I'm an outgoing, down to earth,and intelligent lady. I enjoy travel, movies, hiking, comedy shows, wine tasting, sporting events(SF fan!), festivals and much more. I'm just as comfortable dressed up at a business or social event as I am in jeans/sweats at a ballgame or on a hike. I'd like to meet someone with similar interests but also new ones to share. I value my friends and time with family as well as time spent with that someone special in my life. I was raised by both of my parents and learned what chivalry, respect and courting should be like when a man desires to be with you and I hold on to those values. I may be a bit old school when it comes to dating, so if this doesn't resonate with you, we probably won't make it far.
If I have caught your interest at all, feel free to send an email. I'm open to talking a bit then meeting sooner than later. I feel true chemistry is found in person, so I prefer to meet rather than be pennpals forever. I am looking to build a long term relationship with the right person, if you're looking for the same please say hello.
What I'm NOT looking for: An already married man, FWB or a hookup so if that's all you're after, please don't waste my time or yours.
Generally on a first date I like to make it fun and keep it fairly simple. Dinner, drinks, or coffee then if all is going well, go do something interactive such as shoot pool, play mini-golf, bowling or even a walk at the beach or a park. I think this gives each person a chance to cut loose and be themselves and at the same time have the opportuntiy to talk and get to know eachother.
