He's always up for a fun time, especially in the social realm, and
generally has sparkling ideas of his own for what to do on a date,
as well. He's a happy camper, for the most part, who can play on
many levels, hold you when you're sad, and listen without trying to
fix it. Trustworthy, sane, warm funny, and sexy as hell....what's
not to love?"
