Match Success Couple: Cyndi and Jay

After 10 years of marriage, I never thought I’d find someone I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.  I was resigned to just be a single mom and live a life full of my children and pets.  My mother moved in to my house and we planned to be “Dorothy and Sophia” from the Golden Girls.  Read more…

Matthew Knowles, You Might Be The Father

Matthew Knowles birthed the QUEEN that is Beyonce (and hot mess that is Solange), but apparently he’s been making a string of illegitimate children. The latest woman to come forth and demand child support is TaQoya Branscomb. According to filed papers, Knowles and Branscomb conceived the baby girl in 2010. The plot thickens: that was the same year Matthew Knowles and Tina Knowles, Beyonce’s mother, split! Oh, and did we forget to mention Branscomb was best friends with Solange? (We suggest you take the stairs and avoid all elevators, TaQoya.)

Have you ever had a parent get together with one of your best friends?

Match Success Couple: Brittany & Jimmy

Jimmy and I met on Match right before both of us were going to cancel our membership. We had each been on a few dates with people that hadn’t turned out very well, and we were about to cut our losses. Then Jimmy saw my Date Spark idea on his page one day. Go Kart racing, arcade games, and bad pizza. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Kara and Brandon

In honor of this weekend’s Fourth of July holiday, we wanted to highlight not one, but TWO All-American couples with plenty to celebrate themselves. Thank you for your service, Brandon & Rob, and Happy Independence Day to all!

Brandon and I first connected on Match.com in April of 2009. I had received numerous emails from other guys, but I was not interested in them. When Brandon emailed me, I knew right away he was the one for me. He only left out one minor detail when we started emailing each other, and that was he was in Iraq. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Casey & Heidi

“After being on Match.com off and on since my mid 20′s, I’m now 37, I have met many wonderful people. I even met my ex-wife on Match.com. Although it didn’t work out between she and I, I wouldn’t change meeting her for the world because it led to my two wonderful children…”

Lana Del Rey and Her Boyfriend Broke Up… But Uh, He Didn’t Get the Memo

When Noah told Allie, “It still isn’t over!” he was deemed a cinematic hero. Well, now that Lana Del Rey’s rocker (ex?) boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill is saying it—it’s creepy. Singer Del Rey recently started that the couple had broken up. “We are currently not together… He is a wonderful person. But there are some things with which he has to deal. I will not explain it in detail. This was hard on our relationship, I no longer felt free. We’ll see how it goes.” O’Neill was asked about his new-found relationship status, and he replied, “It’s not over. It’s not over, don’t believe what you read.” Sounds pretty over to us, buddy.

Have you ever had an ex who just couldn’t accept the break-up?
