Likealittle the New Anoncon?

Just kidding Anoncon, we could never replace you. However this twitter account “flirting-facilitator platform” likealittle [1] comes quite close on the creepiness scale. The great thing about no internet was that people would keep their pervy thoughts to themselves, we hope. Now people get to publish their thoughts to the world, which scarfs it down faster than you can say “that’s creepy bro.”

Here’s how the site works. You basically type in where you are located, the sex and hair color and then you “flirt” aka “I just want to nomnom on you all day long” for example. Yes that was actually posted.

But really, we’re wondering if this actually works. Scenario: you are sitting in Cafe Milano, and need a brief study break, so obviously you go on the Clog site to have a read and stumble upon this article which links you to likealittle. Once there you notice a message ” At Cafe Milano: Male, Brunette. Your chargers hat makes me want to show you my sideboob,” (We are not making this up!). Then suddenly, you realize your are the only male brunette in Cafe Milano — unlikely but just humor us for a second — and there is a girl with her laptop open and she is staring at you! What then? Do you just walk up and demand to see some sideboobage?

Didn’t think of the consequences of making anonymous internet claims didjanow, tweetlets? We wonder if any real face-to-face conversations, cuddle-sessions or a little sumthin’ sumthin’ else (what … ?) ever really happens. After some browsing we found that some people actually do find each other but instead of meeting in person, they keep anonymously messaging to each other.

OK, if texting and internet chatting were considered removed and impersonal ways to get to know a potential someone then we don’t even know what this is. What we do know, is that if you are interested in someone, grow some cahones and go, y’know, talk to them.
