Chances are when your best mate tells you he’s getting married, you will be happy for him and honored that he has chosen you to stand beside him on his special day.

Las Vegas is generally considered to be one of the most exciting cities in the world. Really, what else would it be? Certainly not the most beautiful — neon lights in the desert are not especially appealing. And culture? Frankly, there is none.
But what Sin City does, it does very well — it entertains. It helps us forget about our problems if only for a night. It also achieves a once inconceivable feat by somehow making losing money fun. After all, most of the people who leave Las Vegas go home losers; and still they return. That says a lot about a city that is too hot, too crowded and too expensive for most people to afford.
Even so, Vegas remains the destination of choice for people who are planning special events like stag or hen parties or even spur of the moment wedding ceremonies. Do you know how many wedding chapels are in Las Vegas? Neither do we! But what we do know is that more than 150,000 wedding licences are issued in Vegas each year, which accounts for over 5 per cent of the US total. That is why in any guide to Sin City it is often referred to as the wedding capital of the world. (more...)

Years ago, internet dating was looked down upon by most singles. They considered it the last refuge of the dull and desperate. But these days online dating is all the rage. In fact, nearly one in five married couples meet online. Many online dating sites also claim that these couples have lower divorce rates than people who meet offline.
While we can neither confirm nor deny the previous statement, we do understand it. After all, online senior dating offers many advantages over the traditional blind date. For one thing, these dates don't have to be blind. Members of online dating sites can post pictures and videos if they choose. (more...)
Dating sites have been around since the advent of the internet. However, at the beginning, most single people refused to go anywhere near them. The popular opinion was that they were the last refuge of the dull and desperate. Oh, how times have changed.
According to a recent survey, one in five couples in the UK met on a dating site. What changed? For one thing, single people are having a heck of a time meeting other interesting singles. We know this because the marriage rate in the UK recently fell to a 150 year low. It is also a fact that the average woman in the UK is now 50 percent less likely to marry than her mother. The men don't fare much better.
Is a Facebook date the solution? As you may know, Facebook is the most popular social networking site in the world. And while not officially a dating site, many of the new Facebook apps offered for the iPhone are dating applications. In fact, their most popular dating application, Zoosk, is a perennial bestseller at the App Store. (more...)
If you are looking for an online dating service which one do you pick? Many sites cater to people across the board, of all ages, nationalities and interests so you have to do a fair bit of work to sift through the potential candidates that might interest you. There are however many specialist sites available according to your main interests and this can help you by only introducing people of a like mind.
Some examples spring to mind. There are many sites catering to a specific nationality or religion. So you can choose from sites specifically designed to introduce you to Australians, Greeks, Indians, Hispanics, Christians or Muslims.

But before you sign up at a hot a new dating site like datinginternet.org, there are a few things you should know. Now, we don't want to scare you, but virtual dating isn't always safe. The same anonymity that most members enjoy can be used against you by unscrupulous individuals.

Why is it that many middle aged women who are looking for love are seen as predatory? People assume that it is their last ditched attempt at dating men before sloping off into the twilight world of senior citizenship when people (allegedly!!) have no romantic feelings and want to spend their days knitting and making jam.
As many of you know this is absolute rubbish and women of any age, whether they are fifty or seventy, often want to find a partner for a loving relationship. So why is it that they are prejudiced against?
Well, for a start, any single woman often scares their married friends. People wrongly assume that they are out for their husbands, which most of the time could not be further from the truth. Women need friends of both sexes for mental stimulation and it is sad that old friends often desert them when they are alone. (more...)
