None of my friends believe it but I'm actually pretty shy when it comes to meeting new people. Now once I've hit a comfort level with a new acquaintance I have no problem opening up, I guess that's why friends don't see the shyness.
I enjoy movies, books, wine and nice dinners. I love snow skiing and try to get out west at least once a year. I've always enjoyed traveling and last year was a highlight reel in travel, I spent New Years in Florence, Italy and this past summer I went to Russia, visiting Moscow and St. Petersburg. This year won't be as exotic, but just as much fun I'm sure.
I'm not a huge sports fan, but I do love my hockey. I used to live in Raleigh and my favorite team is the Hurricanes, followed closely by my new home team the Tampa Bay Lightning.
My iPod/iPhone has a pretty eclectic mix of music from classic rock, country, jazz, and blues to tuvan throat music.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Coffee, a drink, or just a downtown park, chat and see what happens.
