Just in time for Valentine’s Day, TIME has developed an application which analyzes the ages of your married Facebook friends to determine your perfect marriage date. It measures the median age of your married friends; half of your married friends are older and half are younger than the specified age. Friends who list their relationship status as “married,” “engaged,” “in a domestic partnership,” or “in a civil union” are included in the analysis. If your friends do not have their date of birth listed, including year, they are not counted.

Here are my results:
How am I supposed to get married in 25 days? Why would TIME make an app which makes people even more conscious of being single?
TIME assumed I would:
- Be envious if most of my friends were already married
- Base my life decisions on what my Facebook friends are doing
- Rush and get married if the date they specified is fast approaching
- Feel lonely if I should have already been married
