The Sun's Olympic correspondents, Rick Maese and Kevin Van Valkenburg, are blogging back and forth to each other at baltimoresun.com/olympicsblog. An excerpt: To: Kevin, et al. You might want to check out this link. Match.com, as you might or might not know, is a popular dating site. Not that I know anything about it. (For the record, I am NOT the same rmaese3641b who enjoys Scrubs, Wes Anderson movies, seaweed salad, the Sunday Times crossword puzzle and California Pinot Noir.) Anyhow, where was I?

Can the Internet be a tool for helping people find real love? Helen Fisher, a biological anthropologist at Rutgers University and adviser to Chemistry.com, a sister website of Match.com, certainly thinks so. In less than two decades, online matchmaking has become a part of the relationship landscape. A survey by Match.com last year found that one in six recently married couples had met through an online dating site, though finding mates through family or friends, or work or school, remained more common.

Housing prices are plummeting. Jobs are evaporating. And the economy is a mess. But singles are wading into the online dating pool in record numbers, giving virtual matchmakers their best traffic figures in years - and giving users even better odds for finding a snuggle buddy, a fling or The One. In addition to "This Cougar is looking for her prey" and other bootylicious come-ons, lonely hearts are now headlining their posts with more somber come-hithers, such...

SUMMER'S balmy weather can stir romantic sensibilities more than any other time of the year. Fortunately for our budgets, the season also is ripe with settings for inexpensive, or even free, dates. Consider the average cost of typical dates. A movie rendezvous, for instance, will empty your wallet by as much as $35, according to Match.com, an online dating service that compiles a cost-of-dating index. Dinner and theater tickets can easily add up to $300. But without dinner and a movie - the bedrock of dating - what do you do?

It's humbling enough to admit I'm looking for love on Match.com. It's exponentially more embarrassing to admit my mother is doing the same thing. No disrespect to the woman who gave me life, but what child of any age would not develop severe nausea at the thought of being in the same dating pool as her parent? Before this disturbing turn of events, my mother spent her hours on the Internet settled in front of the computer with a bowl of Count Chocula, dishing with her deranged pals in the official Beanie Baby chat room or buying limited-edition Furbies on eBay.

Looking for love online? Or like, us, simply hooked on "Hooking Up," ABC's documentary series about online dating that airs tonight? Next Thursday, we'll share another tale, as told to us by a reader, of the good, the bad and the ugly of online dating. As a marketing specialist at an architectural firm in Washington, and as a seeker of an online love connection, Marcia Calhoun knows all about the need for self-promotion. Just as all companies need to advertise their best attributes and abilities, so do men and women who search for love on the Web. Just as companies pitch to a target audience; so, too, do men and women online who cast their net in a self-selected pool of potentials.

Richard264 was at the bar, nursing a cranberry juice when in walked Janel803. Janel803 recognized Richard264 from a photo she'd seen on the Internet. They talked. They ate crab cakes. Afterwards, she made sure he left first -- a single woman can't be too careful. Revealing last names was something they'd work up to on another date. From such awkward roots, great relationships sometimes blossom. Richard and Janel Radford (their real-life names) are happily married now, living in a 4-bedroom house in Ellicott City with a first child due in July.
