This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

The ARTISTocratic Stud

February, 3, 2014

Since I was little, I’ve made up words…not in school papers though. I learned early on that teachers don’t allot A’s for creativity! ARTISTocrat in the “Katherine Dictionary” is someone who has achieved the highest level of artistic excellence. That perfectly describes Jencen.

The ARTISTocratic Stud

He’s a professional-level pianist, and an award-winning cook who relies on his sense of smell more than recipes. He’s talented and attractive, but doesn’t have an ounce of egotism. He is one of the most genuine, thoughtful guys I’ve ever met.

Since February – the Valentine month – is now officially in play, while Jencen and I cooked, I got the inside track on his view of romance.

On each Meeting Men Monday this month, I’ll feature a different guy with a unique background and divulge his dating tips. Without further ado, here are Jencen’s thoughts.

The Passion Play. Jencen explained, “If a girl wants to up her chances of a guy liking her, she should show him her interesting side. The more passions she has, the more interested and passionate a guy becomes toward her.”

A Speed Demon Won’t Win the Dating Race. When I asked Jencen for his #1 date deal-breaker he said, “A girl who eats faster than me.” And that wasn’t his only food analogy. After all, he IS a chef!

Cooking and Romance…How Different Are They? Jencen says that he is most drawn to a girl who “appeals to all of my senses.” He likes women who are attractive, have great personalities, and smell good. Okay ladies, where’s that perfume? If you’re going out with a chef who cooks by sense of smell, you can see how important that would be.

When it comes to Jencen’s kissing style, he says, “The tongue is the garnish. Not the main course.”

I think that sums it up! For Wild Card Wednesday, I’ll give you the step-by-step recipe to the delicious French dish Jencen and I cooked.
