“I’m in the mood for love simply because you’re near me. Funny, but when you’re near me, I’m in the mood for love.” Those opening lyrics to “I’m in the Mood for Love” were written by lyricist Dorothy Fields more than 80 years ago, but they are arguably the best description of love’s holiday, Valentine’s Day.
Like joy with Christmas and food with Thanksgiving, love is elevated during Valentine’s Day. That is why we here at Watermark started last year what has now become an annual tradition: presenting Central Florida and Tampa Bay’s 10 most eligible singles for the year.We checked out our Tinder and Grindr profiles, consulting with our moms and aunties who work with “someone who would be just perfect for you” in the process. As a result, we found five Central Florida and five Tampa Bay area singles who have got it going on.
Our work is done, now the rest is up to you. Take a little more time putting your outfit together, get your hair cut and your nails done, and don’t forget the dozen roses and box of chocolates, because rose ceremonies these days can seem like The Hunger Games.
Just put your best foot forward and be yourself, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
