Single in the City: Henry C. Hill Jr.

Henry C. Hill Jr., 51, Procurement and distribution supervisor

Hidden talent: I served six years in the Marines, so I'm pretty good at shooting. I'm good at hitting the target.

Biggest fear: If I stopped working out and started to gain weight. Or if I ever lost my job.

My bad habit: I stay up too late watching SportsCenter when I should be going to bed, because I've got to get up and go to work early.

My guilty pleasure: I'm not supposed to eat this but I do ... chocolate.

You'd never guess: I was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y. I was also a member of ... the Guardian Angels. It's kind of like a group that helps people in New York City. It's kind of like, what's the word I'm looking for? Not renegade but kind of like, they're good guys. They help out people.

I can't live without: Shaving gel. I shave my head bald, and I shave my face completely.

My hero: I was in the Marines, so I look toward like a military person. So I would say any military personnel who has won the Congressional Medal of Honor, or like the Silver Star.

On my bucket list: I have to see Alaska.

Biggest accomplishment: I would have to say that I was able to spend six years in the U. S. Marines. I would have to say that was a tough accomplishment.

When I'm not working: Working out at the gym. Driving my truck and also, you know, sometimes ... volunteering to help others.

Find me here on a Saturday night: If I'm not at home, usually I like to do dinner. One of my favorite places to eat is probably at the Paladar [Latin Kitchen & Rum Bar].

If I had one wish: I know this is going to sound corny, because a lot of people say this, but I think being from a military background ... it's probably just world peace.

Once-in-a-lifetime moment: When I was in the Marines, I did shake hands ... with the vice-president of the United States.

On death row, my last meal would be: Grilled boneless chicken, steamed broccoli and a baked potato.

If I won the Mega Millions, I'd spend it on: Traveling, probably ... building a brand-new home, and probably helping out some people that are less fortunate.

My No. 1 dating rule: I would say just be yourself.

Deal breakers: Somebody who smokes.

The perfect date: If it was summer, I would say take a walk. But I got to consider winter, too. So I would just say a nice dinner and then after dinner going to listen to some music.

I'm a sucker for: You know what look I always like on ladies? A skirt and boots.

Most romantic thing you've ever done: I couldn't cook, so I actually went out and got the food and went out and got the wine and set the table and the candlelight ... and had put a rose by her plate.

What I look for in a significant other: Someone who is attentive, someone who is ... kind, considerate, spontaneous, understanding.

Celebrity dream date: That's easy — Alyssa Milano.

Celebrity look-alike: Jason Taylor. He used to play for the Miami Dolphins. He was on Dancing with the Stars.

Dogs or cats: Dogs.

Beach or mountains: Beach.

Signature dish: Oh this is real simple — peanut butter and jelly!

How I stay healthy: By trying my best to eat right and go to the gym four days a week, doing cardio and weights.

Favorite ... love story: An Officer and a Gentleman. ... book: Fatherhood by Bill Cosby. ... TV show: I would have to say Shark Tank. ... movie: Full Metal Jacket. ... blog: I'm not on any big websites. I'm not on Facebook. I'm not on Facebook! So basically, I just go to Yahoo Sports. ... music: R&B and some of the old-school rap. Definitely old-school rap — not the new stuff. ... restaurant: I really like to go to Bravo. ... app: I don't have a smartphone yet!

What I'm reading: I read Men's Health magazine.

iPod embarrassment: I don't have an iPod. Music that I listen to that I don't want to tell anybody about would probably be ... Karen Carpenter and her brother. She's got a beautiful voice.

I'm so over: How all these sport franchises in Cleveland are always rebuilding.

Dream job: To be one of the Blue Angels.

Dream vacation: Alaska. I want to take that Alaskan cruise.

Best date I've been on: I haven't been on many magical dates, so I would probably have to say, maybe four years ago, when we went on ... that ship for dinner. I think it was the Nautica Queen.

Worst date I've been on: A girl actually threw up on me in the restaurant. Yeah, that was the worst date.
