    Amputee Woman Fields 12 Marriage Proposals After Listing Herself as 'Arms Dealer' on Tinder Posted: 5:08 PM, August 16, 2017 Updated: 5:08 PM, August 16, 2017 A San Diego woman's humor about her missing arm on her dating profile has led her to become a Tinder sensation. Lauren, 21, lost her left arm in a moped accident a year ago, but that hasn't stopped her from creating a profile that puts her amputation on full display, along with this cheeky bio. On her Tinder profile, she jokingly wrote she's “hands down the best catch on Tinder.” She also stated that...

    The sex was hot, and it was uncomplicated in the sense that neither of us expected—or even really wanted—any strings attached. And since I was confident in my political convictions, all that witty banter about tax codes, emails, and border walls was the foreplay I never knew I needed.

    PARIS - A 50-year-old French author is under fire on social media for saying he couldn’t love a woman his own age. According to USA Today, BBC News and other outlets, Yann Moix made the controversial comments in a recent interview with Marie Claire France. "I'm telling you the truth," the TV host and "Rompre (Breaking Up)" writer said in French. "At 50 years old, I am incapable of loving a 50-year-old woman." When asked to explain, he said: "I find that too old. When I'm 60 years old, I'll be able to do it. Then 50 years old will...

    A Phoenix woman reportedly sent a man she met on a dating website more than 159,000 texts – including one stating that she wanted to turn his kidneys into sushi. According to police documents obtained by the Arizona Republic, Jacqueline Ades allegedly sent the man the messages over the span of nearly 10 months. She had originally been accused of sending him more than 65,000 text messages but the number was reportedly more than double that. The arrest records listed the woman as “showing signs of mental illness,” the newspaper reported. Ades reportedly met the victim, a Paradise Valley man...

    Spark Networks Inc., owner of ChristianMingle.com, LDSSingles.com and other faith-based dating websites, will make its services more LGBT-friendly after settling a discrimination lawsuit filed by two gay men. The dating sites previously “required new users to specify whether they’re a man seeking a woman or a woman seeking a man,” The Wall Street Journal reported. Now, people will simply sign-up as a male or female. Additionally, “Spark Networks agreed that within two years, it would adjust other searching and profile features to give gay and lesbian singles a more tailored experience,” the article noted. The lawsuit focused on a California...

    We have reached a new height of dating-app fatigue: Even the online matchmakers have given up on finding you a soul mate. It's not that you're hopeless. You're wonderful! You're a unique snowflake - so unique, in fact, that you should keep swiping and stay single as long as possible. If you've seen ads for OkCupid or Tinder recently, you might notice something conspicuous: There's little mention of love or partnership. Instead of trying to convince users that their perfect match is just a click or a swipe or a wink away, OkCupid and Tinder are touting the joy of...

Effeminate men are men too! Why aren’t we more attracted to soyboys who Uber everywhere in their jorts? The “starving artist” types are JUST AS MANLY, with their stubby manbuns and inability to pay for dinner. THIS IS SO CONFUSING! What is our DEAL, ladies?!

    Precopia had no clue why he was being arrested or what he was accused of, but he later found out his ex-girlfriend from high school had gone to the cops with a fabricated tale. The accuser said Precopia broke into her home in Temple and sliced an X into her chest with a box cutter. Her identity is not being made public because she is not being charged with a crime. She would later admit to Temple police that she reported Precopia because she had a rocky relationship with him several years earlier. On the night of the alleged attack,...

    The popular US dating site eHarmony is now owned by Munich-based broadcaster ProSieben. Although it is primarily known for its TV franchise, ProSieben also owns one of Germany’s largest dating companies. German media company ProSiebenSat.1 purchased the matchmaking site eHarmony in the company’s first major e-commerce deal since launching a joint venture with investment firm General Atlantic. The Munich-based broadcaster announced the takeover on Monday, with ProSieben CEO Max Conze calling the deal “an excellent fit.” ProSieben already owns German online dating giant Parship. Like eHarmony, Parship uses an algorithm to suggest matches for people from its database. Users also...

    For many years people have asked whether I still agree with my book I Kissed Dating Goodbye. In addition to this question, some readers have told me the book harmed them. Two years ago I began a process of re-evaluating the book. This included inviting people to share their stories with me on my website, personal phone calls with readers, an in-depth study of issues surrounding my book overseen by one of my graduate school professors, and finally, creating a documentary film that captured the conversations with people who were reshaping my thinking. For me, it’s been important for this...

    A study conducted by Cornell University and University of Washington professors and researchers concludes that filters used in dating apps reinforce societally influenced biases and division. Cornell professors Solon Barocas and Karen Levy, Cornell research initiative coordinator Jessie Taft, and UW law scholar Jevan Hutson established theories surrounding "queer and social justice" as it pertains to human-computer interaction (HCI). They did so in order to analyze the ways in which race, gender, and disability filters on dating apps, or "intimate platforms," reinforce stereotypes, biases, and social divisions.

    Sinakhone Keodara reached his breaking point last July. Loading up Grindr, the gay dating app that presents users with potential mates in close geographical proximity to them, the founder of a Los Angeles-based Asian television streaming service came across the profile of an elderly white man. He struck up a conversation, and received a three-word response: “Asian, ew gross.” He is now considering suing Grindr for racial discrimination. For black and ethnic minority singletons, dipping a toe into the water of dating apps can involve subjecting yourself to racist abuse and crass intolerance. “Over the years I’ve had some pretty...

    Dating applications can allow users to fall into their own racial biases while searching for a partner, a new study says. But in their study, researchers from schools like Cornell University say the “sexual racism” that plagues apps like Grindr, Tinder and Bumble can be stamped out with a few simple changes. The end goal, the study says, is to promote more diverse pairings on the dating sites. Jevan Hutson, lead author of the study, said in a press release from Cornell University that “it’s really an unprecedented time for dating and meeting online” — which requires a more thorough...

    If you haven’t watched “Nanette,” Hannah Gadsby’s fearless comedy special on Netflix, do that now. (We’ll wait.) In it, Ms. Gadsby takes on the fragility of masculinity — and at one point drills into Pablo Picasso, who, well into his 40s, had an affair with a teenage girl. Ms. Gadsby, who has a degree in art history, recounted how Picasso justified the relationship by claiming that he and the girl, Marie-Thérčse Walter, were both in their prime. Seething, Ms. Gadsby said: “A 17-year-old girl is never in her prime. Ever! I am in my prime.” She is 40.

    Trying to find love in D.C. can be tricky. If you’re a young Trump administration staffer, it might be near impossible. GOP employees and other right-wingers have been complaining that dating in one of the most Democratic cities in America is a political minefield. They’ve been called out, flipped off and told they are personally responsible for the death of democracy. One 29-year-old lobbyist told Fox News that learning to date in a Trump world is “absolutely insane.” “It’s getting so bad,” the lobbyist, who asked to remain anonymous because she works with the administration, said.

    In May, Jack Peterson went on a Tinder date. With a woman. They ate at an Italian restaurant in downtown Chicago, and made casual chitchat about themselves. It was an ordinary date in every way. But for 19-year-old Peterson, it was an achievement of epic proportions. Until recently, Peterson identified as an “incel,” or involuntarily celibate. Incels believe that, due to reasons entirely beyond their control ― too short, too bald, too weak a jawline ― they cannot attract a female partner. They believe they’re doomed to remain alone, forever. For many incels, this fatalistic worldview is paired with a...
