True Romance

May 13th, 2005 · 9 Comments

Anyone else find it incongruous that the online ads for the dating service True.com invariably feature:

  • Text referencing how they’ll help you find true love, and
  • Visuals of D-cup cleavage?

Are they guaranteeing that they’ll find your soul-mate and that she’ll be stacked?

    I’m sure they know that their potential audience merely thinks that their soul-mate will be stacked. 🙂

    And gawd, that reminds me of that “Two Ds and and F” line from Family Guy!

    What’s so incongruous about that? BY DEFINITION my soulmate has to have big titties otherwise, she fails to meet the required criteria.

    Judging from the picture on True.com, it looks like this guy went in for the kiss with a big-tittied braud and she dissed him. Nice try True, I will stick to ten dollar hookers, with hairy breasts and meat curtains that look like those dangling cloth strips that take the suds off your vehicle at a car wash.

    What is a meat curtain? If ever there were two words that should never be uttered together…

    Like Luke, I just don’t see the problem.

    Wouldn’t she have to be to really be your soulmate?

    Has Luke expressed himself exactly? Perhaps he means to say that the quality of having huge breasts is supervenient on, but not constitutive of, soul mateness. (Am trying out new words from Phil 174…)

    True.com is the one that does background checks.

    I wonder if they also verify the photos for accuracy?

    Actually, a dating service in which everyone had a verified recent photo would probably be more valuable than one which just checks backgrounds.

    “True.com–they’re real and they’re spectacular!”
