What do you like best about yourself?

I'm constantly being told how genuine I am. When I spend time with people, I am mentally present and they have my complete attention.

What's your idea of a perfect first date?

I like food and intelligent conversation. I look for people that are open to new experiences. I like going to ethnic BYOBs like Lao Hunan, where I can see how she handles unusual food, environments and people.

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

I took a first date to the Oktoberfest-themed Adler After Dark. She didn't talk much, like beer much, and refused to dance in front of the authentic German polka band, even after I offered to teach her. Who refuses an invitation to dance in such an awesome circumstance on a first date?

Number one dealbreaker

Picky eaters. Cooking is an important way I show affection, and I don't want to be limited in that. Vegans need not apply. I <3 pork.

Which is more important, romantic spark or longterm compatibility?

I don't settle. There has to be both.

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

Eating excellent food. I am a co-founder of X-Marx and I have a lot of social relationships built around loving food and drink.

Secret talent

I surprise a lot of people when I break out old school rap at karaoke.

Ideal match

She should be the girl next door that focuses on relationships and is a loving friend. Smart, comfortable, mature, outgoing, and sassy. Bonus points for being athletic or a Badger.
