Nashville's Most Eligible - The BNA bae Ashley Martin
Who should make the first move?
I'm old school. I like a man who's confident and makes the first move.
Worst pick up line every used?
How much does a polar bear weigh? Enough to break the ice.
Idea of a dream date?
Dinner and cocktails, maybe some live music, topped off with ice cream from Savannah's Candy Kitchen.
Other favorite local hot spots?
Urban Grub, The Southern Steak & Oyster, Sambuca, and if it's a special occasion, The Standard at the Smith House.
Bobby Bones. ALL DAY.
Online dating - yes or no?
I'll try anything once. I don't like to go into new things/scenarios with my mind already made up. The internet is a great place to meet and connect with people you may not ever cross paths with otherwise.
Biggest challenge with modern dating?
Sorting through all the people who aren't looking for the same thing.
Favorite things to do with a partner?
Cook, play tourist and explore all the new things happening in Nashville. Also, go Preds! Love hockey and love the Nashville Predators.
I haven't met Ashley in person but I can tell that she's definitely someone who knows how to have a good time. She works at a high-end hotel by day and runs a lifestyle concierge blog, The BNA bae, by night. Outside of work, she spends time with the five year-old version of herself who seems to exhibit just as much personality as her fun-loving mama.
So what is Ashley looking for in a partner? I got all the deets and then some. But first, a few fun facts about this blonde bombshell:
But she no longer dates tools. Ashley's top three must-haves in a partner are faith, kindness/empathy and strong communication skills. She's looking for someone who is kind, authentic and attentive. If you are mean, hold grudges, won't own up to your own decisions (good or bad), or think lying is ok, you can keep on walking. Also, Ashley might be smokin' hot, but she doesn't date smokers.
Lessons learned from past relationships?
People show you who they are by their actions - believe them. Don't fall for insincere apologies - especially repetitive ones. Someone who is truly sorry will show you with their actions.
