As the headline says, I am looking for a long term relationship. I am single and have been since my sons mother and I seperated 4 years ago. I have a 6 year old son that lives with his mother. I do see him on most weekends. My friends are mostly in relationships and I have wanted to be in one for a while now but it just seems to be hard to get started when nobody wants to go out because they are already settled down with kids. I miss being in a relationship but dating and being turned down is no fun. When I was younger it was easier because everyone went out together then met their (maybe not perfect, but at least their) match. Now it is all about the Internet. I do have a job, a car, and my own house. I am shy to go up to a new person but if I get the interduction I have been told I am funny though I think of myself as a serious person. I am not perfect and do not expect perfection from the woman I date. Be yourself and I will be myself and if it works out great and if not then I hope to have made a friend along the way. If I do not sound like someone you would like to know better but know a friend that would be a good match then please, let her know.
For my first date it would be about getting to know you so it would have to be a lunch date. No loud places, it is about getting to know each other and talking is a good start. A nice quiet resturaunt is good. Maybe a movie afterwards. No expectations. If there was a connection we could go for a walk and talk some more. I believe a first date is all about getting to know each other. First impressions and all that good stuff.
