What’s your ideal date in the Washington adult dating scene?

“I’m a huge fan of day dates. You know, the time when we could meet for brunch, check out a new art exhibit at a nearby gallery, or go over the vintage shops along U Street I love a woman who is fashion savvy and from there, see where the day takes you. If the chemistry is non-existent, you can always part ways before dinner time and meet up with friends after. If you hit it off, you can continue having dinner, and just play it by ear from there.”

How do you prep up for a date?

“When I prepare for a date, I keep research to a minimum. Being a know-it-all can be bad enough; being a know-it-all in terms of personal information is just a few steps away from getting a restraining order. I like to get ready while playing good music; nothing really sexy, but just something cool and relaxing. I don’t create a “big date” playlist essentially, but I just play whatever I feel in the moment.”
