The title of the site reads "unofficial"...

Check the site again. I'm getting something that I've found on a lot of websites lately, especially news outlets. Instead of a functional webpage, there is a stream of characters, the first line of many looks like this:

Man, this new service works fast. I've uploaded my profile this morning and already have had 3 messages from gorgeous women.

You gave it your best shot, but things don't always turn out how you expected. This is because you either:

   1. Fell for our April Fool’s joke, in which case ha ha, wasn't that amusing and harmless and mostly in good taste and not all psychologically damaging under various and sundry aspects of contemporary tort law, please don't sue us; or

   2. Are genuinely enjoying, or least momentarily tolerating, our April Fool’s joke and wanted to surf your way into its every last nook and cranny, in which case

   1. ...ha ha, wasn't that amusing and harmless and mostly in good taste and not all psychologically damaging under various and sundry aspects of contemporary tort law, please don't sue us; and/or

   2. you might want to take a trip down our April Fool’s memory lane, here or here or here. Enjoy.

Truth is that Google Romance already exists!

"Google Romance is a place where you can post all types of romantic information and, using our Soulmate Search, get back search results that could, in theory, include the love of your life."

oh OK ..

Hmmmm let's see:

Nevermind, sorry for my earlier post. It seems that my computer is having a problem with a select few sites for some reason.

Hmm ... "When you think about it, love is just another search problem." ...

Indeed. But collecting the data is difficult and time-consuming, and the algorithms could use a lot of improvement.
