Interesting
Very intriguing information. I like the insight about single men in San Jose and San Francisco, but there's a reason for that.

Those areas are dominated by Silicon Valley, a place where many single technology professionals migrate to. That's why there are so many single guys there!

Re: Interesting
Also worth noting: New York City, Detroit, and L.A. had a high percentage of singles, but the lowest rates of probable relationships. Many of my friends, especially in NYC and LA, would agree with that. :-)

Fort Worth, Texas
Try "Fort Worth, Texas," rather than "Forth Worth" as first mentioned in the article. The second mention is correct. Thanks.

Online Love
This is basically about online relationships. I met a wonderful person online 3 years ago. I don't think facebook is doing anything different here.

Other factors
I'd like to see some age related data to go along side with this, as Facebook relationship statuses are going to fluctuate far more in younger teens where a "relationship" isn't as much of a real thing as it would be in older users, who are also less likely to change their status on a whim or out of spite.

Re: Other factors
Yes there is a high probability that's happening.

All in fair in love and war, so is big data analysis on social data, but I wonder if predictability would be a good thing or a bad thing in the long run on relationships. Knowing that assumptions and correlation can be accurate as times, at other times they can be completely random.

Sunk Costs
The second finding reminds me of this "Honest Valentine Card."

Re: Sunk Costs
That's great. It is odd the way the human brain works sometimes.
