Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I want to have intellectual intercourse on my first date. If our minds meet, I will be happy. I am a person who intensely appreciates beauty -- and beauty can be found in many things. Beauty can be a warm conversation, a heartfelt laugh, listening deeply to what is being said. I hate the process of chase, loath games, but love companionship enough to wade through the process. My heart is filled with affection. It's kind of heavy to carry around.
