    What did you do before you joined the mail order service? I just graduated from college. Why get into it? I was young and didn’t have clear intentions, just curiosity What was the appeal to the US? Russians have a romanticized vision of US – that is free, cool, and a land of opportunity. What were your perceptions of the US before you came? Has your experience been anything like what you were expected since your divorce? Perceptions before I came were shaped by Hollywood – so white picket fence and two story house with two kids and a dog....

    I’ve pondered with you before on this blog (HERE) of the disappearance of something we used to call “dating”  wherein a young man would summon the courage to ask a young lady out to dinner, perhaps to the movies. He would do something called getting “dressed up,” and go to the young woman’s house,  often meet her parents, take her out for the evening, and return her home at a respectable hour. Dating was something that one did beginning in late high school or in college. Youth too young to date were often encouraged by adults to meet one another, and so the adults often...

    Kerry Cronin, who teaches a philosophy class at Boston College, was shocked some years ago during a class on student hookup culture, when a student inquired, “How would you ask someone on a date?” “It’s easy to hook up with someone you’ve just met in a dark room after having a few drinks,” said freshman Frank DiMartino, who took the class. “But asking someone out on a date in broad daylight, when you actually have to know their name, can be really scary.” Other schools are apparently taking notice of the need to explain the socialization/dating procedure, according to The...

    Last week I explained that I was in the dating game from 1996 to 2007, and described four mistakes I made (of course, there were others, too) that kept me in the game by taking me on detours that led nowhere. As I also mentioned, one day in 2007 (it was July) I had a truly successful date, creating a situation that lasts till today. I’m now thinking about what, in the early days of this partnership, were some of the signs that it was promising and headed in the right direction, and what made it different from those other...

    A few weeks ago, OkCupid, the popular “freemium” dating service, started offering its paid subscribers a very cool new tool. Rather than just sort through potential dates by using familiar filters like age and height, you could use the answers OkCupid members gave to various questions, such as “Do you like to watch sports on television?” or, my personal favorite, “Do you find British comedies entertaining?” Questions are an important part of what makes OkCupid work. The site nudges you to answer as many questions as you can stand, and it also nudges you to make your answers public, as...

    National Review ^ | 02/13/2014 | By Steven E. Rhoads
    Valentine’s Day in the 21st century means fewer heart-shaped candy boxes for college women than they would have received in the 20th century. Some women with steady, longstanding boyfriends may get a treat, but casual sex — the hook-up — has made dating much less common. Under the hook-up regime, women who want a man’s attention are expected to dress provocatively and show up at a fraternity house or bar. After drinking too much, some guy will suggest they go somewhere and hook up, which can consist of anything from deep kissing to intercourse. The men are not attentive during...

    1. Coming to the door to pick someone up. I think we’ve all had it with the incredibly unromantic “here” text, and meeting up always seems to be more casual and platonic than the alternative. Of course, meeting someone from online or any circumstance like that would probably be the exception to this rule, but generally: the 30 seconds it takes to get out of a car or cab and knock on the door makes a huge difference. 2.

    Online dating is one of those subjects that Christians enjoy debating. In one camp, there are some who believe looking for love online betrays a lack of faith in God's provision of a spouse. In their view, the seemingly endless lists of online profiles creates a superficial consumer mentality that undermines the sacrificial nature of Christ-centered love. The other side counters that online dating is merely a tool God can use to bring two people together – users don't place their faith in the matchmaking site, but in the Lord. They point to their neighbor/sister/uncle/friend that met his/her spouse online...

    (CN) - San Diego County and a sheriff's detective might be liable for using excessive force and conspiring against a deputy's ex-girlfriend with a "SWAT-like" raid of her home, the 9th Circuit ruled Tuesday. The federal appeals panel in Pasadena, Calif., revived Michelle Cameron's excessive force and conspiracy claims against San Diego County and Sheriff's Detective Michelle Craig. Cameron, a yoga instructor, started dating one of her students, Sheriff's Deputy David Buether, in 2004. The two eventually moved in together and had two children. Their relationship soured in 2008, when Cameron learned that Buether was sleeping with other women, according...

    me, myself and I | 12/25/11 | me
    Hello and happy Holy Days to all! I hope it is okay to post this today, as I am sitting here in my room in Rowland Heights, a good looking never been married man of 49, by myself on Christmas day. Although I am perfectly happy by myself, it would be so nice to share this and many other days with a bright and cute woman of the same conservative ideals that I have! Maybe this thread can be a beginning point for other FR sinlges to someday meet and get to know each other?

