A: I went to eat dinner at the Eiffel tower in Paris. We then went on a night cruise on the Seine river and drank champagne while watching the stars.
Q: What is one of the funniest Valentine’s Day moments that you had?
A: I was in high school and dating this guy. I went over to his apartment; he had just graduated and was going to bible college. I went over and it started off all romantic, he put all these rose petals all over the floor and there were candles lit. He tried to cook, but then the stove lit on fire, and the apartment filled with black smoke. He was running around trying to put out the fire. After putting out the fire, we both laughed, and he ordered a heart-shaped pizza from some delivery service. And then we had to stand outside, while the smoke cleared out of the apartment.
Q: So, have you ever cooked for someone on Valentine’s Day?
A: Yes, I love to cook.
Q: What is the worst Valentine’s Day experience?
A: In the private catholic school that I attended growing up. I was 12 years old and this kid named Chris asked me to be his girlfriend. We were both nerdy, liked to play chess, and talk about national geographic. Well, some kids teased him about me, and on Valentine’s Day, he decided to dump me, in front of our entire private school class. The only time I was dumped. The relationship lasted 3 days (laughs).
Q: Any advice for singles on Valentine’s Day?
A: Go out and treat yourself. You don’t need another person to be happy.
