I think the first thing I notice is the energy. Don’t get me wrong, I love an attractive face, eyes, nice hands and smile, but it’s the energy connection is what draws me.
Who would you want to have make the first move?
It really doesn’t matter to me. I’m not one to wait around for rules and regulations, if I dig someone, I’ll pursue, if I haven’t been pursued.
What is your ideal first date?
Great food and great conversation, that can happen anywhere. It can start with dinner, a funny or deep movie, and end with great conversation and the mutual feeling between us for it not to end.
What’s your instant deal breaker?
My instant deal breakers are heavy and extreme, like physical violence, but the less extreme deal breaker is someone who shows that they don’t value or respect my opinion and aren’t willing to see many sides to any situation.
Who do you go to for dating advice?
My best friends, whether they’re in a romantic relationship or not. We all balance relationships, navigate our way through different circumstances whether it be romantic, familial or friendship, they’re all places that we can learn from.
