Single in the City: Elizabeth Pruitt

Elizabeth Pruitt, 37, Photographer

Hidden talent: Singing karaoke. My favorite song is "Lucky Star." I adore Madonna.

Biggest fear: Not accomplishing my goals.

My bad habit: Procrastinating.

My guilty pleasure: I love Lifetime. They have the most ridiculous, completely dramatic movies. But they are so awesome to watch and you get totally distracted from your life.

You'd never guess: That I go church every week. My faith is everything to me.

I can't live without: Working out. I go five to six times a week. I do a lot of circuit training.

My hero: Steve Jobs. He started a company out of his garage and he changed computers completely.

On my bucket list: Hiking the Grand Canyon and going to Egypt. I've always been fascinated by the pyramids.

Biggest accomplishment: Starting my business and getting published in The Knot.

When I'm not working: I'm busy playing and running around with my boys, who are ages three and five. My youngest is very quirky and the oldest is very serious and analytical. Between the two of them it's very interesting. They do fight so I have to break up a lot of fights.

Find me here on a Saturday night: A dive bar. I'm definitely not a high-maintenance person. I would go to a dive bar any day over a snooty, high-class bar.

If I had one wish: That Cleveland wouldn't have such bitter winters — or have a winter season at all!

Once-in-a-lifetime moment: The day my children were born. Those were two days in my life I will never forget. Those were the most joyful moments I ever had.

On death row, my last meal would be: A steak, french fries, a peanut butter and chocolate milkshake and then a big brownie sundae. I can't eat any gluten or dairy. And I don't eat any refined sugar either, so this meal would be full of them.

If I won the Mega Millions, I'd spend it on: A retirement home for my parents, college tuition, a big house by the lake and travel.

My No. 1 dating rule: Be honest. Come as you are and be yourself.

Deal-breakers: Being snooty.

The perfect date: Going to Cedar Point and grabbing dinner afterward. My favorite ride is the Magnum. It's fast and sleek and been around forever.

I'm a sucker for: Romance movies because they make you believe we can all have a happy, fairy-tale ending.

Most romantic thing I've ever done: When I was 18, I filled my boyfriend's car up with balloons and made him a mix CD of love songs like "Kiss from a Rose."

What I look for in a significant other: Someone who career-oriented and has direction in life.

Celebrity dream date: George Clooney.

Celebrity look-alike: I've been told I look like Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Dogs or cats: Cats. They are easy and low maintenance. But I don't have a cat.

Beach or mountains: Mountains. I consider myself an active person, so I'd rather go hiking.

Signature dish: Fajitas.

How I stay healthy: Exercising regularly and not eating any processed sugar.

Favorite ... love story: When Harry Met Sally because I love the characters. They start off as friends and in the end it turns into love. That is the way it should be. When you're looking for love, you might not always see that it's right in front of your face. ... book: Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity and Disease by Robert Lustig. It's about obesity in America. ... TV show: Breaking Bad. I started watching it on Netflix and got to season four in three weeks. ... movie: Pretty in Pink. I love James Spader. He's the best actor ever. There's teenage angst throughout the whole movie. They don't make movies like that anymore. ... blog: Macaroni Kid, so I can plan stuff with my kids. We found out about Boo at the Zoo there. ... music: Country. I like Carrie Underwood. ... restaurant: Treehugger's Cafe, Sweet Melissa and LongHorn [Steakhouse]. ... app: Cross Trainer. You can come up with your own workout. It formulates a weight-training workout, based on how advanced you are. You can determine how many minutes you do it and target different muscle groups.

What I'm reading: Blink by Malcolm Gladwell.

iPod embarrassment: I have some Justin Bieber songs on my phone.

I'm so over: Kim Kardashian.

Dream job: Staff photographer at the White House.

Dream vacation: Costa Rica. It's somewhere tropical with lots of fruity drinks, but I could rock climb and go to Mayan temples.

Best date I've been on: I just went out with a guy to a bar and he was fun and we had an awesome conversation. That was the best of kind of date I could want. We just totally hit it off.

Worst date I've been on: The worst date was with a guy who did nothing but talk to me about himself as if I was his therapist. It was totally awkward. I wanted nothing but to get out of there. He bought this big expensive meal, but I would have been happy with a burger and fries. I felt like I was trapped there with him and the meal took forever.
