Where he's from: South Bend, Indiana
Describe an ideal date in Washington.
"I'm a fan of day dates. Meet for brunch, check out a new exhibit at a gallery, peruse the vintage shops on U Street — I love a woman with a keen sense of style — and from there, see where the day leads you. If the chemistry isn't there, you both part ways around dinner with time to link up with friends later. If it is there, head off to dinner and play the rest of the night by ear."
How do you prepare for a date? A little Facebook stalking, a stiff drink ...
"I keep the research to a minimum. Being a know-it-all is bad enough — being a know-it-all when it comes to personal info on a date is the precursor to a restraining order. I like to prep with good music. Nothing overly sexy, but something relaxing and cool. I don't have a 'big date' playlist per se, just whatever I've been vibing to recently."
