–Preston, 27

6. “Her love for hot dogs. Our first get-together was at a hot dog festival. When we first started talking, it was about music and we had really similar music tastes because it was right after Lolla.

–Rob, 30

12. “She is gorgeous. She has a strikingly beautiful face that does stand out. I noticed other guys looking at her. She also had the most amazing smile while she was talking to others, she looked like a ‘warm’ person and she had a positive aura about her. When I went to talk to her, she was really nice and not standoffish like the other hot girls. She looked real, being around her the first time made me happy and that’s when I had a crush on her. I wanted to know her more.”
