I'm a transplant from Boulder, Colorado although I've lived in the Bay Area for almost twenty years now. I live in San Anselmo (Marin County) but I work in the South Bay. It's a long commute, but I don't work a 40-hour week so, it's do-able. I love to laugh and I do it often. I love to travel. I love exploring around the Bay Area and beyond. I am a very active person so I'm always up for something fun. I love being outdoors. I'm easy-going. I enjoy spending time with my family, who live close-by. I have a good heart and like to give. I'm independent. I like sharing my time with people I really care about. I can take a joke even if it's at my expense (-: I like to talk and listen, if it's interesting conversation. I am fine not talking or listening--I'm not afraid of silence. I can be introspective. I'm also outgoing. I am very empathetic to others' plights and pride myself on keeping an open mind. I enjoy a challenge and thrive on the execution of a plan. I also love spontaneity and am a romantic at heart...
For my date to feel right for me he would be: kind, considerate, happy, funny, sarcastic, interesting, interested, easy to laugh, secure, charming, comfortable, attractive, tall, warm, open, respectful, polite to the wait staff, sincere, masculine, easy to talk to and easy to please...Hmmm, sounds like a lot when it's listed out like this. What the hell, let's just start with chemistry first! The rest is negotiable (-:
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Meeting at a coffee house or local bar is good. Have a cup or a drink and introduce ourselves. If we hit it off=easy conversation and there is that spark of chemistry, we take a walk around the neighborhood and find a place to eat where we can continue to get to know each other. Dessert maybe?
