While you might think that online dating is tough – listen to this.

Zookeepers in the Netherlands are trying to play matchmaker to Indonesian and Dutch orangutans over the Internet. Seriously.

It works by connecting various zookeepers and letting them talk about the various orangutans that they have and who they think might get along best as mates. There are even video feeds that will ‘introduce’ the primates to each other to see if there’s a positive reaction.

They can even feed each other by means of a button. When the orangutan pushes the button during a video meeting, the other orangutan will receive a treat.

Dinner for two, anyone?

However, just like any relationship, it seems that there are troubles ahead for those long distance animal lovers – the trip from Apeldoorn and Indonesia is a long one. And this means that many of the orangutans may never meet.

But the inventions of web cams and computer systems that will allow them to ‘date’ online gives many daters hope that things will work better for them.

However, a word of advice for all online daters: there are monkeys looking for love online too, so you should try to be as specific as you can about the species that you’re willing to meet for coffee.
