He believes friendship is the first step to everything."
Los Angeles, Aug 30 - Actor-rapper Nick Cannon, who has recently separated from wife Mariah Carey, prefers to be with women who know exactly what they want.
Whether he is ready to move on or not, is still unknown, but he seems to be clear about the kind of woman he'd like to be with, reports huffingtonpost.com.
Talking about his relationship needs, Cannon said he prefers a strong woman.
I like somebody who knows what they want and getting right to it. That makes a lot of sense for me. And so I welcome that, or 'welcomed' that, he added.
The 33-year-old also doled out advice on how to ask a woman out on a date.
You never want to make it about the individual. You say, 'Hey, what are you and your friends doing? I want to come hang out with y'all.' Or, 'Let's all go together.' So that takes all the pressure off of it of this whole one on one conversation, he said.
He believes friendship is the first step to everything.
Everybody that I was probably ever serious with it always started off like, 'Yo, let's just be cool,' and then it turned into something else, he said.
