Things I look for in a woman is her ability to hold her own in whatever setting we happen to be in. I don't want someone in my life that needs me, I want someone in my life who wants me, there is a big difference in want and need and if you don't realize that we wouldn't be a match. As we get to this age we all have some kind of baggage in our lives, be it ex's, etc., I'm looking for someone whose baggage is more of the carry on size, not a steamer trunk. I love to dance, if it just so happens the mood might strike me while hanging out in the kitchen, I just might grab you for a twirl right there (I'm sort of an incurable romantic) I'll even go to a chick flick, as long as it's got a decent plot.
I was on the board of directors of a local symphony and have a diverse taste in music, but I love my 70's and 80's. Not big on the opera, but will go to the ballet. My views are on the conservative side when it comes to fiscal responsibility and people being responsible for their own actions, in other words, no more taxes, so if you're an Obama fan we're not going to match! I work hard for what I've achieved in this world and I don't mind giving to worthy causes but, I do not believe in just handing people money who aren't willing to do something for it! I think kissing is the most under rated act two people can perform. I think it's sexy to sit over a cup of coffee and just talk looking at each other. I know the minute I meet someone whether I'm attracted to them or not, after that, there has to be some substance behind the outer shell to make what we both hope to have, work.
OK, here's a p.s. to all this, DO NOT contact me if you just got out of a relationship, don't know if you're ready to date or are playing games on this site trying to see how many people will respond to you! I'm one of the few people on here it seems who actually would like to meet someone to have a future with. If I'm interested I will message you, I will respond to any message I get although it may not be the answer you're looking for. I believe everyone deserves a response.
I can't believe as adults I have to put this last paragraph in here, but I'm tired of the sophmoric attitudes people take to on line dating!
It's not about the journey, it's who your taking the journey with!
