I am honest and faithful. I will make you laugh. I am also absent-minded and a bit uncompromising when it comes to the social niceties. You might be pleased that I join you for a hike, but not as often as you'd like. I'm not very temperamental and used to think that that would be something women would like but they tend to be a little disappointed for some reason. Oh the mysteries that plague us!
I live my life in a perpetual state of fascination and astonishment. People never cease to amaze me. I want to learn everything and can talk all night about nearly anything. I play a lot of guitar and chess (I know, ladies, you're so impressed by the royal game) and am always learning more about cooking. I don't watch a lot of television but some (mad men, orange is the new black, deadwood, sopranos, the wire, person of interest). I listen to almost any music (tragically hip, spoon, public enemy, willie nelson, los lobos) but have a strong aversion to opera and musicals. I like to watch football and hockey but i don't spend a lot of time on it. I love to jump in the car on saturday with a cooler and a change of clothes. The secret of life is that it ends...
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A coffeehouse. Someplace nice for dinner, not too formal but no chain restaurants or cheap places. Maybe someplace else for dessert. I prefer museums or live music over movies since you can talk.
