Well, here goes (not very good at this sort of thing). I'm Ben. I'm a fairly easy-going guy, a bit of a goof sometimes, but I can be serious when the situation calls for it. I enjoy just about anything as long as its outdoors or in good company, and I suppose I'm a bit of a nerd at heart (I'm a bigtime book junkie). I enjoy going out on the town now and again to have a few drinks and check out some of the local bands or events, but I'm also just as content to lay low around the house and cook, read, or sit back and watch a good movie. I tend to be a bit nervous when I first meet someone, but it doesn't take much to get me to loosen up.
What I'm looking for is an intelligent, caring, and open minded person who shares some of the same interests I do, and who wouldn't mind turning me on to some of theirs as well. I think a good sense of humor is very important, and I'd really like to find someone who is happy just being a goof with me sometimes. I like to think I'm a good listener, and I hope I can find a woman who is as well.
Anyways, like I said before, I'm not very good at filling these things out, and I'm sure I haven't answered everything you might want to know about me. I'm pretty much an open book, so feel free to ask me anything =)
i suppose a first date really depends on who's with me. Dinner and a movie is always fun, but I'm up for anything as long as it gives us a chance to talk and get to know each other. I'm a big fan of going out for coffee, a drink, or a walk somewhere and just having a nice conversation.
