Me? I guess you could best describe me as experiential. I enjoy trying new and different things; sometimes if only for the experience. I've done a little bit of traveling, and one of the things I like the most about it is when I get the chance just to walk around in the new area and experience it in an organic way. While I'm sure I would have fun at a resort in say, Cabo San Lucas, I think I would prefer a stay in Guanajuato instead. I see the former as sort of manufactured and cookie cutter, and the latter as more real and human.
Don't get me wrong, there are things that are tried and true, and just because I've done them before doesn't mean they aren't worth doing again. And sometimes these manufactured adventurers can be a lot of fun. A good experience is a good experience after all. But what I would really like is someone to join me in whatever my next adventure (or misadventure) may be.
Ah the first date... it seems like an anachronism. In this world of online dating the first date is really more of a litmus test I think. Just to see each other, chat, see if there is any chemistry. Because of that I like to keep them simple. Dinner and drinks is usually what I like. Some place nice where we can talk and get to know each other. The second date, well that can be more exciting.
