HBO is premiering When Strangers Click--a documentary from Food Inc. Robert Kenner about the online search for human connection-- on (how fitting) Valentine's Day.

The film's Facebook page is requesting your stories--and features some cool Wall posts--about online love-searching experiences. The doc "about the way we woo in a wired world" is investigating whether online dating sites have actually made it easier to find love.

Here's a taste of what the doc has in store:

"Kim packed a wedding gown and flew to Prague to marry a man she had only met online. Dave met scores of women before having to reveal a physical shortcoming. At 30, Beth had given up on love before going online. Ryan Googled “gay” to figure out who he was. And Jonas literally found a new life through his Second Life avatar. When these strangers clicked, their lives changed forever."
