Given that it's devoted to finding and rating the dorkiness of personal (some might say navel-gazing) web sites such as this one, I acknowledge the smug irony (or something) of calling out www.losers.org. In my (somewhat feeble) defense, though, I'd like to note that I neither use animated gifs nor elucidate the differences between bestiality and zoophilia nor make observations like this:

Ben & I are both from English speaking countries and America & Great Britain share a "special relationship". However there are so many language and cultural differences that we've come across. Being in an international relationship is challenging for many reasons.

I mean, I feel your pain, babe: my boyfriend is from Canada, another English speaking country with which America shares a 'special relationship,' but I don't feel the need to note every difference between the two nations (save for Canada's significantly greater access to proper Kit Kats) and how same make for some hearty relationship challenges. But then, I guess I don't have to whinge about all of that online because I dump it on my friends instead.

On an unrelated note, Jonathan Safran Foer's novel is finally out, and I'm rejoicing. The excerpt in last year's New Yorker young authors issue was one of the best things I've read in recent memory, and it left me itchy for more.
