Favorite Love Song: by The Platters With This Ring
"Baby, I never thought so much love
Could fit in a little band of gold
But I'm telling you, darling
I feel it in my heart, got it in my soul
With this ring I promise I'll always love you, always love you"

Favorite Break-Up Song: by Beyonce Irreplaceable - Powerful lyrics that drip with "cool, I'm so over you" apathy:
"And keep talking that mess, that's fine. Could you walk and talk, at the same time? And it's my name thats on that Jag, So go move your bags, let me call you a cab. You must not know 'bout me, You must not know 'bout me. I could have another you in a minute, matter fact, he'll be here in a minute (baby)"

Favorite Romantic Movie: I adore a good romantic comedy and the best one I've seen lately is The Holiday. I love the energy of the four main characters in this movie and the sweet, honesty of their roles. It's so refreshing to see that Hollywood can actually still put out a love story that's not tainted with cynicism. This is a feel-way-good movie that is warm and fuzzy with a good balance of romance and chemistry. Plus, Jude Law has never looked better. You will absolutely fall in love with his innocent charm and sexy smile.

Sexiest Man Alive: This is a difficult. I choose Patrick Dempsey. He's has definite appeal exuding from his eyes and his little smirk smile. I even thought he was cute way back in the movie Can't Buy Me Love where his mode of transportation was a Snapper. I also was totally enticed to buy the premier issue of Men's Vogue only because of the George Clooney Cover. It was intense, but when it comes right down to it, I would much rather hang out with funny guys.

Favorite Love Song: by Van Morrison Someone Like You - I love anything by Van Morrison, but this song is exceptionally good!  This would be a great first dance at a wedding.

Favorite Break Up Song: by Rod Stewart My Heart Can't Tell me No "When the one you love's in love with someone else..." We've all been down that road before and swear to never go back.

Favorite Romantic Movie:  Pretty Woman with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. Everyone knows and loves this one!

Vote for Sexiest Man Alive: Adam Scott is the professional golfer from Australia. Hottie with an accent!

Morgan Kizer
Favorite Love Song: My Girl It is more sweet than romantic but I love it!

Favorite Break-up Song: by Alanis Morissette You Oughta Know - The song is pretty harsh. The best line: "and everytime you speak her name does she know how you told me you hold me until you died, 'till you died. But you're still alive!"

Favorite Romantic Movie - it may be cliche but The Notebook - I am in love with Ryan Gosling and the kissing scene in the rain is awesome.

Vote for Sexiest Man Alive: see above. I am in love with Ryan Gosling. haha

Kandace Tate
Favorite Love Song: by Michael Buble Home - It makes me melt that someone misses someone that much.

Favorite Break-up Song by Brooks & Dunn: Long Goodbye -  it's not about revenge, it's about two people who are really trying to make it work, and just can't seem to do it.  But they still love each other.

Favorite Romantic Movie: While You Were Sleeping - It just goes to show that sometimes it's better if you don't get what you wish for.

Vote for Sexiest Man Alive: Kenny Chesney - If Mark left me, I'd head down to the Caribbean and spend my life on his Sea Ray listening to him sing to me (but don't tell Mark!!!)


Grace Miller
Favorite Love song: by Stevie Wonder I just called to say I love you - I just feel happy listening to the melody and lyrics.  You just want to pick up the telephone....and say, I love you!


Favorite Break-up song: by Rod Stewart These Foolish Things (remind me of you) A realistic title, right!

Favorite Love Story: The Mighty Heart Angelina Jolie portrays Marianne Pearl in the true story of the tragic loss of Daniel Pearl. Both Marianne and Daniel had a very special bond. Their love was extraordinary and made you aware of how true love is supporting each other's dreams. So, an understanding, pregnant,  Marianne Pearl followed that belief and the rest is history. She is now living with her son in Paris and has the courage to continue her journey because of her "love" Daniel.

Vote for Sexiest Man Alive - It's a tie, so sexiest men: Patrick Dempsey... just love that mysterious grin and Tiger Woods... a handsome man with a twinkle in his eye and a authentic smile!

Katherine Durham
Favorite Love Song: by Ray Charles Come Rain or Come Shine
There are several versions of this song out there, but this is the most soulful. It would be a great accompaniment to a lazy, rainy day or for the first dance at a wedding.

Favorite Break-up Song: by Justin Timberlake What Goes Around Comes Around - The title says it all. Karma's a bitch!

Favorite Romantic Movie: Shadowlands with Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger. He's this stoic, lifelong bachelor who meets an effervescent woman who cracks his hard shell. There's a scene where he's looking at her at a distance, and without him saying anything, you can tell he's thinking "she's the one I love."

Vote for Sexiest Man Alive: Brett Favre He has the stubbly, studly, broken-in look down pat. Plus, broken bones, driving snow, family tragedy...nothing stops this man!
