As far as dates go, I would much rather grab my telescope and go star gazing, or do something creative than blow a bunch of money going to a trendy restaurant. That said, every once in a while a fancy meal is VERY nice... and I am on a bit of a mission to go to every Steven Starr restaurant in Philly... I enjoy cooking, and I make a mean roast, so if you like traditional Sunday dinner, message me and I will make you fat with Pork crackling/ scratchings.
I am being completely forthcoming when I say that I believe that romantic relationships are a team effort. Everything I have seen and experienced supports this hypothesis. I am NOT looking for someone who will be nice to me and take care of me (although if I'm sick, that would be lovely) I am looking for someone who will challenge me intellectually, argue with me (even though I'm super stubborn) if it is warranted, support me when life's challenges get overwhelming, be my partner in crime/ life/ eating Ben & Jerry's in bed while watching movies, and let me do the same for them. That said, I do not do relationship drama... just as a matter of course. I will not stir things up for the sake of creating drama, and I would appreciate the same courtesy. And I love to cuddle. Just saying.
