Best Place To Meet That Internet Date (2008)


With online dating, the key is preserving distance.

"So by the time we get to the end of the bridge, I've decided how long I want the date to last, and how much I'm gonna spend." Will it be a chocolate marquise at the River Cafe or a hot dog at South Street Seaport?
