After her first episode, Alice Johnson is in full-swing and ready to get out there in the dating world. The only problem is Alice is a little demure when it comes to flirting. But she doesn't want to be a prude. So, Alice decides to play a few little characters to unleash her inner bad girl.
We all like having a wise person guide us through our problems. But can a person we don't know really help us with relationship advice? Crowdsourcing is a great tool for determining if something is generally good but what it's not great at is nuance. Would you randomly ask strangers for love advice? Would you take it?
A dog can be a girl's best friend. Unfortunately, that dog may not be her boyfriend's best friend. How should you introduce a new guy to your pet? And should you get a pet without running it by your partner?
Sometimes you have to mix it up to make a good first impression.
Being a human-being (and thinking and saying and doing) means sometimes stepping outside of your comfort zone. Unless you're The Most Interesting Man In The World, you may have to fake it until you make it here and there. Unless you're moving from being a socially-awkward recluse to a world famous motivational speaker, nowhere is stepping outside of your comfort zone so necessary as dating. There's a reason that boozin' leads to shmoozin' which leads to smoochin'.
Timmy Gordon's Canadian girlfriend exists! Or does she?
People aren't always the most honest about their dating lives. From virginity status to choice of partners to how much money you make, sometimes we just can't bear to tell the truth. Our favorite 50s hero, Timmy Gordon, may not be 100% forthcoming about his relationships than we would have liked.
"Facebook Manners And You" stars Alice and Timmy's love story continues... on Facebook, naturally.
While some may long for the simpler days of sock hops and soda shoppe romance—we at YourTango wonder what the old days would have been like with modern technology thrown in the mix. Remember "Facebook Manners And You"? The love story continues... on Facebook, naturally. Many of you met Alice and Timmy, the stars of "Facebook Manners and You," our Webby Award-nominated video about Facebook relationship dos and don'ts, in Spring 2009. Now those crazy kids are back! This time they're documenting their relationship for the world to see with their "Electronic Picture Diaries." Using their MyPhones and OurTube, Alice and Timmy try to manage their old-fashioned love with modern technology. "Facebook Manners and You" was a viral hit and Alice and Timmy's electronic picture diaries are posed to do the same. Each week, starting November 15, a new Alice and Timmy video will be released on YourTango's Facebook fan page. You can view the trailer below and watch the first episode by visiting this link: Facebook.com/yourtango
Alice and Timmy are back with more relationship advice for Facebook.
We produced a video about Facebook manners and dating rules last year that completely took off. There is literally not a household in America that doesn't know the names Alice and Timmy. Despite the video's ominous ending, we felt the Alice and Timmy story wasn't over. To that regard (and because we LOVE the idealized 1950s), we've created a 14-part video series about how Alice and Timmy met and what technology SHOULD have been like 50 years ago. Check us out on Facebook to see the WHOLE story.
