Marissa the Matchmaker


*Note: All opinions expressed by Marissa are her own and not necessarily those of the author.

Marissa was determined to set Midge up with a date.

After consulting Midge’s best friend Jan for some personal details she filled out a questionnaire in her name for an online dating site.

However, being Marissa she had to embellish a bit.

“Midge needs a couple of more exciting  hobbies .” she reasoned.

“Swimming is fine, but history? Who cares about that?

I won’t mention that she’s into saving the environment either.

That might put some guys off. I’ll add beach volleyball and belly dancing.

It will make her sound like a fun person. They can get into the serious stuff later.”

She adds a photo of Midge in a bikini and presses “Submit”.

Soon several responses arrived and Marissa looked through them to choose

the most likely candidates.

Candidate number one is Patrick.
Candidate number one is Patrick.

“Too old maybe? Good looking though. Let’s keep him in for now”,

Candidate number two is Tom (Army Buddy)

“Oh oh, not this guy!

I’ve seen him at the Tammy house flirting with those Tressy’s and then dating

College Tammy behind their backs. I don’t think Midge should go out with him.”

Candidate number three is Peter.

“Oh he’s cute! I wouldn’t mind dating him myself”

Marissa thinks she might save this one’s contact details.

Candidate number four is Michael.
Candidate number four is Michael.

“Now here’s a good one.” Michael, an Englishman, makes the cut too. Marissa thinks the last candidate looks like a possibility as well. “He looks brainy. Midge would like that and probably wouldn’t care about the dorky glasses.”

The last candidate is Clark.

Marissa sends off replies to three of the five guys (she’s keeping Peter for herself remember) suggesting meeting for a coffee or a drink.

Now all she has to do is convince Midge to go.

  1. Marissa is a rascal! Self serving but also seem to have Midge’s back. Look forward to hearing about Midge’s dates. She has good options including Patrick Dempsey McDreamy) and Clark Kent look-a-likes 🙂

    • I’m having a think about how to pursue this storyline so there may be some dates later. The Patrick Dempsey doll came out a few years ago. I got him because he looks different to Ken mainly.

  2. She might overrun Midge with her decision to enroll her to the dating site, but she really looks out for her friend, eleminating the Mr. Flirt-a-lot at once. Patrick and Clark would be my choices as well. I’m so curious how the story evolves
