Being an electrical engineer, do guys throw you a lot of cheesy lines, like “I could use a jump”?
[laughs] Actually, no. When guys find out what I do, I usually get some kind of look like I am a nerd.


What’s your idea of a perfect date?
I don’t need a fancy dinner or all that. A walk on the beach or under the stars would do it. It’s the little things.

Are you a romantic?
No. But I’d like to be.

Turn-ons?
Emotional intelligence. Having an understanding and connection, rather than just the physical. I walk in and know in the first minute or two whether this is going anywhere.

Wow. That’s quick judgment.
It’s just in terms of whether or not this is someone … Okay. I guess it is quick judgment. [laughs]

Do you have a physical type?
Someone who cares about his physique is nice, but I am not too judgmental on that. I enjoy going to the gym and working out, but you wouldn’t know that by looking at me.

I don’t know. Your body looks pretty good.
It’s … decent.

Finish this phrase: When it comes to sex, I …
Want it to mean something. I want it to come naturally. I won’t usually do it just for fun.

The key word there being “usually.”
[laughs] Yes.
