I believe a woman needs to respect the man she is with, and the man needs to love the woman he is with. What makes me respect z man is someone who is always growing in his career and personal life. Being successful in business is very important to me along with not having a victim mentality. I am not interested in the past relationships and what someone did yo someone else. I believe in romance, chivalry, respect and love.. Casual endeavors don't work for me. I love to have fun, have new experiences and truly enjoying life. I'm not picky, just like the best stuff life has to offer.
Leading a healthy lifestyle is important to me. However, I don't obsess about it.. Big turn off to go out with someone who is allergic to carbs, meat, sugar, shellfish, butter etc.
I have 2 kids who are 13 and 17. Live my kids, but ready to be a little selfish. Som someone with small kids or difficult kids won't work for me. I have a very demanding career, my plate is full, not looking to make it harder. At the end, doesn't it boil down to whether the person you are with adds or takes away?
Perfect date is when you still like the person you are with 10 years later. I am looking for a monogamous , commiited relationship. Sex does not come before that is established.
