In the business of love, or lack thereof.

Why You'll Never Find Real Love Online from Marie Claire is a Q & A with a psychologist who used to work for Match.com, who lost his belief in the system when he realized he "hated the way we overpromised and underdelivered."

My favorite quote:
Sexual compatibility is a keystone to a relationship's long-term success, and it requires three things: a similar emotional approach (positive, friendly, and fun, or dark and mysterious); a similar activity level (fast and active, or slow and mellow); and a complementary power dynamic (strong, confident, and powerful, or gentle and submissive). These qualities often line up with what you want interpersonally, too.
