This is going to be one of those social experiments of mine that always fails but I do it anyway because I’m mostly bored and a glutton for punishment.
Anyhow, there’s an app called Highlight that basically uses your iPhone/Android to *ahem* highlight the people around you that are also using the same app, and who share similar interests. It utilizes my Facebook profile as part of its algorithm, so idealistic me thinks, ya know, this might be a great way to utilize technology to randomly meet women of similar interests instead of constantly trolling dating sites like a brain dead monkey.
Sadly though, because I live in New York, the only folks that pop up on my Highlight app are in-bred yokels, guys with foreign sounding names like Shalah Maboogagaseas, and 40-something year old ex-porn actresses. Yep, that definitely sounds like New York.
Still, I’m going to give it one more try while I drive around in Colorado next week, which is my funsie all-time favorite state to visit. Since I’ll be covering hundreds of miles and prancing about Denver and Colorado Springs, the app is BOUND to highlight at least one interesting gal who might fancy me, am I right or am I right?
Yeah, we all know how that’s gonna turn out.
Still, I’m rather confident it will make fodder for some funny blogging before I finally rip the app off my iPhone forever and call the people who developed it a name.
