Returning to school - anyone know statistics? - and I’d like someone who can complement me. I have some preferences, which I hope you’ll see as a good thing.
I’m interested in people who are athletic, can grill a good salmon steak (and doesn’t mind that I can hardly cook!) , and can challenge my mind! My deal breaker is a person who is patronizing. I detest cutesy pet names that dumb girls down, sorry! I do want to meet someone who will teach me things, both intellectual and recreational. I’m that person who, you try one of my activities, I’ll let you pick the next one.
Since moving to Colorado, I’ve discovered that I love line dancing! (Though still an amateur) I’m happy to go rock climbing, biking or go see a baseball game (I prefer wine but in the spirit of sports enthusiasm I’ll join you in a beer!)
I respect a guy with strong values, even if I may not agree with them. This is because I feel that principles help give a person direction in life. A wishy washy personality isn’t very appealing, and especially with initial dating, learning a person’s point of view on certain subjects also provides insight on that person’s good and (less desirable) traits.
People have told me that I am often quiet upon introduction. This is probably true, and in the beginning I prefer to listen. Find a connection, and I can definitely be a talker. This is also why I need to be around a person with a good sense of humor. Even an average dry joke can break the ice on a first date. Otherwise, how are two “shyish" listeners supposed to start a conversation?
Enough information for now? Can’t wait to learn about you!
