What do they do with the batches of clothing that are misprinted? Send them to Haiti?

I need clarification here. FTFA: "Most attempts at "online dating" fail" - do they mean out of total dates one goes on, or is this a complete generalization? I ask because I, my sister, and my father all met our spouses through online dating sites.  Also a good friend met his wife in a chat room about 12+ years ago, before the dating sites were really a big thing. If it's such a big failure, explain that to me...

They match nicely with the "19-0 New England Super Bowl" shirts

I think it might be a bit higher due to the ease of getting a date on the sites.. so lots of first dates and whatnot. But once in a relationship, I doubt the numbers are any different than regular relationships.

Online dating fails when people treat browsing the dating sites the same way they go shopping for electronics: they want the best available product for the minimum possible outlay, and free 2-day shipping.  People who do this are literally objectifying their potential partners, and their counterparts are likely doing the same; everyone ends up unhappy and wondering why nobody seems to be treating them like a human being.

Match.com Events is the smartest idea in the space in years, and I'm glad it's being copied by everyone else: get those sad people out from behind their computers and into real-world interaction with each other, and it no longer becomes socially okay to ignore somebody just because you think their profile photo isn't hott enough.

After I went out with a few of those, I rewrote my profile to be a lot more cynical and realistic. Lordfortuna metaphorically shoved all potential rivals out of the way by acting quickly to get in touch with me...

To be fair, the novel thing here seems to be that the shirt is printed with a unique code that ties in to their dating site.

It's clever, but I still don't see it working.

Lol that's cool. One of my friends meet his wife of five years (and counting) on match.com. they work well together.

There's a dating site out here that sends 3 'matched' couples on a date together.  I guess under the premise that it would be less intimidating to go out on a first date with more people.  Mrs. Relax and I were at a Thai restaurant when 3 of these couples arrived.  The women were all dressed like they were on date.  The guys all looked like they were dressed to watch football in a sports bar.  I genuinely felt bad for both genders.  The women because they were putting in some effort and meeting guys who were probably a tier or two below what they are looking for and the guys because they obviously don't get it and are wondering why fun loving guys like themselves can't seem to meet women.

Succinctly put. Nothing like a bunch of strangers hawking themselves to strangers. I think it should be called, "Unrealistic Expectations".

dear guys - > problems getting laid? go to sweden. the guys there are so obsessed with videogames and pornography that all you have to do is go to a bar and say 'Hi!' to a woman there and she'll like the attention so much she'll basically be in your lap. of cours... VIDEOGAMES? PORNOGRAPHY? OH MAN LET'S GO TO SWEDEN.
 
2013-05-07 11:01:23 PM  
This will be about as effective as those "single people with their triangulated coordinates plotted on a map" mobile apps.


poot_rootbeer, I would add that online dating also fails because it has become a vehicle for narcissism. They can't get enough on twitter and facebook,so they sign up on dating sites to fulfill their needs. Even Match has its fair share of attention whores.

The problem is that Swedish women are not hot.

When do online daters have time to wear an "I'm available" shirt?

Can't wear them at work. Don't need to wear them in the evening while messaging the ladies online. When on dates, the dress code is unlikely to include such a shirt... and most of the time the shirt is inside my place or hers.

It's been my experience that all a man needs to get the interest of a woman in this particular area is a fondness for animals and a sense of humor.

We have an up-until-recently-single friend who used to come over and snuggle one or another of the cats to acquire a subtle coating of kitty hairs before going out. Then, presumably, he'd inform his date that "I was pet-sitting for my friends today," and it apparently worked for him. But then, he wound up with a vet-tech, so YMMV.

In a gay bar, that would probably work.
