I'd like a little bit of everything in a dating relationship - time spent out listening to music and socializing with friends, a romantic dinner for two, or going for hikes and riding bikes. I want to be with someone who enjoys art and day trips to the city. I create my own art and am always chasing inspiration. I'm a blue jean girl not afraid to get dirty, but still love to clean up and put on a dress to party. I will be reliable and a straight-shooter, but occasionally have a five minute tardiness problem. When we get to know each other you'll know where you stand, which means I'll prioritize a relationship, but it will be well balanced to include or accomodate my commitments to work, friends & family.
A first date should be real. Don't ever ask me to do something you won't actually enjoy just because you think it's what a woman wants. I like surprises and creativity. I like to see that a man can come up with unique or special ideas for a date with out being led. My least favorite answer when asking someone what they would like to do is, "whatever you'd like..." The combination of an activity and a meal is always a nice way to get to know someone. A lovely cafe after a hike? A picnic lunch after a bike ride? I'm open to it all!
