Can't capture love? Try the Net

The big difference between ecrush and Internet meeting sites is that to use ecrush you'll need to know the e-mail address of the person you're stalking, er, wooing.

You log on, enter the name and e-mail address of your romantic interest and an anonymous e-mail goes out to that person.

The site, launched in 1999, claims to have matched 600,000 people with lines like, "I'm not in love with you because you're someone I could live with. I'm in love with you because you're someone I can't live without."

Ecrush also has romance quizzes, advice columns, chat rooms and tales from dating hell.

Trying to make sense of your significant other?

This site has a quiz -- one for her, another for him -- to rate your understanding of the opposite sex.

A sample question for her: "When is it O.K. to throw away a pair of your man's veteran underwear?" And a sample for him: "What does a woman really mean when she says, 'Do you like this recipe?'"

If all else fails, melt your beloved's heart with an online video of the Valentines' Performing Pigs. They're cute, fat, garlanded and have been on the "David Letterman Show."

Steve and Priscilla Valentine, of Seattle, Washington, trained these flower-necklaced porkers to jump through hoops, go skateboarding, pop balloons and slam dunk basketballs.
