Jonathan Soond, 23
Operations Manager at Good Greens
The perfect date: Going out for a decent meal and maybe some sort of drink afterwards
Something most people don't know about me: I like to sing in the car a lot. I don't ever do that when anyone else is around.
My passion: I really like cooking. I like to do yoga also, and traveling is nice.
Biggest turn-on: Someone that is funny and confident in themselves, that's what's really important.
Biggest turnoff: Someone who is boring and rude
I own too many: Undershirts
My favorite ... place in Cleveland: I like to run around Shaker Lake; it's nice and quiet. As for the city, I think going downtown is cool. East Fourth is a fun place. Ohio City is a great place too. ... book: My favorite book that I read most recently was Freakonomics. ... musician/band: Weezer and the Rolling Stones. ... Sports team: Anything Cleveland. You have to love Cleveland teams if you're from Cleveland. ... TV show: Homeland, it's on Showtime, it's a CIA thriller show. It's intense. It's one of those shows that makes you think. ... vacation destination: I go to Tampa with my family every year, and that's a good time. I really want to go to Thailand, I think it'd be an awesome experience with the beaches and the forests. I'd like to see some Buddhist temples. ... dessert: Cannolis from Corbo's. ... blog: Nerdfitness. It's about this guy who quit his job and started this blog, and he does some pretty awesome stuff. It's not just fitness. I learned so many cool things on that website.
My usual hangout: I like to do stuff, whatever it is, going to Ohio City or the East Side. I just don't like being stagnant.
In high school I was ... probably the least cool person you could imagine.
And now I'm ... pretty awesome.
My best feature: Maybe my face. It's pretty good.
My bad habit: Procrastinating every once in awhile, but recently I have made significant breakthroughs in my procrastinating.
My first kiss: It was behind the trees in my backyard when I was a kid. I thought it was awesome, but it was probably pretty weird and awkward.
My guilty pleasure: I like to watch movies a lot. That could consume an entire weekend if I wanted it to.
How would your ex describe you: I've actually never had a girlfriend.
Going out or staying in: Going out definitely
Early, late, or right on time: I'm usually early or on time. I can't stand being late.
Dogs or cats: Dogs, specifically Akitas. I have one named Cocoa.
Dancing ... yes or no? Yes. I would like to learn how to dance, legitimately. I think it would be really cool to learn the tango or something. That's a skill I'd like to acquire before I die.
Twitter ... yes or no? Not so much
Beer, wine, or martinis: Can I just say rum? I pretty much just drink rum and ginger ale, and that's basically it.
Roses or chocolates: Chocolate roses
My No. 1 dating rule: Try to have as much fun as you can. I mean, why not? You only live once.
My deal-breaker: Gross hands are kind of a turnoff. Like if someone has unkempt nails and stuff. Or someone who is not really confident.
I hate when a date ... has horrible table manners.
Worst pickup line: "Is that a mirror in your pocket, because I can see myself in your pants."
If I could date anyone: Any one of the women who is in Victoria's Secret
On a first date I never ... order lamb or tuna fish.
Best place to meet someone: Anywhere but a bar if you want to meet someone for a legitimate relationship
Most unusual place I've met someone: I met someone on an airplane once. I don't know if that's unusual, but I wasn't expecting it.
My take on Cleveland's single scene: It seems like there's a lot of cool people single in Cleveland who are out there just trying to enjoy their lives. So it's a good scene.
What I find sexy about myself: I'm pretty much just awesome, I guess. I think I'm kind of funny; I can make people laugh.
Why I think I'm single: I just never really was looking for or met the right person.
