I think there is no such thing as a regrettable date, I always learn something new, and have formed some close friendships in some cases.
I have two children, ages 9 and 10. They are absolutely brilliant, perfect, adorable children. I enjoy taking them camping, doing nature walks, and playing all manner of crazy games with them. When I was younger, I rode my bicycle across the country on a whim. I like to exercise on semi regular basis, and try to eat healthy. I do go nuts from time to time with junk food, and I don't regret it.
I like to get to know each other in an informal manner. I would have a good time doing chores, with the right person. I am still open to coffee or anything else, I don't expect to actually do chores on a first meeting. :)
Last year a woman called and asked to borrow a "large pot" for thanksgiving. I didn't know who she was, and I don't know how she had my number. So I brought it right over. I kept thinking how odd the request was, and how odd it was that I was going over there. She invited me to stay and help her cook for her kids, and so I did. We ate together, and it was a great time. She was not at all my type, and you know, it just doesn't matter. Everyone is great, and the opportunity to interact with someone inside their little world, is a privilege and enlightening. Woo hoo.
Hope this help you to understand me. Still better, just write me I love to answer questions or flirt a little.
