"I mean, I can specify exactly what I want. It's dial-a-date!"

Study: Man's Face Determines Dating Potential

From -- "Women looking for a long-term relationship like men who like children -- and they can tell which guys might be interested in becoming fathers just by looking at their faces.

Those are among the findings of a study of college students published Wednesday in a British scientific journal.

"This study suggests that women are picking up on facial cues that are perhaps related to paternal qualities," said James Roney, a University of California at Santa Barbara psychologist and lead author of the study. "The more they perceived the men as liking kids, the more likely they could see having a longer-term relationship."

Experts said evolution has apparently programmed women to recognize men who might be interested in propagating the species by raising a family."

Singer's Online Dating Enlivens Her Normal Life

From -- "Mecca Normal’s frontwoman, Jean Smith, has been called an alt-rock trailblazer, a feminist role model, even a bit of a sex symbol. In other words, she’s about the last person you’d expect to run into on an Internet dating site.

But punk icons apparently get lonely, too. Smith’s online search for a romantic partner is the subject of Mecca Normal’s striking new disc, ‘‘The Observer.” With musical partner David Lester providing guitar soundscapes and hints of pop melody (the duo has no rhythm section), Smith’s half-sung, half-spoken stories are full of barbed humor and revealing details. One song describes an uncomfortable night with a guy who seemed a little too keen on her; another tells of a first date with a middle-aged ski bum weirded out by her punk-rock connections.

Reached during a tour stop last week, Vancouver native Smith said writing about her experiences - for a forthcoming book as well as the album - made the bad dates more bearable."
