20 Fabulous Singles: Amy Overton

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

Amy Overton, 36

Job: Director of government and industry relations, Fannie Mae. Education: BA in international studies from Emory; JD from Catholic University. Hometown: Dallas. Now lives in DC’s Dupont Circle. Dream date: Good food, good wine, and lots of laughter. Or we could fly to Rome and get pizza—that would be cool. Deal breakers: Men who are insecure. Also, they have to like my golden retriever; it’s a package deal. The coolest thing you’ve ever done: I was one of the lawyers on a team that represented a witness in the Clinton impeachment proceedings. A close second was gliding down a mountain in Costa Rica on a zip line. Hidden talent: I make excellent guacamole. Favorite date spot: Montmartre on Capitol Hill or Cashion’s Eat Place in Adams Morgan. Would you ever go on a blind date? I’ve been on about 20 in the past year. I’m thinking of writing a book on dating do’s and don’ts.
