Generally speaking, I have always tried to involve myself in work, community and social activities that I can approach with passion and enthusiasm. The first thing people usually notice about me is my sarcasm and dry sense of humor. At the moment, my hectic work schedule doesn't accomodate much leisure time. However, when I'm not working, I love watching college football and basketball with friends. I also really enjoy staying physically active, either by working out at the gym or by playing sports with friends.
I believe that trust is an integral part of a successful relationship, so honesty is the most important character trait I look for in someone.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
For me, there's no such thing as a prototypical first date. I usually try to keep a first date fairly low-key and relaxed. I've found it takes some of the first date pressure off to hang out in a group setting (comedy show, bar, live music performance, etc.) or meet up for an activity like pool, darts, etc., in which we share a common interest.
