In this month's mag, we sit down with Nadia Forde, Ireland's Next Big Thing.
Finding time with the Dublin singer/actress/model was not easy, what with an album out this summer, regular TV appearances and having hordes of cameras following her around, filming her every move as she prepares to invade the ears and eyeballs of people the world over.
Aside from getting a taste of her first-ever FHM shoot in the gallery above, read on to get her top tips on talking to Irish girls.
RESIST THE URGE TO YELL ‘POTATO!’
"I think it’s funny when guys try to copy the accent but, after the 20th time, stop. And don’t ask me if I’ve met St Patrick or any leprachauns."
DON’T TAKE YOURSELF TOO SERIOUSLY
"The great thing about British guys is that they have a similar sense of humour to us Irish. You can have so much more craic. Sarcasm is lost on Americans."
PUT THE KETTLE ON
"If a guy can make a good hot chocolate or a good cup of tea, amazing. If a guy can cook a Sunday roast, that’s it. I’m done."
REMEMBER THE LITTLE THINGS
"I like the little things. The good morning text message. I love that."
GET A LIFE
"I like a guy that has something of his own going on. Whether he’s chasing a dream or really loves his job, a guy with drive is nice. Once they have that thing that they’re into, that’s so attractive.'
GIVE HER SOME SPACE
"Don’t text me all day long. I have things to do. First thing in the morning – lovely. Last thing at night – lovely. It’s nice to know that they’re thinking of you. The rest of the time – let’s just get on with our day."
MAKE HER LOL
"If you can make me laugh, you have me. I really like dry humour and quick wit."
