I'm a welll-read, well-travelled "Army brat" who has recently relocated to the States from Ireland where I lived and worked for the past nine years. I have a great sense of humour, a positive attitude and love meeting people in general. I have spent alot of time in the past sailing and would love to pursue that again. I love the outdoors, hiking, biking, etc. Health and fitness are very important. I also enjoy a broad mix of music, except if I cannot understand the lyrics! I must admit that the 'online' thing is completely new to me but has been recommended as a way to meet the right person. I am looking for a best friend/soulmate to share life with, laugh and play with! I am always open to new thoughts, ideas and information. I've always loved a challenge and am a 'show me' person rather than a 'tell me' one! I'm pretty game for anything new and always ready for a bit of adventure.
I think a first 'meeting' would be a better option. That gives one the opportunity to get to know someone better and usually indicates if there is a real 'fit'. Otherwise, it would really be a 'blind' date!! A real first date would be much more romantic after getting to know who you are really going out with.
