TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 15 (UPI) -- A man in Tampa, Fla., is in desperate need of a good woman interested in one day getting married, the man's mother says in a newspaper advertisement.
The amateur cupid behind The Tampa (Fla.) Tribune romance posting was identified only as Claudia, a mother who said her only Christmas wish is for her son to find true love, the newspaper reported Monday.
"All I want for Christmas is a wife for my son," the woman's Tribune posting reads.
"I'm sad that he's alone, a 37-year-old handsome Tampa professional."
Claudia adds there is nothing about her son, Jason, that should prevent him from finding the right woman.
"He's such a good boy," she offers. "He's so good-hearted, so good-looking. He's got a good job."
Claudia told the Tribune she has only received three responses to date about her son, who has one divorce behind. Nonetheless, the romantic parent is determined to find love for her son.
"I feel like sometimes you just need to put yourself out there, regardless of the chance you're taking," Claudia said. "You will never know what you might have missed if you don't."
