Woman Selling House and Love Online: Savvy or Sad?

Craigslist and eBay have been the stomping grounds for some interesting sellers recently: there's the Australian dude who found a buyer to take over his life, the bride who found Dr. Pepper to sponsor her wedding, and now a Florida resident is selling her home along with a chance at love. These are certainly unique efforts and shows that some people aren't shy to take chances during tough times.

Deven Trabosh is a homeowner in South Florida and a 42-year-old single mother searching for love. Her home was on the market for a year before she conceptualized her plan to combine her real estate and romantic needs. The ads posted on Craiglist and eBay invited potential buyers to "Marry a Princess Lost in America," and she explained to reporters, "I'm struggling. I don't want to lose my house, and I want to find somebody. So I came up with this dream plan, because I've always dreamed about being a fairy-tale princess."

She's received 500 responses but none of them have been serious offers. What do you think of her dream plan? Is it savvy or sad?
