Stats Prove Friends-With-Benefits is the New Dating


If you didn’t know, does an annual Singles in America study, which measures everything from the effects of the economy and Google on relationships, to researching the #1 place for singles to meet. This year’s study, their third, has revealed something about the changing nature of the modern relationship: the number of relations dubbed “Friends With Benefits” is increasing.

You can chalk this increase up to a number of facts. Personally, I think it may be due to the successes of the 2011 hit movies No Strings and Attached and the appropriately-titled Friends With Benefits. And the fact that Ashton Kutcher and Justin Timberlake starred in them. To get the full facts and figures, as well as more results of the study, check out YourTango’s Experts’ Blog article!

Questions I often ask myself: "How many romantic comedy references is too many?" and "Are five puns excessive for one sentence?"
