The Internet is just as good as church when you're hunting for a spouse, according to Wired magazine (May 2008). Seventeen percent of online daters have turned virtual romance into marriage or long-term relationships. That's 3 million people - the same number who've met in church.
The typical woman's online dating profile claims that she's 20 pounds lighter than the average American woman. And the average man's profile says he's more than an inch taller than the average man. (But a 5'8" man can score as many dates as a 6' one if he makes $146,000 more a year. At 5'2" you have to make $277,000 more each year than the six-foot man.)
Every time you decouple on Facebook, little press releases blast the gossip to all of your friends. Next time you break up, in the "News Feed and Mini-Feed" section of your privacy options deselect "Remove my Relationship Status"; then in your profile settings, change "In a Relationship" to the default "Select Status." But there's a hitch, according to WIRED magazine, your ex's mini-feed will display an update in relationship status. (Nicely ask your former flame to delete it ASAP.)
Myself, I think I'm going to keep my relationship status as "It's complicated" regardless. Because, really, isn't it ALWAYS complicated? ;)
Couples across the country are invited to participate in MY M&M's Milk Chocolate Candies Treasured Moments Challenge to take a vow of silence for a month, sharing their feelings only through M&Ms. (They should have partnered up with Jenny Craig and let the couple lose weight together the next month, because I can't control myself when M&Ms of any kind are around!) The couple selected will begin their vow of silence on June 26.
During the month of silence, you can log on to www.mymms.com/win to view footage of the couple (not talking...it should be riveting footage). ;) Full contest information is here. (Click on the Treasured Moments Challenge to enter.) Submissions will be accepted via the Web and snail mail until June 8.
