OFF THE TICKER

Valentine's Day a Virtual Reality

February 10, 1996|Associated Press

A box of chocolates, a glass of wine and the warm glow of the computer monitor.

If love doesn't seem likely to strike between now and Valentine's Day, there are a few places to drop in online that might take some of the sting out.

At America Online, Miss Piggy will offer advice to the lovelorn. Over at CompuServe, you can type "Go CUPID" to find online meetings set up especially for the day. Microsoft Network is offering the Lover's Lounge Open Chat, which invites users to share their best and worst pickup lines.

If the idea of talking to a stranger doesn't appeal to you, at least you can express your feelings to your one true love--your pet. Just send e-mail to Cupid and CompuServe will send a real Valentine to Spike.
