Single in the City 2015: Harrison Hove

Staff Writer
Columbus Monthly

Age: 30

Profession: Meteorologist and news anchor, NBC 4

Biggest accomplishment: Warning Ohioans about one of the deadliest tornados in recent decades as it happened. This was a day when what I do really can save a life. My forecasting during this event was awarded with an Emmy.

Dream job: It would be an opportunity that pays me to make a difference. The responsibilities are fuzzy.

When I'm not working, I'm … two things: I'm with my friends, decompressing and being social. Just having a great time and laughing. I'm also in grad school for my master's in journalism.

Your perfect mate, in five words or less: Honest, compassionate, intellectual, adventurous

Deal breakers: Good hygiene is the nicest way to say it. Another would be someone who's selfish. I will invest in someone, and I want someone [who will do the same].

Your bad habit? I have a messy room.

No. 1 dating rule? One of the things I am particular about, on a first date I like us to split the check. A lot of times you go on a first date and you never go out again. For me, it defuses the pressure.

Most people don't know … if I was not working in local news, I would be a school teacher because I love kids.

Dream superpower: The ability to have all the answers

On your bucket list: Travel to all seven continents. I've been to five, [all but] Africa and South America.

Dream vacation? My favorite country in the world is New Zealand. I've been twice. Long term, I would love to have a home there.

Dogs or cats? Dogs

Most romantic thing you've ever done? One example doesn't shine, but I would love a man who makes a private, homemade dinner that takes thought and care, instead of going out. It's the thoughtfulness that I love.

If I won the lottery … I would make sure my family's taken care of, make a difference in my community and invest.

On the weekend, you'll find me … working, on NBC 4, in the morning and enjoying dinner with friends in the Short North in the evening.

I own too many … ties.

My guilty pleasure is … Little Caesars pizza.

If you were stranded on a desert island and you could bring one … Book?A photo book of pictures of the world Food?Burger Movie?"Forrest Gump" Album? A compilation of the greatest hits of all time App? Facebook
