How about mail order?

Harry Singh has abandoned his quest to Find a Wife because dating is too much like a game of chess:

My take on the whole issue was that most modern relationships are like a game of chess. People mull over their moves, they brainstorm about the other person's plans and then they make their moves all the time worrying about what the other person is going to do next. You can give these things the labels of "element of mystery", "my dignity" and "your dignity" but in the end, it is essentially reduced to a game of chess.

I always figured that we played chess because it was so hard for us to find a date.
