From picking engagement rings, first date conversations, or which movie to watch with a date on a night in (hint: it’s Korean), We sit down with the bright and beautiful Kathy Gardiner.
What advice can you offer a guy trying to pick out an engagement ring?
Only buy what you can afford and design it yourself with of course your lady’s opinion.

Have you ever met a guy in a bar and have it work out? Do you think it’s possible for people to meet in a bar and go on to have a good relationship?
Well I have but it didn’t work out otherwise I would be with him, right? I think it is possible but I wouldn’t recommend it. Anything is possible.

Do girls still care about things like “3 month anniversaries,” or is that stuff reserved for high school?
I can’t speak for all girls but I am definitely not that girl. I can hardly remember the actual day I meet someone, I just enjoy every moment without worrying about a time period.
Do you think married couples should have a joint bank account, or maintain separate accounts?
Well it is not the 1950’s anymore so I think they should have both. I do still believe that if one person in the relationship is going to make a big purchase it should be discussed out of respect of how it may affect each other.
