I love a man with a great sense of humor and who is intelligent - a man who has a great smile. I like a man who is very ambitious and driven and who has a good heart and makes me feel safe.
I like a man who is very strong and independent and confident - that is very sexy - but at the same time, he's very kind to people.
He's usually the lead singer in a punk band and plays guitar.
But my serious boyfriends are relatively clean-cut, nice guys. Our nation is built upon a history of immigration, dating back to our first pioneers, the Pilgrims.
The idea of dating people of opposite sex is considered a taboo, in some countries.
Love, love, love -- all the wretched cant of it, masking egotism, lust, masochism, fantasy under a mythology of sentimental postures, a welter of self-induced miseries and joys, blinding and masking the essential personalities in the frozen gestures of courtship, in the kissing and the dating and the desire, the compliments and the quarrels which vivify its barrenness.
Dating is not a great way to "really get to know someone." Why?
Everybody knows the pressure of a first date: Searching for that perfect outfit. Dissecting each detail when it's over to check for mistakes.
Dating can make even the most confident person lose his cool.
