In the not too distant past, you needed to introduce yourself, have a conversation, maybe even get a coffee in order to find out your new paramour’s interests. Revealing parts of yourself slowly over time was a part of courtship. For almost a decade now, however, Facebook has permitted us to bypass such niceties. Want to know that cute guy’s interest in music or you new lab partners favorite book? Check out their Facebook “likes.” Sure, it’s best to get to know someone away from the glaring screen of laptops, but in the mean time why not take a look to see if your new girl prefers Star Trek or Grey’s Anatomy, and if your new guy listens to Iron Maiden or (gasp) Justin Beiber. It will make for interesting dinner conversation at the very least!
