20 Fabulous Singles: Amanda Walke

They’re smart, funny, successful, and available—for now

Amanda Walke, 29

Job: Primary examiner at the US Patent and Trademark Office. Education: BS in chemistry from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Hometown: Havre de Grace, Maryland. Now lives in Arlington. Hobbies: Scuba diving, dancing, and working out. I’m also active in the Junior League. Dream date: Road-tripping to Chapel Hill, then having dinner and drinks at Top of the Hill and going to a UNC-Duke basketball game. Deal breaker: A guy who doesn’t know the difference between a touchback and a touchdown. Coolest thing you’ve done in the last year: Last fall, I met a Supreme Court justice at a dinner, and somehow we ended up discussing the latest fashion trends. Last book you read: The World Is Flat by Thomas Friedman. Shortcomings: I tend to be pretty stubborn. But while I may not be swayed by them one bit, I really make an effort listen to other’s opinions.
