BRIEFED: Did you set any big goals for 2014? Do you have any big plans for the year?
VENDELLA: Absolutely I always set big goals for myself no matter what year it is. I am a firm believer that anything in life is achievable and that if you put your mind to it you can do it!
BRIEFED: What’s your favorite Vancouver restaurant? Favorite area of the city?
VENDELLA: My favorite restaurant in Vancouver would have to be five sails in the pan pacific hotel. It has the most amazing romantic view and scrumptious menu to go along with it. Mmm delicious!!!
BRIEFED: What’s your favourite thing to do in Vancouver?
VENDELLA: My favorite thing to do in Vancouver would have to be summer time strolls on the beach. It reminds me of how beautiful this city really is!
BRIEFED: Many Briefed readers come to us with dating questions. What do you think of pick up lines? Good idea or corny?
VENDELLA: Pick up lines are: lame, lame, lame!!!! I can’t say that enough. Drop the lines and be yourself! Save yourself from looking like a fool with the tired pick up lines. Us women have heard all of them way o many times!
BRIEFED: What’s the worst pickup line a guy has used on you?
VENDELLA: Wow honestly I have heard so many stupid lines it’s hard to narrow it down to just one. There is one that I keep hearing lately that should definitely be retired cause is so pathetic. “Are you on Google? Cause I have been searching for you my entire life!”
BRIEFED: Is it true what many local women say, that Vancouver guys are “boys” and not “men” (that they basically suck)?
VENDELLA: Honestly, I, like every other women in Vancouver have dated the “Vancouver boy”; and yes I meant to underline the word boy! For lack of a better analysis the Vancouver boy is like the peter pan of dating. He never wants to grow up and they never want to commit fully. Also they always have some little ferry like tinker bell letting them walk all over them. So they tend to treat women like there disposable. Sorry Vancouver boys but east coast men have got you beat by a landslide on the dating front.
BRIEFED: If there were one piece of advice you’d give a Vancouver guy who’s trying to improve his chances with the ladies, what would it be?
VENDELLA: My one piece of advice for Vancouver boys would have to be, realize that women in Vancouver talk! We all know each other in one way or another (Vancouver isn’t that big). So be honest and loyal or you will just end up hurting yourself in the end, when every women in town thinks you’re a cheater or just a plain straight up douche bag.
BRIEFED: What’s the best thing about living in Vancouver? The worst thing?
VENDELLA : The best thing about living in Vancouver would have to be that we have the best of both worlds: beaches and ocean, as well as beautiful forests and mountains. The worst would hands down be the rain! OMG I can’t stand rain brrr gross!
You can check out Vendella’s website here: www.vendellasonia.com. Though, given that you live in Van you’re probably too busy suntanning, doing your laundry, and working out to have time to sit in front of a computer. Are there any Vancouver boy-men that want to refute her claims that we’re all douches? If so, leave a comment below.
