What do North Dakota and Texas have in common? Perhaps a most commonly typed word on dating profiles…

In the world of online dating, there is a seemingly endless virtual line of potential dates standing outside your virtual door. But sifting through an infinite number of matches can feel like a slog when every profile contains the phrases, “easy going,” “dog lover” and “I like everything except country, lol.”

Mashable asked Match.com to analyze thousands of online dating profiles from the U.S., and to offer insight into the habits and interests of daters in each state. Essentially, they broke down which words are used with relative frequency in certain states, as compared to relative infrequency in the rest of the country. For example, Texas love its “oil,” New York loves a stimulating visit to the “museum,” and Mississippi loves “lookin.”

But though it sometimes seems like every dating profile is the same, there are clear distinctions that separate American daters in each state from one another (Laura Vitto, Mashable).

GIVE ME EVERYTHING YOU AM: “Love Again” by Run The Jewels

The other week, I was having a conversation with a friend of mine who is a new father – we’ll call him Cronus – and we were talking about parental instinct. He lowered his voice conspiratorially, considered the infant in his lap and said, “Sometimes I love my baby so much that I want to eat him. Is that normal?” 

Turns out, it’s not just normal–it’s science! Olfactory chemical signals–the smells of newborn babies have been linked to dopamine spikes in the brains of new mothers, essentially triggering the same neurological reward circuit activated when a very hungry person eats, or when a heroin addict shoots up…

5 Ways to Avoid the Cliff of Contemporary Dating

I have a friend who dates online… a lot. You could say she’s popular. She gets out again and again because she’s fabulous–which is obvious, even through a screen. Yet she arrives each time preloaded with every personal detail about her date–their hometown, full legal name, and family history–often even their annual income and whether or not they rent or own. IT IS RIDICULOUS. The internet is a fantastic tool for writing a thesis, but should it be used to compose a 15-page, pre-introduction memoir on a potential romantic interest’s life story?…
