With the national divorce rate steadily declining, maybe the new way is better. Statistics show people are dating longer and marrying later. Stowell said his clients are usually in their late 30s, if not older. He said maturity definitely helps a person find what they're looking for.

[2007-05-14] Issue of race in dating industry
Stereotyping in itself is a volatile issue, and at some point during intake interviews, I often repeated the phrase “While there is some truth to all stereotypes, there are certainly many exceptions to every single one.” However, when one is dealing with a sample of more than 20,000 single, divorced, and widowed men and women, I feel confident and comfortable making certain statements in a column titled The Truth about Dating. Yet I was still hesitant to write this column, until a reader sent me an article from The New York Times, in which the author, John Tierney, published a story about r [...]
[2007-05-14] International marriages in SKorea
"I don't know why but at that moment, I knew I had just found my man," said Hong, 21, beaming at her husband who is 19 years older than her. "Age does not matter. I am very happy now," she said in halting Korean, her gold bracelet glinting as she flipped through an album of their wedding photos taken in Ho Chi Minh City. Her husband Kim Choong-Hwan, a 40-year-old truck driver, has only one regret. "I regret I had no chance to meet a Vietnamese woman earlier. If I had, I would have married a Vietnamese," said Kim, who divorced his first wife, a South Korean, in 2002. "Hong is six months [...]
[2007-05-14] People consider marriage as a way to turn around their fortunes
Two years after volunteering for the Sister Guo's Matchmaking Center in Dalian of Northeast China's Liaoning Province, 59-year-old Zhao Wu wonders if what she does really helps people. In her experience, many people consider marriage as a way to turn around their fortunes. She believes they attach too much importance on their financial situation, age, and looks, rather than mutual feelings. A survey conducted by China News Service recently confirmed her feelings, showing that 60 percent of people hope to change their destiny by walking down the aisle. According to Guo Lianrong, the founder [...]

[2007-05-14] As Russia readies for its first, post-Yeltsin presidential election, Yeltsin biographer Leon Aron offers thoughts on the Russian leader's legacy.
Two days before Boris Yeltsin resigned on December 31, a retired captain in the Russian navy, Alexander Nikitin, was acquitted of espionage in a St. Petersburg courtroom and released from custody. Nikitin's alleged crime was passing information about Russian nuclear submarines to a Norwegian environmental group. The judge ruled that the suit had been brought under an ex post facto law in "direct violation of the constitution." As far as anyone, including Nikitin's lawyers, can gather, this is the first time in Russian history that the secret police — the FSB, successor to the KGB — has been [...]

[2007-05-09] Most important qualities that you should focus on writing a personal ad that gets noticed.
I. Describe yourself – Describe yourself fully and specifically. This is easier said than done. Sit and analyze yourself and understand who you really are. Specifically describe your personality. Are you outgoing? Serious or adventurous. II. Describe what you expect - Now that you described who you are, the next step is what are you expectations. Don’t waste time trying to be elaborate stuffs. Cut through the clutter with clear expectations and don’t be too narrow minded either. But as a general rule in psychology, “likeness or sameness attracts”. III. Start writing your personals ads – No [...]
[2007-05-09] Muslim women enduring domestic abuse in US

[2007-05-09] Let the couples have their time alone
If you were in a relationship, you wouldn't want a friend tagging along with you all the time either. It gets irritating for them, so give the couples their space. Make new friends. Mix and mingle with other single people. Being around couples too much will just make you feel bad about the fact that you don't have a partner. Don't take sides when couples are fighting unless you know both sides of the story. Even then, try and stay out of the fight. While the couple may eventually settle the problems between each other, they might still remember who you sided with during their conflict. Don't f [...]

[2007-05-08] More than half the 500 single women polled said a sense of humour was the most important thing they looked for in a date.
WOMEN would rather date Phoenix Nights star Peter Kay than Brad Pitt because it is humour not looks that is most likely to win their heart, it's claimed. The roly poly comic who starred as nightclub owner Brian Potter, above, in the series, was voted the top date among 500 customers of leading dating agency Match.com. Brad Pitt, despite his obvious physical advantages over the Bolton funnyman, was second in the poll, followed by George Clooney and ladies' man David Walliams. More than half the 500 single women polled said a sense of humour was the most important thing they looked for in a [...]
[2007-05-07] Many people over 50 who become single are a bit naive and gullible. That is understandable -- some haven't had a date with anyone other than their spouse in 30 or 40 years.
Sadly, some fall into unfortunate situations that had they known about beforehand, could have been avoided. As an older single, you need to protect four things when dating again. -- First, protect your heart. Perhaps you are lonely and desperately want companionship. You miss sharing and feel empty. You're vulnerable and can easily let your guard down. One widow who considers herself to be intelligent, street-smart, well educated and grounded became involved with a "wonderful" man. He filled the big, empty space in her life. But a telephone call from the man's aunt revealed a dark side. He w [...]
[2007-05-07] IN TAIWAN, some men choose brides from the comfort of their living rooms by watching a TV show
The women are willing to marry men sometimes decades older than themselves to exchange a life of poverty at home for relative affluence abroad. These couples often don't live happily ever after. Vietnam native Nguyen Chi, 28, was kicked out by the husband she married five years ago and now scrapes by working at an electronics factory in Taipei. Ten of her 20 Vietnamese colleagues have also been dumped by their Taiwan husbands. "We've all got the same problem. We're divorced or our husbands don't want us, and some of us are raising kids," said Nguyen, speaking in Mandarin learned during f [...]
[2007-05-07] Increasing numbers of non-Cuban Hispanic immigrants are marrying Cuban immigrants, which speeds delivery of green cards for the non-Cubans.
Either by chance or by design, a growing number of Venezuelans -- more than 2,000 since 2002 -- are marrying Cuban refugees on the fast track for green cards, and drawing scrutiny from U.S. immigration officials. The escalation coincides with Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez's increasing ties to Cuba's Fidel Castro, which have prompted thousands of Venezuelans to flee and then overstay their visas in the United States. In South Florida, attorneys say marriages between Cuban refugees and Venezuelan immigrants top the list of non-Cubans marrying Cubans, followed by Colombians and Mexicans. [...]
[2007-05-07] Men in Contemporary Russia: The Fallen Heroes of Post-Soviet Change?
Life in the Stalinist Soviet Union was never pleasant but is there any evidence that capitalism is better? Rebecca Kay’s careful sociological survey of men in post-Soviet Russia shows that seen both objectively and subjectively capitalism has brought an assault on civilisation there. In the mid-1980s male life expectancy in the USSR was 63.8 years. By 2000 it was down to 59. Research shows that the increased mortality rates are due primarily to deaths in the young to middle-aged population. Female life expectancy is also shorter by two years. Cardiovascular diseases are the biggest killers, es [...]
[2007-05-07] Manatee County agencies teaching relationship skills
No one starts a relationship to end up unhappy. Yet people who once loved each other - and may still love each other - argue, fight, split up or divorce. To help couples and teens, Family Resources Inc. is offering six-week courses for people who want to learn skills to better communicate and keep the fun in their relationships. The programs, modeled on the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program, or PREP, are supported by the federal government.

