According to a recent study, internet dating is the second-most common way for couples to meet (I think, blacked out nights at the local watering hole is number one, but I may need to cross reference that). An amazing 22 PERCENT of the couples surveyed met through dating websites. In contrast, Prior to 1978, only .02 percent of couples met online (which personally I find kinda high, considering the fact that the internet sort of, kind of, didn’t exist back then). Point is, the dating landscape has changed and you might need to get over your fear of internet stalkers, awkward conversations and the potential of a chubbo, to find the one you’ve been waiting for.
After my $5,000 victory (THANK YOU, BY THE WAY) on a one minute short, I’ve decided to become more aggressive in getting involved in film/writing projects. One of these projects is PLENTY OF MITCH, a webispode series that follows the internet dating adventures of Mitch, a down on his luck illustrator, and his friends, Jamie and Marco (pictured)…
It hasn’t been released yet (it will be released in the coming weeks), but it is absolutely hilarious, has a great cast and high production value. If you’ve been on a date with someone you met online and it was TERRIBLE you will definitely relate to the misadventures the guys will go through. Even if you haven’t, you can live vicariously through them and laugh along the way.
Here’s a link to the facebook page for you to get updates on when it will be released, behind the scenes info and more! Don’t forget to also like the HAHABUDA facebook page, while you are at it. Thanks!
