'Tweeting' is like dating for rocker John Mayer.

The serial Twitter.com user posts small talk snippets about himself and his opinions during regularly updates on the microblogging website, and he has become convinced the constant interaction with his followers is the equivalent of taking someone out for dinner for the first time.

He explains, "Knowing that I could blog right now from my iPhone and it's up on the internet with people reading it and responding to it. How much is that a synthetic version of having dinner with somebody?"

But Mayer realises potential girlfriends could feel intimidated by his love for the website.

He adds, "How intimidating must it be to try to find an 'in' with the man who is consistently satisfying himself by all means necessary? Where is her place in that?"

The star has previously dated Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson.
