It was a great marriage for 10 years. Never even considered what happened a possibility. About 2 years ago the sex life got real shitty then on March 18th 2009 I discover about $2 grand worth of meth in my house and I exploded on her, destroyed the meth and she tells me she wants a divorce. So we move out of the house and she takes the kids. Now at this point I'm in a catch 22. I cant prove she's on meth because i destroyed the evidence but at the same time if I would have called the cops they would have arrested us both and took the kids away. So knowing what I know about meth I just kept quiet and waited for her to hang herself. Meth addicts are so predictable. 6 moths later Alabama Drug Task force raided her house and hauled her away. So now the kids live safely with me and life goes on. If anyone ever thinks their loved one is on Meth the symptoms are just about uniform. Inability to tell the truth about anything. Continuously talking and absolutely will not shut the fuck up, they are broke all the time (if its your wife you may wonder where all your hard earned money is going) when confronted they get real defensive, paranoid and bi polar. So if you ever feel the need to choke the ever living shit out of your significant other, have them pee in a cup first.

I am surprised AFF worked. I thought it would be all dudes on there.

When I was single I met chicks from myspace, okcupid, match and craigslist.

Has anyone head of ashleymadison.com ? It for people looking to cheat - LOL.

OkCupid also did a breakdown of data for the two big pay dating sites. It's mostly based on the advertising data that they provide and the picture that can be gotten from that still makes the pay sites look like a big waste of money.

I love the analysis they do. Their assumption that all of the single people are "single and looking" is weak though. A lot of the people who are "single" but not subscribing are in relationships but not married, so demonstrating that they marry more often than subscribers doesn't say much.

A more useful metric would be to see how many of new marriages met on a dating site, and how many didn't and then ratio that out with total subscribers & total population. That would actually require a non-OkCupid survey though, which would cost money.

The analysis also bases all of the percentages on the highest possible number of subscribers, which makes the percentages look worse than they really are. The article describes it as charity to assume that they have more users, but then turns that large user base against them by putting it into the denominator of most of the calculations.

I still really like OkCupid though. I've never tried a pay site and probably wouldn't even if I were single.

Didn't see your reply until now, Mish. While I'm not sure, my guess would be that their "single and looking" criteria is based on someone selecting both single and looking for long/short term relationships. In my case, my profile currently says I'm single and looking for friends, so I would guess I would be excluded from the "single and looking"group.

Also, although I'm not including a link because this is from my Droid, check out their latest trend. It compares Gays to Straights and was inspired by douche bag politicians who use homophobia as a wedge issue.

It helps to get inside the body of a gay man when making this type of analysis.

Funny update is that Adam has been dating a girl for about a year now that he met on OKCupid.

Their blog is fantastic. I think it has to be taken with a certain grain of salt considering they can only pull from their users, and that in itself is a certain bias that can't be blanketed across the US(Or the world), but it's still always a good read.
