From left to right: Kim Gartner, Rosemarie Dombrowski

Kim Gartner, 47

Though a sweet smile and dreamy eyes would be nice, Gartner, director of corporate events for GoDaddy, desires a man with integrity, intelligence and a sense of humor most of all. Gartner enjoys traveling, hiking, running, walking her dog, watching football games, running half- and full-marathons and working out. Plus, she’s a great cook with a kind heart, hard-working Midwestern values and a fun, close-knit family who strives to make the little things count each and every day.

AFM: What is the most romantic thing you’ve done for a partner?

KG: I planned a surprise weekend in Sedona.

AFM: Who is your celebrity crush?

KG: I have a few. George Clooney and Jason Sudeikis or Will Ferrell because there is nothing sexier than a guy with a great sense of humor.

Dr. Rosemarie Dombrowski, 39

As a lecturer of English at Arizona State University, every fall and spring you’ll find Dombrowski sermonizing on the Downtown Phoenix-based campus about everything from American poetry to post modernism. Much of her free time is also devoted to the literary arts, as she runs a poetry series, reads her works throughout the Valley and is an editor for the local literary journal, Four Chambers. She also counts spin classes, wine bars and trips to Coronado Island with her son Brendan among her off-work interests. 

AFM: What do you seek in a partner?

RD: He needs to be cerebral and gregarious, preferably with a dash of sarcasm. He has to own a few tailored suits, be willing to attend the symphony and the opera, and have a penchant for art and literature.  

AFM: What is your dream date?

RD: At the moment, I’d have to say an afternoon at the Louvre followed by an evening at a café on the Left Bank.
