Google launches Romance site

Investors in Indian dating/matrimonial web sites are doomed. For Google, after taking on Yahoo Finance, has now launched Google Romance, "a place where you can post all types of romantic information and, using our Soulmate Search™, get back search results that could, in theory, include the love of your life".
With Google Romance, you can:
* Upload your profile – tell the world who you are, or, more to the point, who you’d like to think you are, or, even more to the point, who you want others to think you are.
* Search for love in all (or at least a statistically significant majority of) the right places with Soulmate Search, our eerily effective psychographic matchmaking software.
* Endure, via our Contextual Dating option, thematically appropriate multimedia advertising throughout the entirety of your free date.

Oh, by the way, also check out Google's April 1 press release announcing the launch of the new service.
