Well, well, some people might find first dates awkward or extremely awkward or even scary... :O. But, on the other hand, I love them. There so exciting and the level of anticipation is so high, it can be quite exhilarating. I guess the question now is why do I love first dates; more specifically what is so "exciting", why is my anticipation so high, and what is so exhilarating about it.
I am just simply good with people. If they are shy then I know how to get them to open up and smile a bit more and talk some. If they are way too talkative about nothing special, I know how to get them to listen more and think a little more. If they are uncertain or uncomfortable, I know how to get them to relax. (In this case, I don't have to do a lot in that my very nature and manner makes others comfortable and relaxed when they are around me or just talking to me...) ;).
It also doesn't help that I am also a very brilliant listener. In that I hear what people are telling me as well as what they aren't telling me. But my listening and awareness goes much further than this. I can also tell by the way a person is talking and behaving what they are feeling (and even thinking at times): the pauses between their words and the way in which they word their sentences. :). Also, silence speaks volumes too... :P
But about what I would do on a first date. This is simple...In that I would probably do whatever both of us felt comfortable doing. It really wouldn't matter all that much because I am comfortable doing a lot of things; and I have the ability to make even the simplest things special and most enjoyable... =). Also, I simply love going really slow as for as deep intimacy goes. In that I love to make love to the mind and the soul, long before I ever make love to the body. Any deeper intimacy isn't "needed" when a woman feels perfectly at ease and perfectly at peace in one's arms...
