He loves me...He loves me not.

By Jen, published on Jun 17, 2007

...we move through our 30's and beyond, find that one special someone to grow old with. What it's really about are the connections we make, and the relationships we have along the way to becoming who we will be when we die. And if you keep your eye out for those connections as you go about your daily routine, and nurture the relationships you've already developed I think you will be hard pressed to find a day in which you are truly lonely. At least, I hope that's what it's about!

An Online Dating Horror Story

By Ed Attanasio, published on Feb 28, 2007

I was very skeptical about entering the world of online dating when I initially signed up with match.com. As a 48-year-old single male with more issues than Reader' Digest, my expectations were understandably low to start with. I've never been married, I don't have any kids and my best friend is my shrink. I decided early on that I would probably be satisfied having a relationship with someone who simply had fewer problems than I did.

I had heard both horror stories as well as wondrous tales about the online dating experience, some undoubtedly as much fiction as truth, and all of them... (more)

My True Love Story

By Jaci Rae, published on Dec 12, 2006

My name is Jaci Rae and this is my true love story. When I first began "serious" dating, everyone was supposed to be "the one." At least that's what everyone told me. 'He's the one for you.' 'When are you two going to get married?' 'Has he popped the question yet?' What many people never saw was the inner turmoil of the relationship and the way the man treated me behind the scenes. Society sees single people as sad and alone, yet whenever I was in a relationship, I was deeply lonely. However, the underlying current of feeling lonely when I was in a relationship was much less when I was single,... (more)

My Los Angeles Dating Manual for the Holidays

By Stephanie Michele, published on Nov 25, 2006

...what their plans were and received five invites. I attended two and teetered on a third. I had great time. I met new people. I ate, drank and while being merry, I was sized up for marriage; my mother would have been so proud of my reviews. I don't mind being single mostly because I hate dating. I am an "all or nothing" sort of person. I don't care for small talk. I believe in long-term relationships. I like the idea of intimacy based on the depth of the connection not just based on the desire to be touched. I like men who are intelligent and patient. Who smile with their eyes and... (more)

Instant Gratification Nation

By Stephanie Michele, published on Oct 29, 2006

...it is hard to find, much less connect with people but it is not always about the destination, sometimes the journey is far more important. Most of what needs to be done to grow love and prepare for a relationship is something we can only do by ourselves.

Forget the promises of online dating, you can't speed the process of finding someone if you are not ready inside. eHarmony promotes their "29 dimensions of compatibility profile" is the most accurate way to connect with a compatible match but what happens if you were not completely tuned into yourself when you filled out your... (more)

Breaking Up For Cowards

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 19, 2017

A new website titled IDump4U will break up with your significant other for a fee. The fee varies based on what type of breakup you are interested in. The site will even be so kind as to record the break up conversation for you so that you can play it later if you want. It used to be over the phone break ups were bad. Then, it progressed to text or email break ups. But now, for a price, you can have someone do it all for you. No muss, no fuss, it's breaking up for cowards.

The site offers $10 for a basic break-up, $25 to call off an engagement and $50 for a divorce. You can, as... (more)

My Face, Off-Book (Part 2)

By the expat returned, published on Nov 19, 2017

...to stay in contact. At a party, met someone, didn’t get their info? Find ‘em on Facebook!

This site, which I didn’t like to begin with, now occupied a large space in my life. Even at a dinner with friends, in the midst of a great time, I was reaching for my iPhone and updating my status. I told myself I was in the flux, but I was really just diverting my own attention from the lovely world around me into this cold, unfeeling machine, to these random lists of people and things that I believed might hold some clue to brilliance, inspiration, excitement.