[2007-05-07] Single life has its charms and freedoms, but adults who never marry may not live as long as their wedded peers
While the protective effect of marriage on health and longevity has been pointed out before, newer research is zeroing in on the never-married folks. Staying single all your life may not be good for your health or your lifespan, according to researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles. The team looked at the 1997 U.S. National Death Index and the 1989 National Health Interview Survey. In 1989, almost half of the survey sample was married; about 10 percent widowed; 12 percent divorced; 3 percent separated; 5 percent living with someone; and 20 percent had never married. Compared [...]
[2007-05-05] THE number of single mothers and divorcees in Saudi Arabia is growing and so are the problems that they have to face.
The traditional extended family structure is breaking down and many single women complain that the authorities do not provide them with welfare on trivial grounds forcing them to continue living miserable lives. This leads many to turn to begging. A missing document or a lazy ex-husband who failed to register the births of his children is enough to prompt government officials to turn down applications for welfare. One such case is that of a Saudi mother, who is divorced with nine children, the eldest of which is 22 and the youngest is only five years old. The mother, who wanted not to be [...]
[2007-05-05] Likening older woman to "culled ewes" is probably not the best way to woo a potential wife
The Rotorua sheep, deer and goat farmer feels ripped off after belonging to a Hamilton dating agency for a year and not meeting anyone. But the owner of the agency said Mr Fleming was "rude and obnoxious" and she struck him off her books. The 46-year-old admits he's found it hard to find his perfect woman and thought he'd try his luck with women in the Waikato. But after a year of belonging to Adventure Date – without getting a date – he began to feel "conned" and demanded his money back. He paid $190 for a two-year membership. "I was told (by organiser Liz Heart) that mostly rural and [...]
[2007-05-05] The South Korean government is mapping out policies to ward off rampant clandestine marriage brokerage services that sell poor foreign women, including Vietnamese, to Korean men.
The Republic of Korea (RoK) Embassy to Vietnam said Friday its government is working with 13 agencies to deploy action programs to help foreign women have a better life in RoK. Measures include a draft law on reining in shady foreign marriage brokerage services to foil illegal matchmaking where women are exchanged for money. Under the draft law, only licensed foreign marriage services will be deemed eligible for operation in RoK. Earlier, these unlicensed services only needed to report their operation to relevant authorities. Beginning in 2008, RoK will deploy a scheme under which foreign [...]
[2007-05-05] Sometimes online dating is confusing
When we are left to our own devices, things can get ugly -- and I'm not talking about the blind date you met online. But there's strength in numbers. So let's band together (with me as your guide) and talk about the hilarity and insanity that is the Baltimore dating scene.As a single, sometimes hapless 24-year-old, I don't claim to be an expert. But I am a good listener and I have some relationship gurus on speed dial.And this being 2007, I'm not just a columnist, I'm also a blogger (baltimoresun.com/baltamour). This week, my online readers have already started the conversation, weighing in on [...]
[2007-05-05] The founder of a Christian speed-dating company is teaming up with a large Protestant church to help local singles avoid the pitfalls of dating.
Pastor Rob Chartrand says Beulah Alliance Church in Edmonton is excited about hosting the one-day conference, called Boundaries in Dating. Admission to the May 19 conference is just $5. "Singles matter to God, and we want to do what we can to help them," said Chartrand, whose west-end church typically draws 2,200 people at its three weekend worship services. "We do a premarital course, and so we thought, 'Boy, it would be great if we can do a conference on dating as well because we have so many singles in our congregation.'" One of those singles is Tina Woytuck, 29, who last year started Ed [...]
[2007-05-05] In Taiwan, some men choose brides from the comfort of their living rooms by watching a TV show that airs photographs and biographical details of Vietnamese women looking for husbands.
The women are willing to marry men sometimes decades older than themselves to exchange a life of poverty at home for relative affluence abroad. These couples often don't live happily ever after. Vietnam native Nguyen Chi, 28, was kicked out by the husband she married five years ago and now scrapes by working at an electronics factory in Taipei.

The chain has recruited 26 single men and women looking for dates to pose wearing bras, panties and other lingerie for television commercials.
