Things must start with a pysical attration and hopefully the first exchange of words doesn't ruin that. About me: good sense of humor (a bit sarcastic), love adventure, Mexico, desert, river, traveling (for pleasure), spontanious anything, good music, good wine or a cold beer and casual fun and family. Dressing for a night on the town or jeans and flips work for me. I'm honest, don't like BS or game playing.
First date....take charge and make a decision. Casual atmosphere, maybe a****ail or glass of wine. If the conversation is easy then go from there.
I dont' think you can have a dream date with someone you know nothing about. It can surely get more creative if all goes well.
