Will isn't upset about being newly single. ''We just realized we weren't in the same place,'' he says. And he means it, literally -- it was a long-distance relationship that wasn't working. The 21-year-old who lives Towson, Md., spends his days focusing on school as a senior at Towson University studying business and marketing. When he's not hitting the books, Will likes to take part in anything athletic. He's a big fan of running, surfing, swimming and rugby. When hanging out with friends in D.C., Will can be found at Nellie's. ''I love meeting new people,'' he says. ''I'm pretty easygoing.''
