Hey Mac, I 'Heart' You

Wedding Assortment

News "flash," and I use the term "flash" very, very loosely: When I first heard about Cupidtino, the first thing I did was look at a calendar.

Was it April Fools again?

But no, all signs (astrologic and otherwise) point to Cupidtino, a new dating website that seeks to match Mac lovers with one another, is real.

Cupidtino, a mix between Cupid and Cupertino, the city that plays home to Apple's global headquarters, apparently will go live some time next month.

Which got me thinking: What will those first dates between Macophiles be like?


"Hello, I'm a Mac…"
"Me too!"
"Marry me?"

Or, singles-swinger:

"Hey baby, after grabbing a drink at the Genius bar, wanna come over and hang out at my iPad? Nothing floppy about my hard drive. I mean, I know the new operating system OSX is pronounced 'OS-10,' but I think I know what it really stands for: O-S-EX… O-SEX! Come on! You're the Apple of my eye! Let's meet! Look for me! I'll be the one wearing a mock black turtle-neck. Well, the short guy wearing one. I imagine there will be lots of us wearing those. Hey, if 'there's an app for that,' there's gotta be a match for me. Cupidtino?! I am SO there!"

The site, which you can see hereclaims to be a "beautiful new dating site created for fans of Apple products by fans of Apple products.


Diehard Mac and 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." It goes on.

Cupidtino will be available exclusively on Apple platforms, including Safari, iPhone, and iPad apps. This could be the Apple community version of "jumping the shark."

I was looking for the dating site geared toward the Microsoft community but was already taken by some band.

Oooooooh, cheap shot!!
