She may be sweet and innocent, but we can promise you, gentlemen, that actress Trisha LaFache knows exactly what she wants. What’s that, you ask?
Well, that’s a pretty good question, so we decided to find out:
Urbasm: Hi Trisha, what’s going on with you this year?
Trisha LaFache: I have a new movie coming out, God’s Not Dead 2. It will be out April 1st.
Urbasm: That’s coming up pretty soon.
Trisha LaFache: We were so lucky that so many people went to see the first movie that we got to make a second one! I hope all of those people and more go to see it.
Urbasm: Is it a “dude” flick?
Trisha LaFache: You should see it because it has three strong female leads: Melissa Joan Hart, Hayley Orrantia and myself; it also stars Ernie Hudson who is an OG Ghostbuster. It’s about standing up for what you believe in when all signs point to “No”.
Urbasm: Well, those are some pretty convincing reasons…
Urabsm: And the preview looks great.
Switching gears a bit, we heard you don’t mind offering dating advice for men. Can you clue us in on what it is that every woman wants?
Trisha LaFache: Kindness. Respect. Humor. Brains. Cutie.
Urbasm: Yeah, we’re pretty close on this one. And while we’re on the topic, what are ‘you’ looking for… both in a man and life?
Trisha LaFache: What do I want from a man? Same!! Okay, I answered for me.
Trisha LaFache: Even if a woman likes her man a little alpha, which I do – even the nerds, at their core – he must be kind. If your man is not kind, then he better be rich because my assumption is that you are in it for the money. And if he is broke and not kind; Call me girl, because you can do better.
Urbasm: Yes she can. And what do you want out of life?
Trisha LaFache: I think I already have it – Family, friends, work, love, vacations. For the world? I’d like there to be a lot more compassion and generosity. Also more discourse. Everything is a fight or a stupid sound bite. “Your side, my side. Man it’s all b.s.” That’s a quote from “Can’t Buy Me Love,” by the way. Also I’d like a magic carpet.
Urbasm: A magic carpet would be cool (laughs). What is your ‘best’ dating story?
Trisha LaFache: On a second date a guy took me to pick up my niece at the airport, took us to the beach and then we went flying over Los Angeles. After we went flying we went to dinner – The three of us (laughs). It was actually very, very fun.
Urbasm: Worst date?
Trisha LaFache: I’m sure I blocked it out.
Urbasm: Yeah, we don’t like to reminisce about ours either. What are the types of women that every man should date at least once, in your opinion?
Trisha LaFache: A strong, independent woman, a nurturing woman, an adventurous woman and a low maintenance woman.
Urbasm: What are your best tips for picking up a sweet and innocent woman that will make both the man (and his mom) very happy?
Trisha LaFache: I’m pretty sure it’s easy to pick up the sweet and innocent type because they don’t send off a “too cool or too tough” vibe. They don’t tend to complicate the scenario by putting off a vibe that they don’t why to be spoken to. I had a group of married guys once tell me “my business model was all wrong.” They said I was too hot and intimidating to wait for guys to talk to me, because the kind of guys who would have the confidence to talk to me are not going to be nice guys.
Urbasm: That’s a gutsy thing to say.
Trisha LaFache: I actually appreciated it – thought it was a pretty good note. [But] here are a few tips for guys to consider: Have a suit that fits you like a glove, don’t be wishy-washy – and always make your woman feel like a queen.
Urbasm: Oh yeah, we’ve heard that last tip quite often, so it must be true. And what are your three best tips to make almost any man into a better one?
Trisha LaFache: Maybe all your readers are amazing men to begin with?
Urbasm: (laughs) We never thought of that.
Trisha LaFache: Don’t be friends with a girl just because you want to hook up with her. And then stop being her friend if she’s not interested. Rude. Do not talk about how pretty another woman is in front of your girl and especially don’t do it in front of your girl’s friend; they will probably secretly judge. Stop sending your “representative” to meet people. If you hate the ballet; then hate the ballet from the beginning. Because if you take me on month one and then in month 10 I learn you secretly hate it, I’m going to think you are a tool. Be you.
Urbasm: Trisha, we have definitely learned a few important things today. Thank you, and perhaps a God’s Not Dead (Part 3) may be in your future. Godspeed.
