LOVE is in the air.

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Rockhampton's own Cupid, Bonnie Wells, is searching for women willing to bare their romantic side.

The local freelance stripper is constantly bombarded by men looking for love, so she decided to take matters into her own hands and set up dating service Personalized Blind Dates CQ on Facebook.

"I'm one of Rockhampton's main local strippers and I have a lot of male friends always asking if I have any single friends who are looking to date," Ms Wells said.

"I already have a lovely boyfriend but I want to help others find partners.

"I thought there might be a bit of a market there so I decided to set up a blind dating service to host singles nights and things like picnics and lunches."

Ms Wells hopes to host her first blind date on Valentine's Day this Saturday but said there was just one problem; no ladies are looking for love.

"The problem is, there are no girls interested so far," she said.

"I'm hoping to find people that aren't pretentious and don't care about looks, but care about other people's souls.

"I think a lot of people have had bad experiences dating. It's not that they're afraid to put themselves out there, it's just they haven't been able to find someone who is compatible with them."

If anyone is interested in giving love a chance this Valentine's Day or in the future, phone Ms Wells on 0432359423.
