13 Zodiac Women
by Carolyn M. Anderson
Ted has a successful practice as a counselor. He’s physically attractive, cultured, and a caring soul. He’s also lonely and eager to find love. When blind dates fizzle out, he decides to give online dating a try.
Each new encounter creates excitement and hopefulness. Online dating is filled with sweet Geminis, adventurous Libras, and gorgeous Aries. Ted enjoys meeting these bright women. But behind the sunny online profiles, some of them reveal themselves as not a match for him by being distant, bitter, and hurt. But among the women who date for fun or to escape memories of past relationships, can he find the woman who can be that special one in his life?
Divided into a series of short chapters, 13 Zodiac Women is also a serious meditation on life, sexuality, relationships, and how flawed humans struggle to find a connection. Ted, like all of us, has to pick up the pieces and try again and again, holding fast to the belief that he will find his soulmate.
