Hope for the Single

This article shows why none of you who are still single and looking should lose hope. No matter how esoteric or varied your tastes, there's someone out there for you, apparently. The trick is NOT to go out looking, but to sit back, relax and let them come to you.

Apparently someone called the "superdaters." If they wear their underpants on the outside it's no wonder they don't get a lot of second dates.

I'm just quoting the article, which in turn quoted a study. The thing is that it's not the number of interests you have, apparently. You can have a zillion interests and be just as successful at finding a relationship as someone who's obsessed with just cheese. Although keeping it is another thing!

Oh, I know you were only quoting. I guess it was kind of a rhetorical questions. Still, it's worth thinking about. 'Cause sometimes, you DO have to look, or at least look around :-)

i like to think of it as the same sort of plan most people have for what to do when you get lost. if you wander around then you're very likely to miss the person who's looking for you. if you stay put somewhere where that person is likely to look, you increase your chances of being found. of course if you both decide to sit down and wait, that's where you get into trouble...

Perhaps it's more of ... do the things you enjoy, some of which hopefully involve other people, and don't focus on looking ... then someone may come around.

*beating down the cynic in me and staying quiet otherwise* ;)

funny, though. I had the exact same "rhetorical question."

and now to go out to be social.
