Being Famous Hurts So Good

Jimmy Kimmel is known for a plethora of pranks and bits on his late night show, but one of the most popular with celebrities and non-celebs alike is his star-studded “Celebrity Mean Tweets” segment. In the bit, celebrities read aloud real tweets about themselves – and let’s just say they don’t include many accolades about their work! Celebs like Britney Spears, Lisa Kudrow, and Gwyneth Paltrow (famously reviled by many for her often uncouth comments the harshness of celebrity life) made appearances in the eighth edition of the segment – check out the comedic bit here!

Stir Up Some Conversation

So many profiles here at Match talk about the desire for great conversation. And who wouldn’t want that? Conversation is at the heart of relationships, both new and seasoned. Conversation is how we determine if there’s a connection with someone at the beginning—to see if sparks really fly—and it’s often the thing that keeps people connected down the road.  Great conversations can change opinions or solidify hunches.

We on the STIR team, talk a lot about conversations – how they start, how they continue and even how they end. What we’re really interested in is creating the conditions for conversation. What places are best for it? What topics trigger it? What kills a convo? Read more…

Match Success Couple: Samantha and Don

I was about to give up on match for a while…  Then I got a response from Samantha. After a few nice emails I asked if she wanted to meet for a drink.

So, we made a second date. Read more…

Celebrating Veterans Day: Military Match Success Couple Sarah and Dillen

In honor of Veterans Day, we wanted to highlight an All-American military couple with plenty to celebrate themselves. Thank you for your service, Sarah, and Happy Veterans Day to all!

Jan 2012: I’m deployed to Afghanistan. I was on plan to ship home in a 1 week. So, I decided that I’d line up a date or two for when I returned. It would be just enough time to talk to someone, get to know them, and be ready to meet them when I got back. Before I even made a profile, I browsed the available guys. That’s when I noticed Dillen. That very same night, I made a profile and sent him a wink. That was the beginning of the rest of my life :-) For that week we talked every single day, sometimes for hours (Thank God for Skype!). Then we got some bad news. Plans changed. I’d be stuck in Afghanistan for another month. It seemed like the end of the world. We talked and emailed every day. Every day for 30 days. It was the oddest feeling…missing someone you’ve never even met. Read more…

Julie & Keith match.com success couple

Match Success Couple: Julie and Keith

I was instantly attracted to Keith when I saw his online profile. He was a teacher, just like myself and he seemed to portray a very positive outlook on life. After talking for a couple of weeks online, we decided to meet and we were hooked from that point on. We had endured many hard times together in the beginning and as we built our lives together but we always found a way to get through. Read more…
