Hi! My name is Tandra and I'm 25 years old. I grew up in Wayne, NJ and I'm a Cadaver Tissue Specialist. I'm 5'5" and I don't have any tattoos.

I can't live without my family, a good book, my razor (can't stand hair) and the Bible. My favorite movies are Good Will Hunting, What About Bob?, and Mean Girls, because they're great to psychoanalyze.

The craziest thing I've ever done is going to a different country and use my identical twins' I.D. and passport. Obviously it worked just fine.

The children I sponsor are my most proud achievement. I am happy to put my money toward giving them a better life. That, or getting my yoga certification.

If I could have lunch with three people (living or dead!) they would be Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Mother Theresa. A feast so we could all get down. Food is bonding, and every woman loves food!


If I won the lottery I would buy a room on a cruise ship that I could use any time. I'd also get a place in Southern California on the beach, a penthouse in New York, buy all of Sephora's inventory and oh yeah, give a TON to my parents for payback.

If I never had to say goodbye, I would be very happy.

If I never got to see the sunset, I would be very sad.

If I could be any fictional character, I'd be Thumbelina, because she's persuaded by so many families to become a part of theirs, but in the end of the fairy tale she follows her heart. Her or Allie from The Notebook, because Noah loves Allie so much.


If I could be any animal, it would be a a wild mustang, because they are free to run and explore, they're unpredictable and beautiful, and are loyal to their herd. Or a wolf, because they are are magical and bad-ass creatures.

Okay on to the relationship stuff! My biggest fear when I'm on a date is awkward silences, which are different from silences. That or having stomach issues and clogging up a toilet, a la Dumb and Dumber. Once I decided to try out being a cougar, but he was sooo immature and had me pay for everything. He was too intimidated to hold a conversation.

I love it when my date shares intimate conversation. I hate it when my date makes me pay for anything.


Being married, to me, means legal documentation that you are forever committed and loyal to your best friend.

If I really wanted to impress a man, I would laugh at his jokes to make him feel funny, and ask him questions about himself to make him feel special and show I'm interested. I also make cakes for guys on special occasions. Or give him a sexy dance because it would turn him on and hopefully lead to more. No, really what I'd do is keep my mouth shut. :) Seriously, I think just being supportive and listening to what they have to say works best.
