Q & A with Lisa Edelstein for match.com  
an amazing & wise interview.. the incredible & wise woman..

The star of House reveals the hardest lesson she’s learned about love—and the two words she tells herself to maintain an upbeat outlook.

Q: On FOX’s House, your character often gets entangled in arguments with her boss, played by Hugh Laurie. Why do you think women find Hugh so sexy?
A: He’s that classic bad boy type. There’s something very sexy about that—which is why women love him.

Q: Do you go for the bad boy type as well?
A: My type is a caring man who is very supportive and a great listener. But those guys are certainly hard to find.

Q: Earlier this season, your character considered trying online dating. Ever done it in real life?
A: When you’re on a television show, it’s kinda hard to do that. You never know if they would really be interested in you or your fame. But hopefully, I will be meeting someone soon in some other capacity!

Q: Where do you go to meet men?
A: Well, the bar scene really isn’t for me. I love my ashtanga yoga class—it would be great to find someone who appreciates good health and spirituality. But I haven’t found anyone there yet! But you know what, if it doesn’t happen, I am OK with that too. It seems silly to have to spend all my energy trying to find someone that’s supposed to complete me. I am complete with myself. It would be great to have the next man in my life actually appreciate that.

Q: What do you think is the worst thing women do when they get involved in relationships?
A: I feel sometimes they get so wrapped up, they get distracted. Goals they have in life get put aside, just to please the guy they’re with.

Q: What have you learned from your past relationships?
A: I really think it’s important to not sell yourself short. I’ve done that and it really sucks.

Q: Do you have any advice for people who are in the dating scene?
A: Enjoy yourself. Take yourself out on a date. Relax—it will happen when it’s supposed to. My friends always call me when they’re having relationship/dating problems, and I’m always the one to say, “Calm down!” I don’t think women really enjoy the time they have when they’re single. There really is so much emphasis on getting involved with someone. I try to take everything in stride and am perfectly happy being single. But I haven’t given up on love… I believe there really is someone out there for everyone.

is it so important? I don't think so. I think the journalist was much more interested in the real Lisa Edelstein, than in the fictional Lisa Cuddy. and me too.

I think this was during season 3 because the interviewer mentioned Cuddy's on-line dating earlier that season. That was in 'Insensitive' if i'm not mistaken.. Who could forget the date interruptions? X) ... nyhoo, wasn't it during this time that Lisa E met the yoga teacher who became her boyfriend? I guess she found someone during the yoga class then? lol.. Who can resist her anyway? I hope when she finally found that somebody, that he knows how lucky he is to have her in his life. That he takes very good care of her and treasure her. Otherwise, I'll mentally kick his @ss through eternity and beyond (as if i could do anything more? hehe)

OooOoo See, that explains it, the initial reason for her getting the interview to begin with (well show publicity), then tied into, in passing, a subplot....remembering those details and not one big one....kinda even worse. LOL....Thanks for semi-dating this for me. Can't wait til we have new things to look at because diving through archives really not doing it for me.

EDIT: Unless they're old 80s ones, that I can't get enough of :D
