What do you like best about yourself?

I think my humor and empathy.

What's your idea of a perfect first date?

A short one. Just going for coffee and talking for awhile. Then if it's going well, walking around the neighborhood and saying goodbye. I'm not a love at first sight kind of guy. Now a perfect hookup would go differently...

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

My co-worker introduced me to his client's co-worker via email. I saw his photo and thought he was okay. We met for lunch in a grassy park near my work. In the middle of our picnic he said, "I guess this isn't working out." I thought to myself, "What the...?!! That was presumptuous."

Number one dealbreaker


Which is more important, romantic spark or longterm compatibility?

Longterm compatibility. Though I don't think you can have that without at least a little spark...unless he's wealthy.

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

Not talk all the time. I'm a guy who hates filling every minute with talking. Also must love going for beer at Hopleaf. My favorite place.

Secret talent

I'm able to recall members of a lot of '80s bands. Especially hard rock/heavy metal.

Ideal match

Someone around my own age who has a decent job. Not someone too into the gay scene. No white parties and vacationing in Key West. I like lean or fit builds. Someone who is kind and not too needy.
