I know this is a rant post, but check out Yahoo Personals if you haven't yet. Multiple coworkers are having good success with it (one's even marrying somebody she found there)-- they say there are fewer douchebags on it than OKCupid. It works pretty well in our area because people actually use it here, so I don't know if it would be useful in your neck of the woods.

I am on twitter way more than I am on here, same user name, if you'd like up-to-minute effika.

The only thing I despise more than e-dating is social networking of any type. ;) Twitter, facebook, myspace, you name it.. won't find me on it. =P

Oh well.

P.S. Yahoo personals was just sold to match.com. Last time I used that (maybe a year ago when I first ended a 3.5 year relationship) there were 7 "matches" for me in a 1500 mile radius.

Well, there goes Yahoo Personals, I suppose.

Lately, the way I look at Twitter is more along the lines of "What stupid stuff can I get archived?" now that the Library of Congress is archiving tweets.

I'm with Effika in that I know this is a rant post, but my sister found her husband on match.com. So... I guess it's not all bad. I did find some d-bag med students from my school on it, though, and their profiles were awful.

Don't misunderstand, I think it's possible that those services are useful in major cities. Not where I live, however.

You can subscribe to twitter via RSS (you don't need to make an account to follow someone). That's what I do.

I made my own android app for it. Boredom has it's benefits.

See, that's TOTALLY something you needed to tweet, to let the world know about. :-P

Site specific browsers are nothing new, if that's what it is.

I found my GF on OKC. She's pretty damn awesome and I think we make a great couple, even just on paper.

Note that this isn't an endorsement of the site, but because it is free, I think it is less worse than other personals media (I've tried a few others, e.g. match.com).

OkCupid rejected my sister for the site. Haha. I swear she's not that weird.

Correction, I think it was eHarmony.
