Once upon a time there was a single guy who enjoyed playing rugby, going to the cinema, throwing heavy things around in an odd building called a gym and generally a***ing around with friends.
When not taking part in the aforementioned activities he attempted to lead a double life as a respectable member of society by holding down a remarkably average job as a Civil Servant.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
At the risk of sounding unimaginative I'd look to keep a first date pretty simple and just head out for a drink somewhere. I'd try and avoid anywhere too loud as being hear the conversation is a definite plus.
