Culture Vultures Internet Dating

Here is what I want to exist: an internet dating site for people who read books. As in: a lot of books. Or for people who make art, or write, or make music, or appreciate art and writing and music in a way that has becoming a defining factor in their lives.

It would have a multilingual interface, where you have to enter the languages you speak and the books/art/music you love. Maybe write something about yourself that would illustrate your individuality, wit and intelligence. It would have people in places all over the world, from places all over the world, but a decent number of them would be in Berlin so I would get to go on dates. As in: dates with men who don't think it's crazy to read a lot of books and are not intimidated by women who do so. Who can talk about books but also about other things like favourite ice cream flavours or whatever. In a halfway intelligent manner, you know.

I don't have the time or the technical wherewithal to invent this site, so I've simply come up with a name (see above) in the hope that someone will be inspired. I've never done internet dating but I hear it's quite good if you know what you want. Obviously, I don't.

Who was that person again who goes out drinking with German writers?

That doesn't count. They all have girlfriends. And I'm trying to do the whole world a favour here, not just find an individual solution.

I also heard that internet dating is fun - in fact, several of my girlfriends and also some women I am only acquainted with found their future husbands there - So I Think your idea is brilliant. I hope somebody picks it up!

OH my god. I'm all over it. I mean, I'm married. But this is the best idea ever.

I'm a programmer. And I read a lot of books in English and German (just finished H. Mantel's Wolf Hall). This actually sounds like a great idea! I might start a site like this ...

Please do, Mr/Ms Coward. Then post a link in the comments section and I shall sign up, should I not be married by then.

Very important: you can find the other person via the books you and he / she has read. I always wanted to meet a woman who read Zettel's Traum.

A coward.

I agree. I haven't read Zettel's Traum.
