Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'd hope he have the ever popular "sense of humour" and not take himself too seriously, be free to travel, maybe have a slightly different world view; is spontaneous with a well-developed sense of fun, ethical and not a snob. A first date should I think be casual. meeting for a good cup of coffee aat a cafe that perhaps has outdoor tables to watch the people parade while he and I try to determine if we even like one another and if that goes well we can make arrangements for another casual date. But before that I think talking a bit on the phone is very helpful to see if he and I have a good degree of compatibility. Walking on the beach sounds great but it must be a mob scene these days.
