It is Tough to Break Up in the Digital Ageposted by MR WAVETHEORY at 3/27/2006 06:29:00 PM
Some exes are unwittingly reunited in cyberspace. One Philadelphia couple of 29 years got divorced and both the ex-husband and ex-wife posted profiles on JDate.com, entering in details such as their age, education, marital status and location. Shortly after signing up, the ex-wife says, she received a message from the site declaring her a match with her ex-husband.
The cellphone is usually among the first items that need cleansing. Wireless-handset maker Nokia Corp. even touches on the idea in a TV ad that features a woman named Jill, who says cellphone-number deletion is a sort of post-breakup therapy.
"It is so great because when you go to the phone and you delete [the number] and your phone asks 'Are you sure?' You look at your phone and you're like, oh yeah, I'm sure," she says in the ad.The cheesy human interest articles on the front page of the Journal are always a treat. I think it's time to do a mass cleaning of my address book. Who do I start with?
