Fun With Internet Dating

(p.s. co-creator and i are very much open to blog title changes, since, true as it is right now, it is not descriptive.)

I feel like it should have a little blurb at the top explaining the entries are. i.e "These are e-mail responses we got to our online dating ads".

i like the title...James Wright reference neh?

But some of these entries seem like you've mistaken Pure Awesome for Blunders.

"first of ten verses

In 1984 I was hospitalized for approaching perfection. Slowly screwing my way across Europe, they had to make a correction. Broken and smokin’ where the infrared deer plunge in the digital snake. I tell you, they make it so you can’t shake hands when they make your hands shake.

That's a Silver Jews song.

So I’m reading your profile, reading the lines and between the lines, and what I see is a shameless hedonist who does a mexican bandito accent when she’s drunk.

Great site, I can't wait for it to take off so I will have more content to read! The title does need some work. What about something that involves online dating speak, like a/s/l?

i think we are going to stick with the title because it describes our own lives so well. in-jokey, sure, but eh. (was totally thinking of the a/s/l thing when we were still brainstorming, though!)

do you guys have any ideas on how to promote the site better? obviously i can't self-link on metafilter, but we're itching to make this take off!

we are already using

Great fun to read. I'm afraid I do have to agree, though, that the check background is pretty awful. Sorry!
