Be Afraid

I just watched this interesting little documentary telling the stories of five people who go about finding love on the internet. It's called When Strangers Click, and at just under an hour in length it is worth in entertainment value the time invested to view it. Having my own internet dating experiences to compare with these, I could relate to much of what they described. And at four out of five happy endings, their rate of success beats the crap out of mine! At several points during the show, factoids would pop up on the screen to enlighten us all just a bit further. My favorite was a pair of questions asking what women and men fear the most about online dating. Women feared meeting up with a serial killer. Men, on the other hand, worried they would meet someone who was fat. Oof. Our brains really are different.
