Meet Our 2011 Top Singles



 

It can be sidelong glance, a wink, a smile or just “hello” that makes you think, “Hey, that person is flirting with me!” And, in a heartbeat, you’re also thinking, “Hey, I want to get to know him (or her!) better.”

Eighteen “best-catch-not-yet-taken” bachelors and bachelorettes have agreed to make the first move and share their photos, a little chit chat and a very short — only six words — biography with our readers.

If you see someone you’d like to get to know better — or you just want to liven up the hot summer months with a fun night out — join us at the Hotel Duval for Tallahassee Magazine’s Top Singles bash on Saturday, July 16. All our featured singles have agreed to participate in a date auction during the festivities. And all money raised during the bidding will be donated to the charity of each single’s choice. Last year’s inaugural event raised more than $22,000 for 13 nonprofit organizations.
