While I fully support the decision many New Yorkers are making to go solo in love and lodging, for those of us who have four roommates, two cats, a couple stray dogs and a constant rotation of couch surfers and still feel lonely, finding a partner is both fiscally and emotionally responsible. That is, finding someone I actually like to split the rent on a sweet one bedroom and get laid regularly. Of course, I still hope my love story will start by brushing fingertips as we reach for the same gnarly heirloom tomato at the greenmarket.But given that I don’t live in an HBO dramedy version of Brooklyn, and taking into consideration that about 75% of my time is spent online, it seems only logical to look online for my future co-tenant in life, love and the pursuit of an adult living situation.
Cons: Seems to be more about promoting your band than dating.To give you an idea, I received a message on the first day I signed up that read “30% less creepy than most” from Hungarian Salami.Also, a significant number of the messages were written in text shorthand (“i wud like 2 speak 2 u and c wutsup wit gettin 2 kno each other”).But I imagine this is also good for other niche communities, e.g., bloggers/journalists in New York. The site builds profiles from your Facebook profile, plus a few generic questions about who you are and what you are looking for.The database uses Facebook to filter out people in your social circle so you won’t accidentally end up on a date with a colleague or someone connected to an ex.I found loads of very good looking dudes and I was not classified as elite (which I also disagree with, for the record).
