If your type is excessively strange

Extensis do type management software. They have also done a Valentine typeface dating simulation called TYPEmatching. You pick a couple of daters with personality determined by their font, drag them onto the screen and watch the date. The first date I tried was the usual cringeworthy train crash of a blind date, but then I started making up same sex couples and the dates are hilarious. I like Mistral and Comic Sans best, but Helvetica and American Typewriter are just plain disturbing together. Clean your knees, American Typewriter!
