I think I would like drinks first, to get to know each other. Also, to confirm that you're not going to murder me. Then maybe a dinner. I'm reserved at first, but when i'm comfortable the fun can begin!
I like to meet shortly after chatting online at a local restaurant. Meet for 30-45 minutes, get to know a little about each other and see if we want to meet again. Quick, easy, laid back and no pressure.
