What are you looking for in a boyfriend?: They have to able to take care of me-I like that perfect gentleman kind of person, but a perfect gentleman with a twist. I love a hilarious person, so you have to be funny and a gentleman at the same time, like always open my doors, but slam it in my face sometimes. I just like to have the best of two worlds. Not too clingy, but just enough that I know that you care. Definitely have to have to be fine! (laughs) and open-minded and they have to be supportive in what I do, especially in the arts.
