2013 Most Eligible Tigers

What’s that, you say? You’re single? And ready to mingle?

Well, aren’t you in luck. We at the Gazette thought you may want to meet eight of Dalhousie’s most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, all of whom are single athletes and ready to mingle.

Each of these fine young men and women bring something different to the table. Perhaps you want to stroll through Point Pleasant Park with a hockey player, hook up to Justin Timberlake’s music, or go skinny dipping in the moonlight. Whatever the case, we’ve got a match for you.

And if you really can’t make up your mind—we even have a set of twins.

This is our gift to you, Dal. So, the next time you go out to a game or a meet, make sure you cheer extra loud.

Paula Sanderson is a fourth-year at King’s. She enjoys tequila, dance parties and setting people up. She would like to remind the single athletes that they have her number if they have any further questions. 😉

Q: How can I show a varsity athlete that I’m interested in them?

A: The best way to attract a varsity athlete is to watch the athlete play and then compliment them on their showing, in a non-creepy way. Sending a Facebook message to an athlete you do not know saying “you had a great game!” although nice, is essentially creepy unless you are Ryan Gosling.

Someone can meet a Tiger at any varsity events, at the Grawood, downtown, the library, etc. Although we spend a lot of time practicing, playing and travelling, we can be found all over campus. Look for clues that they are a varsity athlete such as the Adidas backpack, team jacket or traveling in packs of teammates.

When it comes to dating a Tiger, I think the main concern would be to understand the busy schedules we have. It is also a plus if you understand the sport they play. Don’t be a know-it-all, though. We already deal with our coaches telling us what to do. We don’t need other people stepping in.
