David Gandy stands up for shy guys

EN Fashion - David Gandy thinks shy guys are "the best".

The 34-year-old British model is notoriously private about his love life, but has dated singer Mollie King in the past and was linked to Les Misérables star Samantha Barks last year.

It's currently not known if the handsome mystery man is single, but he did reveal that he likes to be approached by potential love interests.

"Sometimes the best guys are the shy ones, and they're not going to ask you out," he revealed to the UK edition of Cosmopolitan.

"I've got girlfriends who say, 'Why do I always pick bad guys?' and it's because they go for the extravagant, confident men who always approach them. They don't realise they're like that with every single woman.

"It's the quiet, shy ones you should talk to. Sometimes you've got to take matters into your own hands; if you're not in the game, you're not going to score!"

David thinks the best dates are "active" ones and revealed his best so far was a day at greyhound racing.

He might have fans throwing themselves at him, but the Dolce & Gabbana hunk admits that being famous has a downside when it comes to dating.

"I couldn't use [dating apps], but a lot of friends have had success using them," he said.

"If you go to a bar, the chances of meeting someone that night who has the same likes and sense of humour as you... well, it leaves a lot up to fate. Online dating makes sense: you see their picture, you know if you're attracted to them and whether you have the same interests. I have to go down the old-school route and I'm useless!"

The star added that he would always pay on a date and that his biggest no-no is having your phone out when you're with a special someone.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician.

In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
