Love in the Dumps

There's a bulimic at my gym that does a vomit-steamroom-shower routine before dressing and going to work. I know a guy who has such a complex about being chubby when he was a kid, that his self-loathing allows him to only date rail-thin girls and will dump them if they gain so much as five pounds.

What do these two people have in common? Aside from being a perfect match, these individuals hide their neuroses. At the latest Ashton Kutcher-owned Dolce Group bar or club, they appear polished and lively, laughing with their head thrown back; they even have a custom strut. It isn't until months into the relationship that their mates realize what issues they have. False advertising has caused these people to waste precious time in finding someone who isn't crazy in Los Angeles.

Enter Love in the Dumps. This dating website is dedicated to honest and truly screwed up people. They don't choose their best pictures from when they were 20 pounds lighter and ten years younger. And right up front, they will tell you what meds they're on, how many cats they own and anything else you need to know before taking the plunge.

And perhaps these people aren't as neurotic and troubled as they seem. For starters, they're honest and too moral to waste someone's time by pretending to be someone they aren't. Plus, admitting faults is the first step toward recovery, isn't it? Not that I would know, because I'm perfect.
