Not Getting Any Online Dates? Makeover Time!

If you're attempting to get a date online (hey it's the 21st century people, there ain't no shame in it!) it may be time for an online makeover. Or at least that's what the New York Times seems to think. The Times reported that businesses like Dating-Profile.com and ProfileHelper.com are helping people seeking love online by spicing up their profiles on dating Web sites with a little sexy appeal and writing the words for you" for anywhere from $39 to $2,000.




Personally, I'm of the camp that thinks having someone else beef up your photos and profile is slightly unethical...but then again, I know we all appreciate our "friend in common" sharing all the best details about us with prospective dates. In this age of Photoshopping and hip-online marketing, do you think it's fair to let a second-party amp up your romantic eligibility?

I don't think there's anything wrong with getting some advice, but I draw the line at photoshopping to alter what you actually look like. -Bug

I recently had a middle school girl ask me if she could use my phone as I was walking to the train stop. At first, I was like "Oh, of course", but then I thought kids can be just as bad as anyone, so then I just asked her what she needed to make a phone call for. She needed to call her mother to pick her up from a train stop b/c her ride was late picking her up from school. So, of course I let her use my phone, but I just told her I had to dial the phone myself. It was fine, she was quick on the phone and handed it back and said 'Thank you'. I try not to be so paranoid, but being in downtown all the time...it's kind of hard.
