I’m 5’7”, lengthy brown hair and a husky kind of guy; I’m not massively overweight, but I do have those extra pounds lying around for rainy days. I usually wear casual clothes and mainly my lucky white shirt (for when I’m writing). I’m an easy going, care free personality that is more inclined to having fun than being serious; but I can be very levelled headed and to the point when I need to. I have been known to be a great conversation when two stand-points clash for a debate. I have wide shoulders and built more like a Rugby player than a more generalised athlete.
I’m an avid writer, and an equally keen reader. I enjoy writing poetry and prose and I can do sincere, romance, comedy or just plain random. I guess you could say I want to become a writer in the future, some world renowned author of epic proportions. If you say that, you’d be right.
I’m also an enthusiastic Poker player and enjoy the Game Theory aspect; I’d like to note now, I’m not a Gambling Addict. I’m interested in the game for its more skilful applications, that is, Poker is more a game of Chess than Gambling, and I’m also a lover of chess. I love the minute details you can pick up on and the way it should be approached as a puzzle to be solved. I’ve fantasised about playing the game professionally, and I’d like to say I’ve abandoned the ideal, but I’d be lying.
I’m a huge extrovert and have a strong interest in Comedy. I’ve been told I’m a funny guy by others, but to me it’s just speaking. I’ve very confident, of which may come across as arrogant to some. I think my biggest dislike would be ignorance; I hate close minded people with a feverish passion. I don’t see the point in living in such a large world and not exploring every aspect of it, including the people and cultures.
Please, don’t think of me as some pseudo-intellectual, tweed jacket wearing snob; I am smart, and I have the ability to learn anything quite quickly, but I’m humble and patient equally. I’m not condescending, and I enjoy meeting a wide variety of people.
I guess if I was to outline the type of person I wanted to meet, I say they would have to be open minded and with a sense of humour that’s strong above all else. They’d have to enjoy being around people, but have a sense of privacy and understand how important it can be. They’d have to be fairly outgoing and enjoy meeting people and friends for a simple afternoon to hang out and have fun. Someone who would enjoy a good discussion or jabber about anything and everything would defiantly grab my attention.
But that’s enough about be for now, how about you…?
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I think, for a first date I’d want to get to know a person much deeper. I’d want something that can be used as an ‘ice breaker’ to set the tide for discussion and questions about the girl I’d no doubt ask, so a movie or something at the comedy club is preferable. I’d also want them to feel comfortable, so maybe an outing with a number of our mutual or individual friends would help them. This would set the scene for casual conversation and mindless banter that would allow us to become friends instead of making it a future relationship interview.
After that, I’d want to get to know about them; the entire group would go to a pizza shop, where I could sit aside from the group and bombard the girl with questions, no doubt shining a light in her face and having a friend stand by to say things like “We have evidence to the contrary,”… ok, so maybe I’m exaggerating ;). We’d go to a Coffee shop instead :P. Honestly, though, I would want to sit aside from the group and discover more about the person. I’m a good listener, and I can ask quite a lot of questions, so it would be interesting. But I’m no stranger to answering questions, so the lil’ conversation would give us both some time to get to know the other.
After that, perhaps something else to test our new found knowledge of the other; maybe a trip to the arcades of a fun fair, something that the entire group can enjoy, and wouldn’t feel stressed to make an effort to be sociable. Even a collective outing to the pub would work. No nightclubs or dance halls… it’s not that I don’t dance, I just can’t… so be warned ;)
After that, I’d walk my date to where ever she needed to go, making sure she got home safe, and hopefully arrange another pleasant evening of interrogation ;)
