Dating Blog Roundup For The Week of October 20th, 2008

By October 20, 2008

Follow me on:

This week's roundup features a mix of my own personal RSS feeds and a handful of articles sent in by readers. I'm always amazed at how weekly themes crop up, even when bloggers have nothing to do with one another.

Dad's House Blog discusses why he's unable to do the long distance dating thing as a single parent.

The Frisky shares how to date a couple, complete with first-hand details about the author's long standing polyamorous triad.

eHarmony talks about some recently-released research, explaining why humor helps couples cope with relationship struggles - but only some forms of humor, and only in some types of relationships.

Science Daily finds that being altruistic is one of the best ways to attract a woman.

Single Mom Seeking has piqued my interest with her dual-versioned date; it seems an ex of hers found her blog - an ex that she's recently reconnected with over coffee. He was so thrilled with her candid (and flattering) retellings of their so-far platonic interactions, that he decided to start up his own blog in turn - Who's Your Daddy? - and now the two of them are going to blog their next 'date' independently. I'm a bit surprised at my eagerness to see what happens next.

Taken Girl in the South shares with her readers that she's no longer taken. Rather, she seems blissfully happy that she's single again.

Slate Your Date is a new site that caters to singles wanting to complain about their dating experiences. Originally a fictional concept created in Matt Dunn's Ex-Girlfriends United, where the main character finds out he's been rudely reported about in a website of the same name in what resembles (to me) an online version of High Fidelity. There isn't a lot of content posted yet, but I could see frustrated daters getting a kick out of this, similar to why Don't Date Him Girl has become so popular.

Thanks to everyone who sent me a link to their blogs and websites with content this week. If you've got something dating-related that may be of interest to singles, feel free to send me a note with the details at dating.guide@about.com.
