To be honest with you, I never had the best gut feeling when it came to boys. In the past I always convinced myself I found the one - when it really had been an average Joe you can find at every corner of our city – and I always gave them more credit than they deserved.

#3: A kind heart:

As simple as that sounds, it sometimes isn’t. Because you can’t fake being caring and kind all the time. That’s where most of the former contestants failed miserably in the past. Being inconsiderate, bitter, someone who likes playing games or you just don’t care about your actions won’t get you anywhere with me.
