Online Profile Mistakes Single Dads Make

Your Tango Tease Newsletter

Last week, in YourTango tease, my article on 5 Dating Mistakes Single Dads Make was listed in their daily picks.  The article discusses common online dating profile mistakes that single dads may make such as using an old photo or talking about their ex.  It also reminds these wonderful men to get a second opinion before posting their information. With Father’s Day coming up, this could be a helpful article for those who may need some love advice.

Mother’s Day and Single Moms

Today is my “2nd” Mother’s Day and for millions of moms out there, it’s a day of planned activities and appreciation by husbands and children everywhere.  However, in this modern era of  divorced, widowed, estranged, and simply single moms increasing exponentially since the 1950′s (From 1 in 20 to nearly 1 in 3, according to recent records), many mothers spend this day alone.

But, what if the unattached mom finds a new beau and is ready to include them on their special day?  Is this ‘allowed?’  Hmmm.  The answer is not as easy as the question.  There are many factors that go into this.  If you’re a mom and you want to start dating or include your new man this holiday, check out my article: A New Man for Mother’s Day? Give Yourself the Gift of Love Minus the Guilt.

I would like to thank Single Edition for featuring it this weekend.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Twitter Conference: Love in Less than 140?

I loved this article on SingleEdition so much that I couldn’t resist reposting it!  Since Loribizz staff were onsite for the 140 conference, that didn’t hurt our love of this piece either!

Last week thousands of individuals attended a the event at the 92 Second Street Y in New York City. The room was brimming with people and not every one of them was a social media connoisseur, due in part to the eclectic line-up of speakers who covered topics from food and news to yup, you guessed it, love and relationships.  We had the pleasure of listening to Andrea Syrtash, author of He’s Just Not Your Type (and That’s a Good Thing) as well as the CEO of, Tomas Miller. All this talk about dating in less than 140 characters got us thinking: is it possible to find love in twitter time?

If you are wondering where all the good guys are, apparently you can find them on Twitter, where they hold a 56% majority amongst users. And believe it or not, they seem to be becoming better communicators than women, at least in the social media world where, according to a recent survey conducted by Liberty Mutual, they are more likely to tweet on a regular basis than women.

Though 37 year old Alyssa has yet to find Mr. Right, she has created her own intimate dating pool by casting a broad net of followers, people who care about her commentary and brain blurps. “There really are single men out there” says Alyssa as she demystifies the myths for 35+ single women. “These smart and savvy guys are approaching me from every corner of the world.”

As we continue to witness with Facebook and iPhone, the success of one media platform breeds adjunct applications, and Twitter discovered it is no exception.  Already Philip Kaplan, founder of FuckedCompany and Adbrite, lauched Flirt 140, a free service which allows users to find potential matches on Twitter based on gender, geographic area and keyword. Though all boast the same benefits and functionality, there are plenty of microdating communities out there including Plenty of Tweeps, TwitDates and Radaroo. Given that the technology is fairly easy to implement, we predict that larger dating sites like will be next to launch dating tweet decks of their own.

And though art often imitates life, in the case of social media the real world often mimics the medium. Justin Parfitt, founder and CEO of, a Canadian-based dating service provider, launched “Flitter” singles events in Australia and is now introducing them to social media singles throughout North America.

Guests at the 140 conference who attended the tweet and greet session simply wore a white sticker with a number given to them upon entry and were able to send direct messages to any number of strangers who caught their eye and fancy from across the room, all via their mobile devices.

And like Alyssa you don’t have to be a tech geek to join in the fun. Just beware who you talk to and what you tweet about, because these days it seems everybody it watching!
