Most memorable childhood moment - For Christmas one year, my sister and I were given a pink Barbie Convertible that we could driver ourselves. Being older and quite in charge, I would make her sit on the back so my best friend could have the front seat. I was such a brat. Don't worry, I grew out of it!
Your best physical feature - Is it inappropriate to say my butt? Yes? Okay, than I'll go with my hair. It's long, full and red. It tends to garner the most attention, minus the aforementioned asset.
Your best quality - I'm surprising. People can never quite pin me down. I'm a tad sassy (in a good way, not a rude way), which keeps people on their toes. I say and do things that are unexpected but always pleasant.
Why are you ready to find Mr. Right? - While this life stage has been fun, I'm ready for the next one. Plus, I've been in love with Mr. Wrong, and I'm over it. Let's just skip to Mr. Right, because who wants the broken heart that goes with Mr. Wrong?
What would your last boyfriend say about you? - He would say I am a lovable klutz, and honestly I am. On one of our first dates, I tried to jump on a love sac and ended up in the fireplace with the heat guard on top of me. No really, that happened. That wasn't my last mishap during our relationship, and I guarantee there will be more to come. He found it endearing, and I know someone else will too.
Most embarrassing moment? - I was living in NYC, and there was an impromptu soccer event where NBA players played pro soccer players. The streets were packed, and the police shut down the entrance with guard rails. I thought I could be sneaky and jump over them quickly before they noticed. I was half way over when the rail tipped with me on it. I crashed, and about 200 people turned to watch. In retrospect, climbing over a railing in a skirt wasn't my best decision.
Greatest accomplishment so far - My volunteer abroud. It was nerve racking to fly completely alone to Russia when I didn't speak the language. I lived with a host family, which was super awkward at first. Teaching English didn't come naturally to me, but I worked at it. By the end, I could tell I was making a difference those kids lives.
What is one of your quirks? - I hate feet. I can't stand when someones feet touch me. Random, I know.
Worst date - To tell the whole story would take too long, so I've opted to put it in list form for easier viewing.
1. Didn't call, but texted to ask me out.
2. Called me from me driveway and said "I'm here."
3. He asked me where to go for dinner.
4. When I said I didn't know, he said "Well I don't know the area, so you are going to have to tell me where to go."
5. He lived 4 miles away.
6. There was a forty min wait until we were seated. So, he asked me what I knew around there. When I said "There's a Barnes and Noble," he said, "Oh you like to read?" in a condescending voice.
7. He made multiple jokes about making me pay.
8. After dinner, he took me back to his place and made me watch Jacka**
9. He squeezed my thigh while making a joke at my expense.
10. He asked for a massage.
11. He offered to give me a massage.
12. He turned on Ultimate Fighting Championship.
13. He dropped me off on the street.
14. He didn't even put the car in park.
I wish this was an embellishment.
Best Date - My best date was to the Phoenix Art Museum. There was a dark room with mirrored walls and LED lights that flickered in colors and reflected off the mirrors; it was disorienting at first. We sat in the corner for an hour watching and laughing at people who would come in, be surprised and try to feel there way out. We discussed art, literature and music. There was an undeniable chemistry. I think sometimes the best dates aren't really about what you're doing; it's about who you are with or the connection you have with them.
What did you study in school and why? Where did you go to college?
I took a business marketing class in high school that I loved. So, that's what I wanted to do at BYU. After taking and despising all the business courses, I took an Advertising class on a whim. I loved it. I changed my major and never looked back.
What is one thing that not a lot of people know about you that you want to share here with the world? - I once had a dream that I was an anthropologist who travelled the world and wrote about dating customs and wedding traditions in different cultures. Since then, I've thought seriously about how to make that happen.
