As a whole, I think that people in general take life waaaayyyy to seriously. Aspirations are great...don't get me wrong, but take some time to smell the roses!
I want to have fun, be crazy, let loose. It's been a long time since I've done that, and if I remember correctly, I liked it!
Dating, whats that? I prefer not to use the word date, it seems intimidating, and that there is so much on the line.
That being said, how about meeting for drink, bowling, walking through the river valley or anything else that seems natural.
