The latest Hills reality star to get engaged is Whitney Port, following in the footsteps of on-camera BFF Lauren Conrad. The Whitney Eve fashion designer and author is betrothed to Tim Rosenman, who was an associate producer for Port's Hills spinoff show, The City (Maybe you can find true love on reality TV?). But before the blonde designer gets hitched, let's take a look back at some of her own quotes on love, dating, men, and the surprising thing she said about marriage:
On Personal Space: “I don’t need a guy to call me every second,” she says. “I find that if you give them their independence, you’re more attractive to them and they appreciate you more. I have always been a confident person and don’t feel the need to watch over a guy. It’s so important in a relationship to have your own separate lives.”
On Going Dutch: "I’ve met some very interesting people, and I’ve had some horrible blind dates. One guy took me to dinner, and when the check came, he said, “How about we join forces on this one?” I thought to myself, When you go on a date, you expect the guy to pay for you. And then at the same time, Why should a guy have to pay for you? So we ended up splitting it. But you’d think that when you’re on camera, you’d try your hardest to be respectful and gentlemanlike! Maybe he just wasn’t into it and wanted to cut me loose!"
On Demanding Dudes: "Guys need to realize that they need to wait awhile and that they shouldn't be so desperate."
On Being Realistic: "When Im fed up and Im not getting what I need, Ill say, 'Whats the deal? What do you want from this?' Im not someone who's going to sit around and wait. If a guy says, 'I want to be with you,' then great. If not, I cut my losses."
On First Kisses: "I have always been kind of a prude. But kissing is harmless to me, and sometimes a kiss can tell if it’s even worth seeing that person again!"
On Being Whitney: "I figure if I just stay true to myself and I am the Whitney that I've always been, people will look at me not as Whitney from the show, but as a human being."
On Being in Love: “I’m scared to be in love because I don’t want to let myself go, and I don’t know if I’m ready to get that deeply into it..."
On Marriage: “Getting married is never something that I would need in order to feel complete.”
On Listening: "I think its important on a date to listen and be interested in the other person. If a guy isn't going to be interested in me, then Im not going to force him!"
On Cheating: “If I were in a relationship, I’d break up with a guy before I cheated. And if a guy ever cheated on me, I’m out of there. Once you lose that trust, you can never get it back.”
