Nearly ten years ago, a friend introduced me to a very nice eligible guy, and I agreed to a date. We were having a glass of wine before dinner, and my date brought up the topic of Google, saying, “It’s amazing what you can learn about people on the Internet, like someone finished a 5K in 29:32.” Now this was 2004 in London, and my date had just quoted my finishing time from the 1995 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Houston, Texas. He instantly transformed from a nice guy to downright creepy, and I spent the rest of the evening politely waiting to go home.
