Looking for love in all the wrong places

ID-10094143 My character, Lizzie, is a psychic matchmaker. She uses her gift to help lonely women find love. Lizzie has a great success rate, with almost all of her matched couples living happily ever after.

In the real world, finding the right partner is a lot more difficult. There are online dating sites to help women find love, but I don’t have a whole lot of faith in those.

I have tried several of those sites. It wasn’t because I was really looking for love. I was mostly just curious. I never went out with any of the guys that I chatted with online. Being on those sites was entertaining though.

One guy emailed me less than 24 hours after I posted my profile. That was a little unexpected because I didn’t have a picture on the site. Not having a picture usually cuts down on the number of responses you get.

After I exchanged a few messages with the guy, I thought he sounded familiar. I asked if he used to live in a certain town. Never heard from him again!

Want to know what’s way more fun than looking for love on online dating sites? Having well-meaning friends doing matchmaking for you.ID-100137253

My friends don’t have the talent that Lizzie has. Talk about disastrous attempts at matchmaking! I’m not sure what they were thinking when they decided to hook me up with those guys.

I don’t run into many decent, eligible men when I’m out and about. Online dating sites and well-meaning friends haven’t helped me find Mr. Right.

So where am I going to look if I get serious about wanting to meet a decent guy?

Maybe I should give online dating sites another try. Maybe I tried the wrong ones in the past. Surely there are sites that are worth my time.

Have you ladies had luck with online dating? If so, what sites do you recommend?
