Let me start out by saying this. I'm not cool. I gave up on being cool years ago. Being cool has so many rules. You have to dress a certain way, act a certain way, listen to the right music, watch the right movies, hang out with the right people. Forget it! Too restricting. I'm a geek, and proud of it. I dress in Star Wars and comic book costumes, collect comics, sing karaoke, watch silent movies, listen to Rockabilly, and actually go to church because I want to, and you know, what? I have so much more fun being a geek, you can keep cool. I don't want it.
I should mention that lately I've been thinking about possibly moving soon and have been looking at one of the bigger Pacific Northwest cities, possibly Portland or Seattle. If anybody is from those cities, I'd love to hear how you like it there.
The girl I'm looking for is a lot of things, some of them contradictions. She believes in Christ and loves God but is capable of talking about other things. She has conservative values but liberal politics. She's social but sometimes she prefers a night at home with an interesting book or a good movie. She prefers hanging out with a small group of good friends to a raging party. She's kind and considerate, but stands up for what she believes. She's not afraid to cry or to smile. She's fun to be around, but knows when it's time to be serious. She likes a date to be simple. She doesn't need the a limo, the most expensive restaurant, or a complex plan. She knows that with the right person you can have fun doing anything, or sometimes doing nothing at all. She enjoys the arts and loves to try new cultural things, but she's not pretentious, and sometimes loves a good sitcom or movie as much as a play or the symphony. She likes new things, but also enjoys the classics. Sometimes she loud and energetic, sometimes she's quiet and shy. If this sounds like it might be you. let me know.
What we would do on a first date would depend on what we figured out when we made the date, but I do know some things I would like to see happen on a first date. I would like to find out about the girl, what makes her laugh and cry and what her hopes and dreams are. So otherwise I don't care whether it's dinner and a movie, meeting for coffee or sodas, or taking a walk in a park. If we click, we could click anywhere, and I'm hoping to meet someone that the first date would be a lot of laughing, sharing and fun.
