SAKS FIFTH AVENUE COLLECTION modern suit jacket, $648, Available at Saks Fifth Avenue at Town Center at Boca Raton; shirt, pants and belt model’s own

The actor who would play you in a movie is: Bradley Cooper.  •  The go-to drink you’ll order at the bar is: A good IPA or gin and tonic. The food you could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner is: Vietnamese cuisine! All of it! It’s amazing.  •  The most romantic thing you ever did for someone was: I’m not really a romance novel kind of guy. For me it’s all the little things and special moments on a daily basis that mean the most.  •  The ideal first date would go like this: First off, nothing stuffy or super formal. I’m into finding cool little spots, being outdoors and on or near the water, and [I] love restaurants that have a relaxed and chill vibe with cool artifacts and such on the walls, and a great happy hour menu. Good conversation is a must. And there has to be laughter, lots of laughter!  •  The most attractive qualities you seek in another person are: Not taking yourself or the world too seriously. I am attracted to someone who believes and lives by the law of attraction, and someone who looks at life with the glass half full.  •  The best advice you’ve ever given or received is: No one in this world cares about your happiness more than you do, so do something about it.

The actor who would play you in a movie is: Gal Gadot. Who better than a powerful Israeli woman?  •  The food you could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner is: Asian, Asian, and sometimes I like to switch it up with… Asian.  •  The most romantic thing you’ve ever done for someone was: A candlelit dinner of his favorite homemade meal.  •  The most attractive qualities you seek in another person are: Confidence, charm, ambition and most importantly, consistency. Also, thoughtful gestures go a long way.  •  The average Saturday includes: Rollerblading along the beach followed by a late lunch and refreshing adult beverages.  •  The best advice you’ve ever given or received is: My dad taught me “no” is never an answer you give or get. I’ll accept the challenge and find a way to get it done.  •  The most adventurous thing you’ve ever done was: I took a spontaneous trip out of the country, on a whim.

The actor who would play you in a movie is: Idris Elba.  •  The go-to drink you’ll order at the bar is: Hennessy.  •  The food you could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner is: Pancakes.  •  The ideal first date would go like this: I’m simple—I just want to get to know that person on the first date, nothing fancy. I need to feel like we could just be friends and go to a football game or a comedy show and just laugh and have a good time.  •  The most attractive qualities you seek in another person are: Humor and independence.  •  The average Saturday starts with: Breakfast with my daughter, Liyah, then take her to dance class. Either get a haircut, pick up clothes from the dry cleaner or get my car detailed; I might even go shopping until her class is over, then we go have some fun, or I drop her off to my mother and have the rest of the day to myself. I go to games, I go to the beach, I work out, I play basketball.  •  The most adventurous thing you’ve ever done was: Skydiving.

E. Matthew ‘Whiz’ Buckley, 49

Former Navy Fighter Pilot, CEO at Top Gun Options and Strike Fighter Financial in Boca Raton, and Author  @whizcheck6_

RALPH LAUREN PURPLE LABEL Anthony classic-fit palm leaf silk jacquard tuxedo jacket, $2,995, SAKS FIFTH AVENUE men’s collection navy silk tie, $95, Available at Saks Fifth Avenue at Town Center at Boca Raton; VERSATTIRE moisture wicking, four-way stretch classic white button down shirt, $98, Available at myversattire.com

The actor who would play you in a movie is: Hugh Jackman.   •  The food you could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner is: Any one of my five food groups is perfect for all meals—steak, chicken, pasta, French fries and pizza. Yes, French fries are one of my food groups.   •  The most romantic thing you’ve ever done for someone was: Flew first class to Paris and stayed in what was an old part of the Palace of Versailles, and I worked out a deal with God for it to snow since she had never seen snow before. Huge snowflakes in the City of Lights.   •  The best advice you’ve ever given or received is: My sister Monica was killed by a drunk driver when she was 19 years old and a freshman at Villanova University. She wasn’t the greatest student academically, but she gave it her all while at the same time being an incredibly giving person by volunteering to help those with disabilities in her spare time. When they gave us her purse, we found a quote from Calvin Coolidge she apparently carried with her for some time: “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
