Dating Site Gives Birth to Virtual Babies

I came across a press release for a Danish dating site today (yes, I just HAPPENED to come across it, honey… *AHEM*) announcing a new feature that allows members to have virtual babies together.  Hard for me to imagine how online daters would make the leap from “winking” at cute members to starting a cyber-family together.  Perhaps love seekers are revising their profile headlines accordingly:


Nope, not weird at all.

According to the release, “all you need to do is load their photos as well as yours, and you get the chance to create a virtual baby in 9 seconds, not 9 months.”  Which could also be the title of a movie sequel:  “How to Lose a Guy in Nine Seconds.”

They claim 35,000 members have already “morphed and given birth to beautiful YOUAND.ME virtual members.”  One member, who wishes to remain anonymous — can’t imagine why? — apparently “beams with joy” when speaking about her virtual child:

“Actually, my sweetie is about what I’d imagine my ideal baby would look like,” she states. “I’m a little nervous as a novice virtual mommy, and I’ve yet to break the news to the virtual daddy.”

And in related news, virtual restraining orders have recently increased exponentially!

I mean, that’s a little bizarre, right?  Who in their right mind would — oh, wait.  I forgot to share a very special announcement with you!

Yes, I’ve been withholding a few minor details of my pregnancy with you.  Just minor.  Clooney and I had a virtual one-night stand and, well, here is our little bundle of joy, Kirby!  I’m still recovering from my virtual C-section, but Clooney has helped ease my pain with a virtual diamond ring!

Sorry, Mr. Candy.  But the virtual rock is HUGE.

I know what you’re thinking, and… yes, we are registered.  You can find our virtual baby registry at Petit Tresor, the very same place where Tom and Katie registered for THEIR virtual bab — er… I mean, for Suri.
