LANSING STATE JOURNAL -- Aug 21 -- Experts say it time and again: Love is all about communication, and these days communication is all about technology. Folks seeking lasting relationships are tapping on laptops, flipping open cell phones to talk or text and revising the dating game to suit their time-starved lives. "If you don't meet somebody at work or on the way to work at the gas station, you're pretty much out of luck when it comes to romance," said Lisa Daily, author of "Stop Getting Dumped" and "director of love" for Internet dating service Cupid.com and Pre-Dating. She endorses Pre-Dating; "you can meet a lot of people in one night."
Mark Brooks: Online daters can find instant gratification with speed dating events. Click, sign-up, show up, start talking to real people. Hey, what a concept. I hope we'll see more online dating companies adding (fun) events to their offerings in the future. They're the perfect complement...but a pain to systematize and manage.
