Every knight in shining armor needs a princess for whom their every whim is his epic quest.
I have done some pretty cool things in my life. I've met a few celebrities, done some whitewater rafting, sat in the pilot's seat of an F-16, zip-lined, driven almost literally from coast to coast when I packed up my stuff and tried to move to California to pursue a dream, caught a shark while fishing, nearly had my camera seized by boarderds, flown on a C-130 passenger transport, been part of a dragonboat team, gotten a tattoo and a tongue piercing, been across two continents, danced in the streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras, hiked to an old mining town and climbed like a mile of stairs, went swamp boating, I taught myself how to cook and sew, and I do most of my own vehicle maintenance.
I usually go the traditional route of dinner and an activity. Really, I'm the kind of guy that's just as content to be watching a dvd with a young woman in my arms. Drinks can be a fun way to talk; I'm more beer than wine, though.
