What’s the most romantic thing you’ve ever done for someone?

I think it’s really important to make your partner feel adored and appreciated on the regular. So for me it’s not one amazing gesture, but constant ones. Letting them know you appreciate them. Making them a protein shake after the gym, or holding their hand across the dinner table, or planning a surprise fun date, or making them laugh, or having their favorite bottle of wine ready after a long day.

Tell us about the worst date you’ve ever been on. 
A guy asked me out to dinner. I said I would meet him at the restaurant. He was so nervous that he brought a guy friend with him, which was extremely awkward. We had fun, but I never went out with him again.

A private jet is picking you and your date up—where is it taking you?
We told the pilot to surprise us!

What personality traits do you look for on a first date? 
Passion, wit and humor.

Tell us about the worst date you’ve ever been on.
I don’t know that I’ve ever had a ‘bad’ date, because I enjoy meeting new people.

A private jet is picking you and your date up—where is it taking you? 
As long as we both haven’t been…the Croatian Islands. Dry air (goodbye South Florida humidity), turquoise water (like out of a Microsoft preloaded desktop background) and beautiful scenery (like no where else!).
