Shy Londoners Flirt Via Cell Phone at Bars with New Service
The service, called Ice Brkr, lets you create an online persona with a picture. You then indicate which bar(s) you're in and when. Others who are in the same locations as you at the right time can look you up (by your picture) and send you creepy text messages like "I just love to watch you laugh."
Like most dating schemes, creating a profile and putting your information online is free. It's only when you want to contact someone that you get billed. The first four messages are free, after that you can buy ten-packs of messages for £10 (about $20), or 25 messages for £20 (about $40). Not too bad if the thought of talking to a real girl gives you the willies.
