Ok, ok. So, “Facebook” is a bit of silly name. I mean, you’re not going to literally put your face in a book- although considering the kinds of people who use these soc-nets, I wouldn’t be surprised.

So, women really do want the fellas who’ve been taken?

While reading an interesting brief article on the difference in how the sexual psychology of how male and female minds work in a back copy of a Science/Technology magazine – which I promise was just about the science, I came to realise something.
