20 Fabulous Singles: Kate Searby

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

Kate Searby, 24

Job: Corporate-communications intern at Edelman public relations Education: BA in history from Duke. Hometown: Atherton, California (a suburb of San Francisco). Now lives in DC’s Adams Morgan. Dream date: Hiking or sailing on a beautiful day and ending somewhere outdoors chatting over a bottle of wine. Deal breaker: Men who are rude to the waiter or parking-lot attendant will never get a second date. Worst date: I knew this one was doomed when I was telling this guy about the fantastic book I had just finished and he looked at me blankly and said, “Yeah, I don’t really read … anything.” What are you looking for in a mate? Someone with a big heart who cares about others and works to make his community and the world a better place. A mate that would join the Peace Corps with me and go to Latin America or Africa would be awesome. Proudest achievement: Completing a nine-day trek—with a giant backpack—in the Himalayan Mountains in Nepal. Favorite date spot: I love the ambience at Chi-Cha Lounge, especially in the back rooms. You can really hear and get to know the person while eating delicious Cuban food and listening to a range of music.
