classic rock & country. the outdoors & adventure, fishing, hunting, camping, climbing kayaking, etc... photography, kickboxing, brazilian jiu jitsu. i like people who are ambitious and know what they want to do... i like to read (legal and economics history/philosophy, also military history - yes, I'm a nerd) NASCAR, cliff/bridge jumping and a good game of chess over coffee is nice too. i also have a wicked sense of humor, usually involving sarcasm, understatement, irony and plays on words.
p.s. i know every pale, pasty ginger joke in the book... and use them, often.

that depends on the person, but something fun and probably outdoors, or maybe just coffee, whatever. it won't be boring. guaranteed.
