It may seem like online dating is a new thing, but it stretches back farther than you'd think. Case in point: American People/Link, an early dial-up relationship service using Teletext — a much hyped (but little used) online graphical display technology at the time. I'm not sure how successful the service was, but that guy looks pretty happy. If anybody out there ever used People/Link, we'd love to hear from you.
