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 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: dining (Foreign cinema is one of my favs), amateur live music, independent/foreign films, picnics, hiking, etc...
When it comes to night life, the dive bar doesn't do it for me unless it's a week niqht. I like music, ambiance, and character. 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 and end up working up a sweat at a dance club into the ungodly hours of the morning. (Not much clubbing recently). Other nights, I can go for a quiet Dinner, live Jazz/brass band or a nice milonga.
Although I like variety and lighthearted fun, I value quality when it comes to people. I need meaningful conversations and I don't want to hang out with a different girl every week.
Ok. I think I've said enough.
