Trying to imagine there is someone kind, intelligent, grounded, attractive, fun-loving, responsible, hard-working, adventurous, thoughtful, and financially stable out there to be my better half. I like to have fun: hanging out with family and good friends - going to the beach and swimming in the ocean, even in icy SF waters, traveling, skiing, hiking (both urban and out in the sticks,) camping, road trips, museums, concerts, that kind of thing. I am also happy to spend time on my own (especially if you like to watch sports other than baseball): I can read for hours, sometimes for days; spend time with my girlfriends, jog with the dog (I share her with my neighbor, the perfect arrangement.) I'm healthy, enjoy my work, and recognize I am blessed and fortunate. Me encantaria si hablaras español. Good luck with your search.
First date should be low pressure. Hope to feel both nervous and relaxed. Doesn't need to be a big production, but should feel like it took and was worth some effort. Or does that sound more like a second date? Also, mutual courtesy is important and mutual chemistry is highly anticipated.
