I've embraced my inner geek and seek something similar in a man. I'm an aspiring academic who loves going ninety miles an hour, but can take the time to relax and enjoy a quiet evening with a little wine. I'm socially and environmentally aware, a dedicated volunteer with community groups, a good listener and typically in a good mood. When the sun is shining I'm sure to be in it soaking it up and feeding of its energy.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First dates are good for talking and getting to know one another. If someone wants to take me to a movie I will most likely say no. Someting casual is always nice, like grabbing drinks and maybe catching some live music. I'm also not opposed to walks on the waterfront and visiting local galleries.
