I like how she's able to carry herself like royalty in public, but change into sweats and one of my t-shirts at the house. I like trying new foods, but nothing TOO EXTRAVAGANT. I mean, come on, we gotta keep it recognizable. We'll eat somewhere expensive, but she's quick to suggest some place simple because she and I have "savings goals". Though I'll pull out my wallet, she'll offer to pay for it...AND MEAN IT. She's not the type of woman to offer to chip in just for looks and show. She knows we're in this TOGETHER, and just like she's trying to make it, I'm trying to make it, too.
She's got issues! No, I'm not saying I like a crazy woman. But, just like EVERY other human being, she's got issues and emotional baggage. The difference is how she handles it and if she's trying to work those issues out. In addition, to whom is she looking to help with those issues? I'm a Christian and that's all I've got to say about that.
She cooks! And, I mean SHE THROWS DOWN! But, though she cooks, she cooks HEALTHY foods. I'm trying to give her something she can look at even when we're 70...lol. I'm also trying to make it past 90. So, let's be healthy and live life. I'm a stocky dude with a good amount of muscle on his body. Yes, just like her, I have a little fat, too. But, that's leaving even as I write this. She doesn't look at me like I should be a model. However, she wants me in good physical condition because she wants a family in the future....but I AM trying to be her model...hahaha.... We can't be lazy and overweight while trying to run behind our kids. Yes, I want a family! If you're not taking care of your health and body, keep moving. I won't apologize for that.
She and I want to try new things; go new places; travel...stuff like that. But, we LOVE a quiet evening at home that can turn "fun". That's all I'm saying about that...
I'm not arguing with a woman! She'll win, anyway! But, she needs to understand that I'm not leaving. So, if she's mad, she better go into the next room and chill out, because we're working this out, RIGHT NOW. Too many relationships end because people don't talk. That's not happening here. So, get ready to open your mouth and talk to a man that WILL listen. I might not say much back, because I'm a guy and we process things internally.
Together, she and I are going to take over the world, and have a family that will continue the legacy.
1. Movies (can't live without 'em...I'm a screenwriter, for crying out loud...)
2. Food (great-tasting food is a gift from God...Be honest with yourself and tell me you don't enjoy the hell out of your favorite food. Seriously.)
3. Working out (wanna give her something she can look at)
READ THE ENTIRE THING SO YOU AREN'T CONFUSED: Now, see, the first date is crucial...and I mean the REAL FIRST DATE...not the first time we meet...the first time we meet, we'll meet as strangers and go "Dutch". From that meeting, we'll see if a FIRST DATE is in order. Now, please don't get the first meeting confused with the first date. The first meeting is us placing names, texts and voices with faces. The first date says we're interested, or I'm interested. THEY ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT. For instance, if a guy approached you at a bar and had a drink with you, would you call that the first date? Hell no! You'd say you met a guy at a bar. After you spoke for a bit, he would offer to take you out. THAT would be the first date. Understand? I clarify so extensively because I've gotten messages from women who haven't read/understood.
The first date depends on how the lady presents herself to me in the first meeting. I want to get to know her. So, don't be surprised if we go to a good restaurant and find ourselves in a good conversation over her favorite wine or drink. Why? Again, WE are the point of interest...not the location or how much the bill is.
I'm all about making sure she's comfortable. If she's not comfortable, then I'm not comfortable. How can a man be okay with the lady on his arm being out of sorts about something? So, wherever we go or whatever we do, if she's not feeling it, there will be an immediate change of plans. The caveat to this is whether or not she's into trying new things. If she's not feeling it even before we walk into wherever we're going for whatever we're going to do simply because she's never experienced it, I'm going to need her to open er mind...just as I would do for her. Don't worry, girl. I got you. I ain't gonna let anything happen to you. Relax. You're with me...lol
So, that first date depends on what we're both interested in. That being said, I wanna know your interests. This first date almost really depends on you.
