No date in '08? Go online in '09!

Roses are red, violets are blue, online dating is sweet and so are you. Millions of singles around the world are finding love through the Internet.

Embarrassed to meet that special person online? Don’t be! Online dating has evolved and moved into the mainstream. Type in online dating in Google and at least 38,800,000 pages will come up.

Even though there is only a fifty-fifty chance of marriage succeeding, 90% of Americans still choose to marry at least once in their lives. As relationship expert Franklin P. Jones said, “love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” Will Head, author of Joyfully Single, states, “It is the hope of sharing joy with someone you love that continues to encourage us to take our shot at achieving marital bliss.” Married couples are also healthier and live longer. They are generally more content and satisfied with their overall quality of life.

So how can one find success and their potential soul mate online? Don’t be afraid to be the first to contact someone. That is what’s great about online dating; you can break out of that shell. Be silly, flirty, who cares? It’s not like they know you. The meeting is all up to you. However, don’t try to be someone you’re not.

Kevin Kroger, employee for LDS, who has a B.S and MBA in psychology from BYU shares that, “Honesty is the best policy. Don’t be fooled thinking telling fibs will impress that special person enough to get a relationship started…It will turn them off!”

Lastly be smart. Even if you feel comfortable and have developed a relationship online, when meeting for the first time be safe. Meet in public and make sure to tell friends where you’re going. Don’t be afraid of offending your date. If meeting in public bothers them maybe they have something to hide. If all goes well, you can always meet again.

Good luck and have fun!

I do a lot of random things for work. I work full time at newly called UVU in the Testing Dept. My title is Testing Supervisor. Ring a Ding Ding. But what does that mean? Well I manage the student employees in the New Student Assessment Area, and the Proctor Exam Center, (I have met a lot of fun student employees through the years). I help in training, scheduling, discipline etc.

Another aspect of my job is I administer tests such as the GED, ACT-R, Police Officers Selection test, CAAP, remote compass testing, and a bunch of other tests. There is a whole world out there of tests I bet you didn't know about:) Exciting? Well I'll let you be the judge. I also order supplies for the office, count money, do billing.

Job number two consists of National Testing. ACT, SAT, Praxis, LSAT, ASE, MPRE to name a few. A couple times a month I adminster these delightful tests.

Last but not least I work at Quisnos. I pretty much decided to work there because the food is yummetron and you get a 50% discount when you work there. Also I wanted to fill up otherwise lonely nights. I work there a few nights a week with teenagers, pregnant unwed gals, druggies what have you. It was fun while it lasted. But I recently turned in my 2 week. 70 Hour work weeks occasionally!! Enough is enough. Plus recently my social calendar has been climbing. Wahoo!!!

Come One Come all to Provo's Art Gallery Stroll

Do you like free food, art and funky people? Then today is your lucky day!! Provo has started up their own art gallery stroll. YEAH, it's about time!!! It's right on University Parkway in the coal umbrella, sego art gallery etc. I have been to the Salt Lake art gallery stroll and have loved it. I'm excited to see that Provo has one too. It's usually held the first Friday of each month from 6-9.

Each store has an artist's work displayed. I was very impressed at the diversity and caliber of the art. One artist had a mobile made out of dyed tampons? Strange but true. Another bonus is you get to meet the artist. I must say Provo's got a lot of talent. With BYU and UVU close there are a ton of amazing artist majors.

It's fun to meet new people and eat yummy treats. Yes there is free food. This last Friday there were Mocktails, Hot coco, Cookies, Pumpkin Pie, crepes. The list goes on and on. If you love to people watch as much as I do then come on down, grab a mocktail, take a seat on a vintage couch and watch away.
