THE WAIT IS OVER. It's time to introduce the men and women who have been named the Daily News' Sexy Singles for 2012. Before we get to that, though, we want to thank all of you who nominated your co-workers, siblings and friends for this year's crop of Sexy Singles. Your suggestions were invaluable in finding this diverse group of Philadelphia's most beautiful people. Today, we introduce you to 10 Sexy Singles, the first half of this year's group. Make sure to return tomorrow, when we bring you 10 more.

Special thanks to all the folks who worked behind the scenes to make Sexy Singles successful once again. We are especially grateful to the hard-working staff at MB and Associates PR in Voorhees for their invaluable work and public relations assistance. We also want to thank Bernard's Salon & Spa, specifically hair stylists Gia Ingargiola, Karri Wagner, Maryann Shoukri, and Chelsea Baxley, and makeup artists Becca Morris, Lauren Cerami, Lisa Damico, and Erica Dmochowski for doing the hair and makeup for most of the Sexy Singles. Daily News contributing photographer Reuben Harley provided styling assistance, as did celebrity fashion stylist Anthony Henderson.

Thanks should also go out to various locations that allowed us to do shoot photos on their premises: North Shore Beach Club in Northern Liberties, George Perrier's Georges on the Main Line, Coastline Restaurant & Bar, and E Lounge in Cherry Hill. Also, thanks to Preferred Car & Limousine in Cherry Hill for providing us with vehicles.
