More than 500 people responded to recent online ads selling both a home and the affection of its current owner, a single mother of two teens eager to turn over her deed and her heart. When traditional means of finding love such as online dating and scoping night clubs came up dry, the Associated Press reports that one South Florida woman decided to use the next logical forum. No, she doesn't have her own reality TV show or a YouTube following. Yet.

I'm so naive...I thought Alanis would play a song. Instead, I cringed through this smarmy "Alanis Morrisette Discusses Her Lesbian Days With Howard Stern" clip on Gawker. Howard hammers on about Alanis' hookups with women and tries to box her into easy-for-straight-folks-to-understand stereotypes, like when he asks, "What type of women were you attracted to?

Based on a recent speed dating experience, graciously sponsored by New York Easy Dates, I came up with the following list of tips for what to do and what not to do to make the most of one's time in the unique world of forced encounters on the clock.
We're not sure if Virginia Beach resident and bride-to-be Kelly Gray could find a final gal pal to complete the bridal party or she was just looking to make some extra cash, but she put a bridesmaid spot in her upcoming wedding on eBay, according to The New York Times.
