Seeking: A passionate, intelligent girl with ambitions of her own
A strategy consultant by day, this adventurous Near North Side guy rides horses and motorcycles when he’s not working. “I can also walk on my hands,” he adds, joking: “But I don’t get any benefit from this quirk.”
More from Khalil:
Celebrity crush: Jessica Kahawaty
His binge-worthy TV shows: “The West Wing” and “Scrubs”
Guilty pleasure: Fresh baked chocolate chip cookies — they are my kryptonite.
Bad habit he wishes he could break: Saying sorry for no reason
What makes him most proud: My eight-year and continued commitment with UNICEF. I have organized concerts, fashion shows, silent auctions and foodie events in an effort to raise awareness and funds to help every child have a better chance at a safe and healthy life.
Seeking: A man with passion and creativity, who is done “frat drinking”
Before returning to her hometown Chicago and eventually settling in Skokie, the marketing maven spent 10 years in LA dating all the wrong guys, she says. She believes in love at first sight — she answered an emphatic “yes!” to that question — and in the power of connecting others.
More from Lucy:
Go-to karaoke song: It’s best for everyone if I do NOT sing.
Turn ons: Talent. Creativity. I think what attracts me the most is when someone is passionate about something. It almost doesn’t matter what it is: music, writing, their work, family, their dog
Pet peeves: People who lie — or use bad grammar.
Her binge-worthy TV shows: Don’t be scared: I pretty much always have the ID channel on in the background.
On her bedside table: Honestly? A book, eye cream and an extra large jar of peanut butter with a spoon.
Seeking: A self-assured but nerdy guy with a solid sense of humor — and a beard
A beauty writer living in Lincoln Square, she’s equally happy climbing Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa — which she did last year — binge watching shows like “How to Get Away with Murder,” and taste-testing all the mezcal in the city. Look familliar? She appeared on FOX’s “Love Connection” earlier this week.
More from Nicole:
Celebrity crush: Daniel Kaluuya is a total dreamboat.
Turn-offs: Arrogance, bad breath, poor grammar. Game players need not apply.
Who would play her in a movie: Probably singer/songwriter Tamia. We have some of the same facial expressions, but I can’t sing anything like her!
Biggest fear: My biggest fear is failure — I’m just not sure by whose standard.
What makes her most proud: It took me about five years to book my very first television segment and become a beauty contributor for POPSUGAR. There were so many people who told me that I wouldn’t. But I did. BOOM.
