I'm told I have a great sense of humor and positive outlook, which I still retain, despite a string of bad events last year, when my long term relationship ended abruptly. I'm now residing in downtown ABQ, and when I'm not there, I spend some weekends at a place I co-own in Pagosa Springs, CO. Professionally, I am working towards developing my own private law practice, where I specialize in environmental and water law - I previously worked for private industry, larger firms, and local government. Enough about work. Personally, I like most outdoor activities and I really like good food. Also most styles of music and I'm learning to appreciate different arts. I'm basically a pretty youthful and curious guy who likes to learn and try new things.
The first date needs to be "safe" for both of us and also fun. I'm thinking of two possiblities. The first and simplist is a lunch or dinner at a nice restaurant - not too nice so that its stuffy, but also not so casual so that its crowded and noisy and we can't talk. The other possibility is to combine some low-key activity, like a visit to the zoo, a tram ride, or an afternoon show or something, with a meal afterwards. I am not intent on romance or intimacy right away, my feeling is that those things would eventually flow naturally if the chemistry is right.
