TRAVEL
November 30, 2008 | Jen Leo
Every other new travel website claims to make your trip-planning experience easier and more efficient. TripBase.com, even though it's still in beta, actually makes it more fun. What's hot: TripBase is the Match.com of travel planning. You input what you find desirable in a destination (night life, dining, nature, attractions and shopping) and it returns destinations that you're likely to be infatuated with. Like online dating results, these outcomes may disgust you.

Cherry Norris never got a chance to date online but insists she would have. The native Tennessean suffered through eight nearly date-free years in Los Angeles prior to the advent of the Web. The Internet, she figures, might have spared her from The Question. "People would say, 'You're smart. You're pretty. . .' "--at this point, Norris knew what was coming next--" 'Why aren't you dating?' I couldn't answer," says the dark-blond filmmaker, now 40 and in a committed relationship.

'Life is short. Have an affair." That's the slogan of the Ashley Madison dating service, a website for people who want to cheat on their partners. That's right, unlike traditional Internet dating sites -- where you're expected to say you're unattached no matter what the truth is -- Ashley Madison is honest about its duplicity. Unlike match.

Kimberly Bornstein stands blindfolded at the front of a small stage at Hollywood's Magic Castle. Behind her a man from the audience stares intently at a dollar bill in his hands while Bornstein's husband, Jeff, looks on. Slowly, Kimberly recites a list of numbers that comprise the serial number of the dollar bill. The man gasps and says something unprintable under his breath. This is the pinnacle of the Bornsteins' show "Mind Meld," which the celebrated mind-reading duo are performing for the next few weeks at Hollywood's Acme Comedy Theater.

Housing prices are plummeting. Jobs are evaporating. And the economy, as a whole, is in free fall. But despite -- or perhaps because of -- such relentlessly bad news, there's an up side -- for daters, at least. Singles are wading into the online dating pool in record numbers, giving virtual matchmakers their best traffic figures in years -- and users even better odds for finding a snuggle buddy, a fling or the One.

Have something to say to the driver in the next lane? "No more shouting through your car window!" says Dana Point-based PlateMatch.com. The Web site enables snoopy vehicle owners to register their license plates in a database for $59.95 per year and exchange e-mail with other members. It's sort of an update of a 1980s group, Huntington Beach-based Freeway Singles, whose members displayed numbered stickers on their cars. In the current version, members receive PlateMatch.com license plate frames.

The last date I went on was in October. The one before that was in May. And the one before that, well, I don't remember. It's been exactly one year since I've been involved in any sort of substantial relationship, and considering the substance of the last one, that's not saying much. I've tried the bar, the gym, the public library and grocery store.
