Daniel Eichholz is living the single life this season of Southern Charm Savannah, which is not always a breeze. We mean, did you see just how much Daniel struggled to woo the ladies during one night out with Lyle Mackenzie and Louis Oswald earlier this season?
And Daniel said that he knows he could have done a little better — OK, a lot — in the flirting department that night. "Well, let’s just say I hope my game improved, 'cause, you know, you can’t always bat .500," Daniel recently told The Daily Dish. "You’ve gotta have your bad days, and you’ve gotta have your good days. And that was definitely not one of my best days that night, that’s for sure."
Well, things are definitely looking up for Daniel and his love life. Sorry, ladies, but this Southern Charm Savannah gent is now off the market. "I am seeing someone. I have a girlfriend. I had a girlfriend almost right after the show stopped [filming]," Daniel revealed. "I started talking to a lovely young lady. And we’ve been dating ever since. And things —wow — things seem to be going pretty seriously, and it’s going really well. And I’m very happy, and I feel very lucky."
But if there's one place to be single, it's definitely Savannah, according to Daniel. "The Savannah dating scene’s fun. You know, there’s lots of people going out. Savannah’s definitely a fun drinking town. It’s great to walk around. There’s tons of bars," Daniel said. "There’s lots of fun things to do, and I think that kind of creates a fun dating atmosphere that you’re running into different people in different bars, and lots of people know each other because it’s also a small town. It’s a good town to date."
In such a close-knit city like Savannah, others might have met the love of their life while they were growing up, kind of like how Lyle and Catherine Cooper have known each other forever and have dated on-and-off for years. "I do feel like Savannah, because of its heritage and so many people grew up so close, that a lot of people kind of tend to gravitate back to each other... because it kind of has a real sense of community," Daniel explained.
Though some might think it might not be the most fun being the only single guy in a group of paired-up friends, Daniel actually said he found it to be a benefit when he was out in the dating scene. "I think being the only single guy on the show was easy, it made my life tons easier," he explained. "If we ever went out, obviously, I had a lot less competition, so that’s always helpful."
It sounds like it certainly did help Daniel.
What's the status of another buzzy Savannah love story, Lyle and Catherine? We might find out just that during Monday night's all-new episode at 10/9c. Check out a sneak peek, below.
