Likes in a woman...
good sense of humor
into sports - bears, bulls, cubs, sox, blackhawks
a woman who knows what she wants and goes after it
classy (well dressed) and doesn't wear a pound of make up to look beautiful. Nothing wrong with some but when you cake it on it looks unhealthy.
enjoys eating out at restuarants
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Depends on the woman I'm taking out, but most likely something small for the first date.
