Internet Dating, Love, and Identity - Internet dating is one of the most popular ways to meet a potential person that meets your needs for your ideal relationship.

Dating, Cohabitation, and Marriage - The appropriate age to begin dating in my view should be around fifteen to sixteen years of age for females and perhaps a year older for males (sixteen to seventeen).

Soap Operas and Reality TV Dating Shows - Relationship Between Soap Operas and Reality TV Dating Shows Tania Modleski’s “The Search for Tomorrow in Today’s Soap Operas” proposes that the unique appeal and function of soap opera lies in (a) the viewer’s ability to inhabit the text’s prescribed spectatorial position of ‘the good mother’, and (b) use the archetypal ‘villainess’ to displace one’s own repressed anger and powerlessness. It can be argued, using Modleski’s analytical perspectives on the interpellated spectatorial positions of soap operas, that a new genre of television programs (namely the reality dating shows) function in a similar way....   [tags: Television Media TV Essays] 1762 words

By successfully exploiting the classic notion of "happily ever after," Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider have created a mega brand that has sold millions of dollars of nonsensical teachings to unsuspecting women for more than a decade.
