...but you're not in like with me.

So with the intent of getting better at meeting people in a more romanti-social atmosphere, I nabbed an invite to the closed beta of from ezaryu.  The site concept is pretty cool.  You get "points" for doing things like logging in, posting pictures, answering profile questions and such.  Then, you create a "Game."  A game is a question that can be answered with a short (30 characters or less) answer.  People who find you, or your game interesting can post a reply to your question by bidding on the game.  First person has to bid 10 points, second person has to up it from there.  When the game time expires, the creator can choose one of the top five bidders to add to their contacts list, and then they're free to communicate with them.

So it's not really a game site, but not really a dating site either.  More of a popularity/flirting site.

But like any social networking structure, you can "block" users that you don't want showing up in your searches.

Apparently I'm *SO* unappealing that I've been blocked "quite a few" times.  Enough so that the system deactivated my ability to actually bid on anyone else's game.  Or so Tech Support says.  They're trying to fix it for me, but really... what's the point?


P.S.  I have six invitation codes to the private beta if people want them.
