Throughout most of his ride as a host on 106 & Park, Terrence J was passed on for his cornball persona, but ever since he got his grown man on in Think Like a Man, a lot of people have been checking for him as a bit of a sex symbol—hence the slew of questions lately about how he feels about women. It also doesn’t hurt that he has a gorgeous model girlfriend by the name of Selita Ebanks.
Anyway, in an interview with Essence the magazine asked the budding actor just what it is that makes a man fall in love and he had this to say:
“I always just say it’s those intangible things,” says J. “Whenever you say the cliché things… things like, I’m looking for someone who’s intelligent or beautiful. There are always people who are intelligent and there are always people who are beautiful. It really comes down to those intangible things. I fall in love with mismatched socks, or leaving hair in the sink. It’s really the intangible things that make you you.”
According to Essence, that’s just a preview of the knowledge he’ll be dropping at a panel during the Essence Music Festival on what men want, alongside D.B. Woodside and Terrell Tillford of Single Ladies and NFL player Devin Thomas. Pardon me while I go purchase my ticket.
Terrence isn’t just interested in helping the ladies though. He’s also partnered with Crown Royal Black on a new program aimed at promoting responsible drinking among party goers. The two parties will be handing out free pre-paid Safe Rides cards to legal drinking-age consumers at upcoming The Crown Life events.
“What we want to do is make sure that people have a great time at the party and also on the way home,” he said. “We want to make sure we get you to your destination safely. That’s why we started the Safe Rides program. We take it for granted, but at the end of the night, those cards will save lives. When you see me and you see Crown, we’re gonna have ‘em.”
He’s definitely turning into a young man to watch. And ladies, don’t go leaving your hair in the sink thinking that’s going to make a man fall in love with you.
