On a first date, I want to see you get excited about something – I don’t care what – I just want to hear you tell me about something in your life that drives you. Art, science, popsicles, whatever. Don’t try and be modest and coy and say, “oh I’m really boring, tell me more about you!” Be a dork if that’s who you are. Deep down inside, everyone is a dork about something.

2. Talk about your goals/aspirations
3. Talk about yourself and what makes you unique.
4. Your taste in music.
I grew up in jamaica island and spent some time living in yorker and queens before landing here in new york city. I traveled around world and hit 6 countries before finishing my degree but did done at all.
I like making music, both singing and playing bass, in lots of different genres. A few of my favorite bands are The ray j, r&b, jay z,and The Stone Roses.
play games is a big passion of mine. I’ve been play games with my father and always have a few other creative projects going on like to do.
In the next few years, I’d love to find myself living in a new city. Arizona is hot – I miss the rain. I’m not sure exactly where – definitely somewhere with some promising adventures – and hopefully a baseball stadium less than an hour away.

Describe what would you do for a first date. (optional) The longer your description, the more likely it is you will get responses.
One of the coolest first dates I’ve been on started with the woman calling me five minutes before we were suppose to meet and telling me that she had a flat tire and found that her car didn’t have a jack. I drove to where she was, helped her change the tire, and then took her to Magpies for pizza and beer, as we had missed our fancy pants dinner reservation. It was unique, it was spontaneous, and it was really fun. Throw those three factors into any date, and I’ll call you again.
Olive Garden is not a place for a first date… or a second date – maybe a third… but probably not even that. If we’re already geared up for getting to know a new person – it’s only one more step in the right direction to get to know some new food while we’re at it. Ethiopian, Czechoslovakian – I’m always up for an evening of trying new things.
As for evening entertainment – it just depends on the mood. A movie, a concert, a book store, a coffee shop. The only down side to a movie is that you can’t really have a conversation during it. (Unless you’re that person who talks during movies… in which case I don’t want to go to a movie with you.) But, a good movie is worth some silence, as it’ll provide plenty to talk about when it’s through.
