Author, Marina Sbrochi, Tells How Fantasy Dating Worked For Her

Marina Sbrochi, author of Stop Looking for a Husband – Find the Love of Your Life, is back to tell how Fantasy Dating worked for her.

Ladies, I am here to tell you that following the Fantasy Dating Dares will help you find the love of your life sooner than if you do not follow the Fantasy Dating Dares.

I found the love of my life doing just that! In full disclosure, I found him before Fantasy Dating was available, but I assure you, I would have been the first to join in! I love a good game! But more than that, I love – LOVE!

Here’s my story: I was divorced and going to a concert with a friend (we were going to see Citizen Cope, if you haven’t heard of him, he rocks!). Anywho, the plan was to go out and have fun. Nothing else.

Julie and I were walking around the House of Blues trying to find a good location to watch the music. We finally find our spot. Lucky me, I just happen to notice a super hot guy standing in front of us. So of course, I’m standing there, watching the music and trying to be sly watching the hot guy.

Time goes on and I think to myself…should I talk to him? What would I say? What if he has a girlfriend? What if he thinks I’m weird? The nervousness and doubt creep up.

Then, I figure, I can stand here all night and I will never meet this hot guy. Or I can take a chance and say hello. What’s the worst thing that could happen? He could blow me off? Sure that would sting for a second…but just a second. Then it came to me, the worst thing that could happen is that I could miss a chance to meet a super guy!

So, I got my courage up and tapped his shoulder. He turned around with a smile. Good sign! I said, “Hello!” He said “hello” back! He moved closer and I asked him what he thought of the concert and had he ever seen Citizen Cope before. (Easy, generic questions that fit the situation) Turns out he was friends with Clarence, the singer of the band! The conversation went on from there.

Fast forward a bit, I’m talking with him and then his friend turns around and starts talking to my friend. Suddenly we have a little party. His friend buys us all shots (oh no!) and we begin to have a great time. As the night goes on, we dance, we kiss (GREAT KISSER) and he gets my phone number.

We had a blast the rest of the night. We took the party upstairs to the Foundation Room and danced some more! Finally, they had to leave to go party with the band. Of course, being the cool girl that I am, I told him to have fun and that we’d talk later. I was not going to smother a guy I just met. Besides, I like to play it cool and take things slowly. So, Julie and I decided to call it a night.

I was giddy about the evening! Of course I went to bed hoping he would call me in the next few days and he did!

I am happy to report that it’s now four years later and we are happily married with an 8 month old daughter!

Lesson to be learned here ladies – take a chance. The worst thing that could happen is you could miss meeting the love of your life!

So the next time you get a Fantasy Dating Dare — take it! It could be your last!

      Hi Neecy83!

      Fantasy Dating is fun way to to dare to date! Like other Fantasy sports, players create leagues, set stakes and compete to earn points. But when they Fantasy Date, players earn points by exchanging numbers, receiving texts and calls and going on dates. The friendly compeition motivates women to take chances they wouldn’t normally take.

      Like the author of this post, Marina Sbrochi, says, “Boyfriends don’t make housecalls.” So, if you’re at home watching a Real Housewives marathon and you see that your winggirls are scoring points like crazy, you will motivate and go out.

      Fantasy Dating empowers us to make eye contact, smile and say, “Hi,” to people we find attractive. The game gives us a reason to shake off our shyness and never leave a location thinking, “I should have said something! What didn’t I say something to him?” again.

      Check out to watch a video – “What Players are Saying About Fantasy Dating” and for game rules and an infographic that illustrates how to play. Then create a profile, join or start a league and dare to date!