    Common faults that mean men miss the mark included watching too much sport and poor personal grooming. Bathroom habits such as leaving the toilet door open were also cited by women taking part in the survey as a frequent failing. The poll of 2,000 women showed more than 75 per cent believed the perfect man did not exist. Other shortcomings were an inability to multi-task, criticising their partner's driving and not getting along with her family. Nikki McReynolds, marketing director for Remington which commissioned the research, said: "It seems that women are actually quite realistic on what they look for...

    KIEV, Ukraine — The former write-in candidate for Arizona governor traveled to Ukraine looking for love. He ended up hungry and sick in a homeless shelter — the victim of an Internet dating scam. Social workers were stunned to find Cary Dolego, 53, sitting on a city street last Wednesday, behaving strangely and suffering from pneumonia. Dolego, who ran for Arizona governor just last year, had traveled to Ukraine this spring to do research for an engineering project and look for a wife. He says he met a woman named Yulia online and, hoping to marry her, went to her...
  • Politics Loom Larger When Dating Turns Into Relationship

    A new research study reviews how, or if, political penchants influence dating and relationship development. Brown University political scientist Dr. Rose McDermott discovered political posturing is conspicuously absent on Internet dating sites. In fact, political views are mentioned less often than card playing or being overweight. Yet paradoxically, political interests appear to be a crucial factor in pursuing long-term relationships. The study is published in Evolution and Human Behavior. “Because we know that long-term mates are more politically similar than random attachment might predict, we were interested to see how people seeking a mate end up with people who share...

  • Match.com: Conservatives More Open To Different Views

    The Winston Review ^ | August 4, 2011 | -TWR-
    According to a Financial Times piece “Inside Match.com,” dated July 29, the president and key engineer, Mandy Ginsberg and Amarnath Thombre, are information-love junkies. Really: Indeed, says Thombre, “the politics one is quite interesting. Conservatives are far more open to reaching out to someone with a different point of view than a liberal is.” That is, when it comes to looking for love, conservatives are more open-minded than liberals. Naturally, if you run the world’s biggest dating site, you’re bound to learn a few practical lessons. “With a mountain of data in its servers from the 75 million users it...

    Cellphone cameras are fantastic gadgets. They allow us to capture those fleeting moments when a traditional camera would take forever to fish out. In a pinch, they’re a wonderful way to quickly share images with family and friends. But getting a nude photo of someone you barely know standing in front of a mirror is not one of the images we had in mind. “Sexting” is the transmission of explicit to downright pornographic images (usually self-portraits) via a cellphone or the Internet. The practice is so pervasive among teens that states such as Texas and New Jersey are attempting to...
  • Mila Kunis Breaks Date With Marine?

    Mila Kunis has reportedly broken her word -- and, along with it, one lonely Marine's heart. Contrary to reports earlier this week, it appears that the "Black Swan" actress won't be attending the Marine Corps Ball with Sgt. Scott Moore in North Carolina this November -- because she has filming commitments that will keep her too busy for traveling. Kunis accepted Moore's invitation to the ball after some prodding from her "Friends With Benefits" co-star, Justin Timberlake, on Monday. After Timberlake alerted Kunis to Moore's come-on, which he posted on YouTube, he urged, "You need to do it for your...

  • Looking for article on how dating affects marriage

    Hello, everyone. Hope no one minds my posting this, but this is driving me nuts. I read an article posted here within the past few weeks about a study done on successful marriages. In it, the article pointed out that marriages were much more likely to survive if the couple hadn't dated as much. In other words, a persons marriage was more likely to fail the more partners they'd had prior to their marriage. So does anyone remember that article? And if so, can you please point me to it? Thank you, and have a happy 4th of July.

    Ten Simple Rules for Dating my Daughter Rule One : If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure not picking anything up. Rule Two : You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them. Rule Three : I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys your age to wear their trousers so loose that...
