Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I’d like to meet someone who can keep up with me. I like activity and spontaneity. Make me smile and we’re off to a good start. Make me laugh and we’re golden. Be intelligent and witty but don’t be nervous. There’s just no reason to be nervous. I’m not judgmental and won’t make assumptions about you based on a first impression.
As far as interests, keep an open mind. One of the quickest turnoffs for me is someone who won’t even consider the opportunities in front of them. Listen to new music before you decide that you don’t like it just because of the genre. Try that new restaurant in town before you write it off as too expensive. Personally, I enjoy lots of activities: hiking, movies, music, coffee, theatre, camping, computer games, roleplaying, parties, hanging out, cooking, reading, playing piano, etcetera. I could list topics all day!
What I really want is challenging partner. Someone for whom the world is an open market of experiences and tastes waiting to be sampled. Maybe that’s you, maybe it’s not. The only way to really find out is to put yourself out there and see!
