Letter:
1. Amanda's Supernatural Love

New York, USA
Playing for: male, romance
I am looking for someone with brains. I am looking for an interesting and intelligent man, preferably a supernatural. I find them all very alluring. I want to go on adventures with him.

2. Amanda's Journey of Love
Location: Somewhere beautiful
Reason for playing: girl, love
I was lucky enough to find an amazing match. This time I'm trying something magical, mystical and full of adventure. I might be starting a love triangle, but I'm okay with that. Just not looking for a contemporary romance, I crave adventure and something undiscovered! It might be dangerous, it might be a long journey, but I hope it is worth it. Last time was one of the best matches I have found all year!

Picks:
Game 1:

Blue → Exotic → #1 → Dating → Diamond → B → And the Winner Is ... !
Game 2:

White → City →

The final round. After this, you will finally meet the last man standing.


One of these men would like to spend time with you going to a sporting event or watching the game on TV (awesome snacks included, of course).

How would you like to spend quality time?

A) Watching Sports: read a book that has the author's last name initial in the word SPORT.
B) Working on a Project: read a book that has the author’s last name initial in the word MAKE.

Your match awaits behind a closed door. You walk slowly to the door. You reach out your shaking hand, grasping the the doorknob with white knuckles. The door creaks open ... and there he is!

Click "view spoiler" to discover your match!

(view spoiler)

If you'd like to play again, send a letter telling why it didn't work out with this person to the Mailbox thread. If you haven't read the book this character is from, you'll need to read it before submitting your letter for a new game.

Women 1-10 are lined up. You must now eliminate 5 of them.
We asked all the women which location they enjoyed more on a first date.

A) Being in the city.
B) Being in the country.

Which would you prefer?

If you pick A, the cover of your book must have a light source (doesn't have to be lit) or an item that is silver, gray, gold, or yellow.

If you pick B, the cover of your book must have a plant or an item that is any shade of green or blue.

Note: Words that are one of the colors are acceptable. If literally anything on the cover has one of those colors, it works.
