Not looking for a text messaging buddy. Lets meet for a casual get-to-know-you first date.
Can you explain yourself in words here?
Fun. Independent. Ambitious. Self-sufficient. Adventurous. Educated. Witty. Congenial.
You have to meet a person if you ask me. Trust your instincts. Be brave! Lets get off the Internet.
Anything but "let's get a drink". Be way more creative than that! If you think you need alcohol to talk to people, you might have a problem. I put that problem behind me long ago, and life is fantastic without it.
