Chemistry is a must. I don't believe you have to have everything in the world in common. A relationship is about chemistry and the magic that takes over when you think about that person; that makes you get excited, have butterflies, and want to be with that person no matter what. It's nice to have a few common interests, but if you have chemistry it won't matter. You'll be happy no matter what you are doing.
I'm looking to find someone who has sponteneity. Someone who wants to travel and explore the world. Someone who wants to try new things together, and live life to the fullest.
I'm very laid back. Enjoy evenings out on the town, but also quiet nights at home. Like the beach in the summer and skiing in the winter. Enjoy bbq's with friends, hiking, baseball at petco, 'SC and Charger football, and amusement parks with the kids. Like all types of music, but lean towards country -- Stagecoach has become a yearly tradition.
Let's meet for coffee, a drink, or a bite to eat. I believe in chemistry and think meeting in person is so much better than chatting online.
UPDATE 9/27/12 ----------------------------
Ok, so based on a few dates, I thought it wise to provide a few must haves:
-- Must like to watch a Charger/Padre/SC games once in a while. I like to watch the games alone or with friends once in a while. My kids games will always trump... that's why we have DVR's - just stay away from the internet.
-- Must not get offended if I drop the F-bomb. I don't talk like a sailor, but do drop the occasional f-bomb once in a while. Don't look at me like a killed your dog.
-- Must believe in chemistry. That's why we date. To find someone we have chemistry with to hopefully turn into a long relationship. Dates with no conversation are the worse. I'll always try to make conversation, but don't feel bad if you don't think we click. I won't be offended. I would rather not waste anyone's time.
-- Must like to get out. I work hard, and have my kids 50% of the time. So every couple weeks I do like to let loose once in a while. Don't like to stay home and would rather be doing something active or out with friends or out with a partner.
UPDATE 2/23/13 ----------------------------
Things got a little tiring online, so took some time off for the holidays and the beginning of the year. I'm back now, and things haven't changed much. Still looking for someone with my must haves above. Looking to find a connection with someone, meet up for a drink or coffee, and see what happens. Good luck all.
