I am best described as "sometimes curous, sometimes content." I am a contradiction in terms and refuse to be labelled or put inside a box. (That's why "yes or no" and multiple choice answers frustrate me. I can always think of the exception!) I can be middle-of-the-road in many cases because I can all sides of a situation. In other words, I am a "negotiator." I am very "self-aware" because of what I have learned from every relationship I have been engaged in; therefore, I hold no grudges and remain on good terms with all my past loves. I am very adaptable when I want to be, but I am also are very independent person and do not do well with someone who is controlling...being very "self-controlled" myself. (Don't need two bosses!) I have a very liberal taste in music, books and movies. I love to read when I can find the time....an animal lover from early youth...enjoy being creative and always have several projects in the works...live close to the Smoky Mtns, so I have done a lot of hiking and enjoy the outdoors. Looking for someone to share my interests - and theirs - with, but not looking for a 24/7 relationship.
First date is definitelly spending the day together doing every-day things, just getting to know each other. I can sense very early whether I am attracted to someone. First attraction is the eyes...then the smile...the sound of their voice...and it doesn't hurt to look "in shape." I like to be active and make a serious effort in staying in shape. I would expect the same of anyone I become seriously involved with. No expectations...just play it by ear...see where it goes from there.
