I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes. I’m out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best. – Marilyn Monroe

= Personal Information =

General Overview: Although unpredictable with my love life (and everyone else’s!), I’m actually fairly predictable in my day-to-day life. I rarely wake up alone in the mornings unless I decide I need some me time the night before. I typically work in the office from about ten to three on weekdays. I meet personally with clients who are either looking to start their journey to find their soulmate or who are looking for dating advice, which I also happily provide. Then it’s off to spend some time shopping or spending time with my friends or heading to see the other gods and goddesses. At night, it’s time to go out and have a good time! It’s a different club and a different party every night. The drinks are flowing, the music is loud, and the men flock to me in droves. Some women too.

I’m not someone you can easily get along with. Jealousy follows me wherever I go. I, myself, am a very jealous individual. Don’t ask me to say it again. I know what I want, I go after it, and I always, always get my way.

= Historical Synopsis =

Aphrodite is the ancient Greek goddess of sexual love and beauty, correlating to Venus in Rome. She was born from the white sea foam and Uranus’s severed genitals thrown into the sea by his son Cronus. She was widely worshipped as a goddess of the sea as well as a godess of war in places like Sparta before settling into the position of the goddess of love.

Aphrodite was horribly mismatched with Hephaestus as her husband, so she turned to many, many affairs to satisfy her. The most famous and long lived was that of her and Ares. She had several children by him. Hepheastus caught the two of them in his and Aphrodite’s bed with a golden net where he then brought the other gods and goddesses to stare and laugh at them.

Aphrodite is famous for interfering with mortals’ love lives. She will stop at nothing to get her way or prove her point, even to start something as devastating as the Trojan War.

= Introduction =

Let me get one thing straight. I am not a slut.

I am a victim of my circumstances.

I was born unlucky. I literally sprang out of seafoam when Uranus’s severed genitals fell into the sea. No real mother or father to speak of. I emerged from the water in this perfect body. Seriously. Not a flaw. And it is a gorgeous body, don’t get me wrong; I love turning heads. But it gets me into a lot of trouble. I can’t go anywhere without getting hit on or solicited for sex or being showered with proclamations of false love.

Zeus and Hera coerced me into marrying Hephaestus when I was still a young god. Tried to make me believe he would be the one if I just gave him a chance, if I just met him. I met him, and we were married on the spot. I tried to care for him; I really did. But he’s just… so big and burly and so rough around the edges. I don’t get anything out of the relationship! Was I just supposed to stay stuck in an arranged marriage forever? I don’t think so!

Yes. I fool around a little. I can’t say I haven’t. I’ve got a long term-no definition-no clear boundaries thing going on with Ares. I’ve had one night stands with Poseidon, Dionysus, Hermes… I play around a little in the mortal world every so often. Okay, maybe I fool around a lot. Can you blame me?

I’ve been looking for love for as long as I can remember. I know, right? I’m the goddess of love, and even after all these eons, I can’t find my One. Hephaestus is great for a round of angry sex every once in a while, but he’s not a really cuddly fellow and… not much to look at. Ares is fiery and passionate, but I couldn’t hold him down even if I tried. He’s a no strings attached man. I need someone who’s gonna worship me like I deserve, but also someone who’s gonna hold me down when necessary and take charge.

I started AHarmony (not to be confused with eHarmony, which has a far lower success rate by comparison) to help pair mortals with their soulmates. Yes, not partners. Soulmates. They exist. Now, yes, there’s a lot of trial and error in this process. A lot of profiles get read, a lot of sorting gets done, a little hands-on manipulation into mortal lives. It’s all good! It all works out in the end! Of course, you have to start a couple wars to get people together, but hey, love always wins out in the end.

I’m a storyteller, a storyteller of the best love stories. And maybe some of the worst. I can’t take credit for everything; relationships fall apart on their own! I suppose when I get bored, things tend to fall apart more, but that’s all semantics. But see, I’m no slut. I’m just a woman looking for love… and only finding superficiality.

I’m still looking.
