Be Mine?

Today is Valentine's Day, and normally I'm against holidays that are designed just to sell greeting cards and chocolate (okay, maybe there's never a bad time for chocolate). But I was getting coffee a little while ago, and I noticed they had these special red sleeves made for V-day:




You can put it on your cup and let people know if you're looking for dates by ticking one of the boxes. I'm unsure what to think of this. It seems kind of tacky. But then, I guess it's a more subtle way of announcing your availability than other things you could do. What do you think? Would any of you actually use one of these?

I read a series of books where part of the culture of one planet was a detailed and highly elaborate code of earrings to indicate current status, what you were looking for gender-wise, what you were looking for relationship-wise, and other stuff like that. I guess it'd take the risk out of approaching someone, but it was a complex cultural thing going back hundreds of years. The coffee sleeve thing just seems kind of sad and desperate, and potentially exploitable by stalkers and predators.
Huh, that's interesting!

Yeah, I pretty much thought that too. Although it didn't occur to me that it could attract stalkers. Yikes.
