we start off chatting online. when things go well, We meet for "coffee" or drinks. If that's progressing well we stay for a meal. lunch or dinner. followed by maybe a movie or walk on the beach, talking, getting to know one another. Thrilled with commonalities and facinating different points of view. Time becomes meaningless! It hurts to part!
OR the first date could start with drinks and end with picnic style dinner. Alone time on his boat, rocked by gentle waves, caressed by silken breezes, entertained by facinating minds and titilated by .... well you get the idea!
