Let me start by saying that I am not here looking for sex. I will not reply in your favor to any kind of sexual advance you throw at me. Don't get me wrong, I love sex, but please....do NOT assume that I will go along with any sort of dirty talk or that I am here just to hook up. And do not start your conversation by calling me some sort of term of endearment, i.e.baby, angel, sexy etc...again, I will not respond.
Anyway, I am a huge movie buff and can answer most movie trivia questions you throw at me. This does not mean I have seen every movie known to man nor that I want to see every blockbuster that everyone is talking about. I like comedies, some dramas, some action films, and some scary/creepy. I do love cooking shows and trying new recipes.
I loathe small talk. It's so fake and forced.
Music: My taste in music ranges from Punk to Flamenco . Though my music selection is diverse, my preference the last several years has been rock. Classic rock that is as well as punk and heavy metal. I saw the divine Ms. Joan Jett live a couple of years ago and that's what has switched my musical tastes big time. I mean I've always loved this music but now I listen to it a lot more. Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Stooges, The Runaways, Heart, Kiss, Motley Crue... 4 of those bands I've seen live. Care to guess? I'm also into classic rap these days, Beastie Boys, (RIP Adam Yauch; I literally cried upon hearing the news of his death) NWA, Run DMC, Ice Cube. Again, like the classic rock I've always loved rap, but after watching Straight Outta Compton my love for it all came rushing back. But again, my musical tastes are very diverse. Times I still listen to Hall & Oates (whom I also just saw live!) David Bowie (yup, cried over his death too), The Beatles, The Kinks (I named my car Lola), ok you get the picture.
One more disclaimer: I prefer that you have more than one photo of yourself on this site. Looks aren't entirely important to me, but I'd like to get a good look at who I am chatting with. I don't care to see a pic of your dog (unless you're in the pic too), I don't care to see more pics of material things more than there are pics of you. I don't need to see you shirtless, and if you're bald or balding, please show it. Again, I don't have any issue with baldness, its just that I don't want to be surprised when I meet you. You know? Also, I prefer that you actually have something for me to read about you in the Interests and About Me portions. If you have nice pics and just "ask me" in your About Me, I'm not interested. Or, if there's a pic of you in a group (am I supposed to guess which one you are?) or from a distance and I can barely see your face but you sound interesting, no dice.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Well I'd like to go somewhere relatively quiet in order to hear each other talk because this is the time we're getting our first impressions and seeing if we like each other enough to go on a second date. I think dinner and a couple of drinks is enough time to really know if you want things to go further; it is for me anyway. I don't like to do any 'activities' i.e. Bowling, dancing, etc. on the first couple of dates because I'm usually still a bit shy and won't feel comfortable enough just yet to start 'lettin loose'. Haha. But it's ok if you only feel comfortable with just the drinks part, I'm flexible.
And...I'd like to add this: I do not expect you to dress head to toe in Armani on the first date but I'd like to see that you put some thought into what you wear when we meet. Know this: I have put effort into what I'm wearing so I'd appreciate the same from you. Please don't think I'm being a snob here, but the last couple of first dates I went on showed up in shorts and sandals. I suppose that sort of attire is acceptable if we were to meet at a volleyball game or a pool party. Again, I just ask for a little effort.
