Ryan Lochte Says He's Ready To Settle Down


Ryan_lochte_082012_mOlympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte--America's Favorite Swim Babe--probably gets tons of phone numbers wherever he goes, from eligible women looking for a hot date. But Lochte's not looking to date just anyone.

The two-time gold medalist (and burgeoning Hollywood star) says that what he's really looking for in a girl is a sense of humor. "Anyone that can make me smile and make me laugh. That's the key to my heart," he told People magazine. "Now that I'm older, I'm looking to settle down a bit. I'm always looking for the perfect girl," he said.

Maybe that's what his mom meant when she said that he "goes out on a lot of one night stands."

But whomever Lochte ends up with, she should know that she'll always come number two to his first love -- swimming. "My last Olympics, I had a girlfriend -- big mistake," Lochte told The ESPN The Magazine of his first go for gold in Beijing.(Though it's unclear if he's also referring to having a girlfriend limiting his ability to hook up with other Olympians or if he meant having a ladyfriend was a distraction).

Either way, take note!
