I have met this girl a couple times and I find her to be very cute. The last time I ran into the girl, I got tongue-tied and didn't want to make myself look dumb. Now I was thinking that I could go and search for her on Facebook and see if I can do introduce myself that way. What do you think?

Time to air a grievance: I'm becoming less and less interested in Facebook.

Imagine being on the other side of the world, having enemy soldiers trying to kill you and finding out that, while you were in a relationship when you left for battle, you're not going to be in one when you get home. “I'd say a solid half of the guys in our unit had relationships and marriages that fell apart via Facebook and electronic communications during our deployment,” said retired Army Spc.

Who got fat? Who came out? Who got divorced or married (or divorced and married)? Those sorts of questions make high school and college reunions irresistible. But in an era of digital photo albums and Facebook status updates, has the idea of in-person reunions become as appealing as the prospect of watered-down drinks served in a dimly lit gymnasium? Not according to Cyndi Clamp, president of the National Association of Reunion Managers, who says there is no clear correlation between Facebook participation and reunion attendance.
