Divorce, rebound dating, and stupid newspaper articles.

masshysteria reflects on the pros and cons of reading articles by idiots:

so you know how i just said, like a couple hours ago, that i want to not be in so many trainwreck-dating situations? well, i was bored and decided to read an article that popped up online about how to not be depressed if you break up with somebody, and one of the pointers it gave you was to start dating people. here is a quote that is fabulous:

"The average marriage now lasts less than seven years, and this means new singles are coming on the scene all the time. Around 16 million people are now using online dating. You don’t need to worry about getting into a troublesome rebound relationship: New research shows that people marrying on the rebound are no more likely to fail than those who wait."

i'm sorry... WHAT? you're going to have better luck at dating because other people's marriages are failing? and it's a good idea to get married on the rebound because your marriage will probably fail, but it was going to do that anyway?!!!?

i'm giving more and more thought to just becoming a crazy cat lady at a young age. at least my cats will never leave me to get married on the rebound to someone they met on the internet.


QWP. Entry is flocked, but that's the whole post.
