    Interesting jingles to consider: http://we.luv.it/ and http://we.love.it/ both taken of course.

    Surprised:

    I’m very surprised that date.me went for less than $100K, maybe the 200 other .cctlds lowered the otherwise great possibilities

    Marko:

    Shame loves.me is still with the registry. Would be a good portal for jingles like tyson.loves.me

    So far, people go for http://tysonloves.me
