Any veteran of online dating knows that there are some really, really bad profiles out there. Either people say something incredibly trite and use the terms "hard-working," "fun-loving" and "family-oriented" like they have any meaning left; or they write an incredibly serious autobiography starting with what position their parents were in on the evening of their conception to the names they have picked out for their future kids. Either way, unless the photo is outstanding, you're going to get skipped. OkCupid is sponsoring a contest to find the best online dating profile out there.

Online dating is haaaaaaaaard. But new research suggests that if you're not having any luck finding love on the Internet, you just aren't using the right words in your profile. Like "zombies" and "atheist"—apparently, just two of the "hot words" for today's single people.
In 2003, after nearly 14 years of marriage, Julie Metz learned that her husband Henry had been cheating on her with multiple women. Shattering to any wife, news of his infidelity hit Metz particularly hard—Henry had passed away six months prior.

In her memoir, "Perfection: A Memoir of Betrayal and Renewal," Metz recounts the aftermath of this revelation and chronicles her path to self-renewal and rediscovery of both love and trust.
