On this episode of Straight Up With Stassi, Beau and Stassi discuss what it means to be “thirsty” and answer some listener questions!
Q: What are you guys looking forward to the most when you become parents?
“Oh my God I just got chills, look,” Beau says.
“You did?” Stassi asks.
“Look at my arms! Can’t you see my hair all standing up?” Beau asks.
“Aww, you can answer first then,” Stassi says.
“I’m looking forward to our child loving me more than Stassi,” Beau laughs.
“It’ll love us the same, it’ll just like you more,” Stassi says. “We know, Beau is going to be the fun parent, and I’m going to be the disciplined parent. And that’s fine! I don’t mind teaching discipline. I’m a disciplined person. It’s what I know. I’m not necessarily a fun person. You can’t teach what you don’t know. So I can’t teach a kid to be fun. I can teach a kid to be disciplined. I can teach a kid to be funny.”
“We’re going to have a very fun child,” Beau predicts.
“I hope so,” Stassi says.
“What I’m looking forward to most—” Beau starts to say.
“—is me having an excuse to not got out,” Stassi finished the sentence. “I’m using my child to just bask in my JOMO.”
“This is how you get me to stay home,” Beau laughs. “And I’m fine with that.”
“But you know what?” Stassi asks. “It might happen that when we have a baby, I’m like, ‘You go out.’ Because I want my alone time.”
Q: Do you believe in soulmates, and do you believe in love at first sight?
“Well, I definitely don’t believe in love at first sight because Beau saw my Instagram and said no,” Stassi answers. “That’s not love.”
“I think love at first sight isn’t just physical attraction,” Beau says. “And books and movies about love are all bullshit.”
“I’ve never experienced love at first sight ever in my life,” Stassi says. “I’ve literally never seen someone across the room and been like, ‘I’m done, I’ve fallen for them.’ Do you believe in soulmates? I don’t know, because if you died, that would really suck.”
“Life is not The Notebook,” Beau says. “Hollywood and great novels have made us think this stuff.”
“It makes me feel like you have no control over your life, like it’s just fate, and you’re meant for just this person, and if you meet them, cool, and if you don’t, you don’t,” Stassi explains. “That doesn’t sound fun. I’m in control of my life. I date who I want to date. I will end up with who I want to end up with. Some people say, ‘I think I have lots of soulmates.’ And other people say soulmates are people that you’re destined to be with because you were around them in a past life. Or it could be that God has made soulmates, two people that are supposed to be together. Basically, I don’t think I believe in them.”
