On the way he sees women:
"When I say I'm going to take care of a woman, I don't mean physically or sexually or romantically. I'm going to take care of her emotionally and spiritually. I'm going to take care of her in all ways. I take a lot of pride in that today."

On learning a thing or two from his marriage ending in 2007:
"Since our divorce, we've because pretty good at working together, and we are also raising our beautiful 11-year-old daughter. You know, you don't sign up for a divorce when you get married. It's very painful. But it's taught me a great deal about myself."

On the person he wants to be:
"I want to be a man who is truthful and who won't let pride get in the way of my ripping myself open to my partner and saying, 'Here I am. This is me.' I feel there's something powerful when a man reaches a point in his life when he an be completely vulnerable."
