Here are five facts about online dating: Online dating has lost much of its stigma, and a majority of Americans now say online dating is a good way to meet people.When we first studied online dating habits in 2005, most Americans had little exposure to online dating or to the people who used it, and they tended to view it as a subpar way of meeting people.

A month later, she sent me a friend request and we attempted to pick up where we left off. I had to ask myself, how could someone be so childish as to unfriend someone they've known for decades? The second time I got unfriended it was a double whammy.
Not only did this long-time person unfriend me, but she blocked me as well.
It was hot out and I didn't think it mattered where we sat.
Frankly her behavior was uncalled for and I felt she was acting like an immature brat. As one who takes the high road, I called to apologize for upsetting her, cried on the phone, asked her why she'd do such a thing, and begged her to reconsider friending me again. It was the beginning of the end of our friendship, as a few years later I was not invited to her son's engagement party, the wedding shower, or the wedding festivities which were posted all over Facebook. I got moved to the B list after the first unfriending episode and I politely changed my Facebook settings on her profile from "friend" to "acquaintance." I realized then, as I should have before, that if a grown adult is going to diss a girlfriend on Facebook and call a power play by unfriending someone over seating at a party, maybe I just didn't want to be friends with this person after all.
