    Pass the sick bucket. This week Michelle Obama, first lady, wife, mom, has taken on a new role, as dating adviser to the world’s single females. In an interview with American Glamour magazine, she clearly sets out her policy on one of the most pressing social issues facing young women. Rule number one: don’t pick a man just because of his looks. “Cute’s good,” says the woman married to the cutest political leader the world has ever seen. “But cute only lasts for so long, and then it’s, 'Who are you as a person?’" “That’s the advice I would give...

    AN Indian man claims he has been cheated by the cosmetics firm that makes popular deodorant Lynx after failing to land a girlfriend for the past seven years. Vaibhav Bev has been using Lynx deodorant since 2002, in the hope the company's promotional campaign - which features scantily clad women throwing themselves at men - had some basis in real life. Mr Bev is suing the maker of Lynx - marketed as Axe in his home country - for more than $100,000, seeking compensation for "depression and psychological damage". "I used it for seven years but no girl came to...

    Michelle Obama is sharing her rules for finding Mr. Right. For starters: Looks aren't everything. "Cute's good," the First Lady tells the new issue Glamour magazine, out November 10. "But cute only lasts for so long, and then it's, 'Who are you as a person?'" According to Mrs. O, women shouldn't be concerned with the "bankbook" or "the title," but instead focus on the heart and soul of the person they're interested in. "You should always feel good," Obama says. Obama, who is the covergirl of Glamour's December issue, donned a stunning bright red dress for shoot and is...

    » Black women are sweethearts. Or just talkative. But either way, they are by far the most likely to reply to your first message. In many cases, their response rate is one and a half times the average, and overall black women reply about a quarter more often. » White men get more responses. Whatever it is, white males just get more replies from almost every group.

    The only thing worse than having a job is looking for a job. Much the same can be said about dating. Men too often put up with a lot of crap from women just to save having to start looking again. In our minds, that shouldn't be the case. The longer a man is in this situation, the more he will grow accustomed to the drudgery, leading him to stay in the relationship far longer than its expiration date. Whether you suspect that you’re in this situation or you know it for a fact, we’re here to introduce you to...

    My Weekly Date with a Liberal - ‘Emotional Redistribution’ by Jon David The article will begin shortly. Thank you for your patience.  Let’s begin.Although facebook has been the gift that keeps on giving in terms of confirming whether or not a prospective date is or is not a liberal, for this installment I thought I’d put my instincts to the test by participating in the very underrated process of “stereotyping.”I think, and rightfully so, that many Americans feel that Los Angeles is a place bankrupt of spirituality…not to mention just plain bankrupt. However, there is a spiritual movement among Angelinos...

    WASHINGTON, July 19 (UPI) -- More single senior Americans are looking for love online , experts say. Online Dating Magazine editor Joe Tracy said the increase in seniors using their computers to find the right romantic partner follows increased marketing by online dating groups targeting the age demographic, The Washington Post reported Sunday. "They're seeing their sons and daughters use online dating and have success with it," Tracy said. "And we've been seeing online dating services really target the senior citizens and baby-boomer market." University of Washington sociologist Pepper Schwartz, who is studying relationships, said online dating services help expand...

    "RATE" Leaders Abandon Geologic Fantasies and Admit that Extensive Radioactive Decay has Occurred Kevin R. Henke, Ph.D. The following material may be freely copied and distributed as long as the author is properly acknowledged and the material is not altered, edited or sold. For decades, young-Earth creationists (YECs) have vainly searched the geology and geochemistry literature to find ways of discrediting radiometric dating and protecting their antiquated biblical interpretations. YEC John Woodmorappe (a pseudonym), for example, has been at the forefront in misquoting and misrepresenting radiometric dating results from the geology and geochemistry literature (e.g., Woodmorappe, 1979, 1999).  Woodmorappe's shotgun attacks...

    My Weekly Date with a Liberal – ‘American Heart’by Jon David In my mind, I have received thousands upon thousands of emails from folks wondering why “My Weekly Date with a Liberal” is anything but weekly. This is certainly a legitimate question which deserves a legitimate answer. But who has the time to answer thousands of emails that were never actually written? So for this chapter, I’ve decided that I will address this issue right here, right now, by explaining the process which occurs between these dates, and more importantly, to relay a recent encounter I had with a liberal...

    Neuroscientists found woman's partner status relevant for her interest in the opposite sex A study by neuroscientist Heather Rupp and her team found that a woman's partner status influenced her interest in the opposite sex. In the study¹, published in the March issue of Human Nature, women both with and without sexual partners showed little difference in their subjective ratings of photos of men when considering such measures as masculinity and attractiveness. However, the women who did not have sexual partners spent more time evaluating photos of men, demonstrating a greater interest in the photos. No such difference was found...

    “Honey, do you remember our first date?” I asked Husband-Head after hanging up the phone with my old high school girlfriend from California. “What did we do and how did we meet?” Husband-Head was sitting on the couch and it was clear that there couldn’t be a subject he was less interested in than that of reminiscing about our dating days nearly 20 years ago. Why is it that we girls want to remember every detailed minute, yet the actual wedding date seems to be a painful memory for the men? From what I recall, the first time I met...

When her chewing gum goes bland, she doesn't wait to spit it out. So why does she stick around when this loser starts to shout? When her inkpen starts to leak, she will not let it stain her hands. Why does she tell herself she can't find a better man? Her old friends tried to help, but, no, he cut them off instead. He isolates his captive, pushing buttons in her head.

    Single FReeper Ping List (An experiment)   There are many of us here who are happily married or in a relationship, and many here who are single. There have been a few other singles ping lists on here concerning this subject. I wanted to begin a new one. There must be a few things to remember about this issue, though. We are conservatives. Therefore, we have people out there who lurk on here to attempt to embarass, shame, ridicule, or otherwise attack us for our beliefs. These are small people who have no lives themselves, and should be simply ignored. That being...
