See More As a child of the Internet and confirmed weirdo, imagine my relief when they finally took that last bastion of in-person awkwardness — dating — to my laptop instead. I’ve been using one of the major dating sites, OkCupid, on and off for about five years now. While it has its perks, being a woman on a dating site means immersing yourself in a disgusting cesspool of exposed nerves, unfiltered testosterone, and daily propositions to engage in sex acts so horrifying, I hadn’t even heard of them before, and I’m from the Internet. I got the feeling that a lot of men on that site would message literally any woman who had a profile, but the optimist in me wanted to believe that there was a limit. Maybe there was a woman so awful, so toxic, so irredeemably unlikeable that no one would message her, or if they did, at least they would realize they never, ever wanted to meet her. So I made the OkCupid profile of the Worst Woman on Earth, hoping to prove that there exists an online dating profile so loathsome that no man would message it.

The Dilemma of Bad Data

While people in our lives push us to be the best people we can be, a partner in a healthy relationship accepts and loves you for the person you are today.

All unformatted, non-classified, duplicated data or incomplete information that companies deal with on day to day basis is referred to as bad data. With this exponential rise, the percentage of bad data is bound to go up significantly, creating hurdles for data interpreters due to which company loses a lot on time and efforts in finding out the solution. Invalid Reporting Reports form an essential part of day to day decision-making process. Unavailability of required reports can then hamper crucial decisions which may translate into losses for the company in the longer run.

For instance, in a processed cheese making company, they need X litres of fresh milk on regular basis for the production. During a festive week, the market demand of their products rises manifold. In such a situation, the production team prepares a chart on the basis of reports of current stock level of milk and sends it to the purchase manager.

Any error in the report can lead to severe problems like stock-out-situation or wastage as milk is a perishable commodity. Lower Output Until and unless the managers are equipped with correct, formatted and classified data, they are not going to achieve the desired levels of output for the company. High Cost of Maintenance Data is widely used by businesses, to highlight areas of improvement in business operation.

Now, in absence of Data Management tools, companies incur huge costs in hiring dedicated manpower to maintain the pile of unformatted data, which is not going to give you instant results when required. Incorrect Matrix A typical inventory intensive company requires more than five different types of reports to keep a thorough check on unit economics of their business.

Collecting data into the system is one task and extracting formatted data out of it is another. Incorrect matrices could mislead and it may happen that you are turning a small portion of your inventory very quickly while a large portion of your inventory is remaining idle, getting old and is losing value.

I was always in a relationship. Not long after that I got into a two-year relationship with a man who loved, yet cheated on me. It was a messy breakup. So after ten years in relationships, I found myself alone. Recently some questions have bounced around in mind: What happened to me during those years? What did I get, gain, achieve in these two relationships? Why am I now alone? What will I do? How do I do things by myself? I started to panic, to hyperventilate—until I found this quote:

In many online situations, self-misrepresentation is totally harmless. Who cares if your Halo 3 avatar is taller than you are in real life? But in online dating, where the whole goal is to eventually meet other people in person, creating a false impression is a whole different deal. People do everything they can in their OkCupid profiles to make it the best representation of themselves.

People are two inches shorter. The male heights on OkCupid very nearly follow the expected normal distribution — except the whole thing is shifted to the right of where it should be.

Dating ideas and tips for married Christian men who want to actively love their wife and pursue a lifetime relationship with her. Sunday, May 6, Date Idea 14 – Plan a Dream Date As life continually moves on, practicality and responsibility often overshadow and eclipse the dreams we had as a couple when we first got married. My suggestion this time is to plan a “dream date”. This date will be unique to every couple, as everyone has a different purpose and different journey.

Pick a place that you both can enjoy being yourselves and talk freely and openly. For my wife and I, this is usually a park or some place outdoors. Talk about the things you dream about doing together. Here are some ideas for “dream date” conversation starters: What places do you want to go together? Talk about vacations you’d like to take together, places you both want to see, countries you want to visit.

Remember, be free to dream! Don’t be afraid to fantasize a bit.

What Are the Promises of God? Imagine stumbling over a treasure chest buried in the ground. The Bible is like that treasure chest. But God wants us to open this treasure chest and see all the riches we have in his promises. He wants us to see his promises, trust his promises, and be transformed by his promises. But we can only do that if we know his promises. So — what are the promises of God?

We all long for heart-satisfaction. We all crave joy, pleasure, and beauty. And we can find some joy, pleasure, and beauty in things of the world. But none of these gives us full joy. But God has good news. God promises that full and lasting joy is found in himself; in knowing him as he is revealed in Jesus Christ.
