Seeking: An adorable, comedic guy … kind of like Ryan Reynolds
Growing up, Skruba saw herself in Helen Hunt’s Darcy Maguire in “What Women Want”: “Underneath all the career ambition, she was just a hopeless romantic,” she says. Now, the Gold Coaster works in marketing and business development for the 900 North Michigan Shops and is looking for a man with ambition and charisma … who doesn’t try to make small talk about the weather.

Originally from: Michigan
On my bucket list: Take my parents to Australia. They sent me there to study abroad and it’s been on the top of my list to show them the experience they gave me.
Favorite food: Caprese salad. Weird, I know.
Favorite movie: “Vanilla Sky”
Bad habit I wish I could break: Twirling my lashes while I’m thinking
Good to know: Finding “the one” is simple for me, “it” is there or it isn’t. I just want to feel like my best self around him and for him to feel the same. Whoever “he” is, he’s out there looking for the same thing as me: someone to be by each other’s side, living out all of life’s adventures.
Seeking: A man who looks like Kit Harington … or Eddie Redmayne
A dancer, choreographer and teacher with Thodos Dance Chicago, Cartwright is looking for a guy who’s confident, compassionate, intelligent and funny. That’s a tall order, but the way to his heart is simple: “Give me a premium, medium-rare patty, fully dressed with blue cheese and a side of crispy, salty fries with basil-garlic aioli, and I will be yours forever!”

Originally from: Madisonville, Kentucky
Binge-worthy TV show: “Game of Thrones.” It has everything: drama, comedy, sex, violence, politics and fantasy. The show is both intellectually stimulating and visually brilliant.
Who would play me in a movie: Edward Norton. He is my celebrity doppelgänger, but also because he plays dark comedy really well and any movie about me would definitely be a dark comedy.
Pet peeve: When people misuse or misspell your/you’re and to/two/too
What makes me happiest: I am happiest in the 20-30 minutes right after a really good performance. When I get off stage I’m full of endorphins and on a high like no other. It’s such a rush to be onstage, in front of hundreds or thousands of people, giving all your emotion and energy in that moment. And when it’s over there is a sense of euphoria.
Seeking: A man with a good smile
Not yet 30, she’s already the president of her own sports and entertainment public relations firm, Double Coverage PR, and owner of Lincoln Park shop Soñodar Boutique (plus she’s mastered salsa dancing). She’s looking for a Cristiano Ronaldo look-alike with confidence and the ability to laugh at himself.

Last book I read: Normal Gets You Nowhere by Kelly Cutrone
Indulgence: Doughnuts and peach Bellinis at RPM Italian
Seeking: A woman with big eyes and an active lifestyle
Murray moved here from Vancouver, Canada, just a few months ago to become executive chef at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, a gig he says is his greatest accomplishment. His biggest fear? “People not liking my food,” he says. We’ll vouch for him: It’s fantastic.
More from Sean:
Neighborhood: West Loop
Who I most look up to: Chef Ned Bell, who I worked with at YEW in Vancouver. He is a very motivating and inspiring mentor, and I have the utmost respect for him and his career.
Celebrity crush: Scarlett Johansson
On my bucket list: A ’60s muscle car
What I’d bring to a deserted island: iPod, TRX and a big stylish straw hat
Who would play me in a movie: Hugh Jackman, as I share his sense of humor and Wolverine is Canadian.
