NEW YORK (AP) Finding your better half this Valentine's Day
could be as easy as hailing a taxi especially if Ahmed Ibrahim is
in the driver's seat.

The 53-year-old cupid cab driver, as he refers to himself, has
spent the past few years playing matchmaker to lonely New Yorkers,
setting up more than 70 dates. Nineteen have led to relationships
that lasted more than a year.

Ibrahim planned to decorate his yellow cab with red and white
hearts and roses for Thursday.

"I've organized so many dates, and it really makes me feel good
about it,'' Ibrahim said. "I've not had one complaint.''

Ibrahim said he offers his matchmaking services to passengers he
evaluates by listening to conversations and asking a few questions.
He then exchanges phone numbers and e-mail addresses.

"I want to know if they're the real deal or just a player,'' he
said. "If you're a player, then forget about it.''

One of his clients, Martin Karamon, said he successfully found
romance through the cupid cab's services. The relationship ended
after about six months, though the two remain friends.

"I might have to get in his cab again because I just broke up
with my girlfriend,'' said Karamon, 37.
