Okay, so you're pretty. Who cares?! Of COURSE you have to be beautiful in this world. The question is: How smart are you? Looks don't impress me; intelligence does. If I'm going to spend my time with you 24/7, then you have to be interesting enough to hold my attention.
My problem with finding a long-term companion is that she has to be both as laid back as me and as intelligent as me. Sorry, I don't care how pretty you are. It's a start, but you gotta impress me intellectually.
Finally, you gotta be the one who asks ME out. I'm not interested in the average woman. I want someone extraordinary. Is it you?
Hmmmm... There's no one formula for a first date. However, some of my past first dates have included movies, dinner, tennis, rock climbing, partying, drinking, cartwheel contests...the list goes on. The real question is: What will we do on OURS?
