Tomorrow is the release of the second fabulous novella of the Tickle My Fantasy group - Paramatch.com by MK Mancos.
Dating in today’s world is tough enough. Pair it with a paranormalady, and Lucilla Wainwright is living the recipe for loneliness. Born a talentless witch in a family of legendary spellcasters, she’s managed to carve a niche for herself with ParaMatch.com, a matchmaking service for paranormal beings. What she lacks in the magic department, she more than makes up for with her uncanny ability to conjure committed relationships out of any combination of traits and backgrounds. Until now.
Online dating. I will confess I tried a certain e-dating site last year. It wasn't right for me. However, it did inspire one of my current works-in-progress: How Internet Dating Ruined My Life: A Love Story. Now, to be fair, e-dating didn't ruin my life and I'm sure there are thousands upon thousands of people out there who met their Mr. or Ms. Right with the help of an online profile. Yes, it is convenient. Yes, you are exposed to a lot of profiles. But how many do you actually meet? And how do you know which ones you should meet? As you're shuffling through the hundreds (not exaggerating) of supposedly compatible men, you have no way of knowing if you might have had explosive chemistry and an amazing intellectual connection with the man you disqualified because he didn't list an interest in exotic travel or had only read one book in the last year.
Though, to be perfectly honest (and shallow), you know what bugged me the most? They wouldn't stop matching me with short guys. I had listed height as very important on my little questionnaire thingy - I am five-nine in my bare feet and I luv wearing heels - but I kept getting matched with guys who were five-one and five-two. I don't care how big your Napoleon complex is, that just don't cut it for me. I grew up around men who tower over me. I like being tall, but I also like being around people (men) who do not make me feel like an Amazon. I do not want to spend my life feeling gargantuan and ninety percent of the guys that were supposedly perfect for me were five-seven or shorter. Grow a foot and you've got a date.
