Checking my emails, and going through my Spam ones as well I noticed an email that said in the subject area that someone from the college I went to invited me to join datemyschool.com. At first I thought it was one of those weird annoying spam messages I get from time to time from single and lonely and view singles in your area and blah blah blah. What stood out to me was that it knew what school I went to. I googled the site and it turns out it is a legit site. You can set up dates from people at your school and you have the option of being invisible or not in your department. So basically if I made an account, I would be invisible to all the people in my department major and I would be able to meet people from other departments. It seems like something I would do if I was still in school, even though you can register as an alumni through your school and also Ben and I are almost a couple. It seems better then the dating site I joined for a project and a lot easier and convenient to meet people since people often meet each other for a "date" somewhere on campus. It's also just for college students, which is a plus, and you don't really have to worry about being rejected and recognized (which is something I experienced a couple times). However, the anthropologist in me wants to check it out because it is part of the reason why I am writing and I would be exploring the world around me through an anthropological aspect through the web. It makes me wonder if I do have at secret admirer out there, if Ben is testing me or not, or if the school was invited to join the site and sent everyone (students and alumnis) an e-mail.
