Biggest date fear: Not having chemistry with someone
If I never had to clean, I would be very happy.
If I never got to shop, I would be very sad.
What’s the most romantic present you have ever received? A guy once wrote me a beautiful letter expressing his feelings for me. I still have it. He was a creep, but a great writer.
If you could be a fictional character, who would you be? Allie from The Notebook. Noah loves her so much, and to find that and have it last a lifetime is a rare thing.
If you won the lottery, what would you do with your winnings? I would first pay off my student loans, and then buy a house while the market is still good. The rest would go into savings.
Where do you see yourself in five years? I’d love to be married, and hopefully running my own ballet studio.
