Ever the romantic yet respectful, I enjoy music, discussing current events, driving, reading, movies, dining out or cooking at home, but relish quiet time also. Am easy to get along with and have a good sense of humor.
Once a guy who ran all over Manhattan where I worked for many years, I now favor a more relaxed style. Don't want to "do it all, see it all" in NYC (again) as so many do it seems. There is nature to see and enjoy, small towns with their book stores, museums, antique shops, coffee shops and more in the Hudson Valley or Long Island to explore and enjoy. Maybe even a boutique you might enjoy! A drive to somewhere or nowhere can also be interesting.
I prefer that the first date be casual, such as a drink or "coffee and". I feel the focus should be on us. If we both want to make more of it, that door can be opened then and there!
