I have a special post today.
A few Twitter friends and I came up with the idea to do a few Valentine’s Day posts with our characters. Keep an eye out for another post in a few days!
Today I’m doing a Perfect Date post, advertising why this character would be such a good date. This character is from my WIP, Dragon Races.
Matthew Cole Cloud. He goes by Cloud or occasionally Matt or Matthew.
How does he look? Eyes, hair, any tattoos or scars. What’s his style?
Cloud is 23 and he’s 6’1″. He has messy blond hair, blue eyes, and he has a couple of burn scars because he is a dragon racer. His style is casual– jeans, baseball shirt, sneakers, though he would dress up a little for a date.
What kind of music? What kind of food?
Cloud likes just about any kind of music, but he is secretly a huge fan of musicals. His favorite is Hamilton.
Cloud doesn’t have a favorite food. He’ll eat about anything.
What’s his family like?
Cloud’s family is… dead. His mom died when he was little. His dad remarried and then he died later. And then Cloud’s step-mom was bad. It was a Cinderella-story, really, without the fairy godmother.
Why he would be a great date?
Despite the fact that Cloud is a bit egotistic at times, he is really sweet and would want to make sure his date was always happy.
Things he values:
Time. He doesn’t want to waste a minute of his life and wants to live to the fullest. He also values honesty.
What he would do for a first date?
Going out for a coffee or lunch is his idea of a good first date. It’s a safe, no pressure thing that doesn’t even have to be called a date.
Looking for long term relationship or just a quick date?
Cloud wants long term relationship, but doesn’t want to commit until he knows his date well. He doesn’t want to make the same mistake his dad did when he married Cloud’s step-mom but hardly knew her.
We’ve had our pros, what are the cons?
Cloud milks his Cinderella backstory for all the fame he can. He is constantly in media, including tabloids. If you date him, you’d be in the media, too.
Flowers , chocolate, or promises he doesn’t intend to keep?
Flowers to start. Chocolate would come later in the relationship. And promises wouldn’t be made at all– Cloud knows that promises can’t always be kept, but he wants to do everything he can to be truthful and honorable.
I have no photo of Cloud, but I have a cute song and if Cloud could write songs, he’d write a similar one.
And that’s Cloud. What do you think? Good date? If you want to do this tag, please do! Use the banner and comment with a link to your post!
