I have just recently come out of a 6 plus year relationship and am a bit gun shy to jump back into the dating scene. It seems that once you have gotten comfortable with someone you forget just how to go about meeting someone new and that is where I am at. I love sports, playing and watching, and I think this helps me stay young. Or in my mind I think it does. lol I've been at the same career for 27 years and honestly I am glad to see the light at the end of the tunnel as it has taken a toll. I'm somewhat reserved, but I open up fairly quickly once I am comfortable.
At this point, a first date would be about anyplace we could talk and get to know more about each other. This can be through both talking and just seeing how the other person is through observation. I like quiet, small places without a lot of distractions but those are hard to find it seems.
