This is a first date kind of question. Can I put my idea of myself in one hundred words?
Ok. I'll give it a try. Humor, excitement, and sharing mutual interests are equally important is finding out what she likes and trying that out. Attraction (of the mind and the body, shared ideas and beliefs) is what works best for me.
As far as music goes, I get a kick out of rock, blues (Howlin' Wolf) and jazz (Miles Davis on forward) and occasionally the classical piece.
Modern art is a mind-expander and I do love places like MOMA in NYC. Poetry, fiction and the right history book are my favorite reads.
Meeting people from different places is always fascinating. Although I'm not very good at learning new languages it broadens my understanding of mankind.
When traveling I'll rough it, but honestly I prefer breakfast in bed at a five-star hotel.
Getting to find out what a woman wants is probably the most exciting part of a relationship. It's even better if she thinks the same about me.
