Money Match #2: "IM," Chicago female seeking male

Madame X the Matchmaker now introduces our first female single, a frugal lady known as IM:


Here's her message:

Frugal Fundamentals
Im a frugal girl at heart who loves nice stuff but loves her bank balance a little more. Im 28 and already own two properties, one investment and one condo. All of that was only possible by saving and not falling prey to crazy consumerism.

The thing that makes me happiest? - Finding an awesome piece of art at a local yard sale. I live in Chicago and am interested in finding someone who takes pride in being understated...yes...thats right...Im not impressed by flashy cars and $3k purses. He should love reading, be a dog lover and know how to balance his checkbook. (Besides being independent and cool...)

ps: NO I dont smoke...this was staged :)

Wow, a 28-year old who saved enough to buy two properties AND has a really hot photo? Chicago area gentlemen, this could be your lucky day! If you'd like to woo IM, email your frugal flirting response to openwallet1 [at symbol] yahoo [dot] com and I'll forward it to her. Who knows, perhaps you could be her solvent soulmate!

You too can send in a personal ad! Details in this post.

IM, you are gorgeous! (and I like your frugal attitude) Wish I didn't live in california...

I don't know about this one, claims to not be impressed by things, yet feels the need to look what... sophisticated, Parisian, cosmopolitan, by smoking? I think the lady doth protest too much.

People are quick to judge aren't they? :)

Cool idea though!

I like your new 'match-making' service; such a community 'outreacher' MadameX ... although I'm waiting for you to enter the market.

I have 5 rental homes (that are in no danger of foreclosure) and am going to B school in the fall.

maybe you can hook me up with your dating service - let me just make sure the wife is ok with it ;-P

Oh I've practically fallen for her and her dog already! If only I lived in Chicago....

Hi guys...this is IM here. Thanks for the sweet comments. The pic was taken in a different city (not paris) in a different time. :) Who says you cant be sophisticated, frugal AND fun? As for the cigarette, it was staged for the perfect effect... Cmon, a lady's got to have some fun right? Besides, with cigarettes being over 8 bucks a pack, I would be insane to claim to be frugal with that kind of habit. Madame X, thank you for this excellent blog.... I've always loved reading your posts and some of the fantastic responses that go with it. Bidding you adieu....a Chicago gal (with 2 awesome dogs..)
