What do you like best about yourself?

I have pretty fun friends, so I conclude from that I must be fun. Or my mother pays them. A little of both?

What's your idea of a perfect first date?

"Surprise" tickets to the Bears/Lions Monday Night Football game at Soldier Field when the weather is 70 degrees. He doesn't have to root for Detroit, but he has to make sure I don't get beaten up.

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

Once got in an argument on a Columbus Day date when I said Columbus didn't really "discover" America. (That's not so awful, right?)

Number one dealbreaker

Stupidity. No sense of humor is #1.5 dealbreaker.

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

Both. That's why I am single.

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

Watch footbal, day drink on occasion, love my friends (most of them, not all).

Secret talent

All of my talents are pretty much out there. Why keep them secret?

Ideal match

Well-read and smart without being condescending. Must be able to make me laugh and vice versa. Likes his job, doesn't hate his mother.
