Name: Matthew Wixted

Age: 24

Gig: Photographer and Editor

What do you look for in a significant other?
"A kind, down-to-earth, carefree, but opinionated girl who loves to laugh — who can let go and isn't afraid to try new things. A girl that is intelligent enough to know what is really going on beyond gossip. And that also loves animals, good company, and is interested in traveling and saving the world together."

In your opinion, what makes the perfect first date?
"The chemistry. Sometimes it takes a little warming up, so doing something active where we can enjoy ourselves, and not take it too seriously. A nice day hike, beautiful view, a picnic lunch, a bottle of wine, and a great conversation seems just about perfect to me."

List three words that describe your personality.
"Compassionate, humorous, and creative."

Do you have any dating horror stories?
"I was once set up on a blind date where the girl spoke to me in a creepy baby voice almost the entire time. Needless to say, I was ready to go home for my bottle and nap."

Name: Jace Levine

Age: 29

Gig: Director of Business Development, MOpro.com

What do you look for in a significant other?
"I am pretty sure that my friends and family will agree that what I look for and what I get are two completely different things. I definitely want someone who can challenge me and bring her own personality, creativity, and ideas to the table. I guess I'm also looking for someone who has an open mind, and can handle most situations. It would be nice to find someone who is equally as comfortable at a black-tie event as at Burning Man."

In your opinion, what makes the perfect first date?
"I don't think there is a science to making the perfect first date, and if there is one, I haven't figured it out. If I can hang out with someone for a few hours and learn about them, laugh a little, and feel like I made a new friend — I would say that is a successful first date."

What are your fave L.A. hangouts?
"I live in downtown and really love all of the restaurants there, but unfortunately most of my friends refuse to go either East of Lincoln or East of Gower. Bottega Louie is a neighborhood staple for me — the food is incredible and the atmosphere is always vibrant. Taylor's Steakhouse in Koreatown is also a favorite."

Age: 31

Gig: Principal at CEO (Creative Edge Offices), Commercial Real Estate Investor, Entrepreneur, Producer

What do you look for in a significant other?
"Brightness. We’re talking bright in spirit, smile, eyes, soul, and mind. Someone who just 'gets it' and appreciates life. You know who you are! Oh, and they have to pretend to, or actually laugh at my constant barrages of humor. That being said, they probably shouldn’t have an aversion to corny jokes."

List three words that describe your personality.
"Charismatic, passionate, and wittier than your average bear."

What are your fave L.A. hangouts?
"Nagao in Brentwood is probably my all time fave when it comes to a no frills, yet awesome sushi staple. I love to be physically active, and Rockreation Climbing Gym is one my favorites."

Gig: In-House Counsel, Getty Images

What do you look for in a significant other?
"Intelligence, empathy, kindness, a unique sensibility, and an adventurous spirit."

Do you have any dating horror stories?
"Not a horror story per se, but I went on a blind date, and I knew the girl had 'recently' broken up with her boyfriend, but knew no other details. We were on the date and started discussing her living situation – it was soon revealed that the girl had lived with her ex-boyfriend for several years, and had only moved out of their apartment the weekend before!"

List three words that describe your personality.
"Enthusiastic, considerate, and intuitive."

In your opinion, what makes the perfect first date?
"Fun connections, good conversation, a light-heartedness — and of course, a goodnight fist bump."

Name: John Short

Age: 31

Gig: Vice President, Hyde Park International

What do you look for in a significant other?
"A good sense of humor is always important, and she shouldn't take herself too seriously. She should be fun to go out with, and also be good company on a lazy Sunday. As far as looks go, I love a great smile and good skin. The less makeup, the better."

What are your fave L.A. hangouts?
"My backyard during the summer -— I love my pool days with friends. My neighborhood sushi spot, Yoshi's Sushi."

List three words that describe your personality.
"Texas (yes, it's an adjective), easygoing, and ambitious."

In your opinion, what makes the perfect first date?
"Dinner at a quiet restaurant with a warm and romantic atmosphere. We imbibe on a few glasses of good wine (but not too many). The night ends with an amazing kiss, and both of us looking forward to seeing each other again."

Name: Erik Vogelzang

Age: 19

Gig: USC Business Student

What do you look for in a significant other?
"Someone that can hang with the guys. I like someone who's serious (when she needs to be), and always ready to have a good time. She doesn't have to cook, but it's always a plus. I like motivation in women, and a great smile. I'm also a sucker for beautiful eyes."

Do you have any dating horror stories?
"I haven't actually been on too many horrifying dates. In college, you don't really go on dates that much — unless you really like the girl. I guess I just haven't found her yet."

List three words that describe your personality.
"Fun, exciting, and outgoing. I am a people person, and I always try to be there for my friends as much as I can."

In your opinion, what makes the perfect first date?
"I don't set my expectations that high. I just want to have a good time, and hopefully that first date leads to a second. I think that's what makes a date perfect — if it leaves you wanting more."
