True love is based on many things, all of which are for naught if they don't drive at least a newish Mitsubishi Eclipse. Helping you get to the important stuff right up front, DateMyRide.com.
Eschewing the usual personal/personality details required by most dating sites, DMR's a brand-new personals portal that instead matches people based on the type of car they drive via a bare-bones search function (drop-down options range from the Mercedes C-Class, to (seriously) the Ford Aerostar), or via an I-Saw-U-style "Spotted" section designed to answer the question posed by their motto "Was there your dream date in the car just passed you on a highway?"... well, if she cares about grammar, probably not. Some Spotted gems:
Spider was "on W Adams St I saw you in silver 2door Honda Civic. It looked like you were listening to some funky song because you were bouncing in your seat. You even waved at me while you were bouncing. PM me" -- a weird suggestion, as people attracted to those in Hondas only rarely become Prime Ministers of Great Britain.
Christinett "saw this guy in a red Corvette in down town. You cut me off at the intersection. I'd like to return a favor", but not Derrick Favors, cause nobody's sure if that guy's good or not yet.

PaulM: "Why there are no girls in here?"
DMR's also giving away free iPods to encourage new users, plus they've got a blog that includes video of a pick-up singing America Pie, and a list of the "10 best dating cars for guys", all of which look an awwwwwwful lot like an Eagle Talon.
