For many Property Brothers fans, this may come as a surprise — Scott does seem to many like something of a romantic. But hey, if Jonathan Scott is single, that means fans still have a chance, right? And the best news yet — Scott recently revealed his personal preferences and rules when it comes to dating. Care to try your hand?

Ready for love again

Though Jonathan Scott has remained relatively quiet on the details of his breakup with Kuznetsov, they did part on amicable terms. Despite that, it wasn’t easy for Scott when he learned that Kuznetsov had found love again.

“I was upset, I won’t lie. I was not ready to date. It wasn’t even on my radar,” Scott told People. “But I’m a realist, and I knew that it was not for me to say when and who she would date.”

Scott went on to add, “Regardless of what we had, I’ve come to terms with the fact that we were not right as life partners. Though we don’t speak regularly, we are on good terms and both know we are there if needed.”

However, it seems as if Scott is ready to date again. “I’m very blessed in a lot of ways. I can buy what I want and I can go anywhere in the world. But at the end of the day, coming home to that one person that you know has your back, there’s no better feeling,” said Scott to People.

Keeping it personal

Before you try to make a move on Scott, you’ve got to know that he prefers to keep things face-to-face. Scott has already turned down offers to star on The Bachelor three times. “I’ve been asked twice to go on The Bachelor — and once in Canada as well —and I was like, ‘It would literally be my nightmare to be put on display and dated out. It’s the opposite of anything I have ever wanted,” Scott told People.

Additionally, Scott has expressed that he is not a fan of dating apps, preferring to keep it real. “My friends always say, ‘Oh you have to try it,’” said Scott. “But I’m like, ‘No.’ There’s nothing in me that wants to do that. I mean, yes, people can find love on those apps, but for me, no.”

Jonathan Scott’s big rules

So what is Scott looking for in a lover? For starters, it’s certainly not self-absorption. Scott has admitted to creeping on the social media profiles of women he’s interested in — who doesn’t? However, he doesn’t appreciate too many selfies. “If someone’s profile has more than 20 percent selfies, I won’t date them,” says Scott.

According to Scott, he also needs to be with someone who enjoys phsyical activities. “Hiking, scuba diving. I just love getting out and doing things.”

In addition, any future lovers have gotta be dog people. “I don’t trust people who don’t like dogs,” he says. “How could you not love a creature that is always excited to see you?”

Two more requirements? Independence, and an outgoing nature. No wallflowers here. “The person who sits in the corner would never work for me,” says Scott.

So what do you think, are you down to try your luck with Jonathan Scott? Who knows, you may be able to get a house renovation or an HGTV deal out of the relationship, if you play your cards right!
