What makes a great first date? “Good conversation and good vibes between two people make a great first date. This can happen anywhere, but the best places are in a place that you can hear each other, eat and drink. For me, I don’t need an activity, just someone that doesn’t feel like they’re interviewing me or I’m interviewing them. The conversation needs to flow, if it’s forced then my drink becomes my focus. Sometimes activities are used to break the ice, but I need someone who can hold their own without the crutch of golf, bowling or painting. We can do those things after we have established we actually want to hang out and enjoy it just being us.”
What do you look for in potential suitors? “My friends will say I’m picky. I just want someone that genuinely makes me smile, challenges me intellectually, supports me and when they’re gone I miss their presence. A potential suitor with all I have going on has to make me not want to work on the weekends and when I don’t I still feel happy and fulfilled. I pour a lot into others’ cups to support their events, businesses and blogs. I just want someone to do that for me and I for them. Being motivated and ambitious are important to me. I’m busy and they need to be busy too so they don’t feel neglected and then we both have to prioritize the relationship and quality non-working time. My suitor needs to be able to meet me in the stage of life I’m in all bases of mentally, financially and spiritually. I want an equal partner brining as much as I am to the table. Did I say attractive? Physical attraction is extremely important. Also, they can’t take themselves too seriously. We’re dressing up for Halloween, music festivals, bar crawls and anything else with a theme!”
What’s the worst pick up line you’ve ever heard? “I’ve heard so many recently. I can’t remember the last time I heard a good one. Most of my “pick-up” lines come via Instagram or Facebook DMs and I’m more creeped out than anything. The shooting your shot culture isn’t shoot your best shot, rather just take the whole rack and shoot til you land one. I expect a little more thought and care upon being approached. Even if it’s in the moment. ”
Micky Jones – Writer, Speaker, Activist, and Facilitator
“I believe in throwing parties as a key revolutionary strategy. I am a movement chaplain, the Justice Doula, writer, facilitator, pilgrimage guide, faith-rooted activist & organizer, and speaker. I love bringing people together to explore the intersections of our lives, awaken empathy and fight oppression. I am obsessed with creating brave spaces, pursuing shalom, and I spend too much time on social media reading articles and making up hashtags. I long to lead in a way that would make Ella Baker and Fannie Lou Hamer proud. I believe with all that I am that my liberation is tied up in yours – so let’s get free together.”

What makes a great first date? “It’s a great first date if we have a lot to talk about, feel a spark of attraction and leave the date wanting more.”
What do you look for in potential suitors? “Passion (what makes you excited about life) and compassion (how do you treat others) and a desire to keep growing and learning as a person. A gorgeous smile doesn’t hurt and will probably make me smile back!”
What’s the worst pick up line you’ve ever heard? “Honestly, “Hey beautiful!” Just because it’s overused. Just come tell me you want to talk to me and let’s see what happens.”

What makes a great first date? “The location sets the tone of the first date. A man taking a woman out for the very first time should have some insight on what she likes eating. How engaging the conversation is during the first date will determine the level of chemistry. Being on an unmemorable boring date is a complete waste of time.”
What do you look for in potential suitors? “Compatibility, self-confidence well-groomed and a sense of humor”
What’s the worst pick up line you’ve ever heard? “A guy once complimented me on my smile and then asked if my teeth were real. After I replied that they were he asked if he could touch them.”
