I would much prefer to take your dog for a walk, get an ice cream, or something more 1950's. Although I do believe that all blind dates require alcohol, so maybe 1980's? I am interested in getting to know someone and let the dating part happen as it may.
I read more non-fiction or for professional development. I am a science nerd at heart so that is the direction I tend to lean. When I find a good story I'll finish a book in no time. When I don't love a story, it will take me 6 months to finish a book because I get too antsy to sit and read. I grew up in a family of readers but I was always outside begging someone to come out in the sun (gasp!) and play with me.
I can enjoy most music but hate real rap and feel that country is just silly most of the time. I would love to learn to play the guitar but have zero musical talent and haven't invested the time to develop any skill. I am an enthusiastic car singer, which can be unpleasant for my passengers, but it makes me happy.
I enjoy good food but if you want to discuss the nuances of the flavor profile of the sauce, I can't keep up. If you are the guy who sniffs the wine cork, I will leave the bar and never look back. I may take the bottle with me though.
