Describe your love life in just two words.
What’s the longest relationship you’ve had?
The one I'm in now. Going strong for over a year.
Who’s your celebrity crush?
Alciiiiiiiiiiiiiide (Joe Manganiello)
What’s the best pickup line you’ve ever heard?
"If you and I were the last men on earth, I bet we could do it in public." (I promptly walked away, but it's still the best.)
What’s the worst pickup line you’ve ever used?
"You're a lot fatter on TV."
Which bro code law can never, ever be broken?
ALWAYS have your bro's back. Also, never publicly say the word "bro.”
Perfect Hoboken date spot?
Cucharamama on 3rd and Clinton. It's dangerous though, because the atmosphere is really romantic, but the food is out of control, so you eat a lot and then feel too fat to get sexy after.
What’s the recipe for a happy relationship?
Communication (number 1), a gym membership (don't get lazy just because you're in love), having something to work toward as a couple (a vacation, an apartment, a pet, etc), and knowing that, no matter how tempting it may be, the grass is not greener on the other side of the fence.
