Singles in America Match

This weekend I hung out with Match.com and took a look at their Singles in America study with data from Dr. Helen Fisher. There was a lot of interesting information about how single people operate these days. Here are some of the facts that surprised me:

  • 45% of people had a friends with benefits relationship turn into a long-term partnership Dr. Helen Fisher says that “Friends with Benefits” is emerging as the new pre-relationship status. Maybe that’s the true definition of  ”Its Complicated” on facebook! I’m not a big promoter of the whole FWB situation if you really want more from the person than the physical, but apparently its working for someone!
  • 40% of people have fallen in love with someone they weren’t initially attracted to I found this to be fascinating as a Plus Size Princess because it might explain all the guys I’ve dated who never dated a PSP before. Some men are drawn to big women exclusively, some men would “never date a fat chick”… then there are those men who are attracted to all different types of women, depending on chemistry. We spend so much time as PSPs worrying that our looks take us out of the game, maybe it doesn’t matter as much as we think.
  • 42% of men have shared the sext they received from a partner with others think twice before you hit send, there’s a good chance his friends will end up seeing your goodies!

What about you guys:

Ever had a friend with benefits turn into a boyfriend?

Ever fallen for someone who wasn’t ”your type”?

(and if you care to share) Ever had a sext end up in the wrong hands?

    AHH yes, my former FWB is now my boyfriend (but we were physically and emotionally attracted to each other at the start, just neither of us wanted a relationship then) Most guys I fall for aren’t my physical type.

    oh yes fhe guy that I am madly in love with now and have been for many years now was originally someone that i wished i never gave my number to. He I wasn’t physically or emotionally attracted to him at all.

    my hubby of nearly 10 years was the exactly the opposite ‘type’ i usually went for – i was totally attracted to the prep type of man. hubby (at the time) had long hair and tattoos and was a very casual dresser. but OMG when we met in person the first time (as we met online initially) the chemistry was through the roof – he was just – IT – the one. i knew it. our first kiss was like all the planets aligned and fireworks went off. i actually got dizzy. LOL. what a lovely memory. but yes he was not my “type” at the time but he was the ONE.
