I feel that getting together at some coffee house, is a better solution to getting to know someone, instead of just roaming through countless profiles trying to see if that fella fits your standards. It gets you out of the house, you get to sit down in a comfortable setting, have a cup of blended coffee, relax, and just take it easy. Mmmm, kind of like coming home from work on a beautiful day, taking off your shoes and going to the kitchen for a cork remover, so you can relax on your porch taking in all the worlds pleasures, while sipping on a glass of your favorite, pinot noir.
Sorry, that does sound good. Mmm, I hear starbuxs calling.
Something simple, and easy, like going to a coffee shop for a latte, and the atmosphere, is relaxed. So we can talk and get to know each other better, and then when we realize that we could potentially look forward to finding out more about each other, then we could go to either a place to have a bit of fun, either mini golfing, Dave & Busters, or something where we can still talk, but also have fun. Because isn't that what dating is all about? Fun!!!
I know tradition is dinner and a movie, however, the dinner you get to hear all about the person your now in shell shock about because you just met them. Or you hear about their day, and the simple common, information, not the tried and true information that makes you, well You, that takes time. However if you can take people and put them into a comfortable setting, that they will relax and you will get to see the genuine person. Not some shell of what they want you to believe that they are actually, because your defensive walls are up. Defensive walls are a good thing, but if your trying to prove that the person you have described in your profile, the walls must comedown to show your true colors. If you active, dinner and a movie wont convey this, if your shy, it will. If you like to help people, maybe schedule something in the future, about going to help some community clubs function. It really depends on you.
