I’m a sucker for tattooed bad boy, so you know I’m crushing on RJ! Join me in my crush below.
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
An initial vibe has to be present, the kind you only feel and where nothing is spoken. I also need positive people around me, it’s so important to have when it comes to excelling in life. So, the person I’m spending most of my time with has to be the epitome of a positivity. In a physical sense, I’m a sucker for a great smile & killer eyes on a woman, but hey, what man isn’t?
What is your definition of romance?
Being authentic & genuine in a loving sense with one another, to the extent that it momentarily takes you to a blissful high outside of reality. Couple that with well thought out unexpected gestures, preferably in a scenic or proper setting, will allow you to enjoy a moment and feel what romance truly is.
What is your ideal first date/ what’s the best date you’ve ever been on?
The best date I was ever on didn’t start out as a date but later turned into one. It started as business in the morning and then we had an unplanned lunch. We confirmed it had transitioned into a date at that point as it started to get personal. We then followed that by some relaxation time poolside and ended up talking the rest of the afternoon, to get to know one another.
What’s your instant deal breaker?
From a personality perspective, I need a woman with a sense of humor. Laughing every day is essential and I don’t take myself as serious as you may think when it comes to leisure time.
What’s the strangest thing someone has done to get your attention?
A girl once left her number on my windshield written in lipstick.
If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?
To be smooth and incorporate laughter. My philosophy is there are two fire ways to keep a woman’s attention once you get it. You either have to be able to sing or make her laugh, both is best. The singing is a work in progress for me, I just need coaching and lessons. However, what is solid is my quick wit & smooth way with words. Its my bread & butter when it comes to being Romeo in the romance game.
How do you keep the romance alive in your relationship?
I don’t, it either lives or it dies. Just make sure to stay open and have that constant communication. I think we all can have a tendency to get lazy once we get what we want. Don’t take your relationship for granted. Romance should come natural because that’s what love is. It’s either there or its not and it should never need to be revived.
