Motodate—The Commuter’s MySpace

Follow Marty

You use your computer more often for “dating” than you do for work. No crime there, at least none charged yet. But now you can use your car for dating, if you choose. A new Web site,, offers drivers a new way to amortize registrations and prey on opposite genders at the same time. Here’s how it works: Motodate signs you up for less than $5 a month (we’re guessing $4.99, but we’re jaded) and you’ll get a decal with a personal code. Apply to your vehicle’s side windows and let the hottie dance begin! Spot someone you fancy and log on to the Web site, then type in their code and you’ll be linked to a profile that includes email links to contact your future short term special friend (STSF). It could be love—and it could be a borderline form of stalking. But hey, it’s cheaper than a bottle of Moet and three hours out of your life.
