​Study: Online Dating Isn't As Efficient or Promising as We Think

While some may still be hesitant to join the flashy (sometimes literally) world of online dating, it's obviously becoming more of an appealing option for those who are currently witnessing their own existential demise at the hands of loneliness.

This Is The Most Intense List of Demands You've Ever Seen On OKCupid

Only an hour ago, I was sitting in my living room petting my guinea pigs and being blissfully unaware that the person you are about to meet exists. But then, a tipster (let's call him Brian, because that is his name) sent in the most nutty list of demands you've seen on OKCupid since...ever.

Paris: Keep Your Love Locks Out, You're Ruining Everything

Parisians are over you and your need to express your love with padlocks on their bridges like some whimsical literary novel protagonist.

Both were smitten, but only one of them could launch a social media campaign searching frantically for the other without looking desperate. That would be the dude. » 8/09/14 4:00pm 8/09/14 4:00pm

​You're Probably Thinking About Soul Mates All Wrong

Did you know that if love is a motivational poster — and obviously it is — then how you imagine that poster is pretty key, whether it's a cat hanging in there or soul mate scrawled in cursive on a scroll of destiny-weathered papyrus? And that if you believe in the latter, you're probably kinda screwed? Because maybe. » 8/05/14 2:40pm 8/05/14 2:40pm

How Can You Possibly Love an Adult Who Eats Like a Toddler?

She's a meat-eater; he's vegan. She likes salads; he lives on hot dogs and Cheez Whiz. These are examples of real-life couples whose pairings make no sense to me. Because I could not love a person (romantically) who would never eat vegetables. Or if I did love them, I would consider it star-crossed. Uh,… » 8/01/14 2:40pm 8/01/14 2:40pm

New Dating App Requires Even Less Effort in Hunt to Avoid Loneliness

Online dating is hard. And not because going on dates kind of sucks or because you're constantly getting sexually harassed by strangers on the internet or because you feel like your soul/personality is slowly being commodified into something obscene and unrecognizable. I mean it's hard because swiping through Tinder… » 7/16/14 5:00pm 7/16/14 5:00pm
