hard. I am willing to try lots of things, but jumping out of a perfectly good airplane is beyond me. I can be a kid at heart sometimes, but I also know when to be the grown up. I'm good with the spontaneity, but the little kid in me might bug you every 5 minutes to tell me the surprise. I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl most of the time when we're just knocking around, but I do enjoy getting cleaned up and looking nice.
I enjoy reading, boating, motorcycles, movies, dancing, karaoke, and many other things. My work has taken me all over the country, so I have experienced different cities, different cultures, different attitudes. I am open minded about things for the most part. Family and friends are priorities in my life, and I'm very protective of them. Most importantly, I want to have fun!
I feel a first date should be something that enables us to talk and get to know each other. Meeting for coffee or food, meeting in a park or other outdoor venue. I don't think things like the movies makes for a good first date because it's hard to interact.
