What’s a dating or relationship rule that you think is B.S.?
I think playing hard to get is pretty stupid. It’s silly and it gets in the way of actually getting to know somebody. It’s also emblematic of people not being honest about their emotions.
Who was your very first celebrity crush?
That’s a good one. Honestly, I think it was Ashley Tisdale in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.
An excellent choice. Do you believe in astrology?
I want to roll my eyes. I really want to say no. But sometimes my girlfriend will read her horoscope and what it says about me, and I’m like, “How do they know that? I didn’t tell them that.” It’s way too accurate some of the time for me to actually say I don’t believe in it, but I don’t check it every day. I am an Aries though.
Interesting. Have you ever ghosted someone?
Yeah. Not intentionally, if that makes it any better, but I have. I try not to. I’m also just a horrible texter, so I’ll even ghost my friends by accident. I just forget to text them back.
What’s the biggest romantic fail you’ve ever experienced?
When I was in preschool, I was engaged to this girl named Sarah. We lost contact. We never went through with the wedding. I’m still a little broken up about it.
That’s adorable. On that note, what’s the most romantic thing you’ve ever done?
This is probably not the most romantic thing I’ve ever done, but when I was shooting the show in North Carolina, my girlfriend was having a bad day and I sent flowers and a teddy bear through a mail service. It’s not the most incredible thing, but I was proud of myself for making that happen.
What is the worst thing you’ve done on a date?
I went on this date one time in college, and I was having a really bad day. I didn’t want to be a dick and cancel, but I was just so exhausted by the time we got there that I just went to the bathroom and closed my eyes for, like, five minutes. It had nothing to do with the date itself; that was fine! I was just not having a good day. I was like, I’m not feeling like I’m present, and I need to take some time for myself.
Sometimes you just need a mid-date power nap.
What is something that everyone else seems to love but you dislike?
I don’t hate them, but I do think beaches are a little overrated. I think that’s also because I’m afraid of sharks and jellyfish. I don’t want to get stung by them.
And yet you filmed a whole series at a beach!
I know. It’s ironic. I don’t dislike the beach. I just prefer a pool.
