A shy, lonely computer genius tries to find love in the digital age.This tale is a testimony to the brutal impersonality of modern-day technology. Pygmalion for the 21st century.


"Computer genius Dr. Carl Wingate has spent his life programming software and shaping the digital world. A widower in his 50s, Carl tries to find love again but no one sparks his interest. When his daughter suggests online dating, Carl decides to join Southern Singles and meets a special woman with the handle Lonely Magnolia.
This is a clever short story about technology and love. You could take this as a commentary on the detached way we as a modern society make friends and start relationships online. Or you can just enjoy it for the interesting listen that it is. I expected it to end differently, but John Isaac Jones is always unexpected. The narration was immersive and fit the story well. It's a good way to spend an hour, and worth the listen." - Reviewer
