Cohle uses her talents to give back as well, regularly performing for fundraisers and benefits for various charitable causes. Beautiful, talented and a heart of gold? Can you blame us for crushing on Ms Cole? I think not. Take a read below and get her perspective on romance for yourself.
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
The first thing I notice about someone is their eyes, and then their smile. Not for their eye colour, but if their eyes are kind and match their smile.
Who would you want to have make the first move?
I would want the guy to make the first move. As outgoing as I am, I can get pretty shy when it comes to making the first move.
What is your ideal first date?
Going out somewhere in a chill and relaxed environment (like a live music venue to see a killer band), sharing a plate of nachos and having good conversation. There definitely needs to be good conversation that goes back and forth – I don’t want to feel like I’m the one carrying the entire conversation.
Describe your love life in one word.
Boring! I work, write, and perform so often that I don’t have much time to have a love life right now, so I live vicariously through my friends haha. But I’m definitely willing to make time for a guy I’m interested in.
Describe the best date you’ve ever been on.
It was when I was in Spain. He and I went for drinks and a bite to eat at this really cute restaurant. Afterward, we explored the city and ended up chatting in a park for a long time. We shared stories, laughed and ended up talking for hours before we realized the time.
