When it comes to looks, McConnell loves all types of women.
“I like them in all shapes and sizes. It’s really just more of your style and if you have that je ne sais quoi. She does have to be naturally beautiful, but I don’t care if her hair is a weave or locks, as long as it fits her face.”
“A woman you can tell who has baggage and is mad at the world [is a turnoff]. Some women come out of relationships and want to generalize all men and put them all in this negative category. When you start doing that, you’re cheating yourself out of a lot of good opportunities.”
McConnell shares what he’s looking for in a woman.
“I want a combination of all the strong women that I’ve come across in my life. I want the nurturing of my mother; the strong, bold wisdom of my grandmother; and that romantic queasy feeling I got from my first love.”
