He’s the standout star of the London 2012 Olympics.
And now US swimmer Ryan Lochte has given women everywhere an insight into how to get, er, a little closer to him. Top tip: if he winks, you’re in…
Asked what he does when he fancies a woman, he says: ‘Make eye contact. Some guys keep staring, but I'll give a wink and come back later, because it keeps her thinking.’
In the interview with Women’s Health, the gold medallist – and Vogue cover star – also revealed he rarely wears clothes and likes sex with the lights on.
And the superpower he’d most like to have? ‘It's impossible to know what they're [women] thinking. If I could have one superpower, I'd be like Mel Gibson in What Women Want, where he reads women's minds.’
No words, people. No words.
Better clear our thoughts of Ryan in his lycra swimmers then…
And if you want to seduce him, don’t worry about wearing a swimming cossie (phew!). Instead, a simple shirt or white jeans will do it. Given his love of fashion – he wants to become a designer when his Olympic career is over – clothes are VERY important to him. ‘It's how your personality comes out. I don't have a set style, but I try not to dress like everyone else.’
Sigh. Ryan Lochte: a man we can definitely get along with.
