I would like to meet someone I can talk to and have a sense of humor with. It's nice to be comfortable enough with someone to relax, but maybe not so easy with each other that there is no impulse to move further. As for dates, dinner at the bar does seem perfect in the winter, but once it's warmer anything outside sounds wonderful.
I don't need to watch a lot of sports, or TV of any kind really, though I do some and it does sound like more fun with a like minded partner. I'm playing as much sports as I did as a kid, and of greater diversity.
