Well yikes, I just moved to Naperville for work! Leaving friends, family, my dog (hopefully only for a short time), the ocean, hills, lots of outdoor activities and the nice weather of California behind, I'm ready yet apprehensive as i venture into such a big change. . . Would i like to find a man while I'm here? Absolutely! Do I have this romantic idea of a tall manly farmer type? Yeah! but since I'll know not a single soul, friends first is key! I am a tall girl so I'm looking for a tall, strong man that will make me feel like a girl. Much to the disappointment of my mother, I'm not a girly girl. I'm not into the latest fashion trends and I don't tote around expensive purses. I much prefer a relaxing evening at home, or biking to the local bars as opposed to the crazy hyped up life of the trendy city club scene. Hopefully you are confident without having to say so, uncomplicated and fun. I can be very sarcastic and I love to laugh. You MUST love dogs. Better yet you own a dog! And hopefully you like body art. I don't have a lot but I do have some and will likely add to my collection one day. As for dating onine, I haven't had much luck finding what I'm looking for (granted that was in a different city in a different state which pretty soon will feel like a world away). . . so my new goal is to meet interesting people to have new experiences with. If it turns into something more, great, if it doesn't that's fine too!
On a side note, I'm not a huge fan of guys who think their profile picture needs to include a close up shot of their 6 or 8 packs, nor do I want to jump on the "I'm serious and don't smile train". I'm ultimately looking for something serious so if you're on here to casually date or fool around, I'm sure you'll find it, but it wont be with me. Was that too harsh??
I'm not a big fan of fancy dinner dates, and don't even ask me to name the many different flavors in a glass of red wine. Neither am I convinced that the guy should always pay. Our 1st date would be during daylight hours and outside. A hike, a walk in the rain, something where we can run around and get to know each other. Or there's always that whole meeting for coffee thing. . . sometimes thats a good way to decided if we like each other before embarking on an adventure together!
