Is Hollywood Altering Our Idea of Healthy Love?


Is Hollywood Altering Our Idea of Healthy Love?
Music lyrics continue to create unrealistic and unhealthy perceptions of love. We go to the source.

Dearest Ne-Yo,

I used to like you.


“Miss Independent” was once my personal anthem, and I sang it loud and proud, feeling each word with every fiber of my being. “Cause she walk like a boss/Talk like a boss/Manicured nails to set the pedicure off/She’s fly effortlessly….” You CLEARLY knew what you were talking about.

I even followed along with you as you crooned “One In A Million.” Lines like, “Sure enough your glow/It makes your soul stand out from all the rest” and “There’s a million girls around/But I don’t see no one but you” had me convinced that you knew how to properly woo a woman.

Some of your musical collaborations remain on my list of favorites, and I deeply respected your expertise (and confident swagger) when you were an advisor for team Cee-Lo on season two of “The Voice.” You seemed like a sincere gentleman who knew a thing or two about love, sex, and relationships.

THAT Ne-Yo worked for me. I was into it.

However, while driving home from work today, I heard lyrics that I literally found so grossly misleading and unrealistic that I literally turned up the music to make sure I was hearing it correctly.

Tinder: Is It Time To Move On?


I used to host speed dating events. On any given night, forty to fifty people would show up hoping to meet someone amazing within the span of a four-minute date. It was kind of a strange idea at first— meeting twenty guys in one evening to see if anyone had potential. But it was efficient. I sifted through more and more guys each week who ... Read more
