No matter what we say on these meet ups, the old way is best. You see someone, make eye contact, smile, talk and either hit it off or not.I'm young at heart. My best friends are all much younger. I like all kinds of music, rap/hip hop isn't music . I enjoy life, have a positive attitude. . I like to go for long drives, exploring new places,quiet, natural places. Love water, beaches, lakes and rivers, boating. Walks in nature, hiking, biking. I want a new best friend. Cooking with someone is better than cooking alone, kissing in the kitchen,(thought I'd throw that in to see if you were still reading) learning new things together .I love cats and dogs, antiques, old houses, my garden, books, learning. Good conversation and lots of humor are important.. Can laugh at myself... casual, honest and simple life is very appealing
I've lived in Europe and traveled extensively. Wouldn't mind more travel, especially Italy.
I like my own company, just not all the time. Helping others brings me happiness. Staying healthy is very important. If you don't have your health, you don't have anything.
..It would be nice to meet someone who doesn't play games, is open and honest with good intentions. Open communication is important to get to really know someone. It would be nice to have someone to go places and do interesting things with.that would be my new forever friend and lover.
I think meeting in a public space, perhaps in the day time, for a coffee. Somewhere quiet enough to have a real conversation to get acquainted. Share background and interests.
If agreeable, meet for a second date, we decide on together. Too far to travel, makes it difficult to grow a relationship. Greater Bay Area preferred. Tall and perhaps romantic would be a bonus.
