Eugenie Bouchard scared after artist draws 'serial killer' as her ideal man
| Last updated
Everyone has their own tastes when it comes to finding people attractive, and for tennis star Eugenie Bouchard, apparently that taste is 'serial killer-esque'.
The tennis player, who is currently absent from the sport while recovering from a long injury, recently appeared on the Golf Mostly podcast where she discussed her love life, joking that she was 'single and lonely'.
The hosts recruited a sketch artist to draw Bouchard's 'ideal guy' while she laid out some features that she finds attractive, including a 'dainty' nose, ears and forehead.
"My first instinct is tall, dark and handsome; decent cheekbone structure obviously. I like hair that's not too short, I like a little medium-length, a little longer-length hair," she said.
She went on to request 'nice thick eyebrows' and 'full lips', none of which are typical indicators of serial killers. However, things probably took a turn with the sketch when Eugenie described a 'brooding, kind of mysterious' look, combined with the advice that he should 'never smile'.
Eugenie couldn't help but laugh when the sketch was revealed, showing a somewhat lifeless face with shaggy hair and an unsmiling mouth.
"Guys I'm scared," she said.
The clip was later shared on her Instagram page, where she asked: "Why did he turn out like a serial killer?”
Thankfully Eugenie insisted that looks aren't everything, so hopefully any future partners she has won't have faces that incite fear.
"I think confidence is very attractive and someone who’s funny, personality matters," she said. "After a while, looks fade, and if this is someone who is going to be someone for the future, then you got to make each other laugh and be friends."
One thing's for sure though: Eugenie isn't interested in someone who plays tennis.
She explained: “I would say, definitely, I wouldn’t want to date someone in the tennis world because it would just be so much tennis, I feel like non-stop.
"On the one hand, they would probably relate with you more than anybody, but on the other hand, it’s like my friends. My friends are mostly out of tennis and I like to text or call someone and talk about totally different stuff than tennis because my entire day is tennis, so I feel like the same would apply to dating.”
So, if any non-tennis-playing, non-serial-killing single guys are out there: Eugenie could be the one for you.
