Summer is here and college students are once again hunting for summer jobs. Unfortunately, as news reports these past weeks have shown, this is the third summer in a row where jobs are scarce and college students have to compete with graduates forced into low-paying positions due to the unemployment crisis.
Some single college students have taken matters into their own hands by turning their summer loneliness into a full-time summer job. According to WhatsYourPrice.com, the world’s first and only dating auction website, the number of college students registering to date-for-dollars has tripled in the past two months.
“In the past two months, over 20,000 college students in the U.S. have signed up for an account on WhatsYourPrice.com where they are paid to go on first dates,” says Brandon Wade, the website’s founder & CEO. “Most college students are single and many actively date during the summer. Our website provides a way for them to monetize their romantic pursuits.”
On WhatsYourPrice.com, college students make up approximately 35% of the website’s 400,000 members. College students receive a free premium membership upgrade when they register with their dot-EDU email addresses. According to the website, college members go on an average of 5.4 first dates a week and receives an average of $121.00 for each date.

They get paid for their time and they get to enjoy their summer at other peoples’ expenses.”

Brilliance of the Seas * April 6 – 13, 2013
Since Ashley Madison arrived in Brazil 15 months ago, the website has attracted one million lusty Brazilians, turning this South American country of 194 million people into one of the biggest markets for the Canadian company.
Created 10 years ago, Ashley Madison and its slogan: “Life is short. Have an affair” is now present in 24 countries, with eight million members in the United States and six million in Canada.
“Brazilians have a very strong propensity for pleasure, sex and fun,” said Eduardo Borges, the company’s representative in this body-conscious country famous for its exuberant samba dancing and carnival.
Ashley Madison was created with women in mind. The ladies do not pay to subscribe or make contacts with men, who are the ones who must pay to send emails, chat messages, draw hearts or use other techniques of virtual seduction.
For a conversation between two members, one of the members must pay five credits to initiate the conversation. Any follow-up messages between the two members are free after the communication has been initiated.
A pack of 100 credits, which allows a man to contact 20 women on average, costs $25.
There’s a little corner of Shanghai China reminiscent of a classic English market town. With it’s cobbled streets and corner shops, Thames Town was the scene of one of the largest matchmaking events in Chinese history.
In November of 2011 and again in May of 2012, Super Bachelors Day was held for single men and women under the age of 35.
This mass Chinese matchmaking event was handled along the lines of a speed dating extravaganza, with over 38,000 singles and concerned parents vying for an opportunity to find their soul mate.
A lack of young women – a result of the skewed rate of baby boys born under China’s one-child policy – means an estimated 30 to 50 million men will be without a wife in 20 years.
Higher education levels, a focus on careers, and greater expectations are causing city-dwellers to marry later and have fewer children. Shanghai’s fertility rate—the number of children the average woman in the city will bear over her lifetime—was 0.79 in the year ended October 2010, about half the national level
In March, China‘s top online dating portal, Jiayuan.com, released a report titled Confessions of a Leftover Lady. (These “leftover women” are usually single women over 30 ( they can be in their mid to late 20’s also). The stigma of being a leftover woman is so prevalent that the Chinese government has made the term “leftover women” an official part of the language.)
The survey confirmed the belief among Chinese women born in the 1970s and ’80s that the more education they have and the higher their salaries, the harder the task of finding a husband. Most younger women in China will still marry, but a growing number are choosing to focus on education and career over finding a mate.
About 2,000 couples were successfully matched at last year’s event. This year parents studied profiles of single men and women in dozens of matchmaking booths around the park, including one decorated with pink feather boas. A typical poster read: “1.67 meter female working in a research field, born in 1983, looking for 1.77 meter male born after 1977.”
The problem is not only in cities like Shanghai as Hong Kong faces the same dilemma where one in five women can expect to remain single for the rest of their lives

Swinging is basically a social activity or to put it bluntly, recreational social sex, and is usually experienced by couples in established relationships. Swingers have pre-arranged casual relationships with the opposite sex partners of other couples.
Typically speaking, swingers participate as couples in a swinging lifestyle, bringing in one person, another couple, or a group to share each other’s company. These arrangements both involve sex outside of a commited (legal or otherwise) relationship.
The man in their life normally introduces women into the swinging lifestyle. A good percentage of men would relish an opportunity to swing…….if they could. Usually men are held back from participating in the lifestyle by their marriage or their inability to find a woman for a swinging partner.
A large amount of trust and communication is needed for swingers to successfully maintain a loving partnership while enjoying the benefits of an open relationship.
Swingers can find swing couples and individuals through membership in the North American Swing Club Association but that site does not offer activities.
Swinging couples with children or who don’t wish to risk meeting other couples at a public location (like a swing club) are taking advantage of the online communities that are catering to this niche. These sites have basically become the social networking hub for swingers around the world.
