What kind of guys do you fall for? What are the three most important attributes that you look for in a man?

Courtney James: I love “rugged” type of men…men who are confident, fun-loving and sexy, without being too into their looks. If a guy takes longer than me to get ready I get annoyed…throw on jeans, a button down (NOT tucked in!!!!) and take me out to do something fun, something different!

What was your most fun date?

Courtney James: My best date ever was a Broadway show…and he reserved an entire balcony section for us…followed by a trip to a hot go-go bar! It was the best of both worlds! He treated me like a princess and then allowed me to let my hair down and have some fun!

How did you meet your last boyfriend?

Courtney James: In a nightclub…I hit on him…lol…but apparently we had met a few months prior at the same nightclub. That night he had hit ion me and I blew him off…but months later I guess he had a different way about him..I was totally smitten!

If I wanted to meet a beautiful woman like you, what would be the best place to meet you? Where do you hang out?

Courtney James: I enjoy going to restaurants with my friends, we often have a drink or two at the bar first, so that’s a great place to meet…but it can definitely have that “meat market vibe.” Another great place is any type of sporting facility. Not the gym, because most girls don’t want to be bothered while they are working out. But rock climbing, skiing, or paintball places are great! There is nothing like having a new teammate, ski buddy, or someone to belay you to make a new connection!

What’s the worst place for a guy to hit on you?

Courtney James: At the gym or food shopping…I don’t know why, but I hate that!

Have you ever dated a guy that you didn’t like when you first met him? If yes, what did he do to become more attractive to you?

Courtney James: I never dated anyone that I didn’t like, but I have dated people who I originally wasn’t attracted to, physically. For those who I became attracted to it was usually because I looked past what they LOOKED like, and got to know who the ARE. Looks are definetly not everything. A great sense of humor, treating me with respect and the ability to have fun goes a long way!

What signals do you give to a man when you want him to make the first move?

Courtney James: Eye contact and a smile…works every time!

What is the one thing you wish all men knew about women and dating?

Courtney James: NEVER pretend to be something you are not. Be who you are and be comfortable in your own skin. Don’t be intimidated by anyone and remember to smile…a lot 🙂
