Ashlee Adams, 29

Oklahoma City

Occupation: GiveSmartOKC coordinator at Oklahoma City Community Foundation.

Favorite thing to do around town: I enjoy biking on the new trails, relaxing on a patio with a beer and friends, venturing out to try all the new local hot-spot restaurants, taking my dog (Finn) to the dog park and brunching on the weekends.

Favorite restaurant or food truck: So many great ones to choose from, but one of my top favorites has to be Cheevers. Great service and delicious food.

Favorite book: Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead by Brené Brown.

Favorite music: Country and singer/songwriter. I’m currently into Penny & Sparrow and Chris Stapleton.

Your favorite charity and why: My job is at a non-profit and I work closely with too many great organizations to choose just one! Although I do have a passion for helping marginalized women and mentoring and empowering younger girls. And, of course, I have a soft spot for animal rescue groups.

What are some of your hobbies: Traveling (always ready to get away), water-skiing (being on the lake is my happy place), partaking in coffee and conversation (I love getting to know people), watching Thunder games, spending quality time with friends and serving on boards and committees (I stay busy).

What you are looking for in a partner: Someone who has a strong faith, respectful for all, takes initiative, kind, confident and makes me laugh.

Three words that sum up your dating life: Colorful, amusing, hopeful.

Best thing about being single: The ability to travel whenever and wherever.

What would you say to the person who nominated you to be part of Single in the City: Thank you for trying to save me from the trenches of online dating!
