Biggest date fear: Silence
I love it when my date is invested, opens the door, asks questions, looks me in the eyes, compliments me, smiles, laughs, holds my hand.
I hate it when my date looks at his phone the whole time, is absent mentally, is too handsy (at first), eats less than me, is rude to other people.
Who is your favorite actor? Rachel McAdams – she’s brilliant while being adorable at the same time. Perfect balance.
What’s the most romantic present you have ever received? A handpicked flower from his walk to pick me up. Something about a man twirling a flower in his fingers…so sweet and thoughtful.
What does being married mean to you? Two souls growing independently and intertwined at the same time. Unconditional love, trust, companionship and compassion.
