We experienced a wonderful response to our first Swirling Single Of The Week, Traci Milam.
Kudos to Traci for being bold enough to step on out there and represent as our first Swirling Single profile. Woot Woot!
[Sidebar: Just so you know, all our Swirling Singles have to complete a profile sheet. We also converse personally with each one. And yes, we engage in some other vetting steps – but ultimately, all vetting is on you.]
With that bit of housekeeping out-of-the-way, say hello to our next Swirling Single Of The Week: Danyell Huffman!
TSW Admin. Adrienne Leach had the opportunity to converse with Danyell and ask her some questions:
Danyell, how long have you been single?
I’ve been single for almost a year or so.
Tell me about yourself.
I’m definitely a lover. If you asked others about me they’d usually say that I’m a giver with a big heart. When people say “I’d give the shirt off my back”…I really mean it. I feel that I was put on earth to help others and I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to do that in my personal life and in my career.
I was raised with strong morals and values and always treat others how I would want to be treated. I’m severely loyal almost to a fault sometimes but I’m a believer in Karma so things always work themselves out if others try to take advantage of your kindness.
I’m a divorced mother of two and I love my children more than anything in the world; they are my greatest gifts. Everything I do and work towards has been for them . . . . oddly enough they’ve helped me to become a better person.
I’m very ambitious and it is the reason I’ve gotten so far in my career at a younger age. My career has always been a big part of my life. I’m passionate about my work and see my work as a reflection of myself so I always give 110%.
I’m always going to strive for greatness and will never be content with settling. That can really throw some people off because once I accomplish one goal it’s on to the next, but that’s just the way that I am.
I want to be able to change the world. Even though I’m only one person I feel like I can make a difference. My all-time favorite quote is “You must be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ~Gandhi.
I love the beach (I am a water child). Anything having to do with the beach is very relaxing to me. I have a laid-back personality and it’s pretty difficult to make me angry but when and if you ever do . . . watch out!
I’m definitely a girly girl but I don’t mind getting down and dirty either. I’m a very affectionate person and a hopeless romantic.
A couple of goals I have in this life are to write a book or books and have them published and sell well of course!
How long were you married?
I was married for 6 years. I didn’t get married thinking it would end in divorce, but unfortunately it did.
What are the qualities that you are looking for in a man and what type of relationship do you want your dating to lead to?
I am not getting any younger. At this point in my life I don’t want a ton of men in and out of my life and potentially my children’s, so I am looking for something serious (not right away of course), but something that would eventually lead to a long-term relationship. I’m not looking for a fling or casual dating but someone who is serious about having a family down the line.
It’s important that the man who I end up with understand that he doesn’t have to be a father to my children but I would expect him to eventually love my children like they were his own. Honesty and loyalty are at the top of my list.
I want someone who I can talk to for hours on end and it never gets old, someone who isn’t closed-minded and sees the bigger picture in life and in our relationship. I need someone who will not only tell me he loves me but more importantly, show me. Quality time is big on my list and it’s actually my love language.
I also want someone who isn’t afraid to take risks, ruffle a couple of feathers, and be spontaneous every once in a while. I believe in keeping things interesting and for me spontaneity is a way to accomplish that.
I need a man who can stand up for himself and not let people walk all over him. I need a man with great morals and values. I’m open to men with and without children but they have to be okay with me having children. I’m open to men from all walks of life. I’d like to keep my options open, think outside of the box. Who knows? Maybe I’ll find someone phenomenal!

I leave for a MINUTE (the Black minute, not the 60-second kind) and you turn this piece into a…a…HOOK-UP PARLOR?
Young lady, I am Telling Your Mother.
