So here's the thing w/ me...I'm one of those guys you either love or you hate, no in between. And that's because I'm always "me" no matter what the situation. I'm going to say what I think because I'm an honest guy.
And I'm a smart ass...but in a funny way, I was voted class clown...
I travel the country for my political consultant business. They say never talk politics on the first date...Look at me breaking rules already!
I have both an Ass Degree and a BS degree...funny how they abbreviate those...
I'm really just a laid back guy, who deep down, you know you want to get to know better ; )
Oh, almost forgot, have a dog (basset/beagle mix)...gotta love having pet! ; )
I really believe this depends on the person and the type of connection you have with them. If I had a first date all planned that I would take every girl on then there would be nothing special about it. I think it's best to take personal aspects about the person and apply them when coming up with your ideal first date.
