It's easy to list everything we should do when dating, but it's a little trickier to to navigate the "don'ts." Here, a handy guide for meeting new people and first dates.
While many of us have at least some sort of social networking presence—whether on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or a personal blog—most of us stay connected through our cell phones. While the miracles of technology are many (for one, it allows us to stay in touch with our friends and families long-distance), our phones and Facebook profiles can cause some serious dating drama.
Many people would say that there are dangers of dating a criminal and even advocate checking criminal records of online daters. In many situations where your potential date is a criminal there is reason to be cautious. Sometimes this fact will be a good reason to not pursue a relationship or even a date. In other situations, you may still be interested in dating the criminal, but you will need to exercise certain precautions.
Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy have been blazing through relationship milestones ever since July (yes, July), and yet it seems it's all Swift's doing. Here's why we think her recent moves with her new man are making her look really desperate. Hint: these are dating don'ts, girls!
There are things we all know are just "no-no's" when it comes to how we talk to others. Sensitive subjects, touchy topics, and last nerves, all things we should have the good common sense to avoid bringing up. Of course, some are more obvious and generalized while others are very specific, a case by case basis if you will. And yet…some people just don't effin know when to remove their foot from their freaking mouth! This week's Dude's List is going to feature 13 of those dumbass comments and questions that no guy should ever say to a girl…
When Josh walked in, all the girls let out a collective "OMG!" gasp. He was well over six feet tall, with short brown hair, piercing blue eyes and full sleeve tattoos. For a group of women who all harbored a predilection for all things rocker-related, he was a vision. He was hot and he could cook. Could it get any better?
So have you ever been on date with a guy and all of a sudden he says something that makes you say “That’s Crazy!” I mean seriously… the conversation can be going so well and unfortunately, it goes south because one of you says something that the other finds unattractive.
It's perfectly normal for a guy to text his girlfriend with "good morning" to get her in a good mood for the day. Going through the hassle of taking a screenshot of this ordinary text and uploading it to a social media platform for the world to see, however, is not normal.
If your friends on Facebook and Twitter keep asking how old you are, you may want to reconsider your use of emoticons, winkies, smiley faces and beating heart icons in your updates. The days of Lisa Frank cuteness are over, toots. It's time to grow up and accept the boring lines and excel spreadsheets of adulthood.
We bought our first lottery ticket a few months ago when the jackpot was close to $315 million. We won two dollars. It was disappointing, as the lottery usually is – you start to fantasize about what you would do with that much money, but in the back of your head you know your chances are impossibly slim. Not so with this lottery!
Airports are awful these days. They're crowded with people who aren't sure where they need to go and don't understand that you need to take your shoes off while going through security. And don't even get us started on the creepy pat-downs from complete strangers who get to do so because they're wearing uniforms...
I met Cindy through my buddy, Andre. She was his girlfriend Karen's best friend since grade school, and he had told me just a couple of hours in advance that Karen was bringing her friend along because she thought that we would hit it off. It was more like being hit by a freight train.
Gone are the days when you had to take pop quizzes and standardized tests, and you couldn't be happier. The last time you remember using a pencil to fill in a little circle on paper was when you asserted that yes, you are over 18 and (unlike the tanning mom's daughter) old enough to use a tanning bed.
