The Today Show featured a segment recently (December 30-31,2002
timeframe) where Matt Lauer interviewed a woman who created a new
dating website where women recommend former boyfriends or former
spouses to be included on the website as someone who's eligible for
dating and the woman recommends them as a good prospect for a
relationship.  The couple just didn't make it for some reason, but she
would like to recommend him to others.  During the interview, Matt
talked with a woman from New York who was recommending her former
spouse, who lives in Phoenix as someone who was a great guy and she
wants to help him find a relationship.  I was so intrigued with the
concept, I failed to write dowm the web address before it was off the

I emailed the Today Show on 1/3/03 to ask them for the address, but
haven't heard from them. I'm sure they receive tons of mail and  may
not have gotten to mine; or more realistically, probably don't answer
all their mail. I've looked on Google under Dating Websites, but
didn't see it there.

I'm very happily married, but have a couple of girlfriends whom I'm
always looking out for in the matchmaking world and would love to give
them this website.

So, that is the question:  What is the web address for this dating
website where women recommend former boyfriends and spouses as good
possibilities for a relationship?

Thanks for your help!

You were great!!  I can't believe how quickly you found the answer,
and not only gave me the answer to my question, but gave additional
information, such as the link to the newspaper article on the topic. 
I also appreciated knowing how you found the answer.  Glad you
mentioned that you saw the same Today Show segment, so I was reassured
it was the site I had seen.  Although, it was very obvious that the
site was the correct one, once I went to it.  Thank you so much for
your great work!!
