No ex-husband, no kids, and no roommate equals no drama. =)
I'm energetic, fun, down-to-earth, and a little sophisticated but not snobby. I like to go out for drinks at places like Temple Bar and Fireside, but i don't like dive bars. I love to laugh and be social. I love comedy shows at the Upfront Theater (I volunteer there), going out dancing, live music, wine tasting, hiking, reading, working out (4-5 days a week to help keep in shape), bike riding, and going out for coffee. At the gym I take cycle, weight lifting, and Zumba classes regularly. I also occasionally take a yoga and kettle-bell class. In addition to going out, I enjoy a night in at home with a cup of tea while reading my book or cuddling on the couch with a good movie. I love wine tasting, but I'm also interested in doing a beer tasting since I'm not too familiar with beer yet.
I know how to treat a man well. I treat my men the way I would like to be treated. I love to have a guy over for a home cooked meal, a movie with popcorn and a mini-massage. I also like to show some affection in public (hand holding or arms around the waist).
I don't want to say too much more. Gotta leave some things open for conversation topics. =)
I'm looking for someone who's got a sense of energy about them when having a conversation. Since I love to laugh, I'd like to meet a man who's got a great sense of humor. I like to keep things interesting. I like variety when it comes to dates and I'm looking for a man who can give me that.
Since I'm a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, being with someone who's fit and leads a healthy lifestyle is important to me.
Coffee dates are good, but I've done them a lot. How about a drink at The Temple Bar followed by a show at the upfront theater? I'm not that big on dinner dates for the first date as they seem a little too formal, but I'm not opposed to them. The Fireside is also a nice place for a first date. Wine by the fireplace and some card games. Costs about the same as a coffee. Coffee while walking around downtown talking is nice too, in good weather. Gotta take advantage of the good weather while we have it, I say.
