I really don't understand the timeline. Was he often dating more than one girl? What's the "green filler" at the end of each relation?

interesting idea. but like s i am having a bit of a problem understanding the little details. i.e. did the attractive attributes build up in time? doesn't a relationship change in time from "who are you" to "let's make babies"...

(I think) The green filter is the actual timeframe of the relationship. (so he wasn't dating more than one girl at a time as often as you might be thinking s)

I really dig it. Great work!

yeah, I was confused about the time at first too. I think you are right jason. Otherwise his first 'fling' was, at what, nine years old?

Some of the icons are really hilarious. Makes it a great deal more interesting, I think.

Man, the guy sure drinks a lot. At least he has an icon to admit it - that's got to be the first step to recovery.

This seems a very dry way to present this kind of information, and there isn't so much information that an infographic reveals something new, some unknown trend. But it is well executed - leaving the breakup glyphs to the viewer to decode was an interesting idea. A more expressive, physical, and thought provoking example of recording relationships abstractly is Fiona Raby & Anthony Dunnes' 'Evidence Doll’ http://www.interaction.rca.ac.uk/people/staff/fiona-raby/projects/project1.html

FYI, that's "kama" (like kama sutra) as an "impressive attribute" rather than karma.

dude needs to relax with the rapid fire engagements!

Yes, he was dating more than one girl at time. I can attest to that. And now he's profiting off of others.
