First things first, I'm actually an Ophiuchus and proud of it, but I didn't know I put in the wrong birth month. Whoops! Bonus points if you are geeky enough to know about Ophiuchus.
I'm a huge history buff, and I love to travel to historical places. My current dream location to travel to is traveling the entire length of the old Silk Road. I'd also LOVE to visit the UK someday. Finally, I've done the day hike up to Half Dome in Yosemite, and I'm curious to see if I can still do it.
Small children never cease to amaze me with their honesty, their unique insight and their zest for life. For some reason, old people amaze me in a similar fashion. I'm particularly amused about how their honesty allows them to insult people accidentally, like when my toddler cousin didn't want to give me a hug after we came back from the Garlic festival! :D
I like walking outdoors because it gives me the opportunity to really think and ponder about the important stuff in life. What's wrong with thinking that "Miss Saigon" is a Vietnamese beauty pageant? How come I always have to sneeze when I'm driving? Those ducks don't have wifi, and they look really content...I wonder why?
Regardless, walking is just so much more enriching than driving along the same path, and not just for the exercise.
So, enough about me...what am I looking for? Interesting women, of course!
A woman who can express herself intelligently and creatively through her own writing is awesome. What? You thought that grammar, punctuation, and spelling were only attractive to women? :D
Women who have natural smiles and an upbeat outlook are fantastic. For example, I like it when a woman cheerfully and genuinely laugh it off when they completely whiff in a friendly game of softball or when their canoe tips over. In other words, a woman that has a list of dealmakers, not a list of dealbreakers.
Nurturing is pretty important too. I like a woman that is genuinely encouraging to someone in a friendly bowling game, even if they throw a lot of gutter balls.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'm not a huge fan of coffee, but what about tea? Or ice cream?
Downtown Disney in Anaheim is also a location I'd love to go on a first meet. So much open area with costumed Disney characters and nearly everybody is in a generally good mood. What's not to like?
Alternatively, I'd prefer a non traditional venue, like a popular restaurant or food truck that has long lines to give us the opportunity to talk. I bowl every week, and I'd love to go bowling on a date.
