Swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen has a good head on her shoulders. Not only people adore her self-effacing humor and how she is unafraid to speak her mind, she also dishes out the most honest and hilarious dating advice.
Teigen, currently engaged to swoony singer John Legend, shared her wisdom in courtship to GQ while filiming her semi-naked glory for the magazine’s website.
Meet new people in the most normal of places – “The best place to pick someone up? I would definitely say work and at normal things, like the grocery store.” We agree; bars and speed dates can be stressful. Having a conversation with a person you have just met feels more natural in an environment you are very much used to.
Men should know how to cook – “I really think a home-cooked meal by a man is pretty amazing. Have some champagne, take her back, cook something, put me in front of ‘Housewives’ (if it was me) while you cook… Oh my God, that would be the best.” For Teigen, the best way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach… and reality shows.
Do not mince when rejecting someone – “The best exit strategy for when someone’s trying to pick you up and you are not at all excited about it… is RUN.” This advice may be the hardest to take (and follow). It is not easy to reject a person who is introucing his or her self, and we do not like to feel embarrassed when we get rejected. Our general maxim is: “Be nice in everything and everyone.”
