Dating, the Direct Approach


You’ve tried it all: eharmony,,, blind dates, and you still can’t land a man? Perhaps with a little help from your friends, you’ll finally be able to hookup with a simple plea: PLEASE DATE MY FRIEND!

The loyal friends of “Anne-Marie” are so concerned about getting their friend some action, “after a few drinks,” they started a website, “Date Our Friend Anne-Marie.”

The site includes links to “Anne-Marie 101,” and Anne-Marie’s “Best Qualities,” with the come-on “You Want In?” One cautionary note: “She is not the crazy one, we are. AnneMarie is a work in progress.” How reassuring.

And if Pete Townshend’s “Let My Love Open the Door,” which is played throughout the site’s navigation, doesn’t make you e-mail this girl, she’s out of luck.
