So I creep!Yeeeeah.
Haven't updated your LinkedIn for a while?It might be time to groom the ol' online resume,because a new dating website calledHitch.me(although I'd almost prefer MarryMyA**.net) allows users to troll through LinkedIn profiles in order to filter through people based on their jobs...and nobody will ever know.The founder of the website,a 29-year-old married father,told theToronto Starthat he was struck with the idea when his single friends complained that they couldn't find any "good" people on the big dating sites.
But that's not true!One friend of mine who online dates said she went out with a professional chinchilla salesman!And another one went out with a guy attempting to invent a teeny forest full of teeny little fruit trees and call it "Thumbelina's Garden," aah!Those guys both sound like winners to me,so I guess it all depends on your definition of "good." I'm not kidding.If I owned anything made of chinchilla I would immediately feel about 75 percent more like Queen Bey.
In all seriousness,many friends of mine have found that the people they meet online--for better or for worse--are more of the "waiter/artist/actor/writer/musician" variety than the stable career variety,which is clearly the main source of Hitch.me's appeal.Over 700 people have already signed up in the first 24 hours of its launch,but I gotta admit,I'd feel a bit strange about mixing business with (derp!) pleasure.
But what about youonline datingpros?Does Hitch.me sound somewhat more promising for the career-driven than the other dating sites?
