According To Cleveland Magazine, I’m One Of Cleveland’s 10 Most Eligible Bachelors

27 01 2010

Hard to fathom right? @rickonia be damned, i’m gonna say another backhanded Cleveland insult (according to him)….. If this was (almost) any other city, it wouldn’t be so hard for me to find a good woman on my level.  My attempts here are futile and successes are few and far between… When I finally get to here:

You know what that spells.... Left to right bitches!

and start working for these guys (fingers crossed):

Here I come!

I have a feeling that my general mood will be substantially elevated and I won’t have to spend my days and night being consoled/agreed with by Adam King (and to think he used to LIVE in LA and then came BACK!  Crazy, I know).

So anyways, here’s me in this month’s issue of Cleveland Magazine.  Feel free to comment, or even better…. click here and send me an e-mail to my nifty address they gave me, lol….  Like I said, Cleveland Magazine seems to think I deserve this.  I’ve been asked in previous years and turned it down, only to be snatched up by Easter Seals and do pretty much the same thing.  Those Crush parties were a letdown 2 yrs in a row :(… but what do you expect right?  The only reason I even said yes was because I thought I would be giving Liquid (my former employer) some great publicity.  That decision became regrettable abt a month and a half later when they fired me. Good thing CleMag called to do a fact check and I was able to tell them that I was a free agent again!  Kudos to my boy Phil Dupuis from the Lake Erie Monsters holdin it down on the cover.  I would hope you would pick one of these up, but in case you’re that lazy, here’s the transcript.  Feel free to comment.  Also, on the website notice that they save the best for last!

For the record, I NEVER drink coffee (its empty).... AND..... I would usually also have picked up some sort of pornographic or semi-nude magazine by this point as well.

Marcus Sims, 28
Owner, Luxe Lifestyles

The perfect date: My perfect date would probably be doing something active — get outside and just running around depending on the season. Maybe snowboarding in the winter, maybe going for a bike ride in the summertime.Something most people don’t know about me: I was a drama minor in college.

My cell phone: Is filled with too many numbers.

Biggest turn-on: Intelligence and class, wrapped in a proportioned physical package

Biggest turnoff: A woman who can’t laugh at herself

I own too many: Promotional T-shirts

My favorite … place in Cleveland: Probably my mom’s kitchen table. My mom’s a great cook. … sports team: Cleveland Cavaliers, and I’m not the bandwagon kind. I’ve been a Cavs fan since I was 8 years old. … book: From Good to Great by Jim Collins … vacation destination: Definitely Los Angeles … dessert: Probably cheesecake. I just really like cheesecake in all of its forms. … blog:, a music blog.

Facebook: yes or no? For my job, I have to stay connected via social media, and even really in my personal life, you know, it’s good to keep in touch.

My usual hangout: At Liquid. Even before I worked there, that’s where I pretty much used to spend all my time.

In high school I was… a clique-buster. I’m a real affable kind of guy, and I was always friends with every crew. I played sports, student government, I hosted the morning announcements on TV. I would just make friends with everybody.

My passion: Seeking knowledge. Always trying to do good by people because it always comes back to you

My best feature: My ability to make people feel comfortable

My bad habit: Sometimes I’m a little stubborn. Sometimes I get overly passionate, and people mistake it for being overly angry. Everything I do is about passion.

My first kiss: I don’t remember, but I know it happened when I was, like, 7.

My guilty pleasure: Probably consuming too much Taco Bell

How my ex would describe me: Passionate, fun loving, ambitious

Blondes or brunettes: Brunettes. Blondes have had there time in the sun; it’s time for somebody else to be that stereotype.

Going out or staying in: Definitely going out

Early, late, or right on time: Right on time because the time when I’m supposed to be there, that’s what time I get there.

Dogs or cats: I would have to say no to both.

My longest relationship: A year and a half

Beer, wine or martinis: Wine, because I just can’t drink straight liquor

Roses or chocolates: Chocolates

My No. 1 dating rule: Always be honest.

My deal-breaker: Closed-mindedness

I hate when a date orders: I really don’t hate when a date orders anything.

Worst pickup line: “Are you tired? Because you’ve been running through my mind all day.”

If I could marry anyone: Halle Berry. She’s pretty hot.

On a first date I never … wear a white shirt.

Best place to meet someone: Wherever you meet somebody is the best place to meet them.

Most unusual place I’ve met someone: I don’t think I really have one. I’ve never met someone at a funeral or something crazy like that.

My take on Cleveland’s single scene: I think that too much power rests with men. I mean, I know it’s the Midwest, and we have very conservative dating value, but it’s time for women to step up to the plate. If you have a good job and you’re a confident assertive woman, don’t be afraid to take charge from time to time.

Last but not least, here’s a great song to fade out to.  Seems appropriate considering the last couple of days:
