Philly2Philly.com's Most Eligible Singles for July


With summer in full swing and bikini season upon us, what could be any hotter than two hot blonde singles for July?!

First up, we have Sarah Wise, who is a dealer relations manager and a lover of Buddakan, El Vez, almost every sport (where she is playing or watching them) including the Pittsburgh Steelers (you’ll have to ask her about that). Sarah knows what she wants in a guy and so read below to see if have what it takes to be her main man!

Next up, we have Scott Green, a Southern gentleman and Pharmaceutical Account Manager, who digs Pats and Gino’s for his cheesesteaks, The Bishop’s Collar in his hood, Philadelphia sports teams (maybe he can convince Sarah to convert like he did), and smart/funny girls with zero drama. Good luck with that, Scottie!

Does this picture perfect blonde couple have what it takes to be the next “it” Philadelphia couple or do you like one of these hotties for yourself or something else? Email me at helene@philly2philly.com  if you’d like to get in touch with either one of them. And please keep the nominations coming for future months! Join us for our next Wednesday SIPS happy hour on July 28th at 6pm at Philly's latest hotspot Tweed  (114 South 12th Street between Chestnut and Sansom) if you’d like to meet Scott or Sarah or if you’d just like to hang out with some fun people over a few cocktails! Here are the interviews for our picks for July.

Happy Summer!

First name: SarahPhilly2Philly July Single Sarah Wise

Occupation: Dealer Relations Manager– Alarm Funding Associates

Age: 27

Current location: King of Prussia

Favorite restaurant in the city: Buddakan- shrimp dumplings are the best!

Favorite bar: El Vez

Current cell phone: Blackberry Bold

Hobbies/interests: I am a very active person and hate sitting still. I will try almost anything at least once- probably not sky diving though. I love being outside, boating, beach, skiing, hiking, swimming, or biking. Any sporting event (no matter who is playing) I will watch- except golf. “People watching” is very entertaining to me. My family and friends are the most important people to me so spending time with them whether out to dinner, traveling, movies, going out on the town, etc is a must for me. I participate in triathlons and enjoy competitive sports. This could be a deal breaker to some but I am not a cook BUT I am learning. My day, week, life is very busy so finding time to cook is sometimes hard especially because going out to eat is one of my favorite things to do. Learning new things is on my list of things “to do” I would like to become more familiar with photography, interior decorating, and the stock market.

Favorite sports team: I am not originally from Philadelphia so my favorite football team is the Pittsburgh Steelers (please do not hate me) but every other sports team is Philadelphia all the way!!

Must haves in a mate: I do not want to categorize myself as picky but I do know what I am looking for in a man. I need to have someone that can make me laugh and has a goofy sense of humor but at the same time knows when to be serious. A man that is confident but not cocky. Someone who knows what they want, can be aggressive, and take charge. I tend to be attracted to tall, dark, and handsome men. I am 5’8” so having someone overpower me is sexy. I do not live in the city so having a source of transportation is a must. I find it attractive when a man is close to his family and friends. I take care of myself, so having someone that enjoys being active is important as well. One of my most important “must haves” is being understanding and excepting that I am an independent woman. I enjoy going out with my girlfriends and I am a loyal person, so if you can’t handle me hanging out with friends on occasion and trusting me, then it will never work.

Dating Dealbreakers: I feel like there are exceptions to every rule but if I would have to list some of my major dealbreakers they would be: smoking, lives with parents, unemployed, someone who is not social, judgmental, who has a girlfriend or married (silly to have to have to say this but you never know), dependant on me (no mama’s boy’s please), doesn’t go to the gym, or does not take care of themselves.

Interesting Fact about you: I lived on the West Coast for a year in Scottsdale, AZ and was a Health and P.E teacher for 7 and 8th graders. Teaching is my first love and would like to return to it someday. J


First name: Scott Philly2Philly July Single Scott Green

Occupation: Pharmaceutical Account Manager

Age: On special for 37.99

Current location: Fairmount/Art museum area

Favorite restaurant in the city: Pat's AND Gino's. Top that.

Favorite bars: Bishops Collar for beers, Franklin Mortgage for cocktails

Current cell phone: Crackberry

Hobbies/interests: (1) I enjoy meeting new people; (2) having drinks with friends; (3) enjoying Philly’s great restaurants; and (4) working out to counteract #’s (2) and (3).

Favorite sports teams: Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, Flyers, and my college team, the South Carolina Gamecocks (just became national champs in baseball).

Must haves in a mate: Funny, smart, and no drama.

Dating Dealbreakers: Once, on a first date, my date got extremely intoxicated and puked multiple times in the bar/restaurant. That was a deal-breaker (relationship and goodnight kiss killer as well). Other than that, I’m pretty easy-going as long as you don't have a mustache like Tom Selleck.

Interesting Fact about you: Although I have a southern accent, this does not mean that I have ever been chased by a fat sheriff on COPS, chew tobacco, own a velvet painting of Elvis, attend NASCAR races, and marry/date my own cousins.
