Ask Your #ManCrushMonday with Graham Wright

This week’s #MCM is the ever adorable Graham Wright of a little band called Tokyo Police Club (you may have heard of them). Not only does this guy play no less than 45 instruments (I may be rounding up a bit, but trust me it’s a lot), he’s also a total Simpsons nerd, and absolutely hilarious as a human being. If you don’t believe me, you should give these answers a read. He also prefaced the interview with this disclaimer: TELL YOUR READERS I FEEL WEIRD DOING THIS. So without further ado, check out Graham Wright’s dating advice that he felt very weird giving you.

What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
I feel like I ought to say intellect or sense of humour or some such, but you can’t notice those things straightaway and anyway it would probably still be her hair. So yeah, let’s say hair.

Who would you want to have make the first move?
Well I’m hardly going to do it, am I? What do I look like, a person with wherewithal or confidence? Get real!

What is your ideal first date?
My least favourite part of dating is having to come up with dates. Everyone’s advice (especially on the internet) seems to be some weird scheme where you on a “fun adventure” or, like, a treasure hunt or something, which sounds frankly horrific. Can you imagine if you said yes to a date with some dude and he showed with a treasure hunt planned? Oy. Anyway, a good first date is 2 drinks in a quiet bar (3 if it’s going well) and then you walk around for a while.

What’s your instant deal breaker?
I was recently thinking about nursing a crush on a woman who then said she didn’t like the new Mad Max and that saved me a lot of trouble…

Who do you go to for dating advice?
I have a bunch of friends I go to for advice, but I never listen to ‘em.
