But why go through all that dating torture when the answer to your single status prayers is right on your wrist.

Living relationships: 7 tips guaranteed to improve your dating life

The expression “wearing your heart on your sleeve” has been taken to a new level — although to be fair, it’s not really your sleeve anymore. Your wrist is the new place to make your feelings known. The MY Single Band — a colored rubber bracelet that tells other potential mates that you are single — is the latest accessory for fall. Photo: Courtesy of MY Single Band

The bracelets, developed by Danish-British couple Rina Mardahl and Rob Young, are supposed to “increase new encounters, lower the fear of first introductions, and suit busy modern lifestyles,” according to the Daily Mail. And they claim they may just “change the face of dating forever.”

“The launch of MY Single Band is a revolutionary concept,” said the couple in a statement about their bracelets, which make it easy to identify if the wearer is single.

“MY Single Band not only impresses upon others that there is so much choice out there, but also where that choice lies.”

Did the nitwits consider that people may wear the bracelets just because they like the bracelets or maybe just to lie they are single?  Duh I dunno.   "Are you married?"  "No not for tonight anyway".
