Weekend Writing Warriors #83!

Hi there! Happy Sunday to you! Today I'll be sharing another excerpt from Adventures in Online Dating.

Here's a brief blurb: After too many failed relationships, too many shots of tequila, and too many not-so-gentle nudges from her best friend, Sydney Montrose joins an online dating site in hopes of finding THE ONE. During her adventures, she crosses paths with a professional gamer who lives with his parents, a sweet and sarcastic parking enforcement officer, a flirty barista, a mystery man, a touchy-feely former felon, and a clown. Which one will she choose? Well, that's all entirely up to you! :D

And heeeeeere's an excerpt, continuing from where we left off: 

“Okay, let’s check out Charlie first and then we’ll give G.I. Joe a thorough inspection.”
            Sydney slid closer to her so she could help her friend navigate faster through the profiles. “That’s him.”
            “Ahh, he’s a ginger. Dimples--always a good thing. Oooh, look at him posing with kids in one of his profile pics. Smooth move, bud. I hope they’re not yours.”
            “No, it says in the caption they’re his nephews.”
            “That’s acceptable.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors! 

I've spent a very generous portion of my weekend catching up on episodes of Outlander and drooling over the heavenly deliciousness that is Jamie. I would very much like to marry him--or Sam Heughan. If any of you know how I can go about doing that, please help a sister out. I'll even invite you to the wedding. ;) Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead!

  4. Just a hunch - but I'm already throwing my vote to the clown, sight unseen. Such a clever idea for a story. Love the easy familiarity between the two friends. As always, looking forward to more!

  10. Definitely a good choice. It says, 'see, I can be domestic,' without going too far out there. He sounds cute, though I wonder if cute is what she's looking for.
