Why should you bid on me?
I'm a real estate agent, so I can probably find you the best deal on housing in Arlington. I'm a great dancer, even in 6 inch heels. I bake cupcakes. I'm super punctual and keep a really organized calendar, so I'll never be the reason that you're late. I'll be your gym buddy. I'm incredibly motivated to goals that I've set for myself, so you know I'm 4 real.
Favorite make-out song: The whole Blink 182 Discography
Favorite quote: “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." - Oscar Wilde.

Why do you want to be auctioned? Ego boost

Why should you bid on me? I’m a blast in a glass

Tom Wilson, 29
Why do you want to be auctioned? I’m told the best parts of life happen outside your comfort zone, and this is about a mile outside of mine. And we get to support a great cause to boot!
Favorite pick-up line: Wanna come back to my place and steal my favorite hoodie?
Ideal companion: Short, blonde, playful, fiercely loyal, always excited to see me, obsessed with tennis balls, ready and willing to protect me from the vacuum cleaner. .
Why should you bid on me? I’m 6’2, gainfully employed, and shower regularly. I’m pretty fast and loose with my Netflix password. When I pump gas I usually get it to stop on the whole dollar on the first try. I currently have a 48-foot slot-car track in my living room. I usually take cold showers so you don’t have to worry about using all the hot water. I can recite Bill Pullman's speech at the end of Independence Day from memory.
Favorite make-out song: Sandstorm
"I suppose if we couldn’t laugh at things that don't make sense, we couldn't react to a lot of life." –Hobbes
Date: We’ll start the night with a glass of champagne at the Observation Deck tower in Rosslyn. We’ll recruit a stranger to take pictures for us with the sun setting over DC in the background. Then we’ll head over to Southwest and enjoy dinner at Del Mar on the waterfront. More ‘gramable photography will likely ensue. Finally we’ll stroll down to the block and catch a show/act at Pearl Street Warehouse or Union Stage (we’ll pick a day with something you’re into). And if it turns out the show sucks, we can mosey over to the southwest duck pond and chill with some ducks!
Leland Powell, 25
Why do you want to be auctioned? Friends encouraged me to take part, I've always wanted to be an eligible bachelor, and above all I can finally put my charm and good looks to use for a good cause.
Favorite pick-up line: 'Ey yo female, can I get yo email?
Ideal companion: Loving, cuddly, loves to run around outdoors, isn't too picky about food, and doesn't shed too much. Oh, like a human companion? Basically the same as above, but with a good sense of humor and a promise that they won't judge when I cry while watching Queer Eye
Why should you bid on me? If you don't bid on me then you will forever be left wondering 'What if?'. Years from now you'll remember the hesitation when you almost bid, but failed to do so. Photos will pop up of the wonderful time that the wonderful person (I know they are wonderful because they bid on me, like you should have) laughing and smiling and having the time of our lives, and you will be filled with envy and regret. Don't be filled with envy and regret, bid your life savings, 401k, and all of your valuable possessions. Bonus points for bringing a piggy bank to the auction and smashing it.
Also because I'm a great date
Favorite make-out song: Any John Mulaney bit
Favorite quote: “You don't have to test everything to destruction just to see if you made it right.”
Date: Our day will start off with a mani-pedi because everyone deserves one from time to time, followed by a trip to a local restaurant for food and drinks
