Oh, yeah! How could we forget to mention this? Sex and the 405 is in this Sunday’s Los Angeles Times! Image journo Whitney Friedlander got in touch with our editrix, who’s notorious for using Twitter to screen all potential lovers (her mating ritual involves grammar, punctuation and word sparring. We’ve seen her sext. She uses words like exegesis — WTF, right? Approach at your own risk).
Anyway, they dished the goss for a few hours, which resulted in a little mention for us, her loyal newsroom monkeys (who were slaving away in the word mines while she was lounging around for an awesome photo op with one of the Times most hardcore photojournos, Francine Orr, btw. Not that we’re bitter).
From Friendlander, the Times‘ excellent piece on love online:
Online dating sites aren’t the only way to find that special someone. There will always be the lucky folk who find kinship in the unofficial dating pools of social networking sites. Witness local blogger A.V. Flox, who edits Sexandthe405.com and has vowed to date only guys she’s met on Twitter.
“[On Twitter], you’re having a conversation with people without any external factors like physical looks,” she says. “It’s just really raw. It’s just who the person is. You edit what you say on your blog [or e-mail], but on Twitter you will tweet ‘Ow, I stubbed my toe.’ It’s really great stuff and indicative of personality.”
Like, totally, A.V. ROTFL. You know we had to go there, right? We still love you. Now please can we get a Clover in the newsroom? kthnx.
