GPV Date Auction Preview: Derek

Posted in Causes, Nightlife with tags , , , , on April 26, 2009 by GayRVA

DerekDerek’s mom Nora makes a mean chocolate éclair cake. It’s his favorite dessert. And if he were a cartoon character, he’d be Bart Simpson on crack – friends say his best asset is his personality. One day, he hopes to visit Montreal, but for now, on a date, he doesn’t need a trip on a jet plane. He just likes to hang out. Derek says, whatever happens, happens. If you bid on him tonight, maybe one day, you’ll be trying Nora’s cake.

Favorite quote: “Never say never.”

RyanDon’t get on his bad side. This 26-year-old Richmond native captained VMI’s Tae Kwon Do team. Besides martial arts, he stays in shape through lifting and soccer. That doesn’t mean he can’t indulge in a little Ben & Jerry’s Half-Baked or his favorite pineapple fried rice from Thai Diner now and then. His favorite thing about Richmond is that his mom’s still here. Aww! Maybe Ryan will show you the art of self defense if you bid on him.

TriciaDon’t be fooled. This 34-year-old Richmonder may be vanilla when it comes to her ice cream preference, but she’s all about the toppings. Tricia loves cooking, sports, movies, and music – she’s also up for some adventure. She’s traveled to Peru and hiked the Inca trail and has made waves in whitewater rapids on the Rio Urubamba. Naturally, her favorite thing in Richmond is the James River. You could be taking your next adventure with Tricia if you bid on her on Sunday.

AshleyPinch your pennies for this 22-year-old social worker from Philly.  She’s a fresh face to Richmond having been in town less than six months.  She’s already found a love for Sticky Rice – it’s one of her favorite things about the RVA.  Ashley is outgoing, loves the outdoors, and beachin’ it.  She’s also has a soft-spot for animals and is the owner of a special-needs beagle.  Are there sushi and tater tots a la Sticky in your future?
