Well, lookie here. Another New York Times’ Style section article about a “lifestyle trend” that’s sweeping the nation. The topic? De-friending. Not just online. IRL. I know. Groundbreaking, right? It’s no secret that people drift apart, or lose commonalities. But OK, maybe there’s a point here. The internet has given us an abnormal saturation of friendships and it’s not as evident as to how to get rid of them or even deal with them. Maybe because half the time you can avoid face-to-face confrontation. Keep reading »

I’m known amongst my friends as a serial dater. I enjoy going on first dates. Or I used to. In the last few years, I began to feel an encroaching anxiety before every first date. There was one thing standing between me and enjoying dating. It was a monster. Every time I met a girl I liked, I would sit at my computer and open my browser. My fingers would start tapping. And I couldn’t resist. Clicking. Going through images. Info.

“Look what I have to show you,” the monster would beckon me. And it had a lot to show me.

It knew my date’s favorite books, movies, music, even quotes. It knew her interests. It showcased videos of her with friends. And worst of all it was the gatekeeper of her photos. Sometimes just a few, sometimes hundreds, thousands. So many photos of the girl I hadn’t even gone out with yet! The monster would only show her good ones, of course. The bad ones were untagged, which made me wonder what the bad ones looked like. That monster was Facebook. And it was ruining my ability to date like a normal human being. Keep reading »

Fifty-one-year-old Illinois woman, ArLynn Presser, has taken to telling herself how normal she is. Well, maybe not normal. But not so strange in comparison to other people. That’s what she learned this year. Her 2010 New Year’s resolution was to attempt to conquer her agoraphobia by endeavoring to meet all 335 of her Facebook friends in person. For one year, ArLynn told herself, “There are no safe spots, there are no dangerous spots. There are just places I’m going and people I’m seeing.” Her “Face to Facebook” project turned into a life-changing year that spanned 12 countries and 51 cities.  Her journey, in which she learned how to open a champagne bottle with a machete and sing opera, amongst other things, is captured in this new documentary.

Once upon a time, a man (Richard Gere) paid upwards of $10,000 for a week of the Girlfriend Experience (from Julia Roberts, no less). But these days, the laws of supply and demand have totally skewed things, and women have now lowered their fake girlfriend rates to a pittance. A woman named Cathy on the website Fiverr — which gives users the ability to charge one another five dollars for virtually anything — is offering up herself as a fake Facebook girlfriend for up to 10 days. Yes, she’ll pretend to be “in a relationship” with you for only $5. That’s the price of a latte, jerks! And, if that’s not quite to your liking, she’ll also, alternatively, leave jealousy-inducing messages on your Facebook wall for the same price — up to three per day.  Keep reading »
