Dating the Irish and People Who Like Them

This just in:

Got a tip on an "eclectic online community for people who already have a life" called, which two Irish expats who live in San Francisco founded 10 years ago.

According to the website, " is an Irish news and social networking website with over 240,000 members worldwide. The site is for Irish expats, descendants and any person wishing to travel to Ireland. Here, you will find news and information, community and friendship."

It also features free IrishAbroad Personals.

While I haven't used any of IrishAbroad's services myself, you may want to check them out.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Bret Really Liked Kristy Joe...

We suspend dating advice today to summarize a most helpful TV program, Rock of Love 2 with Bret Michaels, which does the public service of exhibiting the type of substandard man women do well to avoid.

In last night's episode, Poison warbler Bret Michaels admitted that he really liked "annoying" contestant Kristy Joe and was "emotionally destroyed" when she chose to leave the Rock of Love 2 harem. (In the previous installment, he was "physically and emotionally exhausted" about something else. He's a sensitive guy.)

Emotions aside, Bret managed to make out with both Ambre ("the best kisser in the house") and Megan ("I'm not feeling a connection, but I do feel like sucking face") in the same episode.

As usual, he took the winners of the week's challenge on "insanely awesome" (instead of merely awesome) dates that required the victims to watch him devour meals like a rabid orangutan. Nobody will ever mistake Bret Michaels for George Clooney.

"I need a woman who can dive into my music and into my life," rhapsodized our vinyl-haired Romeo at the start of last night's show.

The Women of Cripplingly Low-Self Esteem dived. And they'll keep right on diving.
