I am looking to meet a like-minded, stable guy to hang out with, go to dinner, see a movie, and if he's into photography, go shooting and talk shop with. Someone with the travel bug and free time to go on weekend getaways too would be cool. And if he has a motorcycle, even better. He has to feel comfortable with an independent woman, but also know how to be a gentleman. Manners and respect are important to me. Chivalry earns lots of points in my book. If you think anger = justification for disrespect and name-calling, then we wouldn't be a match. A man who likes romance is a turn-on. Impromptu flowers, in person or sent to work, a card, a hidden note somewhere. I eat that stuff up.
While I am not necessarily seeking a soul mate at this time, I'm not opposed to it. For now, I'd like to Find a steady companion and friend with similar interests with whom to spend time, go on dates, have conversations. If he ends up being "the one," I'm all for it. I don't want to rush anything, but don't want to really just date around for the sake of dating, if that makes sense.
And by the way, I'm still a bit of a traditional girl at heart, so I won't likely do much pursuing. I have no problem messaging people I'm interested in, but if they respond with single word/line answers, I will generally move on. It pretty much halts the conversation. If I don't get the feeling that someone is that interested, I'll move on. Why waste his time?
