Half Baked Dating Service

Tired of Real World'ers that refuse to let HB'ers into their pimply love-lives?
  [vote for,

Then submit yourselves to the new HB Dating service!

Once you've filled out the appropriate approval form (signed by your legal guardian or parole officer), our program will run over each and every keystroke you've ever submitted to HB and, using advanced statistical measurement techniques, find your perfectly matched HB user (normally of the opposite sex, but negotiable).

Basis of the idea is, someone most like you will use the same words. Other more advanced criteria can also be used. (eg categories most annotated, phrases most used, matching texts in user account/description page etc.. other suggestions welcome.)

You may alternately select from the exact opposite of your 'perfect' match for a little fun/spice/danger.

(nb. This idea is no way indicates that the creator has any problems dealing with real life individuals of the opposite sex. In fact, he is married to several non HB'ers in several countries and is currently maintaining a healthy flock of children).

The same idea. Or is it? [phoenix, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       Do tell, [Bliss].

       I'm still-fish lookout for Mr. rigidify.

       If you are looking for love on the Halfbakery, you are looking in all the wrong palces. This would probably only end up matching all the doppelganger accounts.

       Wierd person.   

       Strangely fascinating idea though. Is there anyone here who *fancies* any of the other HBers on the basis of their posts and annos? Own up!

       tee hee hee. giggle snort. *whisper whisper*

       My mate fancies you
squeak, Oct 10 2003

       [Dr Curry]: I would disagree with that. Although this isn't a dating chat room, I would venture to say that many Bakers here have some things in common:   

       1) A modest (at least) intellect.   

       2) A strange sense of humour.   

       3) Good communication skills (written, anyway)   

       4) A vivid imagination   

       5) A need to be understood

       Remember when you caught a virus
And I got on my knees
And begged you not to crash
Because I'd go berserk?
Well. . .

       No HB for me anymore
And then the days got worse and worse
And now you see I've gone
Completely out of my mind
And. . .

       They're coming to take me away, HA HA
They're coming to take me away, HO HO HEE HEE HA HA
To the funny farm. . .

       "You have been invited to an HB Self Help Group. We've evaluated the words and phrases which you use most frequently, and identified the verifiable metal illness which you are most likely to be suffering from."

       Well... I recently broke up with my boyfriend. Let the HB dating service find me a match! (It will be quite a challenge for anyone to find someone like me if they're based on my profile!)
Pericles, Oct 11 2003

       I thought this would be like carbon-14 dating. Which would be so much more Tom Sawyer than those plebian little dates under the annotations. Please!
