I think the right man would like to date me because we would have an enjoyable time. I would make him feel good about himself. I would love to learn about him and his world, what makes him tick, what gives him strength and joy. I have the ability to help people feel comfortable talking about themselves, even when they usually don't.
I love puns, just bantering back and forth (can you guess? meet me at the Status Thread ) and current events. I am a citizen of the world and also try to be knowledgeable about many things. I love good books, good art, good hikes or walks, gardening. So I have a lot of interests that I could share with someone (for a lifetime. Ahem.)
I'm also a fairly good cook. Over the last few weekends, I baked rhubarb muffins w/struesel topping and buttermilk; an egg bake that also had ham, 2 types of cheese, hash browns, green peppers; and onions; and rump roast in the slow cooker with brown gravy, the usual veggies (potatoes n carrots) and a little bit of farmers market spinach.
Oh yeah, and you could take me to the new Star Trek movie and I'd like that.
