I was recently at a multi-cultural wedding in Nassau, Bahamas. One of my old friends started making fun of how I was able to comfortably jump into different conversations and actually contribute something. He called me a worldly man. Seeing as my hero in life is the guy from the Dos Equis commercials (half kidding), I was flattered.
I'm a curious gentleman. I like to draw on a variety of experiences to be able to relate to people and understand what makes them tick. I like to have different types of fun: Traveling, Kayaking in the SF Bay (I live one block away), fine dining (Foreign cinema is one of my favs), live music, hiking, museums, and independent/foreign films...
When it comes to night life, the dive bar doesn't do it for me unless it's a week niqht. I like music and Ambiance. I like to mix it up on different nights or even on the same night. I can start with wine, Tappas/dark chocolate/cheese, and a scintillating conversation at the Press Club and end up working up a sweat at a dance club into the ungodly hours of the morning. Other nights, I can go for a quiet Dinner, live classic Jazz, a nice Milonga, or even the symphony (admittedly not my fav but there's a time for it).
The problem is I don't get to do half the things I want to do because my work makes it a bit difficult to meet new people. That's where you come in. Although I like variety in activities and experiences, I value quality when it comes to people. I don't want to hang out with a different girl every week.
Ok. I think I've said enough.
