A Ghost Encourages His Girlfriend to 'Move On' in Nerve Film

Dark film stands out in the online dating category

Editor's Pick

Why can't all sponsored content be this good? Nerve.com strikes a chord with this darkly funny web film directed by O Positive's David Shane, featuring a ghostly boyfriend encouraging the love of his life to move on with her life, by following around the apparently grieving, sorrowful woman. 

It's starkly different for the category, where eHarmony and Match.com have seemingly saturated the airwaves with shots of beautiful couples doing fun things together -- something that doesn't really capture the difficult, bittersweet experience that online dating can often be.
