On Sunday, the Washington Post ran a "brite" about a new online dating service geared toward a specific subset of society for which traditional dating websites have proven unsuccessful: geeks. The new dating site, Geek 2 Geek promises that "...whether you're looking for romance or just friendship, this is the place to hook up. There is no appearance information on profiles (no pictures either), true geeks just don't care about looks. Besides, our experience tells us that most people lie about their looks on other sites. Looks are not how our members form relationships..."
"Well," thinks the perpetually dateless, hovering on 40, big geek girl Merujo, "let's test drive this baby..."
Looking for a male... age 37 to 42... 20 mile radius from my zip code...
I get one hit.
He's 37. 20 miles away.
Aaaaaand, he's a crossdresser who loves to watch "Desperate Housewives".
I think I will stick to job hunting this week...
But I'm pathetic enough to bookmark this site. Maybe there will be a non-crossdresser who likes Amazing Race next time.
