Enjoy good conversation, drinks with friends, exercise, and other fun pursuits. Can stay in or go out on a Friday night and be equally happy.
Keeping this brief intentionally because it doesn't matter too much, I've found. Basically, you have to find each other somewhat attractive and then just meet and see if there's any chemistry. It's really that simple. Doesn't matter how great of a match someone is on paper.
- Being a good friend.
- Making new friends.
- Being comfortable with myself.
- Irreverence for that which I find boring, stupid, or in poor taste.
- Southern manners.
