Don’t judge me by my Android phone, Match.com! I resent the fact that a new study done by the online matchmaking site claims that Droid users are the loosest of all Smartphone owners. I quote: “Androids may be the newest Smartphone on the market but their users have already been around the block.” from a recent blog post which details the findings of this cellular study.
According to their research, “62 percent of Android users have sex on the first date and are most likely to have a one night stand, at 55 percent.” Oh, that’s great. Now I have to hide my Droid so my date doesn’t believe I’m just down for a quickie in the bathroom stall of a restaurant. Keep reading »
Consider yourself lucky, Demi Moore; you broke free from Ashton a healthier woman (just don’t smoke any more of those crazy herbs, girl). New research suggests that marrying a younger man may be a cause for increased mortality rates among women. That totally shatters my dreams of bagging a 30-year-old on my 55th birthday. It seems that if we want to have a long and healthy life, us women are better off marrying a guy our age — or at least that’s what researchers believe. Keep reading »
I am not afraid to admit that I have had two online dating accounts — one with Plenty Of Fish and another with OK Cupid. I have been messaged by hundreds of guys, which lead to three dates, and absolutely ZERO luck. I feel like I’m in one of those Lucky Charms commercials. Whoever my Mr. Right is sure knows how to use his “marshmallow magic” to hide in the sea of uninteresting, not cute enough, too shallow or completely skeevy men who have barraged my inbox with messages.
All of this disappointment has me wondering, am I just too picky? Today I found the answer: Yes — but it’s not my fault (whew!). Thanks to a CNN Health article called “Dating and the Challenge of Too Many Choices,” I now know that when people are faced with too many options (as most ladies are in the online dating world), they tend to choose none at all.

Our favorite part of Newt Gingrich’s platform was his promise to build an American moon colony. “Imagine weightlessness and its effects” he said of the benefit of the space honeymoons, which he believes will be all the rage in a few short years. We’re not really seeing romantic space getaways catching on anytime soon. Zero-gravity sex sounds like a disaster to us. Our reasons after the jump. Keep reading »
No date for Valentine’s Day and not afraid to do something desperate to get one? For $300, $700, or $1,200 you can pay for a membership package on PersonalDatingAgent.com to help you find that special someone. And luckily for you, the “initial setup fee” is free until Valentine’s Day! Whoopie!
So, how do you go about deciding which package is right for you? First it’s a question of finances. How much money do you have to spend on an incredible dating service with a plethora of testimonials by young professionals (James, John, Sarah, and Elizabeth) who claim to love the site that “does all of the work for them”? I personally think I’d go with the “executive package.” For only $1,200 I would be guaranteed 4+ dates and services including predate advice, stylist advice, concierge service and a professional photo shoot.

You just enjoyed some great sexytime with a guy you’re really, really into. He isn’t hurriedly getting dressed and running out of the door while making embarrassed excuses. Instead, he is soundly asleep next to you, as quiet and comfortable as a baby. Perhaps he is even holding you in his arms. Does this mean that he will stick around in the long-run? Eh, actually, Michigan researchers believe that men may fall asleep after sex to avoid commitment talks, but don’t worry ladies — they’re only doing it for us! Keep reading »
For the new year, women go to extreme lengths to ditch old baggage: we clean out our closets, buy new “essential” wardrobe pieces, start looking for new jobs, vow to lose a few pounds or even get full-on makeovers. But sometimes our “special someone” is the real dead weight that should be tossed out. Here are 10 signs that Mr. Right has become so wrong. Keep reading »
Real world dating is tough. As a 21-year-old student in a busy city, it’s been hard for me to find Mr. Right. Curious about what single straight men are really looking for, I created an OKCupid profile and then tweaked different options to see how the way I presented myself affected the responses I got from men. Here’s what I learned… Keep reading »
I was afraid of falling in love with a gay guy. My sister diagnosed me with “homophilaphobia,” derived from the Greek roots homo, phila (which means love), and phobia. Even though it is not a real word, I had been dealing with it for a while and with good reason. I dated a guy who I thought was the love of my life for two years. On my birthday he confessed to me that he was in love with his (male) best friend from childhood. At first I was angry, then disturbed, and eventually paranoid. Every man I tried to date after him started to show clear signs that he was either on the down low or ready to bust out of the closet singing Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.” Keep reading »
