Read on and get ready to start crushing on our #MCM!
What is your ideal first date/what’s the best date you have ever been on?
It would involve great food on a deck/patio (if it’s warm) or by a fireplace (if it’s cold), and loads of laughter. If you allow me into what tickles you, chances are I want a second date.
What is your instant deal breaker?
No sense of humour
What is the strangest thing someone has done to get your attention?
Strangest thing someone has done to get my attention was a store clerk who found me attractive used my credit card to find out my phone number to take the chance I would be more flattered than mad/creeped out . . . it worked. The FUNNIEST thing someone has done to get my attention was a person fell over a chair in the middle of a hotel lobby watching me walk to the elevator… it got my attention. I laughed for 10 minutes and we exchanged phone numbers
What is your definition of romance?
Paying attention to detail. Hearing the big things is easy, but hearing the small things means the interest is real. There is nothing more romantic than being “known”.
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
Eyes – windows to the soul. Is there joy there? Soulfulness? Grace? I’m in.
