[2006-09-04] Woman sues agency over lousy dates
GLOUCESTER, England, Aug. 22 (UPI) -- A woman in Gloucester, England, is suing a dating agency for sending her on eight dates with men who were the exact opposite of what she requested. Janet Forse, 49, is suing the New Horizons agency, run by Mike Lavender, a former car salesman, the Daily Mail reported. Forse told the newspaper she specifically told Lavender in January she wanted a rugged professional man who owned his own home and did not smoke. She then paid him $470 for a year's membership. So far, he's sent her out with a chain-smoking truck driver who lived in a trailer, a nervous [...]
[2006-09-04] Why you'll never stop affairs at work
Suddenly I have something in common with Angelina Jolie. Sadly, it's not Brad Pitt. And, if you passed me in the street, you'd be unlikely to mistake me for Lara Croft. What I and thousands of other women (including Angelina's nemesis, Jennifer Aniston) share with Ms Jolie is that we met our partners at work. In Jolie's case, it was on the film set of Mr And Mrs Smith; in mine, it was — rather less glamorously — in a lift in a rundown building, just off London's Oxford Street. Neither of us was very good at keeping our relationship secret. While Angelina and Brad's first date made the ta [...]

[2006-09-04] The professional approach to a labour of love
Many people find romance at work, and employers' attempts to prevent Cupid from working his magic, haven't got a chance, says Sheena Hastings. WHILE Joe worked in a distant branch office of his company, it didn't bother anyone that he was dating one of the most senior executives in the division.The trouble started when he transferred into the same building as his girlfriend – and was instantly promoted.Where workplace romance is concerned, gossip will flourish. Before anyone had sized up Joe's true capabilities, the word got around that this had been a nepotistic promotion. While the couple m [...]

[2006-09-04] Internet searches are giving away all of your secrets
YOU probably weren't aware of it, but there's a spy in your living room and workplace. This spy knows a heck of a lot about you, even your most intimate thoughts. Here's an example. In March this year, a Portuguese- American, living in Florida, was drinking heavily because his wife was having an affair. He typed his troubles into the search window of his computer. "My wife doesn't love anymore," he told his PC. He searched for "Stop your divorce" before turning to "alcohol withdrawal" and "dysfunctional erection".

They're engaged to be married. But Elke Wilkerson -- she's "xxGreatCatch4Uxx"-- and Mitch Yow have never met. At least, not in person.

[2006-09-04] Online Match-Making with Virtual Dates
Literally millions of people have found dates through online match-making services, so who says the Internet is isolating? The problem for many users, however, is that initial matches are often imperfect—even frustrating—because the services may shoot Cupid's arrow in the wrong direction. "The current model is artificial and static, and far removed from everyday social interaction," says Jeana H. Frost, who along with Michael I. Norton and Dan Ariely is taking an academic look at online dating and how it can be improved. They describe their results in a new HBS working paper, "Improving Onlin [...]

So, you've signed up to a couple of dating sites and have actually found a few people you'd like to get to know better... maybe even date. What do you do now?

[2006-09-04] Are we seeing the slow death of mass-market online dating sites?
Bambi Francisco at MarketWatch asks why dating sites are still charging when social networking sites like Myspace offer free access to multitudes of singles. She asks why would a consumer bother paying to be in front of Match's 15 million members around the world when they can find more than 100 million on MySpace, and even more on YouTube? Yes, I know the paid sites provide some vetting and qualifying, and they cost about $1 a day. But there are no hard statistics on the success ratio of transactions, such as lasting relationships, let alone marriages. And, even Spark Network CEO David Si [...]

[2006-09-04] Fly-by-night sites
Signs advertising local online dating services have cropped up on utility poles in busy traffic locations, but experts say the sites may be little more than an invitation to telemarketers and spam e-mail. Recently tacked up to poles on Rte. 126 in Bellingham, just north of the intersection with Interstate 495, a set of signs all read: "Single?" below which they provide the Web address bellinghamsingles.org. But online dating expert Evan Marc Katz said he believes the site -- and its mirror image, milfordsingles.org -- may simply be fronts to snag e-mail, telephone numbers and o [...]
[2006-09-04] High-tech infidelity
Call it crazy, paranoid or cynical, but the next time you peruse the personals on Craigslist or scan profiles on MySpace, consider this: There's a good chance you just ran into a cheater. Just as purchasing concert tickets or checking baseball scores has become as simple as logging onto a computer, infidelity is a simple keystroke away. Cheating is on the rise because technology eases the search to find a willing partner, according to therapists, researchers and relationship experts.
