miss match 12 - an even dozen
OKCupid is a fun site that is designed for matchmaking, and caters to, but is not limited to, dating of all stripes - long term, short term, "intimate." They also have a category for "friends" which means you can just look for like-minded people to hang out with or pursue your favorite activities alongside. It also takes the pressure off potential dating scenarios, since you can frame things as being friends first, which is what I actually prefer. Match is a little too serious, a little too "I want the love of my life." Hey, I might be looking for the love of my life (ultimately...), but I want the experience to be fun!
So OKCupid has myriad personality quizzes and a journal option that lets you lay down what you're thinking about and see who responds.
Oh, and Comic Book Guy is from this website also. We met last Saturday! He is loads of fun! I actually want to keep seeing him! That, right there, is reason enough this website is better, I think.
