Why mismatched couples end up together

Have you ever wondered why some great men date women who seem ... beneath them, while other guys date women who are way out of their leagues? It makes no sense! Still, you see these types of couples all the time.

Well, after meticulously observing these types of couples and analyzing them instensely, I discovered that there are five kinds of men who tend to date women who just don't seem like a natural match. Here's who those guys are and why they date the women they date:

Seven years, seven lives changed by Twitter

(CNN) -- Twitter turns 7 on Thursday, and in some ways, it's like a lot of 7-year-olds.

The social-media platform can be bratty and combative. Its idea of a good conversation sometimes devolves into short bursts of shouting. It can have the attention span of a gnat, loving a shiny new plaything one day (ooh, Bronx Zoo's Cobra!) and then forsaking it for another without a second thought.

But it can also make you smile with the things it says. It can keep you more aware, and alert, than you've ever been before. And it can make you look at the world around you in a different way.

It's easy to take shots at the microblogging site, which debuted March 21, 2006, when founder Jack Dorsey typed the words "just setting up my twttr." (Creators had considered that abbreviated style for the company's name before settling on the full word.)

6 steps to the ultimate proposal

 Way before you meet the man you want to spend the rest of your life with, you most likely have already dreamed about two important occasions: your wedding and the time he proposes. You've ironed out every detail, the shape of the diamond you want, the color band your heart covets...

Mendeecees popped the question to his girlfriend Yandy Smith, on last night's episode of "Love & Hip Hop," and left viewers with tears cradling their cheeks as he set up a beautiful and romantic proposal.

His elaborate scheme, which consisted of surprising Yandy in a candlelit room adorned with rose pedals, was a breath of fresh air from the previous proposals we've seen on reality TV (coughs: Jim Jones).

Despite the fact that Mendeecees is currently awaiting trial for a drug trafficking case stemming from a 2005, his love for Yandy is evident in how far he went to make her special moment the ultimate memory.

Check out some key points from his proposal:

Get approval from mom (or dad)

Get a second opinion on the ring

Set up a romantic place to propose (rose petals and candles optional)

Get down on one knee

Smile and say some kind words before you pop the question (a fresh haircut works too)

Embrace your new fiancee!

Watch it all go down here:

Be the art you want to see in Detroit

Do you have a great idea for an art project?

Would it take place in, or benefit, Detroit?

If you answered yes to these two questions, write eight sentences describing the project by April 22 and you could win thousands!

This is not a scam. While the Knight Arts Challenge isn't quite as simple as sharing your idea and getting handed a check, it is entirely real and refreshingly straightforward in comparison to typical grant proposals.

Over three years, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation will award $9 million to Detroit arts projects that engage the community. They can come from anyone, from a student to a business.

"This contest is about ideas -– big ideas, inspiring ideas, authentically Detroit ideas. We want people to tell us what moves them, so that together we can help engage the soul of the community," Dennis Scholl, vice president of the arts for Knight Foundation, explained in a statement.
