So you're on a date, and the conversation turns to ghosts and UFOs, and the other person flatly declares he or she doesn't believe in that woo-woo crap. Awkward! But fear not — now there's The Amazing Kreskin's Supernatural Dating Society, aimed at making love matches 'twixt paranormal enthusiasts.
Kreskin did an interview with dating bible Cosmopolitan about the new site, in which he predicts (he is a mentalist, after all) the venture will "take on a dimension that I never realized."
Though 8o-year-old is single, he's not among the site's dating pool:
I only have four days off a month, so there's not much time for dating. What I'm going to do also, is I'm going to make some commentary every week or two on what seems to be the dominant thing people are wanting to read about, whether it's a UFO thing or something else, and then I can give my own experiences and so forth. I like to keep on top of things.
Too bad, since he has a pretty incisive view of modern love.
People are not hearing what each other [is] saying anymore. They're so used to looking at notes and looking at a machine in their hands that they're looking at quick bites and not fully paying attention to what's said. I want to say to everyone, when you meet someone in person and you really want to show your love for them, your feeling for them: For god's sakes, put the damn cell phone away. Don't sit in a room at a dining room table or a table in a restaurant with a cell phone on the table because unconsciously you're saying, "I like you, but really, I don't feel totally close, totally committed because I need this other support." I'm not saying we shouldn't have cell phones, but people are going to have to talk and build on their thoughts because one of the greatest gifts we have is not just talking to each other but listening.
