We sat down with Cover Drive lead singer Amanda Reifer to get her dating tips.
What features do you look for in a man?
Amanda: He needs to be confident, funny, musical and someone who likes kids! Physically speaking, I really don’t have a particular type. I’m thinking a hybrid of Pharrell meets meets Thor. I know he’s not entirely real but he’s pretty special.
What would be your ideal date?
Amanda: I love movies. Sounds corny but it is true. Scary movies good for cuddling with your date. Love that!
Do you believe in Splitting the bill on the first date?
Amanda: I’m totally fine with splitting the bill. I’m a girl who likes to eat well, so I’m always happy to contribute.
Biggest misconception about the opposite sex?
Amanda: People assume guys have it easy and don’t have to work up the courage to approach girls. So not true. I live with three guys so I know first hand that this is just not the case.
Give us 1 do and 1 don’t do on a first date
Amanda: Don’t try to rush past getting to know someone before advancing the relationship. Do call him back if you like him. It’s all about becoming friends, so the rule about waiting for him to make the next move does not apply.
