    tall dark and handsome

    first question
    I like guys who are tall dark and handsome

    does dark refer to someone's mysterious or someone who has dark colored skin?


    Second question.
    Should ability be plural? I heard it's uncountable. Is that the same for skill?

    His skill of playing the piano is fantastic
    His skills of playing the piano is fantastic

    #1 In European terms, that he has dark hair and possibly dark eyes. His skin may be darker than usual.

    #2 There is no "should" about it - either can be used.

    nb: His ability to play the piano... / His abilities at the piano...
    His skill at playing the piano.../His skills on the piano....
