Love For Wits - A Social/Dating Site for Intelligent People, Including Writers!

Just a note to our followers and fans about a new dating site for writers, professionals, artists, teachers, media types, filmmakers, IT execs, actors, etc. etc. that we stumbled upon at Stumble Upon. What the hell you say? Are we kidding? No. For those of you on the love market (even writers need love, yes?), this Love For Wits place is actually rather cool. Their opening line is, "Yes, there is intelligent life on Earth, and it's searching for other intelligent life" ... followed shortly by, "No more inane blather, boring dates, blank stares, or windmill giants." No more "windmill giants" must be a reference to Don Quixote?

The fact that anyone would conceive of designing a dating site for writers, artists, and other "wits" is something new in the net cosmos. Not only is it not just another stupid dating site, it flashes with the most useful of Facebook features, a clean look, a sense of humor, plus films, unique cultural blog feeds (including Ron Hogan's Beatrice feed for book reviews), and an origin story (that includes "Festivus") to die for. 

Even if you don't join, or you aren't in the market, the Love For Wits video/film digest alone is worth a look ("Vids" link, top left of page once you click on the Origin Story).

  1. Checked it out Love For Wits, and it's certainly way different than POF or Perfect M or any of the other sites. Thumbs up!

  2. What confirmed this site for me were some simple but direct profile questions that narrowed down certain personality features and "likes" that struck a big chord with me. My ideal person (or as close as anyone can come, I think) was a charitable human being, a devoted teacher and poet and independent woman who loved song, played piano like a dream, and considered cooking an art form she desired to master.

    As long as I clean the kitchen at the end of the day I'm in paradise. Also, she lives in Santa Barbara and I was more than happy to relocate from Wisconsin.

    Love for Wits is a miracle worker.
