If you found yourself swooning over Taylor Zakhar Perez while watching Netflix's The Kissing Booth 2, you definitely weren't the only one. The 28-year-old heartthrob plays a charming new student named Marco, and yes, that really was his beautiful singing voice you heard in the movie. Though he's made appearances on Scandal, Young & Hungry, and iCarly, The Kissing Booth 2 marks his first starring role, and it probably won't be his last.

Now let's get down to the important stuff, shall we? Is Taylor single? Even though fans are shipping Taylor and Joey King (sorry, she's already taken), Taylor is currently single. In an interview with Glamour, the actor stated that he isn't dating anyone at the moment. He also revealed what he's looking for in a partner. "I love adventurous people, someone that says yes all the time. I paddle board and hike and surf, so I feel like my friends are my type. I'm a huge proponent of dating friends or people you've had heart-to-hearts with before you become intimate. Emotional intimacy is way more important to me than sexual intimacy," he explained. "I think self-awareness is big. And not filtering your thoughts to make me feel better. Respect. Also, a willingness to get out of your comfort zone, or at least just have a conversation about it. I'll try anything twice." OK, good to know!

  • If Your Workouts Look Different Every Day, This 10-Minute Cooldown Is For You

    No two days are alike when it comes to my fitness routine, except for my cooldowns. Since I rotate between barre, Pilates, yoga, and jogs to prevent workout boredom, I need a one-size-fits-all cooldown to keep me feeling good. "Simplicity is the key [to any cooldown]," Holly Strickland - a NASM-certified personal trainer and franchise partner with Burn Boot Camp Naples - says. In her opinion, it only takes 5-10 minutes to help with recovery, soreness, and injury prevention. That's why the expert's 10-minute cooldown plan is my go-to - there are really no excuses as to why I can't make time to do it after any sweat. Strickland says it can be used for anything from running to leg day. "During this portion of the workout, we are slowing [the] heart rate down and stretching out the muscles we used during the workout," Strickland explains. See for yourself how effective, easy, and adaptable Strickland's cooldown is by completing one to two rounds of the stretching routine, ahead. Spend 45-90 seconds on each movement with no rests in-between - unless your body starts telling you otherwise. Related: Not Sure How to Cool Down After a Workout?
