Listen up, ladies. The man who is considered by many to be the most eligible bachelor in the Olympics has laid out some criteria for you. Ryan Lochte will soon be headed back to the United States with five medals from London and a whole lot of endorsement money. During a recent press conference, he talked about what he is looking for in a partner.

“Honestly, someone that I can trust, I think trust is something really important, and they have to be able to make me smile,” he said. “I want them to be my best friend and my lover at the same time.”

You hear that? That means no gold-diggers. As an Olympic swimmer, Lochte is an understandably busy man. He spends most of his time training, which is why his mother recently said he only has time for one-night stands and not serious relationships. Since he plans to also compete in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil, his schedule for the next four years might look similar to the one he has kept for the last four.

However, Lochte did say last week that he intends to alter his training routine and not work as hard this time around. At 28 years old, he is no longer a young Olympic swimmer and will have to make sure he keeps himself fresh. A number of women out there are hoping that frees up some time for a serious relationship.
