The gutsiest thing you’ve ever done for love: I texted a guy I had just met telling him that he needed to man up and ask me out on a date. (It didn’t work.)
The most surprising place you’ve met another single: At a dog park
The most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done on a date: So far, I’m in the clear for embarrassing date moments. Hopefully, it stays that way.
You know you’re in love when: I don’t know; I’ve never been in love.
People compliment you most often for: My smile and my eyes
People are surprised to learn: I’ve never played sports, even though I’m 5’11”. I am not athletic in the slightest, and running is my worst enemy. I’ll hike, but I am not running anywhere.
Proudest professional moment: Releasing my first song
If you’re cooking dinner for someone, your playlist includes: Bluesy-rock (Gary Clark Jr., ZZ Ward), soul (St. Paul and the Broken Bones), some type of country (Brothers
Osborne, Jason Aldean, Maren Morris), folk (Lord Huron, Jamestown Revival), or something chill (Petit Biscuit, Lauv, Banks)
Who would you cast to play you in your biopic and why? Mila Kunis, because she’s a badass
About your dating habits
What qualities do you look for in a partner? Someone who loves Jesus, loves his mom, is assertive, funny, kind, trustworthy, intelligent, family-oriented, honest, spontaneous, driven, and patient. (Oh, and if he could build me stuff, too, that would be awesome!)
On the flipside, what are your deal breakers? Don’t be a flake. Smoking will kill me (I have asthma). Do not get angry and lose your temper unnecessarily, don’t curse at me, and never lie to me—I will find out.
Your ideal date would be: Disney World. All of it. (Which would take a lot of days, I know, but that’s why it’s ideal and probably not realistic…)
Best place to go on a first date: A quiet, but nice restaurant where we can both dress up. I need to know if he can clean up when necessary. Also, there need to be people around, in case he ends up being a psycho.
Best place to go for a day date: A lake picnic
Favorite place to take someone to celebrate: It depends on who we’re celebrating.
Favorite place to go for cocktails: The Mockingbird or Old Glory
Favorite brunch spot: Anywhere with margaritas
Favorite dinner date spot: Virago, The Palm, or Taco Bell
