Singles File: Tim Ryan

U.S. Representative, 17th District

>> The perfect date: Having really good conversations on a lot of different topics with someone who’s interested and passionate>>
>> Something most people don’t know about me: I love hanging out with my nephews and my niece. Hanging out with them is how I spend most of my free time. I tease them, and they tease me.
>> Biggest turn-on: Passion. I like people who are passionate and who get excited about whatever it is they’re doing in life.

>> Biggest turn-off: Someone who’s not interested in anything.
>> My favorite ... sports team: the Browns ... book: Wherever You Go, There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn. It teaches you how to focus and enjoy your life as it’s unfolding instead of worrying about where you’ve been or where you’re going. ... dessert: I  like a piece of chocolate cake with warm chocolate in the middle and ice cream.

>> In high school I was...

>> My passion: Social change. I’m passionate about relieving suffering in people’s lives.

>> My best feature: I’m pretty laid-back.

>> My car: A silver Chrysler 300.
>> My bad habit: I stay up too late reading books. I get all excited, and before I know it, it’s two in the morning.
>> My first kiss: It was on the Our Lady of Mount Carmel’s playground in Niles, Ohio.

>> Three things I can’t live without: Coffee, yoga and books

>> Blonde or brunette: It depends. It has more to do with your personality, but I probably lean brunette.

>> Going out or staying in: Staying in. I’m out a lot with work, so I enjoy just chilling out at home and maybe doing some cooking.

>> Early, late or right on time: Late. I think it’s a character flaw — I just can’t help it.

>> Beer, wine or martinis: Wine. I like a nice California red.

>> I hate when a date orders: Tofu. It’s never happened to me, but I would hate it if that happens. It’s no fun.

>> If I could marry anyone: I’ve always had a little crush on [singer] Norah Jones.

>> On a first date, I never: Let the woman pick up the tab

Real men do yoga, and I'm glad to see one of our leaders admit it! That's worth a "namaste" right there!
