Valentine’s Day is long gone but spring is around the corner. Romance is always in the air.
I got a hot tip from someone I know (who will remain unnamed) who went onto a dating site called OkCupid. Since I’m happily married and want to stay that way, I didn’t sign up at this site so I could confirm this information, but, believe me, it’s from a very reliable source.
Apparently, when the term “dental floss” is entered as a search term, it comes up with 6100 users who claim this as part of their profile. The related term “flossing” returns 2668 members. There have been about 3.5 million active users in 2010 (but only 1.3 active users by 2011 at this site – I suppose a lot of them must have found someone to love and no longer felt the need to stay.) (Thanks to Wikipedia for helping with this.) It’s heart-warming to see that flossing is becoming a part of what some perceive makes them attractive, although with so many members, I would have hoped for more.
So, if you are looking for the love of your life, here’s some advice from someone who knows. Floss! And – talk about it.
