On the other side of relationships, friends matter. Or do they? Sebastian Mallaby wrote an article a few weeks back about how Americans (and many people from affluent countries) report having fewer friends than reported years ago. Now you might see as to why I’m not such a huge fan of MySpace.
So, do you have anyone close to confide in? Someone besides your spouse? I’m afraid that even Mallaby has me pegged in the article.
Also, Stephen Dubner made an interesting post about a new study from Satoshi Kanazawa, which explains that we witness beautiful women marrying unattractive men because of the supply & demand of beautiful women. So, this keeps my hopes alive.
