Waiting for that special someone to break up so you can move in?
Now you can get an email telling you when it's time start wooing.
A new site called Breakup Notifier lets you log in using your Facebook account, choose who you're interested in and then sends you an email when their relationship status changes.
"You like someone. They're in a relationship. Be the first to know when they're out of it," the site says.
In other words, forget about constantly refreshing a Facebook profile with the hope that the relationship status is about to change.
The idea came from the founder's efforts to find the perfect guy for his fiancee's sister. Dan Loewenherz, his fiancee and his mother found the right guy on Facebook only to learn that he was in a relationship.
So Loewenherz spent four hours coming up with Breakup Notifier, TechCrunch.com reported.
Breakup Notifier crawls Facebook every 10 minutes.
The site is now free but Loewenherz may charge .99 cents for early adopters and $4.99 at some point in the future, TechCrunch reported.
