I've actually thought of a similar idea, although it is closer in similarity to MySpace. It involves a large database that allows people to search for singles in a specific geographic location. Such locations could include not just cities/provinces/countries, but educational institutions, workplaces, and small districts of an urban area (such as the Outremont neighbourhood of Montreal).

It wouldn't be like Lavalife, because it wouldn't include profiles, photos, or personal contact information. It would only include first and last name. It would allow me, for example, to search the faculty of the university I go to for just the names of single people. If my search turns up the name of someone I know and like, then I can go ahead and go for them.

Such a system would be set up to only permit me to search for people in the city I live in, the school I go to, or the place I work. I couldn't use it to harvest names of singles from across Europe, for example.

Well well... looks like technology is finally catching up - for real!

Just spotted this video on CNN and I knew I had to put it here:

Welcome to the future: Dating

(Not exactly what I had in mind, but still, it's a huge step forward: A phone-like device that analyzes verbal speech intonations and deducts that person's intentions according to their mode of speech. Extremely cool).
