SURVEYED: Matthew Perry's character of Chandler Bing on "Friends" is the overwhelming choice when it comes to women looking for a man they'd most want to date or marry, according to a poll conducted by Yahoo! Personals, using the soon-to-exit sitcom as a guide to potential friend and lover role models. Jennifer Aniston's Rachel Green was the males' choice for a mate, while an overwhelming 75 percent of the 1,200 singles surveyed responded that the TV characters have become their own friends over the past 10 years. And, yes: 40 percent of the men admitted that they've used Matt LeBlanc's pickup line as Joey, "How you doin'?"

Now here we are in our 30s and some of us have been married and some babies have been born. ... What's so weird about this show is that so much of our lives get in there. ... Whether it was a relationship thing or a parental thing, a situation in our lives is somehow always being played out on the show. ... It did feel like I was growing up in front of everybody.
