Cowboy Cupid of Love

In my researching soul mates, I come upon such cute and quirky stories that really make me indulge in a little free reading to see what it's all about. This one was one of the funniest I have read so far.

There's a man down in New Mexico called Cowboy Cupid of Love (Ivan Thompson) that specializes in setting up "good ol' boys" with wives. Sort of like a Match.com sort of thing, but he's a one man show. Pay him $3,000 up-front and you're good to go.

His "business" caught the eye of a filmmaker who has turned his booming business into an award-winning documentary titled "Cowboy Del Amor" that's currently playing in select theaters across the country and will be released via Netfliz on April 4. The documentary focuses on Thompson's quest to help the average guy-one is a truck driver, another a car salesman—find love.

As a relationship advice expert (ahem) focusing on the soul mate experience, I find it quite amusing that there would be anyone even remotely interested in taking him up on his offer, but he claims he's had 400 clients. So if you're in the market for a wife, Cowboy Cupid of Love is your ticket. Of course, if you're in the market for a soul mate, better to pocket your $3,000 and let nature take its course.

Happy trails!

  1. Geez, that's a lot of fritos. But then, look what kind of business he is running. I don't want to be harsh but it reeks of "Cherry Blossoms."

  2. Does seem a tad odd, until you realise how many men pick wives online, then it almost sounds romantic, lol! I guess it's a case of whatever works ;o)

  5. If you think this is funny, you should read his book "Cowboy Cupid." It's fall-down funny.

    (I think you have to buy it direct from him, or his website)

  6. This movie is an absolute tragedy. The only thing funny about this is how his biological children are never mentioned in his movie, or interviews. Yep, that's right, he has two biological children. Someone needs to contact his "American" wife of 17 years or his kids so they can shed some light on how wonderful he treats women and children *sarcastic tone*.

  7. Wow, interesting, Anonymous. If he is supposed to be the cowboy of love or something like that, why DOESN'T he talk about his wife or biological children? Maybe the movie centered on his business and left out his personal life?

  8. I'm pretty sure that's why the director did the movie: a matchmaker that mismanages his own love life. And, he does focus on his personal life some with his hispanic ex-wife and her step children that everyone has been told that he still supports. Too bad he couldn't do that for his own biological children. Of course, I'm sure it never mentions how the hispanic wife stabbed him with a pair of scissors either. He's made out to look like a hero, when in reality he's nothing but a zero. Maybe someone should ask him why he does leave those facts out. And as far as love goes, the only person he loves is himself.

  9. LOL, this is the most hilarious thing I've ever heard. Tragic, but so unreal that it's hilarious. She stabbed him??? Wonder what he did to deserve that one!
