What do you like best about yourself?

My sense of humor and that I don't take myself too seriously.

What's your idea of a perfect first date?

Something fun and interactive. A hands-on cooking class, bowling, or mini-golf perhaps.

What's the worst date you've ever had?

One year for my birthday, I was going to dinner and a Dolly Parton concert with my parents. We had an extra ticket, so on a lark, I invited a guy I'd met a couple weeks before at a fundraiser. In the invite I told him it was actually the perfect first date, because in one night he'd learn why I was the way I am. He actually accepted. Oh wait, that turned out to be the best date ever. There are bad matches, but I don't believe in bad dates if you have the right attitude.

Number one dealbreaker


Which is more important, romantic spark or long-term compatibility?

Romantic spark, no question.

Complete this sentence: If you're going to date me, you have to love to...


Secret talent

I give good massages.

Ideal match

I hope to know it when I find it. Someone intelligent, funny and very fit would be a good start.
