SWF ISO Valentine's Playmate

Stella thinks a good man is hard to find.
SWF ISO a man into the great outdoors. You like the feel of grass, snow, mud and pavement under your feet and aren't afraid to make the world your restroom, when nature calls. You don't own a car, because let's face it, that's just silly. You enjoy the company of others, but sometimes you just need your space (and a 6-hour daytime nap on the couch). You're outdoorsy, but the finer things in life excite you equally; a well-worn fur coat, the taste of designer shoes, a steak you didn't order, but dined on anyways. You're a good-looking, silver-haired fellow with a beard who lives a life of leisure and is ready for his playmate and partner. All you need to know about me is that I'm tall and thin with curly-blond hair, a great smile and totally down with doggie style. Let's make this Valentine's Day one to remember.

If you don't want to spend another Valentine's Day strutting around your apartment in stilettos for your dog, leash up Fido and find love together at Urban Out Sitters' Cupid party tomorrow night at their West Loop location. Following the 8-minute-dating model, humans and their furry companions can meet and mingle with like-minded dog enthusiasts at a Valentine's themed soirée complete with wine for the humans and treats for both you and your drooling guest. This year you deserve a real man (or woman) to walk around your house on all fours. Find him (or her) tomorrow night.

Cupid, a singles party for pets, tomorrow, February 10, at Urban Out Sitters, 729 W Randolph, 7 p.m., $35 for anyone with two legs; four-legged sweethearts are free. Register here. (New guests to Urban Out Sitters parties receive $8 discount/$27 ticket price. Use first-time code of 8md17212 when registering online.)
