New Apple dating site culls PC users from the dating pool
If you’ve ventured into the whole online dating thing, it’s undoubtedly happened to you.
You meet the perfect guy or girl. Politically, socially, culturally- you’re a fantastic match. They’re cute, smart, funny and they shower. And then you find out back at their crib, they’re totally rocking a Dell. Inevitable disappointment and shame ensue. Who needs that?
Thankfully, someone has created a dating site to prevent you ever having to date a PC user ever again. Cupidtino (a portmanteau of “cupid” and “Cupertino”), currently in closed beta, introduces the first Apple-inspired dating site:
Cupidtino is a beautiful new dating site created for fans of Apple products by fans of Apple products! Why? Diehard Mac & Apple fans often have a lot in common – personalities, creative professions, a similar sense of style and aesthetics, taste, and of course a love for technology. We believe these are enough reasons for two people to meet and fall in love, and so we created the first Mac-inspired dating site to help you find other Machearts around you.
Of course, it wouldn’t be appealing to Mac fans without some thinly veiled snobbery, so:
Cupidtino will launch in June 2010 exclusively on Apple platforms – Safari, iPhone and iPad apps. It’s time to share the love
While it’s not inherently a bad idea (albeit, let’s face it, a douchey one), I take massive issue with anyone who is pushing that site claiming to have a love of esthetics.
