What is the best part about being single? Life is a journey and an open book. Tomorrow can be the day I meet the love of my life, the day I have the opportunity to travel around the world, the day I can make a life changing decision and just go for it. I can spend quality time with my friends, have fun, and enjoy life to its fullest.
What is the worst part about dating? Not knowing if it's going to work out or the feelings will be reciprocated. But it can be really exciting unwrapping the mystery of the other person and getting to know each other.
Must-have quality or characteristic in a date? She should be confident with herself, supportive, have a good sense of humor, and a romantic. I like a girl who can surprise me and make me laugh.
Brains, beauty, or humor? I would say brains and humor never fade like beauty. However appearance is important. Taking the time to concentrate on your health is an important part of adding longevity to your life.
#1 topic to avoid on a first date? Definitely avoid talking about past relationships on a first date. It makes you appear as though you're not over the relationship and I don't want to be the rebound guy or pay for his mistakes.
What is the best excuse you've used to get out of an unpleasant date on the spot? Luckily, I've never been in that sort of situation. If things don't go as well as I had hoped, I just continue to make the best of the time we have left.
