Helene Eksterowicz from The Bachelor and Philly2Philly.com search for Philadelphia's most eligible singles


The rose petals have wilted and dried up from my appearance and engagement on The Bachelor, but I still remain optimistic about love…well maybe cautiouslyHelene Bachelor optimistic is more accurate. Even when finding true love is difficult for me, I still find pleasure in trying to help my friends and others find their soul mates or at least a date worthy of their time.

With Valentines’ Day upon us, singles all over are cringing about spending another love holiday alone in their pj’s watching sappy love stories on tv while consuming mass amounts of chocolates and ice cream right out of the container. Although most of the time this scene sounds perfect, Valentine's Day can make it a bit depressing.

I want to put the love back in the City of Brotherly love and that’s why I’m working with Philly2Philly in rolling out a new dating column featuring Philadelphia’s most eligible singles. The best part is they’re nominated by you. We all know that wonderful girl or guy who is well rounded, successful, attractive, funny, etc. but is single and we don’t know why. So, here’s our chance to get them out of their shell and let the world know how amazing they are.

You don’t have to be a supermodel, famous athlete, or a millionaire to be featured in this section. That's not what we're about. We’re looking for that unique everyday person with something interesting or unique to offer.

Here's how it works:

Please email me your submissions for February’s Most Eligible in Philly, Jersey, or Delaware. One male and one female will be picked and showcased during the entire month. Each month, those two people will be present to mingle and hopefully find true love or hopefully have a good time with some new friends and maybe find a date or two. The local event for February where our two eligibles will be featured will be the Hearts for Haiti Masquerade and Valentines’ Charity Bash at Sumo Luxe Lounge at 12th and Samson St. on February 12th, 2010 at 9:30pm. This is a charity event put together by friends and $5 minimum donations are suggested. All donations at the door will go to charity, Save Haiti Saturday. There will be fabulous door prizes and drink specials along with great company and many singles, including our two eligibles for February!  Many thanks go to Delfrisco’s, Raw, Holt’s Cigar Company, Just Dogs Gourmet, Nuts to You , Vintage Wine Bar and Bistro , and Hana & Posy boutique and florist for their generous contributions for the fabulous door prizes!   

So hold off on housing the chocolates for now and please email me your submissions. Hopefully cupid’s arrow will strike for a few of our lucky viewers! :)
