Friday Fun: Spring = Looking For Love

03/25/2005

LookofloveSpring has finally come to Atlanta and in the words of Alfred Loyd Tennyson - "In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love."  Young or old...diva or divor...spring is a time to be young at heart and in love.

Friday Fun brings you a new twist on an the old online dating deal. Nerve, a rather edgy dating site, has a reality blog dating contest going on. Six members are chosen to blog. After following the blogging daters for 6-weeks, members rate the blogs. Of course, in keep with all good reality TV shows, the lowest scorer is out and a new member is chosen to blog.
Heard it from: Portals and KM

Sidebar:  Online Personals/Dating remained the leading paid content category in 2004, with spending at an all-time high of $469.5 million for the year, up 4% over 2003. Online Publishers Association Released March 2005.
Light Bulb Flash!
- Why are dating sites not including blogs for ALL members? Seems like a no brainer to moi!

Question: What do you do if you’re a hot divo who is better at creating code than elegant prose? Or a dashing diva who is having a blond moment and clever words are blocked? Answer: Hire a personal-ad coach!

The price of love is high. Be prepared, refinements to your online dating ad don’t come cheap. An ad can run the cost of a few drinks, about $30 for help from Match.com , to the price of a gourmet dinner chu ching!  $150 for a telephone chat and full-fledged edit from PersonalsTrainer. The WSJ (subscription needed) has the story.

And...no, this diva is not in love..but from that great Sinatra tune - Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you. If you’re young at heart ;-) Sidebar: Keep that in mind Divos P & T and everyone else who is looking for love.
