Any funny dating stories?

I was on a date once and my car died at a red light. Very embarrassing.

What's the best compliment you've ever received?

I get "You have a nice smile" a lot, so I think that's a winner.

What are you looking for in a mate?

I look for someone who has the same drives, goals and aims as me. Someone who aligns themselves on the path to success. Someone who can hold a conversation and is very outgoing.

Someone who is God-fearing, silly and has a great sense of humor that can actually make me laugh. Someone who loves music. Someone who isn't conceited, but they know they turn heads when they walk in a room.

Any pet peeves when it comes to people trying to get a date with you?

Someone who doesn't appreciate what they have, even if it's a little. And a heavy smoker.

Worst pickup line you've ever gotten?

"Are you City from Power 107.5?! You're not? Oh, well you're cute. What's your name? You single?"

Where's the best first date location in Columbus?

I love going to the Arena Grand movie theater. The Arena District has a lot of great options for the dinner after the movie, as well. I also like the lights and the view of Nationwide Arena right in the heart of Downtown.

What's it like dating in the digital era?

It's kinda like people don't know how to hold a conversation anymore. Everything is over text, Facebook or Twitter. Speaking of Facebook, I think it's the devil! But I have used it to check out some people. Come on, who hasn't?

What do you think about the Columbus dating scene?

It is very small. Seems like everybody knows everybody. But the good thing about this city is more and more young people are moving here, which allows you to meet people from all over, which makes it a bit easier to find the person of your dreams.
