I think online dating is getting weirder by the minute. Just take Purrsonals (facepalm for worst dating related pun I’ve ever seen) – an online dating site for cat lovers. Or Singles with food allergies - because when I look for a lover, I need them to have the same aversion to peanuts, shellfish and gluten as me. We have even reached the point where chimpazees have turned to online dating to find their mates.
Plenty of Mitch – a webseries on online dating written and directed by a friend of mine – has finally launched episode 2! There’s no furries, food allergies or chimps in this episode… but it may have something that you have experienced… SLUMPBUSTERS. Don’t know what that is… well watch away.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about a web series that I was helping out with, Plenty of Mitch, which follows the (mis)adventures of a group of guys testing the waters of internet dating. As the show goes on, you’ll see the good, the bad and the (overwhelmingly) ugly side of meeting strangers on the interwebs. Well, i’ve got some good news, the first episode has launched!
The hilarious first episode sets the stage for all the craziness that will occur as the show continues. Will Mitch find love or is this a train wreck waiting to happen? Will Jamie ever get a date with a non-Louie/non-Leper? What is Dean’s (aka Danger’s) secret to his luck with the ladies?
So, have you had any terrible dating stories? I’ve never gone on one (my parents did once offer to buy me a match.com account…), but I’ve heard HORRIBLE STORIES from friends: from burn victims who can only talk about their injuries to guys who buy three long islands before the entree… I don’t know if it’s a world I want to explore. I’ll just live vicariously through the guys on Plenty of Mitch.
