“We live in the best of all possible worlds”*…

 

Valentines Day is fast approaching… and you don’t want to be caught without a date. With Internet romance sites catering to virtually every interest — Christian Mingle for New Testament followers (“Find God’s match for you”), Red State Date for Republicans (“Find your Running Mate”), Geek 2 Geek for, yes, adorable nerds (“Find your Geek Match”) — you’d think there would be something for philosophy fans. Well, there is, but the pickings are extremely limited. If you’re a devotee of the greed-preaching Tea Party inspiration known as Ayn Rand, and you think total self-reliance is compatible with romance, you are in luck.

But what if your taste in philosophers, and lovers, runs less libertarian?

Happily, Steven Mazie has stepped in to fill the void with options like:

SaintAugustineTryst.com

“Chastity can wait”

and

JohnRawlsMatch.com

“Maximizing the romantic potential of the least desirable Americans since 1971”

More amatory options at “Dating Websites for Love-Seeking Philosophy Buffs.”

As we wonder “if a dating profile is posted, but no one is there to read it, does it make an impression?”, we might note that today is the birthday of Richard Bruce “Dick” Cheney; he was born on this date in 1941.  A politician, businessman, and renowned marksman, Cheney served as the 46th Vice President of the United States.

Principle is OK up to a certain point, but principle doesn’t do any good if you lose.
