I have a professional career. I have my own place, car, etc. I tend to be a little shy until I get to know someone, but after that, they'll find out I can be a bit of a smart ass also. I don't take myself too seriously. I dress professionally for work or when else needed, but I prefer to be dressed casually. You'd also be much more likely to find me with a beer in hand than a glass of wine. I like to go to concerts, movies, amusement parks, zoos, museums or other touristy spots, baseball or football games, smaller bars, etc. that have either DJ's or live bands. I grew out of the DC club type thing a long time ago. The traits I'd be looking for in someone for a potential relationship would include: having an established career/trade; being self-sufficient and independent; enjoy getting out and doing things rather than spending all your free time on the couch; having an interest in establishing a potential long term relationship, not just looking for some type of "hook up". I was married previously and am currently divorced. I would consider the possibility of getting married again in the future, but I'm not looking to rush into a marriage. I'm particularly attracted to Caucasian, Latino or other Olive complexions. Please be animal-friendly and do not contact me unless you're looking for long-term relationship. Also, as my profile says, I'm a smoker so you must be okay with that. I hope to quit eventually but don't expect to in the immediate future.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'd prefer a first date to be something really simple, like a cup or coffee or a beer. If things go well, then we could extend it further that evening if we both have time, etc.
