Let's see. Carpenter. I have lived in about six different states. I have the most beautiful brat of a puppy. I enjoy music of all kinds( excluding country and rap). I love movies, fires, walks, random weekend trips, shooting, drinking with good people. Concerts and breweries are probably my two favorite social activities.
In my opinion, I think the best first date is simple and sincere. A light dinner and drinks to spark conversation and to really get to know the person. Sometimes there can be awkward silence, but if there isn't, that is usually a great sign. Cap the night off with a nice little walk and see where things go.
