FMM: DatingWhat is your current relationship status? (Be as specific as you’d like to be!) happily married. We dated for a year - lived together for 3 & have been married for 5. He said he knew almost immediately that I was going to be the one he was going to spend the rest of his life with. I wasn't as quick.
List a few qualities that you look for in a significant other. I found this changed as I matured. In high school, I thought I wanted to marry a 90 year old millionaire & never have kids. Early 20s - someone who was sexy & fun & looked great in a tight pair of Wranglers (my daughter's dad resembled Tim McGraw - but notice I'm not with him anymore!!!). After I divorced him - I found that personality and character were most important. My husband now is a short, chubby, computer geek & I won't trade him for nothing because he treats me & the girl well.
If you could choose to date one character in TV or film, who would you choose? And which characteristics are most appealing? Ummm. Gil Grissom (William Petersen) from CSI. He was smart & sexy in his own odd way. He'd be fascinating to talk to .
How long should you date before becoming exclusive? I guess that would depend on the circumstances.
What are your thoughts on public displays of affection? I'm all for holding hands and brief smooches. And I've been known to randomly grab Randy's butt as we're walking together. But when it makes people around you uncomfortable - it's time to get a room! I think the cutest thing in the world are 2 old people walking along holding hands!
Do you kiss on the first date? I didn't. The first several times it a hug before it went further.
Biggest turn-off? Rudeness & arrogance.
What’s the first thing you notice about the opposite sex? Eyes. Arms (I like strong arms!!) and I also have a weird infatuation with backsides. I like a nice butt, too!
How long do you/did you wait before becoming intimate? Gosh, I don't really remember. I know I didn't jump right in the sack with him.
Describe your dream date. We do all sorts of stuff together at isn't exactly "normal". One of our first dates was to go see Monster Jam (monster trucks). I don't think it has to be a standard dinner & movie. Just spending time together doing something that you mutually enjoy. But I should be someplace where you can talk - not a concert or such.
