I knew, however, that no aspect of human life was beyond God's reach. I could appeal to Him for help with the anxiousness I was feeling. I realized I needed to trust God more, [...]

[2006-08-03] Couples find a balance for outside friendships, interests
C hris Crytzer loves theater, everything from children's productions to traveling Broadway companies. Her husband, Robert, enjoys watching sports of all kinds on TV and in person.

[2006-08-02] Illinois lawmaker hopes to keep cyber singles honest
You may have heard stories of first dates gone awry when two people meet on the internet and hit it off, but then when they meet face to face, one of them is nothing like the picture perfect partner portrayed online. It may not be too serious a problem if the man or woman lied about their weight, how much hair they have (or don't have) or what they do for a living. But what if they lied about their marital status or criminal record? That's what one Heartland lawmaker is trying to guard against. Stephanie Jordan of Dykersburg has dabbled in on-line dating. "In a sense you get to know some [...]
[2006-08-02] THE DATING GAME
Last semester, Bill Gostic, a junior at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, started hanging out with ''this one girl. It was sort of romantic,'' he said, ''but I told her I didn't want anything serious, just to have fun. And she said, 'Yeah, just for fun.''' Gostic smiled ruefully. One night not long ago, he was clicking around Facebook.com, a social networking Web site popular with college students, and noticed that the girl's profile had changed. The box indicating her relationship status, which used to be checked ''single,'' was suddenly, chillingly blank. He asked her about it; she sa [...]

[2006-08-02] Don't rewrite the rules of online romance
T hey are widows and married millionaires and Yalies. They are Christian nonsmokers and truckers and Republicans. And they all want to date you. Well, maybe not you. But someone you could pretend to be, with a little imagination and a working laptop. Everybody is blond and skinny in cyberspace. And that can be a problem. Just consider the number of marriages ending because one of the parties just met their one true love through Yahoo Personals. As one divorce lawyer recently told Lawyers USA: "A client will come in -- man or woman -- and say there's someone across the country I want to mar [...]
[2006-08-01] Active Tourism Offers The Ability to View Russia From A New Angle
If you ask a glamorous suntanned lady with a big suitcase returning to Sheremetyevo airport from Sharm-el-Sheikh and a bearded guy in dirty hiking boots sitting next to an enormous backpack outside the Kursk train station whether they consider themselves tourists, there is a high probability that both would answer in the affirmative. But there is an equally reasonable chance that the two would have different ideas about the concept which, in a broader sense, represents diverse lifestyles. For many of its adherents in Russia, self-organized tourism is a sort of a lifestyle and a set of values, [...]

[2006-08-01] Shades of change felt across U.S.
After years of battles over immigration, affirmative action, racial profiling and other issues, it appears that the United States is becoming a genuine melting pot. An interracial tide has transformed friendships, dating, cohabitations, marriages and adoptions in just one generation. If the wave continues, it could begin to erode racial stereotypes and categories, as well as the rationale behind affirmative action and other broad protections for minorities. The average American today, young or old, is 70 percent more likely than a generation ago to count a person of another race among his [...]
[2006-08-01] 'Dating' game at work is very dangerous
By Marie G. McIntyre By Marie G. McIntyre, Ph.D. McClatchy-Tribune News Service Q: I have been "dating" a guy at work for about three years. We are both married, so of course everyone gossips about us. The problem is he is very popular with other co-workers, and I don't feel I get as much attention from him as I used to. He says he cares about me and doesn't want to end the relationship, but I don't know what to do. When I try to put some distance between us, he just acts like it doesn't matter and it makes me crazy. Should I break it off? Lonely at Work A: For starters, let's be honest. [...]
[2006-08-01] Some computer dating sites are organizing -- gasp! -- live events
A handful of online dating services -- once the go-to places for finding that significant other -- are realizing that the best way to meet is by actually -- meeting. At last count there were 26 million people searching the Web for love, like or lust. But nowadays more social networking websites are determined to get their subscribers to log out and get out. Of the house, that is. ''We use the Internet to get people off the Internet,'' says Myles Weissleder, vice president of public affairs for Meetup.com, an online social networking service that boasts a membership of more than two million.

[2006-08-01] $5 million in goods stolen from Hermitage
Russia's famed State Hermitage Museum on Monday reported the theft of more than 220 works, including jewelry and enameled objects, worth around $5 million, an incident that highlighted the poor security at Russian cultural institutions.

[2006-08-01] The 10 plagues of dating
The world of dating is like a terrifying battlefield in which there are two types of women: Some are dating champions, who can get any guy they want, make an excellent first impression and get marriage proposals on the first date. Then there are those who never stop making faux pas, terrifying even themselves and returning home just as they left – desperate and alone. This is natural genetics, or in some cases, as I've learned the hard way, acquired skills. My bitter dating experience began in eighth grade with my first informal date. My mother’s looks stayed with the frightened Yoni until [...]

More than a decade after the Internet became a dating hot spot, the debate over what is real and what is snake oil is at full boil, with lawmakers and Web sites clashing over legislative proposals to keep clients from being scammed."You guys can either be part of the solution or feel like you're victims of someone taking over your business," Florida state Rep. Kevin Ambler told industry insiders at a conference in San Francisco this month. "But this is going to come ... like a freight train roaring down the track." New York already has passed a consumer statute to regulate dating sites. A hal [...]
[2006-08-01] True Confessions of an Online Dater
I decided to try out online dating a couple years ago when I felt like I was not meeting the right person in everyday life. At the time, the whole online thing was suddenly becoming popular, and I figured I had nothing to lose. I first checked out some of the more mainstream online services, but they just seemed too random, and most of the profiles did not appeal to me. A friend suggested a well-known Jewish dating service. This made more sense to me – it seemed reasonable that someone with a common ethnic and cultural background may have a better chance of working out than someone through a [...]
