Right now I am on this kick in which I go on a mini-vacation to a new city I have never been to every few months and just check it out. Usually I meet some people at a bar the first night and they are willing to show me around. It has been fun so far. I have been to OKC, Austin, Nashville, and Dallas this year.
I make plans, apparently that is not too common in LA but if I am asked to do something and I say "Let me check my schedule" I check then actually get back to the person, say yes, then follow through. So I would prefer you to be the same.
