Galore’s Real-Life Valentine Studs: Bret, NYC Actor
Valentine’s Day is around the corner. We could be interviewing celebrities, Instagram models, and other guys whose PR teams would restrict half of their answers, but we went a different route.
After all, wouldn’t you rather hear what real guys think about sex? As in, guys who you might actually have a shot at matching with on Tinder this weekend or running into at the bar on February 14th with the other drunk singles.
We’re counting down a new sexy dude every day until Valentine’s Day, and today’s V-Day crush is Bret.
Bret is 27 and lives in New York City. He’s an actor, but we think he could also be a model with that face. He’s also a huge foodie, a.k.a don’t be ashamed of your sushi addiction.
If you could have a threesome with any celebrity couple, who would it be?
Ellen DeGeneres and Anne Heche.
Have you ever hooked up with someone and started to regret it immediately? Why?
Absolutely. It just got super intimate really fast. She was like kissing my eyelids. It was bizarre. It was like we were a married couple for ten years.
Do you prefer younger girls? Are girls your age looking to settle down too fast?
No, I actually tend to date older girls. I have an older focus as far as my interests. I’m not a huge loud screaming bar guy, I’m more of a quiet lounge guy. When I date girls my age it’s like we’re sort of on conflicting paths, but when I date someone older we mesh better.
What’s one weird thing you know about sex that you wish you didn’t?
How much sex you can have in an afternoon.
What’s the most sex you’ve had in an afternoon?
I have had like marathon sessions with an ex girlfriend that went on for hours straight.
What is something all of your exes have in common?
I for the most part tend to date strong individual women. They have a very strong stance on who they are. They bring something very unique and tasteful into my life.
What’s your biggest dating deal breaker?
I guess inflexibility. Someone that’s closed-minded. I like to get away from the ABC’s of going out to the bar. If someone just wants to go out and get drunk, it’s kind of a turn-off for me.
What’s the one thing that will instantly turn you on in bed?
When someone kisses my collarbone or the back of my ear, it drives me insane.
What’s the one thing you refuse to do in bed?
I’m pretty open. Besides Angelina Jolie drinking blood with Billy Bob Thornton, I’d pretty much go for it all.
Describe your type in three words:
That’s tricky. Artistic, confident, and vulnerable. Not like a predatory vulnerable, I mean has a sense of depth to her.
Kind of willing to put it all out there?
Yeah, like unabashed.
Describe what type you are:
Headstrong, determined, and then goofy too. I have both sides of me.
What’s your sign?
Does that fit with your personality?
Pretty much. I’ve had a lot of serious relationships, but I’m very comfortable being on my own. I’m very career-oriented. I spend most of my time working on myself. Not in a narcissistic way, but that’s what gives me a lot of pleasure: bettering myself. That’s a very capricorn trait, to be very stubborn, goal-oriented, and driven.
If a girl wants to date an actor, what does she need to know?
I’ve dated a lot of girls on the 9-to-5 circuit and that doesn’t really work out. I’m almost envious of their schedules. They have weekends off whereas I can get an audition or job at 7pm on a Thursday night or 6 am on a Friday morning. I have to blow off plans last minute and I’m not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings, it’s just my line of work. I think actors are also in some way solitary people. A lot of actors I know are introverts. We spend a lot of time trying to figure out who we are as people. I’m very unpredictable at times. Sometimes that gets taken out on the people closest to you, and it’s unfair.
What type of person hits on you the most?
I get hit on by gay guys all the time or older women. I mean like older-older, like 55, 60. I always find that in some way I’m intimidating. Not in an arrogant way, but I’m 6’2, 215 pounds. Sometimes people perceive me as an asshole because I put forward this image of a very solid all-American type. I feel like older women are beyond that and don’t give a shit, but girls my age assume I’m only after one thing.
Best gift for V-Day?
For my birthday someone gave me tickets to see Steve Cullen, the millionaire magician, inside the Waldorf-Astoria. I like stuff like that, that’s more of an experience that I could share with someone.
What’s the worst date you’ve ever been on?
It was horrible. I ended up on a blind date. I was supposed to meet this girl and it was raining so I ran inside the K-Mart to wait for the girl. We ended up going to Dallas BBQ. Not a typical date spot, but I just wanted somewhere fast. I went to the bathroom and came back and there were crushed up pills all over the table. She’s snorted the pills, she’s just shit-faced high, it was ridiculous. She goes in to kiss me, bites my lip, and falls asleep. It was horrible, worst dating experience anyone could ever have.
What’s the lamest pickup line you’ve ever used?
I was 21, it was my first year living in NYC full time. I was working at a restaurant on NYE. This girl was at the bar and was gorgeous. Like Marisa Tomei at 24. It turned out she was a lot older but she was looking at me and asked me to watch her purse. I said, “Well, I want to watch a lot more.” When she came back, she was like, “Let’s go out,” and that was NYE 2011. One expensive hotel bill later… I was broke. I used all the money I got for xmas. My friends make fun of me to this day about that.
