What are you looking for in a mate?

Being able to laugh with someone is unbelievably important to me. I think it's because the people who are the most comfortable with themselves tend to have the best sense of humor.

An ideal mate for me thinks about the future, beyond lunchtime, is passionate, opinionated, challenging, affectionate and real. A love of food, art and music is a must.

At a base, animal-attraction level, I'm a sucker for nice arms, expressive hands and a sexy voice. Oh, and non-creepy eye contact.

What's your relationship style?

When a guy feels the need to talk about other women he's been with. It's not impressive. It's sad and disrespectful. If it's about keeping score, you just got a 15-yard penalty.

I'm a fan of leaving weird things on doorsteps and making insanely elaborate care packages. I think mail is romantic.

What's the best first date location in Columbus?

If the weather is icky, I'd say the Wex. I think the zoo is a good spot for a first date. When animal behavior is the topic of discussion, there's always something to talk about.

What's your dream date?

It would involve something really goofy, like flying kites.
