If you can argue with me that my most disliked films of all-time is one of YOUR favorite movies, then you've caught my attention! Honestly, I'm looking for someone who talks a lot and challenges me in what I believe in. =P
My perfect match would be someone who shares similar interests as me. I enjoy movies, sports, hiking, pets, traveling, writing, art, history, and sharing an interesting conversation with anybody.
Life is a never-ending ride; therefore, my goal in life is to continue learning new things by reading, writing, traveling and continuing to meet new people. You never know what important & interesting knowledge you'll learn from somebody or from their culture.
As for an initial meeting, a good and first time impression is very important, but being yourself is more crucial. It's a time to start a one-one conversation and within a couple of minutes, you'll know exactly if you're compatible or not. I would begin a 1st date by going somewhere where the two of us would enjoy going. Such as a favorite coffee shop, or a dog park, a museum, or a sporting event. These are places that we can enjoy our interests and start an intelligent conversation.
To sum everything up, I want to meet somebody that will give me the love and opportunity to say the exact same thing that Billy Crystal told Meg Ryan at the end of the 1989 film "When Harry met Sally". =)
