The Internet Dating Experience

Another post in the spirit of Valentine's Day, er, uh, sort of.  The painting pictured above is called "The Internet Dating Experience."  The monster-like figure in the white area represents a guy that has entered dating cyberspace.  He is in a purgatorial state: neither a success nor a failure.  His legs are wobbly and his arms are absent which makes it difficult for him to move forward and to grasp what he seeks.  If you have ever tried internet dating, I am sure this will make some sense to you.  Let's hope that this guy finds his way (and his arms) soon.
