Just when you think the world is full of love and sunshine and rainbows, yet another study comes along and smacks you in the face to prove otherwise. Turns out that a lot of men don't enter into commitments like marriage out of a genuine bond toward a woman — they seem to do it just because. Let's explore, shall we?
Online dating is a lot like a job in sales. Only rather than convincing potential customers to purchase a product, you're persuading them to invest their time in getting to know you. The reward? A few dates and, if you're lucky, a serious relationship.
In promotion for their upcoming "Up All Night" event (it's free!), Chemistry.com did some investigating into which cities are more likely to have singles prowling the streets looking for love between midnight and 6 a.m. Although most people would think New York City would make number one on the list, it didn't even make it into the top 10 — although (no...sleep...'til) Brooklyn did!
Whether you're considering online dating for the first time or you've done it before without much success, you've come to the right place. When it comes to online dating, selecting the right site can make all the difference in the world. But with so many sites to choose from, who has time to sort through them all? Fortunately, our experts have done the heavy lifting for you.
With the extreme sexualization of pretty much everything in our culture — from toddlers in beauty pageants to commercials about eating salad — I'd think it's safe to assume that America cares about sex.
Do you keep meeting disappointing men? The ones who seem so promising at first, but then end up never calling you, or worse — promising you the world and then breaking your heart? A recent Chemistry.com poll says it may be because you're living in the wrong city.

First impressions aren't everything, you know. You may come home from a date with a wonderful guy, who seems like he's got everything together—promising career, steady income, nice apartment, calls the next day, everything that makes you swoon. But the detail-oriented men (and women) of the world may be tucking a dirty little secret into their drawers; their sock drawers, that is.
It's no big secret that the hot and heavy lust of a new relationship almost always fades to a cooler, slower version of itself as our couplehood progresses. But before you worry that all long-term relationships mean chaste, sexless companionship, a new YourTango survey, conducted with MSN's Glo.com and Chemistry.com, leads us to believe otherwise. In a survey about the nature of attraction, 90 percent of our more than 20,000 respondents said that it is possible to reignite attraction in a relationship. Of course, there are some great ways to do this and some not-so-great ways to bring the spark back. According to the survey respondents, here are the five worst ways to reignite attraction in a relationship:
YourTango, along with Glo.com and Chemistry.com, conducted a massive survey of more than 20,000 men and women on one simple, yet essential, topic: the power of attraction. We found that even if a couple's heat index waxes and wanes over time, 90 percent believe it can be rekindled long-term. And as for that age-old stigma about complacency in our comfortable relationships? Guys cited "lack of romantic love" as the single greatest turn-off as they age. So, it's more important than we all thought.
Anthropologist Helen Fisher, author of Why Him? Why Her?: Finding Real Love by Understanding Your Personality Type, says that understanding your personality type can help you navigate the dating waters. Using genetics and neurochemistry Fisher identified four types: about Explorer, Builder, Negotiator and Director. Which are you?
Your single self may be a product of nurture and nature, but your relationships are a product of compatibility and chemistry, or so says Chemistry.com, Match.com's sister online dating site. Chemistry.com differs from its sibling site since it targets singles who are serious about finding long and meaningful relationships. Chemistry.com uses extensive personality profiling to access the personality type of its users and hand-select compatible matches. The fancy-schmancy personality profiling is based upon the work of Chemistry.com's very own biological anthropologist and expert on human attraction, Dr. Helen Fisher. The Chemistry.com profile consists of 100-plus statements such as "People should behave according to established standards of proper conduct," and "I feel emotions more deeply than most people." Chemistry.com users choose from four responses on a scale of strongly disagree to strongly agree.
Office romance is on the rise— today, 47 percent of American professionals say they've dated within the workplace—and, say experts, it's also the latest, greatest place to meet a mate. But the changing landscape brings both increased perks and perils. While some companies see it as a way to positively affect work-life balance others are leery. There are a few things to know about before turning a work spouse into a real spouse or at least romantic partner.
Online dating sites eHarmony and Chemistry.com are in a lover's quarrel writ large. The sticking point: Should a site be allowed to outlaw would-be members? Anyone who's tried online dating knows that sooner or later, they'll probably be rejected—by a potential suitor. Yet over one million would-be daters have been blocked from joining online dating site eHarmony. Now rival dating site Chemistry.com is capitalizing on the site's rejection policy, with a 10 million dollar ad campaign calling attention to the fact, and positioning itself as a welcoming, come-one-date-all alternative.
