There's been a witty London stranger and a banker in Mexico City.A physician in West Palm Beach and computer wonks from South Jersey to Zurich.But that was before I went online last year -- before I discovered cyberdating.Since then, it's been Allan in Toronto, Larry in Brooklyn and Mark in Phoenix.
