That’s why this lifestyle guru is the perfect candidate to answer the age-old question – what does a woman want?
What do you first notice about a guy’s look?
How he carries himself.
What’s the best thing a guy can do for his skin / hair?
Keep it simple. Nothing wrong with a basic skincare routine or finding a barber you like.
What’s the worst?
What’s the best gift you’ve gotten from a guy?
For Christmas this past year my boyfriend got us tickets to see The Nutcracker. It was such a thoughtful gift because he knew I’d been a ballerina growing up and it would be his first time seeing a ballet. Sharing that experience with him was very special and I smile every time I think about it.
What’s the best gift you’ve given a guy?
For my boyfriend’s birthday I got us a helicopter tour of New York. Throughout our long distance relationship (NY ⟷ LA) we’ve shared a lot of wonderful experiences together and he was just starting to talk about moving to the West Coast. I thought it would be a one of a kind experience for us to share and a way for him to see the city he loved in a new way.
What’s one thing you wish guys understood about women?
You can’t blame everything on our ovaries and a lot of the time we have very different ideas of what “natural makeup” looks like.
How important is…
his fitness level?
his ability to cook?
I think it’s important to find a passion and a balance. A passion because whether it’s your job, hobby or home, seeing someone live what they love can be so contagious and I love that. Finding a balance so you can do what you love and live a comfortable life. Also it doesn’t hurt to do some fitness or have the ability to make a killer grilled cheese.
What’s a guy’s best opening line?
Favorite men’s cologne
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille or YSL L’Homme
Grooming product you’ve stolen from a boyfriend
I’ve been known to borrow hair product when in a bind.
Beauty product you’ve had a boyfriend steal from you?
Best 1st date
Dinner and conversation
Best 1,000th date
Anywhere that requires a suitcase/passport
Facial hair yes or no?
I prefer no facial hair but I can appreciate a well kept beard.
Hair long enough for a man bun: yes or no
As long as it’s not longer than mine, go for it.
Manscaping: yes or no
Nothing wrong with some maintenance.
Running sneakers with jeans: yes or no?
Where are you running to in those jeans?
Call or text?
Text me any time but if you really mean it, you’ll call.
Emojis: yes or no
How do you feel about the man-bun? Have you sported it? Would you?
