Bachelor Doppelgänger

All right world – it’s time for a little fun.  Meet my very awesome younger brother Dallin, aka the Doppelganger of the current Bachelor, Sean!   

Doppelgänger definedSomeone that looks
the exact same as another person, yet not a twin. 
What do you think?  Dallin is 27, Sean is 28.  In my opinion, he looks just like him!  This has given me an idea.    I’ve put this off long enough (as in, almost the entire season of the Bachelor).   

Who wants to play matchmaker with me, Mormon-style?  

No alcohol, no overnight dates, and seriously---crazies need not apply.   There's got to be some drama-free darlings left in this world, right?

Let’s start off with some bare-minimum requirements for the ladies:
1.     Age 21 or over, no exceptions*
2.     Spiritual
3.     Confident
4.     Fun

Cave in Mexico
You might be a good match for Dallin as long as you can handle a guy who is super spiritual, highly intelligent, tall (6 feet exactly), blonde, handsome, buff, service-oriented, hilariously funny, outgoing, athletic, spontaneous, driven and ambitious - owns his own little business, has a college degree in Engineering/Pre-Med, just took the MCAT and is currently working 2 jobs in preparation to go to med school…
Let's see, what else? World-traveled, awesome uncle, goes to the temple often, RM, and respects women. Always the peacemaker in our family.  Led a team that built a school in Mexico for his chosen spring break vacation.  Politically active.  Incredible snowboarder and wakeboarder... I could go on. But with all this to his name, he'd probably never tell you about it because he's super humble. The kindest guy...

His name is Dallin Durbano. And given that he is my little brother, you may think that makes me biased.  But I'm telling you, he is an UNbiased 10. So if you think you or someone you know should go out with a 10, then lets line it up!  I’m hoping a girl with her head on straight will apply.  ;)  I’d like to see my brother happy with a nice girl.

INSTRUCTIONS: Email me at natbuttars at gmail dot com with your age, location (city), a picture, and a brief explanation about yourself, your interests, your education and/or job, and why you’d be a fun match for my brother.  Please put "DATE DALLIN" in the subject line.  Yes, a picture is required or at least a link to your facebook profile.  Or both.  Please submit by no later than midnight MST on Sunday, March 10, 2013.  Then hopefully we can have some lucky dates chosen by St. Patrick's Day!  Thanks!  

P.S.  I am one who thinks blind dates are a fantastic idea, given that I met my husband on a blind date.  And if you think this is a crazy way to get lined up, just know that my blind date was arranged by none other than my dear ole Grandma {she has great taste!}.  So crazier things have happened… and worked out!

JOSH, age 22
*If you have someone fabulous but under 21 that you would like to line up with my brother, I would be happy to set them up with my very stellar 22-year-old brother, Josh.  Dallin is slightly tired of dating the super young girls.  Hey, they could double!
