Ask Your #mancrushmonday with Ian Docherty

Chances are, you’re obsessed with the bands July Talk and/or Dwayne Gretzky, because, you know, they’re amazing. That also means that you know and love our #MCM this week, Ian Docherty, who plays a mean guitar in both bands. This guy is a total riot, as well as a total sweetheart, which are two of the reasons we definitely consider him a Man Crush! When he’s not on tour with July Talk, chances are he’s tearing it up with Dwayne Gretzky; so basically, he’s constantly out there creating killer tunes for hordes of adoring fans. Oh, and he also love puns and dad jokes. What’s not to crush on?

What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
Confidence is a huge thing. I mean looks, are probably the initial attraction, but someone who is confident puts me at ease. For me, its way easier to talk to someone who knows themselves.

Who would you want to have make the first move?
Totally depends on the situation. Always nice if I don’t though.

What is your ideal first date?
I’m a fan of informal dates. Something about formal dates puts on pressure and causes awkwardness. I would rather a hang out in the park or something, then do the “first date” later. I feel like I get the real person better that way.

What’s your instant deal breaker?

Who do you go to for dating advice?
Um, probably my buddies Dan or Tyler, but I think I mostly deal with things my own way though.
