A typical gemini in all my life, the world is endlessly interesting. I look like a kid, and act like a kid a lot of the time too. Very young, but I seem to attract women of all ages, though the 18 year olds are typically a bit too immature to really spend exclusive time with. I'm a flirt in my own world, and a shy well mannered young man in front of your parents. My life continues its passion from my first yawn in the morning, to the last smile into the night. My friends that are girls say that I am very intense at first for most people. Guess that happens when you expect love and affection from total strangers within minutes. Like I said... I'm just a kid who doesn't mind showing someone he likes them, completely vulnerable, with no hidden agenda other than to enjoy the moment, and proceed from there. Makes sense why I want to be an elementary school teacher now hmm?
I want to meet you. Honestly, I have met too many people in my life who have different beliefs, are athletic, fat, christian, new age, men, women, gay, straight... basically any extreme that is either attractive, or unattractive to me, and it doesn't mean I will or will not get along with them. I guess that first and foremost, I want to meet you, whether it is a couple of short email exchanges, or a couple of decades of friendship. I suppose that either we will connect, or we won't, and no matter what you do or don't do, we will both have a good idea fairly quick if we like being around each other.
I really, really hate first dates that require a lot of talking. Not to say that I like watching movies either, but it really sucks when a first date turns into an interview. In fact, all the first dates that have gone really well have focused on spending time with the person, just goofing around, whether it is iceskating, or going for a walk on the beach (I know, seattle is cold, brrr). And it's not about getting the facts about the other person, it is about connecting with the person on a subconscious level, beyond words. It's when you stop thinking, and you just start enjoying.
I suppose that if I had to go on a first date tomorrow, and it was a blind date, I would take the girl to a class... maybe improv or an art class, two things which I have no experience in. It is as if when two people can start focusing on something else, they can naturally begin to get to know each other, without pressure of forcing interaction. They can learn and play together like children. I remember as a kid, I always felt closest to the girls that could read faster than me, or score a goal in soccer on me, and girls who would hit me and run away with a smile on their face.
