What do you look for in a guy? What would he have to do to get your attention and to keep you interested?

I was out with a guy that was so nervous he was shaking! I felt so bad for him. He was like that the whole time it. He was handsome, but I guess not very confident
Honestly, I fell sexy when I'm comfortable. If you’re not comfortable then that's not sexy to me. A good hair day makes me fell sexy!

No, I’ve never considered it, not really my thing. I don’t have a problem with models who decide to pose nude, but once you have, you can never take it back.
