I am understanding, open-minded, kind, tolerant, intelligent, a good listener. I still feel like I'm in my 30's but with a mature outlook, very active, and diverse in my interests. I generally have a dry sense of humor but can be goofy too. I am laid back but active. I grew up in Alaska and the Tahoe/Reno/Carson area, served in the Army and lived in Germany. I like a wide range of music, activities and style. I get along with nearly everyone. I am relatively flexible in my job and if finding the right person means relocating within 100 miles or so that is something I am willing to do.
Coffee or a drink then maybe watching some live music or dancing after. Lunch is nice too. It really depends on personality and comfort level. The most important thing is to get to know someone new and have some time to talk. I think most people know pretty quickly if there is a connection and if it is just the friendship level or something more.
