Hobbies are anything to do with animals, classic rock music, going to concerts, good food and wine. I do alot of volunteer work and like to read, play with my cat, listen to music, etc. I try not to take things too seriously - I try to have fun and know that life is short. I enjoy parties but also enjoy quiet times with Mr. Right, a carton of Chinese food and a DVD.
A perfect first date would be going to an outdoor concert on a beautiful day or enjoying a glass of wine and good conversation, then having a delicious dinner and a walk on the beach. Getting to know the other person is what's really important. That would be after the initial meeting - a latte at Starbucks would be perfect.
