You're on your desktop, (complete with tube monitor) and you're just surfing the inter-webs on Yahoo! or downloading free songs on Napster. All of a sudden, you hear a high-pitched, almost angelic sound: "Uh Oh!"
You look down and there it is, that blinking, titillating message icon. It's not going anywhere unless you open it. Who could it be from? You won't know unless you click. That feeling of excitement and euphoria when getting those messages....Let's bring it back, people!
What does that observation tell you about me? I'm nostalgic. I'm nerdy. I love the internet and all it's messy, eclectic, intelligent glory. Combine that with the act of socialization and here we have online dating. Why not give it a whirl?
