    Kevin Richberg, 32, is on a 30-day 30-city tour to find 30 dates and, hopefully, his soul mate.

    "The proposal itself is designed to weed out anyone that might be 'dangerous,' but no I won’t be doing any sort of check on anyone," said Richberg, a newly minted MIT grad and world traveler. "And fortunately I’ve received plenty of great proposals from what seem like perfectly nice people. Probably the most romantic so far is a man from Oklahoma City who wants to cook me a six-course meal, something that would not normally seem all that special, except he proposes to do it around the entire city like a culinary tour of OKC. I’m not sure how he would even pull it off, but the way he describes it is very genuine."

    He's received 350 offers (or what he calls proposals) so far, which sounds like a lot of narrowing down is in order, given he's beginning this thing on or around Oct. 1. Also, many of the invitations came via Gay.com and Manhunt.net. Ahem. Though he insists on this ground rule: No sex. A goodnight kiss is as far as it's going.

    Here's how he describes himself:

    Hey guys… my name is Kevin, I’m 32 years old, born and raised in a very small town in the center of New York State. The ultimate passion in my life is the adventure, thrill, and experience of traveling.

    Luckily I’ve had the opportunity to travel the globe exploring the world’s major cities, absorbing unique cultural moments, hiking through beautiful remote areas, and occasionally getting into a little trouble. I just finished my graduate degree in marine biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, ten years to the day after graduating undergrad from a tiny science and technology college in Southern California. In between educational endeavors my occupations have been DNA chemist, director of residential assistants, drug testing specimen collection agent, bartender, medical researcher, and Captain Nemo.

    I’m the product of wonderfully loving family (with one lovely sister and a very artistic brother), raised on small town values and forged into adulthood via the Los Angeles big city crucible. I’ve definitely made my share of mistakes over the course of my life, but never the same one twice (thankfully).

    Currently I’m deciding where to plant my feet for the next stage of my life while doing some very exciting project-oriented travel writing. I’m not shy, don’t believe in a closed mind, can’t give up when my heart is set, and haven’t yet experienced love at first sight.

    What I definitely am… is a hopeful romantic! At some point I’m going to find the partner to share my life with and have a family. This journey is a chance for me to put myself out there and seriously give the traditional “date” the fair shake it deserves.

    I could go on about favorite movies, near death experiences, embarrassing law enforcement trauma, earthquake survival tips, or oenophilic banter… but then we wouldn’t have as much to talk about on our date!




    If anyone's interested, go here to propose a date with Kevin. I dare say there are some RJ members who would catch his fancy. If you're having a hard time coming up with ideas, Kevin offers some helpful tips in the clip below. Good luck.

    He´s cute, but something tells me he´d be exhausting.


    I also wonder when the book/blog is coming out...

    I am immediately put off by people who need this level of attention and affirmation, and who act as though dating plans geared towards audience reactions (the bachelor, etc) are anything but publicity devices.

    Sounds pretty awesome if he can afford the time and the money it requires.....

    ......and the OKC date... I'd willing to bet I KNOW who that date is!
    LOL, just like a friend of mine who would do that. I'll have to check and see.

    Sounds like fun, too bad he doesn't keep a journal.....

    In his video, he appeared to say that he's trying to be open to all kinds of guys. So I think a big part of this is about the experience and not about actually finding someone for him.

    I definite think he's one of those overachieving overachievers, which could definitely be tiring to keep up with if he lets this define him. And this experience could just be one more thing on his life checklist.

    I do wonder if he will blog (or vlog) while on the road. It would be physically, if not emotionally, exhausting and draining if he did so. I do think he will at least have some kind of an update at the end of it all.

    He is cute. I like my go getting types but is he taking the dating game international? And 1 date a day? That would definitely be exhausting. That's not enough time to get to know someone.

    I wonder how much of this is finding a soulmate vs trying to publicity.

    The guys that do end up going on a date with him better make video responses! I would love to see that
