If You Were Paying Attention, You'd Probably Have a Date

More and more people are turning to the internet in an effort to find that person they had a small connection with. But what are the chances of reconnecting?

We've all had the same experience. Small talk while waiting in line, glances from across the restaurant, shared moments while traveling. These are the "missed connections" that have the internet buzzing. The romantic idea that you can answer the "If only I'd said something" with a couple of keystrokes and some luck is taking the sting out of pick-up lines and, if the stories are to be believed, just may revolutionize the way we meet people.

"Our biggest complaint from online daters", says Brad Hinely, VP of StrongeyeContact.com, "was that they want to meet the people that they see in their real-world, because that's where people want to spend their time. No one wants to date someone who lives online."

Several sites offer postings for these "missed connections"; usually describing the circumstances and some detail about what the other person was wearing. "The main problem with concepts like these is that it takes both people recognizing the attraction, and then it takes both people to post the meeting with some sort of specificity, and they both must post in the same place, and the post must be free of charge. So, basically, about a 1 in 5000 chance. We've brought those odds down considerably." Brad continues. His company has developed what just may be the most innovative system to match these connections. With only a few details, StrongeyeContact.com can match up your missed connection to the nearest street corner, club, or party. Pretty impressive and they've stuck with the most important aspect, which is keeping it free.

With the internet offering so many opportunities to meet people online, it was only a matter of time before we could use it to reconnect with our real world.
