Need Love? There’s an App for That
They say that love often blossoms where there are common interests. What if the interest is a brand?
Everyone knows someone who is an Apple enthusiast. Whether they’re a fan, or a fanatic a group in California wants to help them find others like them. Will your dating life also be “designed by Apple in California”?
The new site set to launch in June 2010 is called Cupidtino – a cute take on Cupertino, the California town that has been home to Apple HQ since 1975 and cupid. (Whether you needed to read that explanation or not is probably a good indicator of whether or not this site is for you.) Plans are underway to release it on all Apple platforms, which I have to assume means there will be an app.
An early report on CNN.com prompted several questions of “is this a joke?” but there might be something to say for this off beat concept. While the old adage claims that opposites attract, if you and your partner have nothing in common, there’s going to be a lot of “putting up with” as you trade off attending events you both enjoy. Can love grow out of a mutual love of technology? It’s certainly been based on less before.
Acting as its own personal ad the site describes itself saying, “Diehard Mac & Apple fans often have a lot in common – personalities, creative professions, a similar sense of style and aesthetics, taste, and of course a love for technology. We believe these are enough reasons for two people to meet and fall in love, and so we created the first Mac-inspired dating site to help you find other Machearts around you.”
Would you ever try a site like this?
