OK, never mind, I am a fuddy-Luddy

I was just crowing a few posts ago about how cutting-edge I am compared with this curmudgeonly college kid who doesn’t think anybody could possibly meet online, and then I found this site vis this story on Wired, stuffed with references I mostly don’t get. (Though when visiting my nephews, I played so much Tetris that I dreamed about it one night. I asked them if that happened to them; they play hours of video games a week. They said No.)

Anyway, i’m in like with you seems like pure aggravating time-suck with lots of annoying beeps, and I realized the Wired guy’s assertion that this

dating site with bidding, competition, winners, and losers — you pose questions (or “games,” in the parlance of the service) for potential mates to bid on, and the resulting interactions are less stilted and artificial than conventional online dating services. That’s right, a gamelike environment feels more real than trying to mimic the experience of real-world dating.

does not apply to my experience of “feeling real.”
