because I feel like we are on the verge of another MS lovelife thread with all the potential of his foray into internet dating. Unlikely. The online dating thread held a lowest-common-denominator appeal to the masses, much like the Springer show. I don't have too many interesting thoughts on the topic at hand so I expect it won't be nearly as effective in getting people interested or riled up. I am expecting: - 10% serious, thought-provoking replies - 60% passive-aggressive jokes implicitly mocking the fact that I am starting a thread on romance - 30% insipid romance vignettes and trite dating advice I guess I am posting for that 10%. We'll see how on the money I am with my predictions.
