Modern romance

My pal Chad is really into karaoke. (As am I.) Apparently he says so on his online-dating profiles, and here’s what happens when a nice young lady doesn’t heed his warning:

Done and done. Easy peasy.

Now, before you rip on Chad for being so quick to pass, and before you rip on this nice young lady for not branching out more at karaoke, think about it… Back in the old days, it might take you 10 years of marriage (followed by a bitter divorce) to figure out that it wasn’t going to work because the only song she’d karaoke was “Gangsta’s.” Modern romance cuts right to the chase!

(Also, be sure to check out DJ Purple’s debut at SoMa StrEat Food Park this Saturday night!)

    I have no problem with this. Why put stuff in your profile if it isn’t gonna make a difference?
    And Gangsta’s Paradise is bad enough, it’s especially egregious if its the ONLY song you karaoke. WTF.

      Gangsta’s is super fun though. I’ve done it seven times (according to my karaoke diary) and it pretty much never gets old.

      • suckerpunch says:

        I’m sure its fun for the singer.

        Anyways, it wasn’t so much about the particular song choice, it was about the apparent fear of having more than one song to go to.
        This dude apparently loves to karaoke. Is he supposed to sing 20 songs, while the love of his life sings only one? Not gonna work.
