I'm fulfilled by my children and looking for someone to share that joy with me and the joy of yours. If you don't have an interest in exploring my character, I'd have no interest anyway. Attraction only goes so far, if you don't posess and intellect and a great heart, I'm not for you.
The first date should be as relaxed as possible. Coffee at Barnes and Noble, walk around together, see what each person is interested in. It's quiet and lets people actually have a conversation.
All of us need to be thankful for those who serve!
