I'm a very warm, social person, but a bit shy at first. I love animals and enjoy going to the park to watch my dog socialize with her pals. I enjoy spending time at the ocean or going to art museums or eating brunch out with friends. I paint semi-abstract pictures and consider myself a pretty creative person. I listen to different types of music, depending on my mood, but mostly rock of various sorts, some classic rock, 60's 70's music, James Taylor, Billy Joel, Nora Jones, Barenaked Ladies etc. One of my favorite things to do on a weekend is to sleep in, cuddle, and then go out for brunch or a picnic in the park with someone special (and maybe my sweet dog).
I think any activity which gives you a chance to talk and get to know each other is good: a meal, a walk somewhere, playing pool, going to a museum. Movies are not so good for a first date, since you send so much time not able to talk.
