Easy-going, stable, financially secure, regular guy that loves to have fun and enjoy life. I believe in working hard and then playing just as hard (in non-destructive ways----i.e. I mean going to concerts and shows, not drinking myself sick). I would say I have liberal social and political views but a little old-fashioned when it comes to being a romantic and commitment in relationship---without that, lets face it, there is no relationship. I have also been told I have that somewhat rarer quality in a man to understand that communication is both a two-way street and the essence of a REAL relationship. I have learned over the years to listen and to say just how I feel because that, in my opinion, is the only way for two people to connect. And isn't that what this is all about----relating to and connecting with the like-minded? In a minute someone is going to remind me that without instantly recognized chemistry, the other stuff doesnt matter----and I say fair enough---if we arent attracted to each other, I agree its a "no-go" right from the "get-go". But really, there is so much more that is important once we pass the chemistry question. IF my attempt to communicate here piques your interest, we can get to all that later, though.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I am a big believer in realism over hyperbole so I will be honest here rather than engage in fantasy just for the sake of impressing---hopefully honesty is more impressive. No I dont have my own limo or a skybox at Dolphin stadium. But I do make sure to spend quality time on a first date looking into my date's eyes and engaging in smart and fun conversation to get to know her better and revealing my personality in the interest of full and fair disclosure. I would start with asking my date her favorite restaurant and taking her there for a great dinner. We could then either to a concert or show, or if she preferred, a night club, then go for coffee or just talk for a bit to end the night. If all goes well, then I would call her and set up date number two.
