Description: Virgil and Willie have both had it with the dating scene. Virgil because he keeps getting these big macho guys who want to be his sugar daddy, Willie because he feels like a dork in a herd of suave, hot guys. So it's a happy coincidence when they both decide to place a computer personal ad, and manage to find each other. They have a lot in common. They're both computer geeks, both a little shy, and both needing exactly what they find together. Thank goodness for love dot come style.

The phone was ringing as Virgil let himself into his tiny walk up, and he tripped over Scratch, his dog, as he lunged for the handset.
"Kia? I swear to God if that's you, I'm going to kill you."
"Then it's not me." His friend sounded amused. Virgil could just picture the evil little half smile on her face. "So I take it the date went not well."
"Not well is the understatement of the century." Struggling out of his coat, Virgil leaned down to pet Scratch before moving to the kitchen for a Coke and a bag of M&Ms. Just thinking about the hulking crew-cut blonde with the prehensile eyebrows who wanted to diaper him and call him baby made him shudder.
"He was a freak, Kia."
"Well, Karl made him sound like such a great guy."
"Sure, if you like the slightly inhuman, master race type." When he finally settled at the computer and fired it up, Virgil had all he needed for the night; chocolate, Slim Jims, his dog at his feet and about a gallon of soda.
"You're so nice. How are you ever going to meet someone if I don't set you up? You never get out."
His email yielded a bug in the game program he'd just sent to beta, several offers to enlarge his penis (he needed to redo his filters and check for spyware) and a weekly missive from his mom, who had given up trying to get a hold of him any other way than electronically.
"I don't know, but I think I've given up on you as a matchmaker. Why didn't you call my cell like you were supposed to anyway? I could have gotten out of the last half-hour of dirty talk and avoidance of hands."
"Zieg wouldn't let me." Zieg was Kia's boyfriend and Karl's best friend, Karl being the guy who had recommended the Terminator for a blind date with Virgil.
"Yeah, well, don't do me anymore favors, okay? I'm going to try an online personals service."
