Description

For this project, I wanted to produce an entertaining online tool that would help facilitate  one-on-one interpersonal contact, an initial connection that would hopefully lead to a  positive and meaningful interaction between two individuals. I chose the context of a  personals advertisement combined with user-defined virtual identities as the basis for my  project, as I feel these systems help facilitate the awkward process of approaching and  making contact with another individual.
