What's the best way for all those single people out there to find love? By advertising the fact that your relationship status (or lack thereof) on your wrist, of course! It sounds absurd but unbelievably, that's essentially the entire concept behind a new startup called MY Single Band. The company makes $9 Livestrong-style bracelets that they say is meant to help single people find each other. I swear, you just can't make this stuff up.

The product's site calls the silicone wristbands--which come in seven different colors and are engrained with words like "fate" and "destiny"--the "future of dating" and the founders even claim that if they take off, it can make online dating obsolete.

"Online dating isn't for everyone, and if you don't go to bars and clubs, then often it can be very difficult to meet other singles," co-creator Rob Young told The Daily News. "We wanted to create something that would connect singles in everyday life, be stylish and identifiable and still allow for chemistry between couples."

Of course, there's also one obvious question: who in their right mind would wear these?! I don't know about you, but isn't it easier to just, you know, talk to someone to find out if they are available? Not to mention, these bracelets do nothing to address the sexual orientation of the person wearing them, even if they are single.

Still, this is far from the only strange relationship product out there.  Below, check out other tools meant to help your love life, but are just plain weird:

This fertility watch is supposed to help women keep track of the days they're ovulating ... but again, why would you want to wear this information around your wrist? Don't people know there's an app (actually, dozens) for that?!

Meant for long-distance couples (or partners with serious separation anxiety), the Kissinger is basically a machine that "enables kissing communication." How? Basically, you kiss the device and it transmits your lip movements to another Kissenger in a different location. Can you imagine watching someone use this thing? Bizarre!

Love Palz 4

Also meant for long-distance couples, LovePalz is a two-way, Internet connected "pleasure machine" that allows people in different bedrooms (from anywhere that has Wi-Fi) to simulate sex. Um...what?! Call me crazy, but I think I'd rather wait for the real thing!

The ridiculous app basically "measures" your lovemaking sessions, by the amount of the thrusts, the duration, and the decibel levels and then uploads theresults to Facebook and Twitter. I don't even want to know what kind of couple actually uses this ...
