Is Laz Alonso In Search of a Girlfriend?

Cuban ethnicity actor Laz has always been a dream man for women. However, it seems like he is still single and searching for a girlfriend.

In an interview posted by Madamenoire on 11th December 2013, Laz revealed himself to be single as the woman he has often dated negatively responds to this sedentary behavior. He said,

Let me tell you; I’m single right now, but when I’m dating a girl, they usually kick me out of their kitchen because as they’re cooking, I’m cleaning up behind them and they’re like, ‘Stop! Just get out. Let me finish.’ And I’m like, ‘Team work baby. Team work makes the dream work. And they’re like Nah nah nah – get out of here.’ 

Regardless of his failed relationship, according to a source, the star attended the Essence International Festival in 2014 and actively participated in the dating game contests with all the participants.

But unfortunately, it looks like the star enjoyed the festival but failed to find a perfect girlfriend for himself.

Although he has given justice to all the characters he has performed to date, in reality, he seems to be a very secretive man and a quiet fellow. 

He may have a girlfriend, but maybe he doesn't want to reveal it to the media, so he has kept it hidden to date.

In an interview with Madamenoire on 11th December 2013, the actor strongly condemned choosing a wife from the celebrity world, but he also gave an accurate explanation of being compatible regardless of the woman's background, saying:

"You know what? I don’t really date celebs. I don’t date celebs, to be honest with you. And it’s not that I put them in a category called ‘Celebs,’ it’s just that to me it’s all about the genuine connection it doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, if I like you and I meet you and you like me and we click, that’s it. We have to click. If I see someone on the screen  that alone doesn’t do anything for me.”

Even though he hasn't revealed his current dating status, he has previously discussed his ideal wife.

Laz admitted to not having a wife till then in an interview with Diary of a First Time Mom. He said he has yet to find a girlfriend with whom he can spend his life.
