"I’ve heard a lot of beautiful women say they get tired of constantly having to deal with the advances of men? How do you feel about this?
I think it’s flattering when a man gives you a compliment, as long as it’s respectful. I’m old-fashioned when it comes to that. I appreciate compliments and never take them for granted.
When you’re not interested in someone, do you prefer the direct, “get lost” approach or the “act nice even though you don’t like them” approach.
I think being nice is always the best way. You never know if a good friendship can develop and you missed out by giving them the “get lost” approach. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and courtesy…unless they’re vulgar, then I just ignore them and walk away.
What’s the easiest way for someone to tell that you’re attracted to a guy?
My eyes. The eyes never lie.
What exactly do your eyes do when you see someone you like?
If you spend enough time looking at a person’s eyes you can tell where they’re coming from, what they feel. It’s one of those: it takes one to know one things.
What do you consider your three strongest qualities?
I’m extremely organized, I have a big heart, and I’m a clean freak—which can be a bit overwhelming sometimes.
What are a man’s three most important qualities?
I strongly believe that the initial attraction determines whether or not you talk to someone and certain qualities determine whether or not you remain interested. For me those are 1) having strong family values, 2) being a good son, and 3) being respectful.
What would you most like to be remembered for once you’re an old lady sitting on a rocking chair?
All we have left of yesterday are memories. I would like those who know me to look back and reminisce on the moments of laughter we shared and have great stories to tell my grandchildren."
