I'm looking to talk and to get to know a woman as a friend and if something clicks then that would be great. Expectations and pressure to be some sort of a fairy-tale match and relationship can at times stop people from talking and being themselves. I hope for easy conversation and an understanding of one's humor and view on life.
Maybe I will meet a good friend here but not a love interest. Maybe the love of my life is right around the corner but for me I prefer to speak to women as a friend and not place pressure upon the situation as something more. I feel that two people will know when a connection happens, even if it is just as friends.
I am very liberal politically and do not want to argue about politics. I'm interested in many new points of view but I see no point in debating areas I already see to be crystal clear. I have no desire to change anyone's mind to think like me and visa versa. I completely enjoy an intelligent debate that may offer insight to any situation. Critical thinking and compassion is a must.
I like to cook, I'm into organic foods, not a hard core veggie but I keep it pretty clean, I don't preach foody philosophy to others, do as you wish. I'm into current music KCRW...NPR. Hip Hop, to Beck. I like fashion and design but not a slave to it. Snowboarding is cool, I don't hang on the beach tanning, I get bored doing that.
I like to keep moving and laughing. I can be pretty sarcastic but not mean. I feel that speaking is as valuable as listening. It's good to hang with a person that forms their own opinions and at the same time a person that can see all sides of a story. I'm not a cheat, never was and i don't really like to hang with cheaters, not even as friends. I understand making mistakes but there is a limit to repeated mistakes and manipulation. Hopefully you understand what I mean.
I like to travel, see the world. I like people that are curious and not filled with fear, that being said, I'm scared of snakes....sorry about that, if it makes any difference, I like shopping for pretty shoes!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A first date would be great when you did not know you were on a first date. If it just kinda happened naturally and you walked away feeling that this woman is pretty d*mn interesting. Other than that, cooking, eating, dancing, talking is a good way to spend time learning about a woman.
