He won it by answering the "right" questions before I asked him. I knew what I was looking for, and he is it.

By being himself, and us finding that we're compatible. And then meeting in person and finding that we're both attracted to each other. And getting to spend a long time talking, baring our souls to each other. It's when a man who fulfills this:

The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer:

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon...
I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,
“Yes.”

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like the company you keep
in the empty moments.

Silly men. My heart is not a prize to be won. If you just be yourself, are honest with yourself, me and others, are willing to support, encourage and inspire, I shall give it to you.

Ah therein lies the problem.
I accept drinks from everyone, it's their problem if they expect something in return.
But only if it's served straight from the bar person to me.
Last time I was out, Vomit Vernon looked like the type to spike a gals drink.... But alas, the drink went straight from the waitress into my hands, so I drank it.

It's booze?! Ya never refuse Booze!
