Former Bachelor Peter Weber shares his most embarrassing dating story: ‘everything I’ve eaten just starts pouring out’
So you’ve matched on Chispa with your Latina queen. What is your ideal first date? Are you impressing her with your salsa moves? Paint me a picture.Ah, I wish I could impress with some salsa mvoves, I still need to to work on that game. Dance wise, I’m a big line dancing fan, so I could take her swing dancing, take her, line dancing- a little two-step action. I could do a little impressing there. But for me, ideal first honestly, it‘s just something simple. I know it sounds crazy to say coming from the show world and all these extravagant things, but something that just allows us the opportunity to see if that connection’s there and just be invested with each other. And you know, like I say, lock eyes and hopefully feel the start of something beautiful happen. And that‘s the ideal first date.
So I definitely kept up with your season. I mean, not a lot of Latinas, definitely none in the top running. So what is it about finding someone who kind of shares Latin roots with you? Is that what is getting you excited about Chispa?I think that‘s what I’ve been missing. I‘m sitting here like I can’t find love the normal way, I can‘t find love through reality TV- maybe this app is going to help me out now. What gets me most excited about Chispa is just the opportunity to connect and get the high odds of meeting someone who just understands like really, truly who I am and my background, where I come from, how, what family means to me, my roots. It sounds so Web dating advice easy to understand, but I guess you really don’t understand it unless you kind of understand that culture and you come from it too. And, you know, for whatever reason, like I‘ve dating amazing women, for sure. Obviously it hasn’t worked out with anyone yet, but maybe it’s just that- I have never dated a Latina. I can’t believe it. And so maybe that’s all I’ve been missing out on the entire time and she can teach me how to learn the salsa and life will be great. And all wil be good in the world again.
So you said you haven‘t really dated a Latina and you probably don’t have any problem meeting ladies in person. So what is about the dating app aspect? Do you feel like its getting that connection right when you see their face, is it just a little bit easier? Tell me a little bit about how you want this dating app experience to go.Yeah, totally. I think honestly, I haven‘t used an app at all since the show. This is my first time doing it, but I have used apps a couple of years ago. But what I think an app like Chispa can offer you is- if you can have chemistry via texting and just like messages, like DMing, if you can have chemistry via that, that’s to me a huge sign, and that‘s only indicative of the possible real chemistry coming in person, you can’t fake that. I think everyone‘s had those dry conversations and it’s like pulling teeth and it‘s just like, one more than the other. You have to pay attention to that. And so that’s something that I plan on doing, and I‘m going to use to my benefit with the app. And I think it’s also a way to allow me to just kind of take it slow, do my kind of my due diligence and you know, really see if I feel like, ‘alright, there’s some potential here now, I‘m now I’m ready to to take the next step and meet them in person.‘ There’s a lot of benefits that can come from that. My brother and his fiance, they met on an app. So I have all the confidence in the world.
