Brynn Whitfield Reveals What She’s Looking for in a Romantic Partner

The Real Housewives of New York star Brynn Whitfield was enjoying the single life while filming the rebooted series. Although one can’t recall that she brought cameras along for that aspect of her life. Viewers swooned over her ex-fiancé Gideon, but the duo are not getting back together.

So the fashionista is still looking for Mr. Right, and it would be interesting to know what the reality TV star is looking for in a partner.

Brynn knows “exactly what she wants” in a partner

The marketing professional shared her criteria for a long-term love during an interview with Us Weekly.

“No reality stars [and I call it] the Triple A. I no longer do athletes, actors or alcoholics,” Brynn explained. “I stay away from those three: The AAA, triple crown, triple threat. I won’t do that.”

The RHONY star is swiping left on those guys. But what kind of characteristics is she looking for?

Brynn revealed, “[I am looking for] someone who’s kind, nice, funny, tall. On my Raya profile, I said, ‘You have to be taller than me, smarter than me [and] funnier than me.’ And the guys would [be] like, ‘Well, maybe I’ve got two of those.’ … But, I just want someone who’s just, like, a copilot … who’s super cool and treats others well and is nice.”

Well, the Bravolebrity is prepared to make an exception on height in honor of the “short king spring” trend, courtesy of social media.

Brynn coyly said that she would indeed, “go down to a short king.” She added, “It’s fine, it’s spring!”

Brynn admitted to being matched with a very promising gentleman before deleting Raya “for the 10th time.”

“I promised myself that I’m not going to get back on,” she stated. “Because I went into the account when … I was going to change something and it was like, ‘Congratulations, Brynn. You’ve been a Raya member since 2017.’ And I was like, ‘Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. You basically just told me that this app doesn’t work, right? It’s exclusive, whatever.’ I was like, ‘I’m not proud of the fact that I’ve been [on it since then].’ I did get on really early, but I was like, ‘No, no, I’m deleting this.’”

With experience comes wisdom. And Brynn while she hasn’t met Mr. Right yet, she knows “exactly what [she] wants.”

“I think the next one, it has to be The One,” she opined. “I probably will date someone on the down-low for a while, [but] I’m not going to put anything on social. I’ll probably show one watch as we’re flying somewhere. I’ll do all those [soft launches] and people will be zooming in. ‘Who is she?’ The FBI will be on it, but I’m tired.”

Speaking from past mistakes, Brynn also decided that moving slow with any future relationships is optimal.

“I can’t do ‘I’m going to move in with you’ and then we move out. I can’t do the ‘I’m going to meet your parents and I become close to your family and you get to know me.’ I’ve done a lot of those. … I’m trying to patiently wait and trying to pretend to the universe that I’m not looking when I am,” the RHONY star explained.

Surprisingly, Brynn’s exposure on the show did not translate into more dates. She’s been putting herself out there, but “a proper date” hasn’t materialized in months.

“I was hoping that I have more DMs and stuff, [but] not really,” Brynn revealed. “I haven’t gone on a date, a proper date in a few months. I’ve been traveling [and] I’ve been really busy … I blame it on traveling busy, but I think I’m just happy right now.”

The Real Housewives of New York City is expected to return to Bravo later this year.
