as inspired by wdlove, you can also call this thread "the dating thread," though i liked wdlove's unwitting reference to everyone's favorite thread. so i ask the question to you--what makes a date? what makes a good date? is there any point to dating? do you think there's anything wrong with the "modern" "system" of dating? care to share some good/bad experiences, give pointers to the rest of us computer-bound losers? have at you, guys!
