So I haven't been on here for several years, but recently relocated and figured this would be a good way to meet someone. After this first week back, I realize that I have to make something very clear. Gentlemen: I am not interested in a texting buddy or pen pal. If your conversation is solely on the surface (how's your day; you're beautiful; how are you) then we are not a good match. After a few exchanges on here you should know whether you want to exchange numbers (to CALL me) or to meet me in person. Remember the days when you met someone in public, told them your name, got their phone number, called them to set up a first meet/date, then at that first meet/date decided if you wished to pursue? Well, I'm still a lady looking for that. No need to read further if that takes you out of your comfort zone.
I love traveling (though I don't do it often enough), having a good time with drama-free people, volunteering, and going to museums. I also write in my spare time. Anything that makes me laugh is a favorite. I'm not a sports fanatic, but I like to watch several sports--especially basketball. I want the people in my life to reach their goals and I'm known to be very encouraging and helpful.
First dates can be awkward so I like them to be as relaxed as possible in order for both of us to feel comfortable. A first date should be fun like bowling, playing pool, or even going to an amusement park. Overall, I LOVE for a man to take control and plan it--even if it's simple like a walk around the park or meeting at the gym.
