One-on-One with Katie Duval
So Katie. What was your most embarrassing moment? Probably when I was in 10th grade and we (the volleyball team and I) were at an away game at our rival’s home town. We were sitting on the bleachers watching the freshman game waiting to get ready to play our match and the other team’s football team had just finished practice. The boys from the other team were always really cute and it made it worse that they were our school’s rivals. We were heading into the locker rooms to change from our dress clothes to our uniforms and of course I had decided to wear a shorter skirt for the day. I was almost to the bottom of the bleachers when I tripped and fell in font of the whole football team, the other teams Varsity and everyone else that happened to stop in the gym. On top of that I happened to flash the granny panties I had wrongfully chosen to wear that day. UGH!
So do you have any crazy moments you can recall off hand? One of them would be deciding to drive to California to visit some friends in the middle of the night. By the way we were in CO and it was snowing and there were no drugs involved either. We were just young and wild and we stayed three weeks. Probably another UGH!
So are you the fighting type or the take it easy laid back type? Haha... Recently I had a fight over a boy (what else would it be over) And I think I won but did have a bald spot for months then a little Mohawk until my hair grew out again.
So what do you look for in the opposite sex? Well physical looks are important because with out that then things wouldn’t get past the meet and greet stage. Then I think sense of humor is a must. I am a little quirky and have to have someone in my life that can handle that. Also I need someone who is very caring and is emotionally and mentally strong. Life throws you a lot of curve balls and you have to be strong enough to learn, heal and move on.
What are your turn-offs in guys? What are your turn on’s? Turn offs include, bad teeth and hands. Being too touchy and not being able to handle yourself around other people or in social situations. Being really loud and not keeping up with personal hygiene. Turn on’s sweetness and tenderness. Having good manners and being cultured and educated.
What’s the craziest thing you have ever done on a first date? Nothing really on the first but on the second date I was with this guy and it happened to be cinco de mayo and I had never been to Mexico. So one minute we were sitting in a bar drinking margaritas and the next minute we were flying down to Mexico.
What’s the most uncomfortable situation you have ever been in? Probably most recent would be when my grandmother passed away and it was at home. We basically all sat in the bedroom with her body waiting for the examiners. That was pretty uncomfortable.
How would a guy impress you on a first date? Be himself and treat me really well. Like I was the only person in the world.
What do you look for in selecting a partner? Someone who can meet me in the middle, challenge me and support me.
Do you have any special skills or hobbies? Well I am really good at odd voices and annoying sounds. I have double jointed hands and I love to knit and be crafty.
Do you approach men that you like or do you let them come to you? It depends usually I can get them to approach me but if I am really motivated then I will most defiantly approach them.
What do you do on the weekends? Not much unfortunately. I work Friday and Saturday but I do enjoy a dance your ass off weekend. I usually use my weekends to catch up on being me. Friends, fun, and a little RR.
What are some of the things that relax you? A hot bath, ridding my horse or just curling up and reading. Oh and talking to my mother. She can always relax me.
What is your relationship status? In a committed relationship.
What can be found under your clothes? Victoria Secrets usually.
