Stats Prove Friends-With-Benefits is the New Dating

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.

Finding a Boyfriend Through Online Dating, Week 4 [One Month Challenge]

Cue the tears, cue Adele, and cue me shoveling Ben and Jerry’s down my throat. I’m okay though really.

OnlineDating.edu?

Two lovely ladies at Columbia University developed the idea to start a dating site, DateMySchool.com, strictly for us collegiate lovers. That's right, with this site you can breathe easy: there won't be any creepy 50 year old friend requests or pokes from your younger brother's annoying friends. To become a member of the site you must have a working .edu email address.

5 Guys Who Should Be Banned From Dating Sites

Recently, BeautifulPeople.com - an online dating service for, well, beautiful people – cleansed itself of its fatter members. After receiving customer complaints (from some ridiculously good looking people, I presume), the website went through and kicked out anyone with a little extra junk in their trunk.

Sexy Time: Last Minute Gifts Get Sexy

If you're one of those slackers who leaves your Christmas shopping until Christmas Eve (much to the scorn of retail workers everywhere) there’s no need to fret. Sex can be a great gift to anyone on your list this year. Yeah, that’s right, I said anyone. Now before you start calling me perverted, let me show you what I mean.

Tis Better To Give Than To Receive…Especially These Gifts

Oh, how I love Christmas morning. There's nothing quite like waking up to the smell of slow-roasting, honey-baked ham and my dad's own personal off-key rendition of "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire." But, let's be honest, as much as I love food/my family/blah blah blah, I (like most of you reading this) like getting presents the most.

I’m Torn: Facebook Official

Okay, so as if the world of flirting/dating/hooking up in dark corners wasn’t already confusing enough, we now have Facebook thrown in the mix. You can poke the cutie from Calculus, send some racy “private messages,” and maybe even send a condom or two his way. But when you actually really like a guy, and have even gone on a couple "dates," the whole FB situation gets ten times more complicated.

I’m Torn: Online Dating

I've learned a ton of useful things at college, and I hate to say (sorry Mom and Dad) that most of most of this knowledge I've acquired outside of the classroom. One pivotal lesson I've gleaned from my 3 years in school: dating in college is hard.

Your Pictures Are For The Taking

Truth is, you never know who can get their grubby little paws on your stuff once you've handed it over to the world wide web, especially considering you can never really take it down. Who knows what weird company (CollegeCandy.com) is going to pick up your drunken selfie and splash it on billboards (or websites) nationwide?

Sexy Time: Online Lovin’

When you think of internet dating, you probably think about your best friend’s 59 year-old father and his many (failed) attempts to meet “the one” on Match.com. Even if we were dismally lonely, I highly doubt most of us would allow ourselves to get so far as to post our own profile for the viewing pleasure of a middle-aged audience. But what if the dating site was geared towards college students?

Internet Dating: Lies, Lies…and Models?
