In the classic romantic comedy Sleepless in Seattle, Tom Hanks plays a man whose wife recently succumbed to cancer. His son wants him to get a new wife, so he calls into a radio show and sells the entire country on this wonderful widower, his father. One woman, played by Meg Ryan, becomes rather obsessed with the guy, and eventually they meet and, we assume, fall in love.
Almost 24 years later, a real-life version of Sleepless in Seattle may be brewing. Author Amy Krouse Rosenthal, who is mostly known for children’s books, wrote an article in the Style section of the New York Times pimping out her own husband. Rosenthal has been diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer and is hoping to leave her man in good hands.
Unlike Hanks’s character in Sleepless, this future widower doesn’t have a little boy to do his wanted or unwanted bidding. The Rosenthals’ kids are all grown up. And presumably the husband knew she was going to publish this admitted dating profile for him in one of the widest-read newspapers in the world.
This wouldn’t be the first true romance seemingly inspired by the 1993 movie. In 2008, an Iraq War vet married a woman whose young daughter set them up via pen pal correspondence. Other couples have probably found each other through similar means, whether its a child’s plotting or through some form of media attention. But there have likely been fewer in the age of Catfish.
