Thinking of spending this weekend alone, curled up on the sofa and drowning your singledom sorrows in a tub of organic ice cream, while paying your bills online? Don't let being a "green" single make you blue. The results of a new survey conducted by PerfectMatch.com®, a leading online dating and relationship service, indicate that more than 80 percent of single adults between the ages of 30 and 59 agree that a partner's commitment to the environment is important to enduring, romantic relationships.
"Online relationship sites offer a more targeted approach. We attract singles with particular passions," said Duane Dahl, CEO and founder of PerfectMatch.com. "Living an ecologically responsible life shouldn't mean you need to compromise or sacrifice your personal relationships. We take a more intelligent approach to relationships and focus our efforts on bettering the odds for individuals serious about finding their true love."
"People who are 'green' often integrate environmental responsibility in their approach to life," says Dr. Pepper Schwartz, PerfectMatch.com relationship expert and tenured professor at the University of Washington. "Environmentally conscious people just can't feel that someone is a soul mate if they don't share their concern for the Earth. It's like dating a smoker if you're a non-smoker."

Whenever possible, wash your clothes by hand and dry them on a rack or clothesline. The two members of my small family each wash the clothes we wore during the day and hang them up to dry before we go to bed. For the five minutes each of us spends at this nightly task, we save $30.00 a month on electricity and reduce our annual carbon output by two tons.

Don't water plants when the weather is inclement, the rainfall abundant. The rainfall will be sufficient to satisfy the water requirements of the plants.

Local home owner associations should give homeowners recycling credits on their monthly water and garbage bills. Credits or rebates would encourage the homeowners to recycle. One of my neighbors had this bothersome view on recycling: "They charge $3 a month whether or not you recycle. I don't want to recycle because my wife and I don't create that much trash - and we get charged for it. So to heck with them; they can keep their recycle bin!" This man wouldn't be so upset if he were to have the recycle fee rebated. Maybe a credit or rebate system would encourage others to recycle.
