Account executive, 850 KOA; nonprofit leader
I’m so over: People taking their freedom for granted.
Part of my charm: I’m a total people person; I make friends very easily.
Guilty pleasure: I’m kind of a power-shopper. Once a year I go overseas and buy lots of clothes.
Find me here on the weekend: Friday night—Sushi Den, the Capital Grille, or Sushi Hai. Saturday I spend with my family.
Biggest accomplishment: Continuing my parents’ charity work with Handicapped Children of Afghanistan. I go back every year to help the kids in honor of my parents.

What I look for in a significant other: Independence, good values and morals, a little worldliness—a sense of different cultures.
The School Boy

On the bucket list: To attend the World Cup in the U.S.A.
Nickname: Daniel-san, à la Karate Kid.

If I could have one wish: All of our students in the country should be given a more equitable education.
What I look for in a significant other: Someone supportive, kind, and funny who challenges me and is driven by something other than money.
Anne Medina, 29
aka “Fannie Spankings,” burlesque performer/producer/emcee
Can’t live without: My sparkly red lip glitter. And my MP3 player. It’s so archaic, I know.
I’m so over: Low-riding jeans that show off plumber’s crack.
Part of my charm: My ability to fit into any social situation. I can be wild at the bar or hang with Grandma and Grandpa and knit a sweater.
Secret talent: I’m learning to play the banjo.
Once-in-a-lifetime moment: Performing at Red Rocks at sunset with Zebra Junction and comedian Josh Blue.

If I could have a superpower: Being in five places at once.
What I look for in a significant other: Someone who knows a lot of things but isn’t a know-it-all; who can laugh at himself and is curious about travel and art; and who likes cats.

What I look for in a significant other: A humorous, self-confident, thoughtful guy who’s motivated professionally and has aspirations. He knows who he is and where he’s going.
