I consider myself pretty much a straightforward guy - what you see is what you get. I believe honesty, trust and communication are the keystones of any relationship. I've come to appreciate the simple things in life and have found that I'm more suited to life in a small town rather than in a huge city. Sometimes those simple things can be in the form of a drive out in the country or on a back road as opposed to the interstate, often with the music turned off. In my spare time I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and doing volunteer work in my community. My taste in music spans a broad spectrum of rock, except for the really heavy stuff (and no rap/hip-hop either). My tastes include 60s and 70s classic rock, 80s rock, classic soft rock and some adult comtemporary. Never really got into country music.
I like to treat my date to lunch or dinner, and maybe an activity such as bowling or putt-putt, a visit to a museum or even a walk somewhere. Not crazy about going to a movie on the first date. I'd rather focus on getting to know my date rather than directing my full attention to a movie screen.
