20 Sexy Singles 2012: Leslie Baumeister

Leslie Baumeister, 22


The perfect date: A Tribe game. It's relaxing, and you can walk around. You don't have to just sit there and shoot questions at each other. When I worked for the Indians, I pretty much kept stats for four years, so I can hold a conversation about the game.

Something most people don't know about me: My family is supposedly related to Captain Morgan. We had somebody research it.

My passion: I love traveling. I like meeting new people and doing something new, like horseback riding through Bryce Canyon.

Biggest turn-on: A good sense of humor. I hate serious people.

Biggest turnoff: Smoking

I own too many: Parking tickets. I got three in one day.

My favorite ... place in Cleveland: Progressive Field. I like being outside, and the atmosphere is great. ... book: I read a lot of James Patterson. I like anything in his Women's Murder Club mystery series. ... musician/band: Eli Young Band. I used to live in Texas, and they were big there. It's country rock. ... sports team: I follow a few baseball teams. Don't worry, the Indians are one of them. ... TV show: Desperate Housewives. My mom and I watch it every Sunday. ... vacation destination: New York. Manhattan has everything, from shopping to museums to comedy clubs. ... dessert: Cheesecake. I eat what I want, but I do portion control. ... blog: I usually just do Facebook and Twitter.

My usual hangout: Downtown Sushi Rock. I'm a hostess there, and I like to stay after work with my friends.

In high school I was ... a tennis player and voted "Next Top Model" by my senior class in '07.

And now I'm ... trying to graduate and get a job in New York, either in sports management or modeling.

My best feature: my sense of humor. You need to be able to laugh at yourself to get through life.

My bad habit: I'm a terrible procrastinator.

My first kiss: At 12 years old, under the bleachers during a Strongsville football game. Could you be any more cliche than that?

My guilty pleasure: shoe shopping. That's why I cut up my credit cards.

How my ex would describe me: I'm "too easy going" and "very indecisive." It annoyed him.

Going out or staying in: Going out in the summer and staying in during the winter.

Early, late or right on time: I always end up being on time, especially if it's a job thing.

Dogs or cats: Pigs. I want a teacup pig. I saw one in the pet store one time.

Dancing ... yes or no? Yes, but I'm not good at it.

Twitter ... yes or no? I get all my news stories from @ESPN, @PlainDealer and @TMZ.

My longest relationship: Three years off and on. We're still good friends.

Beer, wine or martinis: I always drink vodka and Sprite.

Roses or chocolates: Chocolates. Almond chocolates and turtles are my favorite.

My No. 1 dating rule: No dinner dates for the first date. It's uncomfortable.

My deal-breaker: Being rude or overly cocky

I hate when a date ... is needy and too anxious. This one guy jumped the gun and asked too many questions about "our future."

But I love when a date ... is relaxed and really easy to talk to.

Worst pickup line: I used to get a lot of weird Jessica Simpson comments. One guy asked me to autograph his jersey as her. Then he asked for my number.

If I could date anyone: Pitbull. I like reggaeton, and he's got great energy.

On a first date I never ... give too much personal info about myself.

Best place to meet someone: You could meet anybody anywhere, like work or a restaurant, and it could work out. But never in a night club.

Most unusual place I've met someone: Tennis camp at Hilton Head. It didn't work out.

My take on Cleveland's single scene: People complain a lot about it, but I don't think it's bad. I meet people all the time, but I work Downtown. It's a lot harder in the suburbs.

What I find sexy about myself? I can be a tomboy one minute and throw on high heels and a tight dress the next.

Why I'm single? I don't dedicate enough time to meeting people. If I have a Friday off, the last thing I want to do is spend it with someone I hardly know. I'd rather be with my friends.

Will you play tennis with me? I will feed you, give you chocolates, have your car washed, and take you to New York...
