So I assume most people who are reading this post have heard of online dating. Some of the more popular or well-known websites offering this “service” are eHarmony.com and Match.com. Well ladies and gentlemen, there is a new one out there that I find suits my taste much better, typeconnection.com.
You start by choosing a character type that suits you. You then proceed to choose a strategy for finding your match, such as searching for opposite characteristics, or for similar interests. Then laid out in front of you are a few options to choose from with bios attached (read carefully before you make your choice). Once you choose your supposed match you are brought to a page listing more detailed information comparing your two types.
Now, I know what you are thinking: how is this different from any other online dating website? Well it makes things so much easier and it does not waste any of your time. Once you think you have chosen the correct match all you have to do is click one button and you are done, the website will evaluate the types and tell you whether or not the match will work. It takes away all of the work, no hassle or fuss. You can just get it done.
Now here is the real kicker, this dating site is not for people… Yes, you read that right, this site is not for people. Knowing what website you are on, you may have made the connection already, but if you haven’t, it is an online Typographic Dating Game.
The website features well-known typefaces and portrays each as a character searching for love. You decide what kind of match to look for by choosing among several strategies for combining typefaces. Along the way, you explore typographic terminology, type history and more. I suggest you check it out, you may just have some fun.
