Match maker, match maker, make me a match

Written to: Black Eyed Peas - Rock That Body

Wow it's been aaages since I posted!

Right, so, dating agencies and advertisements.

I have nothing against websites like match.com for getting couples together, it's all rather endearing that they have things to talk about before they meet..blah, blah blah. The key part of online dating though is that, generally, these people will be sat at home on their computer/laptop/pda logging onto the website to meet people.

Why, then, do match.com's advertisements show couples meeting in day-to-day, face-to-face situations? In the animated versions a guy stops a lift for a girl and one eventually snuggles up to a girl under her umbrella. In the most recent ones, the pair exchange flirty glances across a shop. All these suggest that the couples/dates/conquest are a 'success'.

Okay, an advert of people sitting on laptops is not exciting and match.com just want to get people together but this doesn't even advertise their product properly. They are basically saying 'you'll probably meet somebody while you're out and about, just wait'.

Which is what we are all desperately doing anyway..!

Pub Dilemma #7

Written to: Telephone - Lady GaGa and Beyonce


Would you rather not be able to taste any food or lose the feeling 'down there' (otherwise known as an orgasm, More!)?

Ha, well, I won't linger on to this for too long because no-one probably cares, but it has to be food all the way. Could you imagine if you were feeling crap and couldn't eat that chocolate to get you by? Or you picked up that kebab on a night out and didn't appreciate the taste of it reducing the vile VKs you've been drinking all night?

There would no need for restaurants, and that is not good. Not good at all my friends.

So long as everything worked 'down there', you could have children and the guy was happy, you'd be alright, right?
