Being single in February can feel like being Jewish at Christmas. So each February, Yellow Scene Magazine takes a few of its pages to celebrate the singletons in our community, proving once and for all that life, unattached and unfettered, can be pretty awesome. So without further ado, here are five of Boulder County’s most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes.
Hobbies: Various creative endeavors, meeting the demands of these creatures that insist on calling me Mom.
Three words to describe you: Creative, fun and thoughtful.
What are you looking for in a partner: A man who doesn’t mind me waking him in the middle of the night with a dumb question and can make an affectionate trip through Home Depot. Bonus round: handy and tall.
Song that describes your love life: “Shake It Out” by Florence + The Machine. Ideally, I would like a remix version that features Jay-Z breaking it down…in a cheerful way.
Philosophy on dating: Be as open-minded as possible. Like trying vegetables—it may not sound like something you would enjoy, but it could end up being your new favorite thing. Or at least good in a salad.
Describe your last date: Unnecessarily long, lacking-of-spark, good drinks though.
Celebrity crush: Jon Favreau
Deal breaker: Insensitivity
When you’re not working, you want to be: Playing, laughing, relaxing…or something else that ends in “ing.”
Place we’d find you on a Friday night: In my basement training my pet dolphin. Or at The Pumphouse.
You have a glass in front of you…what’s in it? What’s in it is ice water. What I wish was in it is a giant quadruple-caffeinated Coke with crushed ice and a lime. And maybe a crazy straw.
Last book you read: Under great pressure, I tried 50 Shades of Grey. I got about 140 pages in before I had to bail. It may have ruined books for me forever.
