Current location: Philadelphia (but will always be a Jersey Girl at heart)

Favorite restaurant in the city: Buddakan

Favorite bar: Anywhere with great ambiance, Patron, and a tasty extra dirty martini

Current cell phone: Blackberry

Hobbies/interests: traveling, new experiences, interior design, working out, investing, reading, sports – especially football, and above all – spending time with my family and friends.

Favorite sports team: The Birds…of course

Must haves in a mate: Must definitely be of the opposite sex – ha. In all seriousness, I’m looking for someone who can stimulate me mentally, physically, and emotionally. Intelligence and ambition are the sexiest qualities a man can possess – along with being passionate, honest, genuine, and having the ability to make me laugh.

Has drama or baggage (we all have a past but it’s a past for a reason),

Bad teeth

Interesting Fact about you: In high school, I was an all-state, all-American soccer player and actually got recruited to be the kicker for one our football games. I’ve been also known to be called Ms. Bob Villa because I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty and am proud of the fact that I’m pretty handy.

Age: 30

Current location: Philadelphia

Favorite restaurant in the city: I have been to a ton of restaurants in the city but I always go back to Penang, love the mango chicken!

Current cell phone: Blackberry (realizing that Verizon is never going to get the iPhone)

Hobbies/interests: Outdoor drinking, skiing, eating out in the city, and I'm really good at sleeping.

Favorite sports team: Eagles

Must haves in a mate: She's gotta be smarter than me (which isn't hard) and be up for anything. My friend keeps telling me that high

maintenance isn't my style but I'm trying to learn that the hard way.

Dating Dealbreakers: Unsolicited advice drives me crazy.

Interesting Fact about you: I work from home mainly, so I travel a lot to keep myself entertained. I usually go skiing in Vail for the

winter and Sea Isle for the summer.
