Fun advice from Wired on How To Turn Your Flickr Crush Into Real Romance (apparently there's a we met on flickr group - which, as a concept, I must admit I find a little scary)
Don't pursue someone with hundreds of contacts who posts provocativeself-portraits (Miss Aniela, featured above, for example). The chance that you could catch the attention of someone with such a busy Flickr life is slim. (If you have some fresh approach that you think would work, please e-mail it to this author in detail and he will ... uh ... review it.) Instead, focus your crush on the diamond in the rough: the shy librarian, the surfer with a fondness for black-and-white.
