How it works: You pay a fee, they mail you a T-shirt, you wear it for three days and send it back. Then you receive used T-shirts of other people. Registration for the first round is filled.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a solution to a problem with online dating. You can see somebody's picture, find their background, but you could not tell how the other person smells until the launch of a new service, Smell Dating. You pay a fee. They mail you a T-shirt. You wear it for three days and send it back. You, then, receive used T-shirts of other people. Apparently, people want this service. A website says registration for the first round of Smell Dating is now closed. It's MORNING EDITION.
