Meet Nick Mason. This senior SAE from Eagan, Minnesota (Go Wildcats) is ready for love, and of course to find #her. Not only is this self-proclaimed One Direction superfan #welltraveled from spending a semester in Europe (#CFL), but he also aims to #lethishairdown as much as he can, similar to one of his idols, Boris Johnson. Now all he needs is a girl by his side.
Why do you think you're fit to be Bachelor of the Week?
Well, I'm very single so I definitely qualify on that front, and I actually applied to be on The Bachelor this year so I feel like this is a natural first step before I take my bachelor status upwards (unless this finds me a girlfriend).
Mase, Lit Mason
What's your idea of the perfect date?
Any date I could get. But if I had to pick it would definitely involve a rooftop--huge rooftop guy.
What’s your favorite abroad memory?
Have to say meeting the hot wine girl in Prague. If there ever was a time that I believed in love, it was that moment. Sure, there was a language barrier, but I could tell we were meant to be. I never saw her again, but I'll never forget her. The only words we ever said to each other were, "Can I have a hot wine please?" and, "Thanks."
I also have to mention that going to the Cliffs of Moher was incredible. It was a great opportunity to gaze longingly out at the horizon wondering if #she was out there--I was searching for Mo(her).
Does real love exist?
I used to believe in love, but after my recent experiences I'm starting to give up on it. I haven't completely ruled it out, but the longer I go without it and the more sad songs I hear, the less real I think it is. Going abroad was supposed to help me improve my chances of finding love, but here I am typing up my answers for Bachelor of the Week.
What's the worst breakup story you have?
One time I ~casually~ asked Kari Kitrell to date like any respectable gentleman would--via Snapchat direct message. She told me no. After a few sad songs I eventually got over it and we are still friends. Seriously, I'm so over it. Seriously. Stop asking.
Where do you hope to find #her?
Definitely don't have a preference of a location to find #her. It could be anywhere: one of the local watering holes, the CSOM atrium, in a class, game day at Sally's. I know that no matter where we meet I'll be happy.
Best songs to play on a date?
A date is obviously the perfect time to break out your best 1D jams. First date you gotta keep it a little more casual so you probably want to play a little "Night Changes" to keep it upbeat and get the mood right.
When you've been dating for longer is when you really want to break out the power jams. I'm thinking some "You and I" to really let them know how you feel and probably "Little Things" too to really show them how important they are.
If you could ask a One Direction member any question, what would it be?
One question is pretty tough but I mean, I'd probably have to ask Niall if he wants to be best friends, and after that maybe see if I could bring the band back together and replace Zayn. If Bachelor of the Week doesn't help me find #her, joining One Direction definitely would.
If you were in a srat, which one would you be in?
Hmmmm definitely can't win no matter what I answer, but I'll say Kappa.
Best quality you look for in a girl?
Someone that has a good sense of humor and doesn’t take themselves to seriously.
Biggest turn-off from a girl?
When they don’t text me back/don’t like me/don’t follow me on Instagram.
Three words that describe your love life?
It. Doesn’t. Exist.
Go-to pick up line?
Hey! Wanna date? Probably one reason why I'm on Bachelor of the Week...
What do you hope to get out of this Bachelor of the Week fame?
A girlfriend, duh. Or at least someone to come on a date with me (ladies--feel free to message me if this is of interest to you).
You can find Lit Mason during the week "at the prestigious Curtis L. Carlson School of Management" and on weekends you can likely find him belting out some jams at Blarney's karaoke. Are you going to be #her? Let's find out.
