    stakes; hitched

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "stakes" and "hitched" in the following context:

    Luck in the love and romance stakes are above average. There is passion on the cards if you are looking for it. Single Boars trying to hitched may require the help from some good friends. If you're serious about meeting someone you can hit it off with, don't close your options or strike off someone from the list just because a fussy old aunt introduced them to you. You never know where love will make an appearance, so keep your mind open.

    Does "stakes" mean reward, favorable/positive outcome?

    Does "trying to hitched" mean "trying to start a relationship"?
    Dictionaries say that "get hitched" means "get married" but I think that in this context it means "to start a relatioship".

    Re: stakes; hitched

    Luck in the love and romance stakes (interests or bets on romance) are above average. There is passion on the cards if you are looking for it. Single Boars trying to hitched (hitch up? or "get hitched" may just mean to "hook up" with someone - as in "get together"may require the help from some good friends. If you're serious about meeting someone you can hit it off with, don't close your options or strike off someone from the list just because a fussy old aunt introduced them to you. You never know where love will make an appearance, so keep your mind open.

    This sounds like an astrological message of the day
