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!

Lonely homeless cowboy seeks ‘girlfrind’ and travel

Great ideas

Love at first pat-down

From Missed Connections:

Security ID checker at SFO – w4w (SFO)

When: Saturday night, June 21 around 8:30

You: Super cute girl working the security line checking ID’s at SFO. You chatted with me, wondering why I was going to Newark – said, “Its not cold enough here for you?”

Me: Short dark hair, glasses, apparently incapable of human conversation in the face of unanticipated humor from an attractive woman. You asked my last name. I spelled it. Its a miracle I’ve made it this far in life.

I’ll be back in a few weeks. Let me prove to you that I can complete a sentence. Yeah? :) [link]

Z Dating Game graduates from Z Below to the Z Space main stage this Z Saturday night!

Z Dating Game is the Mission’s very own version of the classic TV game show, but it boasts boatloads more booze and also lots of cursing. Co-producers Jack Morse and Rob Ready have done it a few times in Z Space’s small, underground space Z Below, but this weekend they’re moving to the main stage! (Congrats, boys!) And check it out, they whipped up a little Q&A just for us:

How does the show work?

A bachelor or bachelorette comes on stage and questions three potential dates with inquisitive gems like “Do you like horses? Defend your answer.” And, “When was the last time you hate fucked?” After a few rounds of questions, the bachelor(ette) picks a date and Z Space sets them up with dinner for two and tickets to a show… at Z Space!

AND for people who don’t get picked, TheRealMatchmaker.com is going to set them up on a date of their own so they get a second chance at love.

Why is this going to be hella dope?

It’s real singles, who are really looking for a date. They’re all hot twenty/thirty-somethings from the neighborhood, and you get to watch and heckle the entire time.

Also, the show is a fundraiser for Z Space, which is pretty much the coolest non-profit theater in San Francisco.

AND we’ve got some amazing local artists on the bill – PianoFight, Mission CTRL, Super Nova Desert Eagle, and a kickin’ house band.

Oh, we also have the best damn drink specials on Earth.

Is this only for straight people?

Nope! There’s a round for straight men and a round for straight women, but there is also a lesbian round and a gay round.

How do the artists work into the show?

The different acts will weave in and out of each round. So, when one contestant is asked to sing a love song to the bachelor(ette), that person will be backed up by the awesome house band. Or when a contestant describes his or her most embarrassing sexual encounter, the super serious, contact improv troupe Super Nova Desert Eagle will immortalize that encounter on stage via interpretive dance.

Have you made any lasting love connections with past Z Dating Games?

Yes! Maybe! Who cares?

Anything else we should know?

Z Dating Game happens on Saturday, May 3rd at 8pm at Z Space (450 Florida Street at 17th). Tickets are $10.00 online and $15.00 at the door.
