Personal Quote:

I would like someone that really gets life and has had a broken heart - that's important because that adds character. They don't have to have a broken heart now, but just someone that's had one in the past. Someone that's funny and embraces life, because it's short and it's important and I think we really have to enjoy ourselves. I'm not looking. I think he'll find me. See more »
