Henry Cavill says he's scared to date post-#MeToo because he doesn't want to be called a rapist. Is he alone?
Ultimately, treating #MeToo as something abnormal because it holds men accountable for their behavior “speaks volumes” about men who feel that way, Durvasula says. “A potential partner wants to feel desirable and attractive, not like a prize or prey. There’s a difference.”

No One Thrills Me (Like You Do) - RayShippouUchiha - James Bond (Craig movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“Nonsense,” Moneypenny waved a dismissive hand in his direction, “I’ve already got it arranged. Friday, one o’clock. I’ve put it into your schedule and, hopefully, it’ll be a nice, casual lunch date with the possibility of dinner later. I’ll send a car around because I won’t have you late or lost on the Tube. Again.”

Q thought of protesting, reminded himself of just who he was talking to, and quickly deflated.

“Fine,” he finally grumbled. “But when it ends in disaster I’m free for the rest of the weekend. No meddling allowed for at least a week.”

“Deal.” Moneypenny thankfully agreed.

A Hundred Happy Things - busaikko - Stargate Atlantis [Archive of Our Own]

Harlequin AU (no Stargate). Kaleb's long gone, Jeannie's got a career, Madison has problems, Rodney's got Inner Power!, and Sheppard. . . is pretty much the same.

date, interrupted - haleofStilesheart - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Stiles has never been on a date before. That's why he's so excited when a guy from his statistics class asks him out.
Of course, a supernatural emergency comes along to ruin it. Fortunately, Derek's there for him.

Facebook Dating will fail! • Medium
Amit Shafrir:
<p>Facebook is a media company whose main business model is generating revenue via ads. The best way to monetize a successful dating service is via direct payment from users. Subscriptions, one-off payments, etc.

Monetization is simply not in Facebook’s DNA. It never has been, and they have no experience in it.
Successfully monetizing a dating service is mostly about understanding human psychology. Knowing WHAT to offer to WHOM and at WHAT time. There is an art and a science to successful monetization.

My sense is that Facebook is not treating this opportunity with the gravitas that its potential merits. It is limiting itself to a small subset of its vast userbase of over 2 billion, and to a subset of potential functionality.

It is not clear why Facebook is not seeing this for the opportunity it is. Here’s a small back of the envelope calculation: If Facebook gets just 10% of its user base, that is, 200 million users to use this service, and if it is able to extract an ARPU of $2/month (doable in my opinion) — that would generate $4.8bn of incremental revenues. Given that Facebook would not have to incur any costs of acquisition, it’s likely that a clear majority of this revenue would be translated into EBITDA-say 80%=$3.84bn. With a current multiple of 29, that adds $111bn to its market cap of $571bn, an increase of 20%!

Unless something radically changes, I predict that Facebook’s efforts on the dating front will fail, and that is saddening. Done right, FBDate could be the ultimate dating service out there.</p>

He's right, it could be huge; but the disconnect between the business models is, as he says, big.

The Feeling is Mutual - by summerofspock
“You are 8.23 minutes late.”

Jim grits his teeth. “Yep. My bike broke down and I had to take the bus. I missed the 7:45 and had to take the 7:55.”

Spock doesn’t reply and Jim’s face goes a little red. He was rambling wasn’t he? He sets his bag down and settles in to his chair, the biometrics of his computer automatically recognizing him and booting up. He tries not to scrutinize Spock too much but as tends to happen his eyes drift over to the Vulcan. He’s dressed impeccably as always, blue shirt and black slacks. Jim thinks Spock only owns two types of blue shirts, his uniform and a formal off duty shirt. Today is an off duty shirt.

It’s been a year since they both were promoted to Pike’s first officer. Spock working with the numbers and Jim with the people. “Together you’re like the perfect first officer,” Pike had said jovially, sealing their fate.

At first Jim was excited, he always had liked working with people. And then he met Spock who was all blank stares and rulebooks and pinched eyebrows. Apparently, the guy used to be an instructor at the academy and Jim thanks his lucky stars he never took one of his classes. Jim doesn’t know how much of Spock’s behavior is Vulcan culture and how much was just Spock being a bastard. But damn does Jim hate that bastard.

Not that he ever shows it. Of course not. Jim is the picture of pleasant. He smiles at Spock every day when he arrives. For the first month after being planetside, he always asked him how his weekend went when Monday rolled around and even used to invited him out for beers with Leonard when happy hour finally came those first few weeks. But he was consistently met with a stoic wall and frowning eyes. Obviously, Spock did not engage in such frivolous pursuits.
