"Online Dating Rituals of the American Male" Star Finds Love on Facebook
(NEW YORK) -- Each week, Bravo's latest docu-series, Online Dating Rituals of the American Male, follows two men as they hunt for love online. Brian Dreams, who was featured in a highly controversial episode in which he dismissed a girl because he claimed she had "big knee caps," tells ABC News Radio that after he finished filming, he found love...online.
"[I] can't jump to anything too quickly, but I think she's kind of like a dream girl," the 33-year-old artist says of his girlfriend. "She's from Minnesota and I always wanted a supermodel, but with like a different type of mentality than the models [in L.A.]"
Dreams said he didn't use any of the usual online tools to find love, such as Match.com, eHarmony.com, or even Tinder. Instead, he found his girlfriend of three months using Facebook. Dreams said he had a strategy to find love.
"I would just go on there, onto Facebook, and I would go through my friend's profiles. And then I would see girls that I thought were attractive under their friends," he explains. "And so then I would write to the girls, and say, 'Oh, you know Billy. Billy's a friend of mine.'"
Dreams says it only took one friend to find his girlfriend.
Dreams is still fighting backlash from his episode of Online Dating. On the series, Dreams earned a reputation for being a mean-spirited playboy when he told one date she was ill-proportioned and had "big knee caps." Dreams says he can see how people would think he is a jerk, but really he was just hurt.
"That was one side of me when I was going through some tough times, and there's a lot that went behind what I dished out," he says. "I was in a negative place. So that's not me all the time. That was me at that time."
"And do I wish I could take some of those things back? Yeah, probably," Dreams continues. "...I don't want to offend anybody, but obviously I guess you'd have to say I did."
Bravo's Online Dating Rituals of the American Male airs Thursday nights at 10 p.m. Eastern.
