The American Idol runner-up, 25, reveals his ABCs of dating.

APPROACH
"I was always jealous of guys who can go up to girls and ask for their numbers. It's never been my bag. I'm confident, but to me I was never the guy who would ask some girl out at the bar. It's kind of intrusive. If I'm attracted to someone and have built a rapport with her it's a lot easier."

BOYFRIEND BEHAVIOR
"I'm the dozen roses kind of guy. I've done some serenading. In an intimate setting singing to a girl is beautiful."

CAUTION SIGNS
"I'm not a fan of carcinogens and I'm not a fan of lazy people. If a girl's sloppy, that's just a sign of laziness. I'm definitely neat. I'm good at organizing."
