By Jessica Conigliaro

Olympic gold medalist Swimmer Ryan Lochte is single–and looking! Lochte tells People that  a major turn off for him is when a girl is a bad kisser. “Honestly, if she can make me laugh, then I’m pretty much sold,” he says. “If she’s not funny, she’s taking life too seriously and that’s definitely not how I live my life. I have fun in any aspect of life.”

What are some ways to tell if you’re a good match for someone?

Cupids Advice:

When on a first date, it is often hard to tell if the person is right for you. You have to ask the right questions and hope they are giving you honest answers. Cupid is here to help you weed through the bad seeds and find a good match for you:

1. Similar interests: After meeting someone new, always find out what their hobbies are. Try to find a common ground between the two of you. If you are really into sports and he is wearing a jersey of your favorite team–that is definitely a good sign. Start up a conversation about the team–you both will love having that common interest so early in the relationship.

2. Makes you laugh: The person you choose to be with should be able to make you laugh–especially when you are feeling down. Laughter is needed to lighten the mood and to have some fun. You should find your partner to be humorous, or things will get boring very quickly in the relationship.

3. Feel comfortable around them: You have been dating your partner for a few weeks and start to eat messier around him and care a little less about the way you look and act around him. That is definitely a good sign! You are starting to care more about just being around your date, and less about making a good impression. Being comfortable around someone is the first major step to a real relationship.
