I am pretty laid back. I am not looking for someone to really wine and dine me (even though I did tell Ike he had to, that was just to make him make an effort, not because it is really something I desire).
Life is pretty simple for me now. Ideally, I would like to have someone over to my home and I would cook for them, we could sip some wine, watch a movie, talk and get to know each other better.
Or, another great date is to go to a baseball game. Real casual and laid back. Hot dogs for dinner, great seats, and a mutual love of baseball.
I do like nice dinners and restaurants; I grew up on them. But, I would now like to try and make those places for special occasions – birthdays, anniversaries, congratulations (promotion, etc.), etc. Over the years I have found that I have come to expect those type of places because that is how I was raised – but it’s not the way life should be. It should be the quality of the time spent together, not the cost of the meal.
I would cherish the simple events that these would be and the casual atmosphere may encourage honesty instead of putting on a false bravado. I am tired of guys pretending to be something they are not. I just want the real person, right up front. I don’t like being four months into something and discovering the person I thought they were doesn’t exist. This has happened too many times.
I wish I had something more exciting to share with you – a bigger dream date idea, but I am pretty simple nowadays.
Tell me, what would be a date you would love to go on?
