Forget Grandma’s wisdom – the modern dating scene has evolved and some of the most classic Dating Advice is now obsolete. Match.com’s relationship expert Kate Taylor brings you up to speed Wait 3 days to call In the olden days, boy met girl, boy got girl’s phone number, boy waited three days to ring girl, boy looked mysterious and exotic.

The 50 most brilliant, obnoxious, or delightfully sociopathic Facebook posts of 2011. posted 12/29/2011 After spending a good chunk of this year gathering Facebook posts entertaining enough for public consumption and/or ridicule, it felt less like we were putting together a humor website and more like we were preparing our PhD dissertation in sociology. These 50 posts were selected out of the hundreds we've shared with you throughout the year.

We hope you enjoy them as much as we did, and we thank you for being quick-fingered enough to screenshot your friends' more embarrassing status updates before they could click delete.
