NY TIMES WEDDINGS FOR DUMMIES

Or at least that's what this site should be called. But instead, it's called Veiled Conceit. Their motto? A glimpse into that haven of superficial, pretentious, pseudo-aristocratic vanity: The NY Times' Wedding & Celebration Announcements Best post I've seen is this one, extrapolating an imagined Jdate-originating email correspondence between two people whose wedding was announced in the Sunday Times. Satire, irony, snark--come and get 'em. (Thanks to Bloghead for turning me on to this...)

I met my Husband on Jdate and our announcement was in the NYT as well. I'm not sure if you're making fun of either or both, but to me it appears like jealousy.

Of course it's jealousy. And making fun of both of them. For every "successful" couple like you and your husband, there are hundreds of us out here who suffer bad experiences on JDate--any piece of dating-related humor helps. This is in that vein.
