I believe that relationships are created out of strong friendship, and so if you take time to get to know me you won t be disappointed. You will find me a pleasant companion in most situation from casual to formal. I enjoy good conversations, but I can do it with a good sense of humor. I am open to any activities as long as we can talk. Since I am prone to work hard, it is somewhat important that a woman is similarly passionate with his profession but also has time to be compassionate, kind and giving to others around us. Professional focus is fine, but escapes are essential and that takes willingness on both sides. I think our first date should provide ample time for conversation and discovery. The setting should be quiet and non-distracting like a nice restaurant. Not formal but a very comfortable atmosphere, stress free with excellent food, of course. If it suits us, entertainment at a local club would also be a nice chance to share some common interests. We will know that the first date is doing good if we see that time just seemed to fly by at the restaurant before we knew it s closing time. If the end of theevening finds us with so much more to learn about each other and we both feel like doing it again, and we can t wait to meet again, then I d say that the first date went very, very well. . . perfect!
