Tease Lifestyle: What’s the worst date you’ve ever been on? Describe.
Melissa Lori: Hmmm I have had some pretty bad ones but probably when the guy doesn’t pay for my meal or do the gentleman things he is supposed to do which happens more so than not.
Tease Lifestyle: Yes. Unfortunately chivalry isn’t as a common these days. It needs to make a come back.
Tease Lifestyle: Describe one really crazy experience?
Melissa Lori: Going indoor skydiving. No it’s probably not as scary as the real thing but it was pretty unreal.
Tease Lifestyle: Below the belt… Does size really matter? And what’s most important for you?

Melissa Lori: I’ve heard so many terrible ones it would be impossible to pin point just one haha.

Melissa Lori: Hard to say because it’s more about his personality and character than the way he looks and what’s in his bank account.
Tease Lifestyle: What’s something that you think guys are messing up on in the world of dating ?
Melissa Lori: DON’T CHEAT. It’s that simple.
Tease Lifestyle: Which celebrity is your ideal body/looks type ?
Melissa Lori: I have always loved Channing Tatum, Chris Brown and Ryan Reynolds. I also thing for Justin Bieber, he is hot haha.
