...but if that's not what you're looking for, I am the person for you.
Ok ok...just a bit of humor. ;)
I am looking for someone who attracts me on other than just a physical level. It's quite simple. I am looking for someone who is adult enough to keep a relationship going without any pointless drama...someone whom I can carry on a conversation about a topic that we find mutually interesting...someone with whom I have some overlapping interests, yet someone who has interests of their own that I can learn about.
Activities? Museum visit, rock climbing (haven't tried it but would try it indoors first), coffee and book browsing in some bookstore, skiing, skydiving...there are few activities I wouldn't try with the right person.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First would be different from person to person. No such thing as 'one first date fits all.'
