  About a year ago,  a writer over at Jezebel wrote an essay entitled “When Can I Say I’ll Be Alone Forever?” The gist of her post was about confronting the possibility she may never find a significant other. It was a brave piece (and you know how much I hate that word) because it […]

November 13th, 2017

21 Comments

I recently gave my friend an analogy to online dating…buying/selling a used car. Bear with me. No, we’re not objects ‘for sale’. However the process of identifying and selecting a mate is nearly identical to purchasing a used car. Picture an individual seller, trying to sell his/her car. They post old pictures. Avoid showing dents/rust/scratches. […]

I hate being unmatched on Tinder. Hate it.  You get the little push notification of a mutual match, you swipe on it to get to your inbox annnnddd….they’re gone.  The only worse feeling is getting the match notification, giving it a few minutes to allow them the time to swipe through your photos and unmatch […]
