Apparently, a good number of people actually prefer the internet to having a significant other: http://www.reuters.com/article/lifestyleMolt/idUSN2460325120071024

------------------------

NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - Rather than looking for their perfect match, one in four Americans say the Internet can serve as a substitute for a significant other, according to a poll released on Wednesday.

A survey on the role the Internet plays in people's lives by Zogby International and communications consultancy 463 Communications found that 24 percent of Americans said the Internet could replace a partner for some period of time.

The percentage was highest among singles of whom 31 percent said the Internet could be a substitute -- with no difference among males and females.

The researchers said the online survey of 9,743 adults conducted between Oct 4-8 showed that some younger people viewed the Internet as their new best friend.

For while more than one in four Americans has a social networking profile such as MySpace or Facebook, among 18-24 year-olds this is almost mandatory with 78 percent of them having a social networking profile.

Breaking it down by political beliefs, the study found more Democrats have a social networking presence than Republicans -- at 32 percent to 22 percent.

But although American may love the Internet, most are not prepared to implant it into their brain -- even if it was safe, the researchers said.

Only 11 percent of respondents said they would be willing to safely implant a device that let them use their mind to access the Internet although one in five would insert a chip into a child 13 years old or younger to help track them.

So what do you prefer? The internets or tr00 luv? The internet never says No, or I'm too tired, or Make the sandwich yourself!

I prefer the internet. You can pay for the internet without feeling all dirty inside.

Sorry.

I know what the question is actually about. I just wanted to slide the "joke" in.

I regularly visit 4chan. The answer should be obvious.

Real women are needy bitches who always **** you over. The internet is only ever a little unreliable, and will do whatever you want

Anyway, why do I have to shoose? I have the internet, and I get sex. Why would I want to be tied down? Relationships just aren't my bag.

The internet helps you jack off. Women Jack you off.

Only when they want to jack you off. The internet always wants to help you jack off.
