New Author on The Block: Sujeiry Gonzalez on Love Trips
Sujeiry Gonzales celebrated the publication of her first book at Apt78 last week. In the course of a busy week publicizing her collection of love anecdotes, this Uptown media mogul took a few minutes out of her day to answer a few questions about love, her own stumbles, what you can get out of her book.
What has been the best lesson you have learned from your past relationships?
That we can’t settle. No matter how lonely or desperate for love we become we shouldn’t accept just any relationship. We need to identify our deal breakers and stick to them. We need to listen to our gut when we feel something is off and see red flags. We need to learn about ourselves and what truly makes us happy with or without a man and/or woman. We need to be happy…alone. Lastly, I’ve learned that if someone wants to be with you they will. No excuses, no need for ‘space’, no other women and/or men in the equation, no confusion. Promises and loving words loose their meaning without action.
How do you feel about men who use pick up lines? What is the Best/Worst you have heard?
Pick-up lines are corny, and I think most women would agree. It’s not genuine. We just want men talk to us as they are. As for the best/worst pick up line, I can’t think of any. That may be because I tune men out as soon as they try to use one!
Who needs to buy and read this book?
My target audience is women. They need to read and buy Love Trips because I write for them. The book is about my relationship experiences and the stumbles I’ve encountered trying to find love…within myself. Through it all, I learn something and become stronger and wiser. Women will relate to my stories. Some may reminisce about being where I’ve been and feel proud that they have also moved on and made better choices. Others may be in the same predicament I present in the book. Hopefully, Love Trips will help women, single or committed, to make better choices. We are Queens and we deserve Kings.
If you had to describe your type of man in 5 words what would they be?
Only five words?! But I need more! Here it is: attractive (to me, that is), communicative, reliable, loving, ambitious
And if we can have a little word play. Your title is Love Trips. Can you tell me 5 Places you would look for/find love any where in the world?
Love this question! So here goes. I would look for love/find love in Los Angeles (sometimes I feel my future husband is waiting for me in L.A!), at networking events, on the train (anywhere), parties of friends/family, and on vacation (Paris, anyone?).
Thanks for taking the time out to talk with us. We wish you much success.
