What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest:

Their gaze – if they are truly interested in you, they will look into you, not at you, and if you are truly interested in them, you will feel it.


What is your definition of romance:

Romance is a swirling dance of attraction, admiration, intrigue, desire and a feeling of excitement of being special to someone. Romance is not love, but love may include romance.


What is your ideal first date/what’s the best date you’ve ever been on?

On dates, I’ve been to fancy restaurants and I’ve hung out in seedy bars, both are fun when you can experience a genuine connection through meaningful conversation, laugh and find humour in the same things, be relaxed around each other and feel like you are operating on the same wavelength –  then the time just flies and it doesn’t feel like a formal date.


What’s your instant deal breaker?

When someone talks too much about him/herself or doesn’t demonstrate sincere interest in learning about the other person. What’s the point?


If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?

Don’t take advice – it’s your life, live your experiences, learn from them and make your own advice.
