Chemistry, communication and reciprocation: I'm waiting for that - and the ever-elusive spark.
If I am anything, it's honest. The way I see it the more you know about me (and vice versa) the better we can treat each other. Cut the BS, shoot straight, kiss each other's wounds and move on. So I prize honesty with a tactful approach, unless we can both get a good laugh out of it then tact is out the window.
I like a dark sense of humor. I'm pretty much over the bar scene and drinking, although I love concerts and miss karaoke even if I'm waay past my prime singing days. I'm most comfortable in a tshirt and jeans but tolerate dressing up when I have to. Overall, I couldn't care less about money, status or material things. I just want to be happy.
What makes me happiest is connecting one-on-one, getting lost in conversation and laughing about dumb stuff or enjoying a comfortable silence while driving aimlessly and letting the radio play. Just sharing good times with someone who has a good heart, deep soul and sh!tty sense of humor sounds like heaven to me.
In the long run I am seeking a LTR but would be really glad just to make a new FRIEND (the companion/confidant type, not hookup). Isn't that how it's supposed to start out?
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Some place good for getting to know each other, sharing stories and experiences first. Dinner, coffee, drive, something lame like that. Then?
To the moon if we're lucky.
