Galore’s Real-Life Valentine Studs: Zach, DJ
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.
Zach is a California cutie who knows a thing or two about music. He balances his time between college classes and tearing up the DJ booth.
What’s your biggest dating deal-breaker?
Any time a girl uses the wrong “you’re/your” I cringe a little. If you don’t know basic grammar by now, our conversations probably aren’t going anywhere.
What’s the one thing that will make you fall for a girl?
I like to think I’m funny, so a girl with a cute smile that laughs at my jokes is always a plus. Bonus points if you can out-joke me, the cornier the better.
What’s something that every girl needs to know about dating a DJ?
They’re never around and they’re usually surrounded by girls, so it’s tough not to get jealous. But it comes with the territory and the girls are rarely ever a threat.
Has a girl ever inspired one of your songs? How so?
Sometimes when I’m looking for a song to remix, I pick one based on how I’m feeling at the moment. Music is a cool way to express how I’m feeling, so there’s definitely some underlying shade in a couple. I’m working on an all-original EP at the moment and there’s definitely some emotionally charged lyrics on there.
Can you send us an example?

How can a girl get your attention from the DJ booth?
Normally when a girl’s trying to get my attention, it’s to request some form of a Justin Bieber song or to get my friend’s number. The classic is just holding a phone in front of my face with a song title. I would HIGHLY recommend not doing this as it is one of my biggest pet peeves of the job. Best way is to wait patiently or get my manager’s attention and try to get on his side.
What song should every heartbroken girl listen to on V-Day?
My recommendations are Gnash – Tell Me It’s Okay and Mike Posner – Not That Simple.
Finish this sentence: I could never date someone who was a fan of…
What do you want for Valentine’s Day?
A text back.
Do you think Valentine’s Day is overrated?
I think it’s a bit of a scam, but if I were in a relationship right now I probably wouldn’t be saying that.
What’s the lamest pick up line you’ve ever used?
Hey are you from Tennessee? Because I just want to make out with your face.
What’s the sexiest thing about girls in the winter?
I love a girl that can dress well in winter, whenever I try to dress up in the cold, I usually end up looking like a marshmellow, so I’m impressed with girls that can pull it off.
Where would you take a girl for a V-Day date?
Some sort of BYO, maybe sushi or nice Italian, we go get coffee or hot chocolate after and then I serenade you with some piano in some random hotel lobby.
What’s your Netflix and chill go-to show/movie?
The movie Rubber on there is perfect to watch with a girl. Its a conceptual art piece about a serial killer that’s actually just a rubber tire. It really gets me emotional.
Chocolate or roses?
Lingerie or teddy bears?
Teddy bears wearing lingerie (ok, but you can too).
Beach getaway or ski resort?
I’m from California, so I have to go with the beach getaway. Some place warm for sure.
