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

Taylor Griffin, 30

Job: Senior vice president at the Financial Services Forum. Education: BA in political science from Appalachian State University. Hometown: Wilson, North Carolina. Now lives in downtown DC. Hobbies: I’m a huge music fan. I help manage a rock band called Gone by June, and I only wish the 9:30 Club had a season pass. Worst date: That’s between me and Anna Nicole Smith. What are you looking for in a mate? In a word, grace. Ingrid Bergman, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly—they were beautiful and stylish but also clever and good-humored with a mischievous glint. A rare find in this age of Britney Spears. Favorite book: The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. A heartbreaking, beautiful, wrenching, alive, and completely engrossing masterpiece. Favorite date spot: Mendocino Grill. Are you ready to settle down? I plead the fifth.
