YA Indie Carnival: Personal Ads of Characters

This week at the Carnival we are going to write personal ads for famous characters from books.  What would their personal ads say if they were to put some out?  I'm going to do mine like a guessing game.  I will put up a personal ad without a name.  See if you can figure out who the character is and what book they are from.  Answers will be in the Comments section.  Check to see how many you got right.

1.  Single white female seeking goodlooking boy who sparkles.  I am ordinary looking and a bit of a klutz.  New in town, I need someone to show me around.  Since I don't have any hobbies or interests of my own, I need someone who will take over every aspect of my life.  I'm also a bit of a danger magnet, so you may need to rescue me now and then.  Age doesn't matter.  I can appreciate an older man.  Unusual colored eyes are a plus.  You don't have to worry about me cheating on you, unless you disappear for months at a time, then all bets are off.

2.  Single white male seeking companion for a dangerous adventure.  I work in the shadows and have a mystery to solve.  I'm extremely good looking, charming, and possess mad skills.  Only a special girl can see me.  Are you that girl?  I have a fondness for redheads with freckles and love to argue.  Can you keep up with me?  I live in an old church with my stepfamily and travel to exotic locations few humans know about.  No screamers please.  I prefer a girl who can hold her own in a fight.

3.  Single white male seeking sweet girl who doesn't mind all the baggage.  You can confide anything in me.  I'm good at keeping secrets.  I wear glasses and love to read.  When I can I find jobs in bookstores and libraries.  It's hard because I move around a lot.  My mother lives with me, but don't worry about her.  She rarely comes out of her room.  My younger brother also lives with me.  He's a bit strange and scares the crap out of most people, but I'm hoping he's just kidding when he claims not to feel anything for anyone.  Oh yes, and he carries a sword.  You don't need to worry about that.  He's never used it on a human, at least not yet.  If I haven't scared you away, give me a call and we'll meet for coffee. 

4.  Single white female seeking former vampire with unusual powers.  I know you're out there somewhere.  The faerie's journal says I'll find you soon.  The two of us are destined to kill the head werewolf and save the world.  I've seen you in my dreams.  Now I can't love anyone but you.  It doesn't matter to me if you have fangs and a taste for human blood.  I can take care of myself.  I'm THE werewolf hunter.  My father will threaten you with his shotgun once you're mortal again, but I won't let him kill you.  We are destiny.  No one can stop us from being together.
