Most Eligible Bachelor - Atlanta, GA

I am linking up to Kelly's Korner for her "Show Us Your Life - Singles Edition."


Meet Greg.  Greg is 25 and lives in Atlanta.  Before I even go any further, you should know this... I'm Greg's boss.  And, I love him.  And, he's a very good friend.  Weird, but not.  Greg has lots of friends... more friends than probably anyone I know.  He has definitely been in more weddings and invited to more weddings than anyone I know.  That's because everyone likes him.  And for good reason.  He's quite likable.

Facts about Greg:

He'll turn 26 in May.  He graduated from Auburn (I don't hold it against him).  He's from Atlanta.  He currently works in commercial real estate.  He's about 6' and 185 lbs, if I had to guess.  He has brown hair and brown eyes and a beard... and cute dimples.  He's really involved with Young Life at his old high school.  His passion is Jesus.  He's one of the funniest and wittiest people I know.  He has a heart of gold.  He knows how to have fun.  He's generous.  He plays the guitar.  He's 1/2 Greek and 1/2 Irish.

Now for more elaboration:

I honestly cannot say enough about Greg.  He is truly one of the most genuine, kind hearted, funny people I know.  He has a great personality, zest for life, and ridiculous love for our Savior.  He has been a spiritual mentor to me over the almost three years we've worked together.  He currently works in commercial real estate, and it pays the bills, but it is not his passion.  His passion is teaching young folks about Jesus.  Much to my pleasure, he's making his passion his job in June (don't tell our company). ;)  He'll be going to serve with Young Life full time somewhere in Georgia.  I pray somewhere near Atlanta, because he will be "Uncle Greg" to our future kids.  Fact.  I always love when he comes back from Young Life camps and tells me how so many young men in his group accepted Christ.  Besides the fact that that is rad, it's the excitement and passion he has for it.

I talk about Greg a lot at home.  You would think that this would make my husband uncomfortable.  But it doesn't.  Matt has met Greg a few times and thinks he's great.  He said to me after our team's Christmas party, "I understand why you like Greg so much."  He's just that guy.  He's funny as all get out and not above self-depricating humor.  He can talk to anyone.

If you're a single, Christian lady in/near Atlanta and reading this and looking for an awesome guy, leave me a comment with some way to get in touch with you (e-mail address or blog).  Even if it's not a love match, you won't regret meeting him!



ETA: Thank you for all your comments!  I'd say I'm surprised at the number of responses, but I'm really not, because Greg is a catch.  Obviously, Greg can't really start anything with everyone, so I've sent him everything and he's going to contact anyone that catches his eye.  A number of you were not in or near Atlanta, and I'm not sure Greg is up for the long distance thing (especially to start out a relationship), but you never know.

Rebekah said...

Greg sounds like a super awesome guy! This may sound bad, but the 'hottest' quality about a guy (at least to me) is the way he loves Jesus.

I currently live in Mississippi, but might be relocating in the future. If you feel like my info would be something you might like to pass on to Greg, I'm #99 on Kelly's linky. Or, here's a direct link.

Good luck to Greg in the search for a wife! He'd make any girl lucky! :)

Allison said...

I think Greg would enjoy meeting my sister Jillian, they seem to have a lot in common! She’s an adorable, super fun, early-20’s sweet southern girl in Atlanta who has a huge heart and loves the Lord. If Greg would like to get to know her, Jillian's email address is Jillybean.414@gmail.com.

HI,
I love that Kelly did this and would like to suggest he take a look at my friend's blog where she posted pictures of a family visit with their daughter Amy(28) Amy is in Louisville,Kentucky, and works with Student Life Ministry, while pursuing her masters degree at Southern. She is one of the most lovely, fun girls we have ever met. She has a smile that lights up the room, a great sense of humor, and is incredibly selfless.
