2024’s Most Eligible Single: Mari Carmen

Occupation? Bartender.

Where do you live?

Wilton Manors.



What are you looking for in a partner?

I value honesty, communication, and a sense of humor in a partner. Someone who shares similar interests and values is important to me. I believe in mutual respect and support in a relationship. Ultimately, I'm looking for a connection where we can grow together and create a positive and fulfilling life.

Biggest turn off?

I don't like it when people are negative all the time because it brings down the mood. Also, being honest is really important to me, so when someone is not truthful, it's a big turn-off.

Biggest turn on?

I really like it when someone is kind and caring because it shows a good heart, and that's attractive to me. I'm also attracted to people who have big dreams and work hard to achieve them, as ambition is something I find very appealing.


I like making and trying new cocktails. I enjoy taking cute and spontaneous pictures, mainly my pets. I also enjoy tasting wines and tequilas to discover new flavors. And, of course, I love going for walks with my dog!

Any charitable/volunteer work?

I'm not volunteering right now, but I really want to help animals at a shelter in the future. It's something I look forward to doing.


Two loving pets: Pitbull Vizsla mix and a Tabby cat.

What’s your love language?

Physical touch, like hugs or holding hands. It makes me feel connected. Acts of service also mean a lot to me. When someone does something helpful or thoughtful, it really shows they care, and that's how I understand and appreciate love.

What’s your favorite date night activity?

I really like spending date nights cooking together at home. It's fun to prepare a meal together, and pair it with a nice bottle of wine. It feels cozy and special.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

I have a bit of a guilty pleasure for eating sweets. It's hard to resist having chocolates, cookies, and desserts. Even though I know it's not the healthiest choice, but the joy it brings is amazing!

One obscure fact about yourself:

I like trying really rare and unusual foods, even things like exotic animals or insects. It's a bit adventurous, and I enjoy exploring different and unique flavors.

What’s Your Motto?

Hope for the Best, Prepare for the Worst.
