Let's see...I just passed the bar exam and am well on my way to becoming an attorney. I became an ordained minister so I could officiate my buddy's wedding. And I sleep with my feet outside the covers because otherwise I have nightmares that my shoelaces are tied together and I can't walk. In the long run, I think shared values are more important than shared interests. I value honesty, integrity, loyalty l, and a good scotch. How about you?
On a first date, you've got to be willing to play by the rules. That means you don't touch doors or chairs, walk to the inside of the sidewalk, etc etc. Like Omar said, "A man's gotta have a code." Mines a little outdated, but it's one of few things I actually take seriously.
