Art Imitates Life

Last August, a crazy online dating story with twists and turns garnered a lot of attention. I (Dodai) wrote that it was "bizarre, completely epic" and "seemingly made-for-the-big screen." The gist of it: A man creates an online profile of a hot young soldier and "meets" a hot young girl via IM. They get engaged, never realizing that each is not whom they claim to be. Last night, Law & Order's episode seemed to be inspired by the tale! Watch a recap here. [Hulu]
