Singles Out: Jason Nicholas

Jason Nicholas, 32
Meteorologist, NewsChannel 5 
The perfect date: 18 holes of golf, followed by a good dinner, a Cavs game, an episode of The Office and a good bottle of wine

Something most people don’t know about me: I have three alarm clocks and still oversleep.

My cell phone: I’ve converted to the iPhone, and I’m not proud of it. I don’t think I’m an iPhone person. I’m trying my best not to become an iPhone person though it does have a lot of cool applications.

Biggest turn-on: Brains, intelligence

Biggest turnoff: Being really late and people who cancel

I own too many: Ties

My favorite … place in Cleveland: Lolita in Tremont. It has great food, great atmosphere, and it’s in a fun neighborhood. … sports team: Cavaliers … book: Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballsvacation destination: Las Vegas and Karpathos, Greece — that’s where my family’s from … dessert: Former banana split at Blue Point Grille … blog: The Power of 5 weather blog

Facebook: yes or no? I am on Facebook. It seems like everyone is on it, and it’s a good way to reconnect with people you thought you’d never talk to, or care to talk to, again.

My usual hangout: Aside from the weather office at Channel 5, the Map Room. It’s laid-back, friendly, and you never know who you might run into.

In high school I was … really skinny and had a flat top.

My passion: Weather and golf

My best feature: My smile

My bad habit: Fantasy sports. I usually have two or three football leagues and sometimes a baseball and basketball league, too. It takes a lot of time; it’s frustrating, but fun.

My first kiss: Was wet, awkward and in my parents’ basement.

My guilty pleasure: Watching old sports games on ESPN Classic and then watching six consecutive Office episodes afterwards

How my ex would describe me: See my answer to the favorite book question.

Blondes or brunettes: Both

Going out or staying in: A mix of both. Sometimes it’s great to stay in and have a quiet night, and sometimes you just want to have a little action.

Early, late or right on time: Right on time: See things that turn me off.

Dogs or cats: Dogs definitely. They’re loyal, they’re smart, and they come to you when you say, “Come here.” Cats have their own agenda — and I’m allergic to them.

My longest relationship: Two years

Beer, wine or martinis: Depends on the night, but I would say beer while watching a game and wine with dinner.

Roses or chocolates: Chocolate

My No. 1 dating rule: Rules stink. No rules, just fun.

My deal-breaker: Lying, smoking and having more than two cats

I hate when a date orders … just a salad.

Worst pick up line: It was said to me at a bar: “I’ve never been rejected.” I responded: “Until now, you mean.”

If I could marry anyone: Elin Nordegren, Tiger’s ex-wife. Do I even have to give a reason?

On a first date you never… expect anything.

Best place to meet someone: Gas station

Most unusual place I’ve met someone: Sitting next to someone in an airplane. You’ve got to love Southwest! You get to choose where you want to sit.

My take on Cleveland’s single scene: I think we’re very lucky in Cleveland. There’s a good mix of different kinds of people. Most are smart, down-to-earth, friendly and close to their families. It gets an unfair, bad reputation.
