"I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentines Day — the whole concept is pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Unless, of course, this ravishing Romeo wants to wine and dine me. In that case, slap some wings on my back, put me in a diaper and call me Cupid. After I nail him with my arrow, he can return the favor. #ButJustTheArrowTip
"I don't know if it’s the hot mess we call our American political system, the brains and brawn of Prime Minister #JustinTrudeau, or this perfectly coiffed Canuck, but Canada is starting to look pretty appealing these days, eh? If they have those kinds of men running things up there, 24 Sussex is feeling like way more my speed than the White House, especially since you #CantSpellSussexWithout…"
"Get a load of this ten from Toronto. With that sort of laser concentration and power stance, this one must be a hockey player and I more than dig it. Wonder if he's more comfortable playing offense or defense? Doesn't matter, because I plan on scoring with him not once, not twice, but three times tonight." #HatTrick

"Just when I thought this year's most beautiful piece of art had already come and gone (#Ye), I laid eyes on this masterpiece of a man enjoying a nice read. Despite what you may think about manbuns or Kanye, we can all agree that this guy's perfect profile and beautiful book work together as seamlessly as all seven flawless tracks, back to back. Once I work up the motivation to make a move, he’ll be #AllMine and I’m positive he #WouldntLeave." #yeezyseason#hotdudesreading

"Well toss me a couple sea shells and call me Ariel because this guy is giving me major Prince Eric vibes. As long as I don’t flounder (see what I did there?) my way through an introduction - I’ll be whisking him off this bus in no time and showing him where things are better.#YouWantThingamaBoobs #IGotTwo#hotdudesreading
"Dios maldito! Barcelona always knows how to bring the heat but this Spanish stallion just took things up to a whole new level. And judging by that espresso cup, I'd say he's on the market for a steamy, little pick-me-up. No need for the double-shot this time around though - I've already got what it takes to keep you up all night right here." #JustCallMeTheBarista#AndGrindUpOnMe #HotDudesReading

"Everyone else might be at Coachella but I'm just on this train trying to figure out where this burley brunette is headed. Lucky for him, he doesn’t have to go all the way to the desert for a show stopping performance. And I promise mine will be much more intimate." #LoveOnTop #LoveOnBottom#LoveInTheMiddle
"I never quite mastered the German language, but the sight of this flawless Frankfurter has me sputtering every German word I know. Achtung! Guten Morgen! Wiener Schnitzel! Not sure why the last one came to mind but now that I think about it..." #HoldTheSchnitzel
"Girl, you better back off. I'm trying really hard not to have a Brandy v. Monica episode on this train. That bulging bicep clenching the “Art of Dreaming” has me hoping he’ll sneak into more than just my dreams tonight. And trust, there’s only room for one more." #TheBoyIsMine
San Francisco, CA
"It may still be sweltering in #NYC but here in #SF sweater weather is in full swing, and this stoic stunner sure knows how to rock that cashmere. As the temperature continues to drop, I think he could find more than just an expensive knit to keep me warm on a cold autumn night." #NoLayeringNecessary#ThoughIDoAppreciateIt

"With the Olympics around the corner, I want to put this Brazilian bombshell through some of my own games. First, he can jump a few hurdles in the race to my affection. Then we can make like divers and get synchronized. If he gets that far, I'll reward his stellar performance by proving golf isn't the only sport where you can master a stroke." #FOREEEEplay #HoleInOne

"This stellar stud at SFO is straight fire. Hopefully he's on a redeye direct to JFK, where I'll be waiting with open arms...among other limbs." #Widestance
