Meeting a mate online is not easy. At all. And anyone who's used ever a dating app can tell you a horror story or three. Your straightforward and basic account profile won't catch potential partners' eyes – instead, it'll turn them off. What matters? Well, according to statistics, it's a mix of things we can't control, how we talk about ourselves and what we show off. It can be everything from race to your favorite sport. And while appearances matter more than ever to the online world, so does vocab ... and where you take your profile picture.

I'm a recipe developer. So I've seen cookies cooked in cookies. I've seen pie-flavored jelly shots. I've seen homemade pop-tarts stuffed with candy bars and And mason jars of cake, packed to the gills with a ribbony swirl of rainbow colors. So, we decided to simplify.

Each one represents how this country has failed the African American community. Michael Brown's murder is still bleeding on the face of this country.
