I like to see myself as a person who is able to have a good time no matter the circumstances, this be at work or socially, AND ALWAYS up for a night on the town. I'm Irish and like to think I could talk the leg of a stool.
I think that the first thing that I would do is meet in a environment that socially settling, it being the first date nerves need to be eased, this would probablly be a quiet pub. And then on for a meal. Obviously this would be the womens choice. And then I would let the night progress from there.
