First dates are awkward or can be. However, there isn't a shy bone in my body. I am a good listener and love to learn new things. Very esay to get along with and I love to please and give. Maybe too much. At least that's what I've been told. I am not a know-it-all and I can still learn new things. A first date should be about you. Making sure you're comfortable. The only other thing I can think of is, if you live further than an hour drive, it won't work. I've tried it and even though we hope it will last, reality is that long distance relationships are difficult. Again, my opinion. Oh, one last thing. No Photo - No Response. It's only fair.
