What makes you a good catch?
I'm creative and funny. I also open doors, pull out chairs, take coats and clean up good.

What’s your idea of a perfect first date?
Keep it simple. Coffee, cupcakes, nothing big. The focus should be on getting to know my date. What makes it perfect is that we have fun and connect.

Favorite hangout
I like a lot of the coffee shops and restaurants in my neighborhood, but for a date, I'll usually go to Uncommon Ground.

Secret talent

I can do cartwheels.

Describe your ideal match
Artistic, natural, open-minded and aware of what's going on in the world, health conscious and also has a sense of humor.

Name one thing a date could do that would make you go crazy (in a good way).
If she has a little bit of a sci-fi streak, she'll have my attention. I went to a date's apartment once and she had the DVD of Terminator 2 on her coffee table. That relationship had potential.

Name one thing a date could do that would make you go crazy (in a bad way).
Tell me all about your 9/11 conspiracy theories or about how much you love doing drugs. Or order a big plate of ribs. I'm a vegetarian.
