Online Dating Is Planned for Orangutans

Greetings from Maine. It’s raining like a multi-hottie pep pyramid up here and the wind is blowing the deck furniture around in a way that reminds me of scary wolves. And there isn’t even any time to go to the Moultonborough Loon Museum.

I wish I had time to write about this earlier but I was either toiling or driving or quietly wishing Jeff Tweedy would punch someone in the face or getting harassed by the DCist staff on the internet and then later in person on the street.

My car radio really only needs 2 preset stations: WTOP and WAMU. The rest of the stations around here blow like scary wolf wind. XM is okay most of the time and I’m not really sure what this HD Radio is all about. That’s why I stick to the more talk less cock formats.

But I don’t like it when my babies fight. Last night, the evening news anchor on TOP welcomed the “public radio refugees” to 103.5, especially if they were tied of all the “begging” that was going on down the dial.

Kids! There is no need for that kind of language. I have love in my heart both of you. WAMU, you have deliberative, international long-form segments. WTOP, you have Monkey News. Thanks be to both.

Did you ever listen to the Ricky Gervais podcast? They had a regular monkey news segment, too.

I recently published an article on the complexities of dating in general and blind dating and online dating in particular – here is a quote from it, in case you are interested:

How to create your profile?
1. Make a realistic profile. Try to show your best qualities without lying about something you are not. Try to find out what exactly appreciate the other at you;
2. List the most important features you expect your partner to have, but don’t exaggerate, just stick to the real life;
3. Learn to recognize a cheater from a sincere person by reading that person’s profile or by asking a set of questions that would reveal that person’s ego;
4. Start by chatting with more than one person;
5. Try to communicate with that person in an open manner;
6. Study the other’s profiles to help your create a more attractive profile for yourself;
7. Save yourself if necessary and don’t let these kind of virtual reality seize you completely. Give yourself more options in your life and consider virtual reality as one of the many, and not the only way.
