Dating Unlocked: Derek's Journey through Apps, Pasta Classes, and Kinky Carnival Adventures

Embark on a journey with Derek, as Dating Unlocked unveils his candid reflections on dating apps, quirky first date preferences, and the unexpected twists of love amid pasta-making classes and a kinky carnival adventure.


Have dating apps made forming connections easier or worse?

Easier, I think. Online dating makes it much easier to identify potential lovers or partners based on common interests, lifestyles, and sexual compatibility.


If you could choose one superpower to have on a first date, what would it be, and how would you use it?

The power to heal all of my new partner's old wounds and traumas...


If you were to create a perfect date that doesn't involve a traditional dinner or a movie, what would it look like?

I'd extend an invitation to an Italian cooking class. Together, like Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in "Ghost," we'd sculpt homemade pasta, sip on red wine, and feast on our creation... Hmm, well, hoping they wouldn't be gluten intolerant! lol

What are three red flags on a date?

- Believes in astrology to the point of scheduling dates based on Mercury's retrograde.

- Takes food from my plate without asking... "Derek doesn't share food!"

- Films an impromptu live stream with their followers in the middle of our date


In what ways has participating in Dating Unlocked changed or influenced your perspective on love and relationships?

Being on Dating Unlocked made me see how crucial it is to just be real and talk openly. Meeting all kinds of people reminded me that it's awesome to celebrate our differences and show our true selves. It's not about trying to be what someone expects, but more about finding someone who digs and complements the real me.


How would you describe your dating style and approach to forming connections with others?

My dating approach is like a puzzle enthusiast tackling a new challenge. I get a kick out of figuring out what makes someone tick and discovering all those little quirks and details that make them interesting. Each date adds another piece to the puzzle, and the fun part is just watching our connection slowly come together...


What motivated you to join Dating Unlocked, and what are you hoping to gain from this experience?

I believe that life is about embracing new experiences, and what better way to do that than in the spotlight of a dating show? I was hoping to gain not just a romantic connection but a deeper understanding of myself and what I truly value in a partner.


Can you share a memorable or unique dating experience from your time on the show?

Having a blast with both Michelle and Bonez during the kinky carnival is something I won't forget. Even though in the end I felt a stronger romantic connection with Michelle, at that moment, I just saw two awesome, fun-loving people I'd enjoy doing all sorts of activities with... including making dildo throwing an official sport lol.


How important is physical attraction in forming a connection, and how do you balance it with other factors when making decisions about potential partners?

Although physical attraction is crucial, in my opinion, a genuine and lasting connection requires more than just the physical. It's a balancing act with other factors like shared values, communication styles, and emotional compatibility. You need to find that sweet spot where both physical and emotional chemistry align, basically.


What are three green flags on a date?

- Overall respectful behavior towards me, including punctuality

- Asks me questions and doesn't just talk about themselves for hours

- A little nervousness on the first date is my number one green flag… It shows me they care, and they genuinely want it to go well.
