Facebook might understand your romantic prospects better than you do. In a blog post published yesterday, the company’s team of data scientists announced that statistical evidence hints at budding relationships before the relationships start.
As couples become couples, Facebook data scientist Carlos Diuk writes, the two people enter a period of courtship, during which timeline posts increase. After the couple makes it official, their posts on each others’ walls decrease—presumably because the happy two are spending more time together.
In the post on Facebook’s data science blog, Diuk gives hard numbers: During the 100 days before the relationship starts, we observe a slow but steady increase in the number of timeline posts shared between the future couple. When the relationship starts (“day 0”), posts begin to decrease. We observe a peak of 1.67 posts per day 12 days before the relationship begins, and a lowest point of 1.53 posts per day 85 days into the relationship.
Presumably, couples decide to spend more time together, courtship is off, and online interactions give way to more interactions in the physical world.

When You Fall in Love, This Is What Facebook Sees - The Atlantic

A growing number of Millennial women are beginning to fret over the unanticipated consequences of prioritizing our careers before love. And I only need to look at my group of friends to see this reality. Again and again, year after year, my successful, gorgeous, and amazing friends remain kiss-less on New Year’s Eve. And on Valentine’s Day. And on the 4th of July. The only dateable men we encounter are either attached, gay, or otherwise involved in “it’s complicated” situations. We are coming to the realization that we were unwittingly playing a game of musical chairs — while everyone was pairing up, those focused on our careers are left standing alone.

When you're moving in with a significant other for the first time, what is more important in determining whose bed gets to be in the master bedroom and whose gets to be in the guest bedroom - how comfortable the mattress is or how big the bed is?

Going on personal experience we would say comfort over size. Would you rather sleep alone on a log or cuddle in a pile of goose feathers?
