I've had all my shots and I have no criminal record. My job, looking after wild animals, is fairly physical, so in my spare time I like to do creative things. I usually have a lot of projects on the go at any given time, but I like to think that I am inwardly a fairly tranquil person.
I would like to find a woman, younger than me, with a sunny outlook on life, self-confident, openminded, and with the ability to appreciate the good in others. I see a silly streak as being a good thing. In fact, it's essential. Athough shared interests are wonderful, having a similar general outlook is more important to me (though an interest in the arts would certainly be a good thing).
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
When I first meet face-to-face someone I've met in cyber setting such as this, I don't think of it as a real 'date' in the fullest sense; that first meeting is just a get together, usually for coffee or lunch or something, with no pressure or major expectations. Mind you, this approach could be all wrong, so I'm TOTALLY open to suggestions.
