I'm a good listener and I like interesting conversations. Unless you're moderately intelligent/sweet, leave me alone.
I love people with creativity and imaginations, big dreams and ambitions; love mornings; love taking pride in my work; avoid people who wine and nag about their problems rather than turning their situation around. I'm looking for someone who is balanced , understanding on many levels and a genuinely nice person.
I am a caring person, love taking walks along the waterfront. I love the spring and fall, exercising, mountain biking on the weekends, camping, outdoor activities in general. I also enjoy reading books and watching classic movies.
I try to enjoy every minute of life. I just moved downtown and I find it amazing. I'm a down to earth kind of guy and up for anything. I love playing squash and will do anything that keeps me from just sitting around, even though I occasionally enjoy staying home doing nothing but relaxing and watching some movies, reading books. I love exquisite food, when I travel, I like to try the local dishes. I love music and can listen to any type as long as it's good. Even though sometimes I am sarcastic, I'm constantly smiling and I'm always trying to make others laugh. I also like dancing, I try :).
I love to joke around and have fun but I can be serious when I need to be. When people around me are happy then that's all I need to make myself feel good as well. I'm definitely looking for someone I can have fun with and can support each other through the best and worst of times. Honesty and trust is a big deal for me and usually will require time for me to let someone in.
I think the most effective method to REALLY get to know a person is to STOP reading and STOP judging and write a Hi message.
But enough about me, tell me more about yourself....
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
For the first date, I'm pretty much open to do anything. I want it to be fun and exciting. It would something where we can converse, be sincere and know each other. Ideally, it would be somewhere small and quiet like at a cafe so we can get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere to see if everything is clicking.
