Kelly Rowland Lays Down Her Dating Guidelines: ‘I Deserve to be Romanced’

It comes as no surprise that winning the heart of someone as sought after as Kelly Rowland would be a difficult task. So if you’re looking to impress the ‘Motivation’ hitmaker, make sure you put your best foot forward. In a recent interview with ESSENCE Rowland reveals that, “In the first twenty minutes with somebody, I know if the date is not going to go well.” With only twenty minutes to make a lasting impression on the diva, she expresses her biggest turn-offs and turn-ons in hopes of “motivating” the right man to find her.

What type of man could make the very busy Rowland slow down? She says, “He’s got to have great confidence.” Rowland goes on to explain, “He’s got to be assured in himself as a man and have great goals. Ambition looks so sexy on anybody. Plus, I think it’s really important for him to have a great sense of humor. That’s just so sexy to me.”

Confidence, ambition, goal-oriented and a sense of humor – is there anything else that turns Rowland’s head? She reveals that flirting is another requirement in finding Mr. Right. With a huge grin across her face Kelly tells ESSENCE, “Oh, I’m a big fan of flirting.” She adds, “Just the little things, like when you can wink at me from the other side of the room and you make me feel like I’m the flyest chick in there, or if you pinch my butt when I’m leaving the room and don’t nobody else see it. That’s the best! That stuff just drives me nuts, and I’m like, oh my God, let’s go home – right now!”

Men, now that you have a run-down of what Ms. Kelly finds most attractive, it’s only fair to tell you that guys with big egos always get the cold shoulder with her. “Arrogance is just so unnecessary, she frowns and says. She ends with, “I do like for [a man] to be a little bit cultured. I think that is so nice. For them to be closed-minded to even trying something new, now that’s not gonna work. I mean, you don’t even want to try it? No. Please romance me because I deserve to be romanced.”

It doesn’t seem like she’s asking for anything impossible men. She just wants what all women want. Do you think that you could be the one to make Kelly Ro settle down?
