Funny or Die is my new BFF. This one features Lindsey Lohan in an eHarmony video. Lolz. Also, why do I still think she’s hot? Does that make me a bad person?

I love it. Beautifulpeople.com, the site that only lets in hotties, has supposedly given 5000 members the boot for putting on too much weight over the holidays. It did this by reviewing new pictures that members had uploaded. Sounds like a big PR stunt to me…who uploads pictures of themselves looking that much fatter to an online dating site?
Money quote from site founder Robert Hintze:
“Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded.”

Gary Stock is author of unblinking.com and CIO of technology innovation firm Nexcerpt, Inc. He’s also an online dating veteran and an experimenter and critic of the technology and systems behind the online dating sites. I first discovered him after he left a comment on my post about spotting fake Match.com profiles and then reading his Bad Match series of posts about the scams that are rampant on online dating sites. If any readers are doing online dating or are interested in the subject, I highly recommend reading his posts and then checking out this interview. Take the 10′ and read through this entire thing, because it’s packed with good insight and gives good examples of what the online dating experience is like. This interview is broken into two parts.

Hahahaha! More accolades for Match.com, which is finally getting sued for having fake profiles and sending BS winks and emails to male customers. See this article in the New York Post where Brooklynite Sean McGinn is suing for $5 million, citing the pain and anguish he felt when his emails were unreplied to because they were going to fake accounts. Boo hoo. I love it. Nothing like getting super depressed because you emailed 100 chicks on Match and no one emailed back. UPDATE: McGinn dropped the lawsuit because he was ridiculed massively on the Internet. Really? Too bad, would love to have seen Match get it in the 5-hole on this one. Ironically, he met his current girlfriend on Match. Not even sure what to say about that.

This is part 2 in a series of interviews with dating coaches and social artists. This is based on my original post, 7 Thought Leaders in the Dating and Pickup Industry.
This interview is with 30, a professional life and dating coach, and author of The Reality Method blog.
