Underlined passage, Blue River by Ethan Canin, page 43.

How to Hack Your Way to True Love…
via futurejournalismproject:

Brain Pickings features the story of Amy Webb, a journalist and digital strategist who, after a series of bad dates and heartbreak, turned to data to figure out just what she wants in a man, and reverse-engineered a profile that would attract the type of man she was looking for.

This allowed her to create a “super profile,” her very own custom “algorithm” of love. Once she looked at her data and set up a real profile for herself, it was a matter of time until she met Brian, fell in love, got married, and started a family — your ordinary happily-ever-after fairy tale ending, with an extraordinary side of quantitative and qualitative magic. Read on.

She wrote a book about it all: see here.And a gave a TED Talk: see here.

“Think I’m In Love” by Beck

I think I’m in love But it makes me kinda nervous to say so

Happy Valentine’s Day from LolBeck!

“Four years ago, I was just a guy who had a crush on a girl, who had a boyfriend. And I had to do the hardest thing that I’ve ever had to do, which was just to… wait. Don’t get me wrong, I flirted with her. Pam, I can now admit in front of friends and family, that I do know how to make a photocopy. Didn’t need your help that many times.

“For a really long time that’s all I had. Little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And, a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl I work with but I think, even then I knew that… I was waiting for my wife.”

the perfect couple always

Best GIFSet ever.
