The lucky marine sergeant who took Kim Kardashian as his date to the Marine Corps Ball last week is still flying high and not just because of the reality starlet’s curve-hugging red dress!

After escorting Kim to the Ball and having one truly lovely evening, Sgt. Martin Gardner tells Celebuzz “there’s nothing” he can’t do.

“We talked about everything from our personal lives to our professional lives,” he said. “Talking with her was like talking to one of my friends. She was so cool and laid back.”

Martin, who contacted Kim’s publicist earlier this year about a date to the event, says the reality star was his “only choice” for the special occasion.

He also gushed about how Kim stuck around for the entire event, sitting through dinner and guest speakers, and posed for photos with other marines.

Sounds like Kim has one serious admirer — but there’s no need for Kanye West to get jealous just yet.

“We talked about her and [boyfriend] Kanye [West],” Martin said. “She really loves that guy.”
