His Good Looks Took Me Bad Places

Last November after my second break up in five years, I made the grave mistake of attempting to jump right back into the dating market.  Old habits die hard; I have been perpetually in relationships since the age of 16, and I am now 27.  That's a long timeframe of codependency, embarassing to admit, but I've grown from the acknowledgement of my mistake.  Once I was burned and ditched for his high school flame, I allowed myself to spend a weekend in a self pity party so depressing that I was close to pulling a Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 500 Days of Summe

Dating Disaster: A Guy, A Girl, Her Gas

I met Philip while out recruiting contestants for Blind Date. Once he told me he went to Vassar, I knew he'd never do the show. Instead, I kept him for myself. I looked extra cute and Philip seemed really into me. It was perfect. Well, almost. That morning, I had accidentally eaten some bad pineapple.

4 Reasons Women Should Only Date Online

Some people still think online dating is only for freaks, geeks and ugly people. Case in point: a recent Business Insider article arguing that online dating is for old and desperate people, namely women over the age of 30 with no relationship prospects. The article's 23-year-old writer claims that women in their twenties don't need online dating, suggesting that instead of lurking behind the computer screen, they should go outside and meet people "the old-fashioned way." We at YourTango are not convinced. Why take on and dedicate time to additional activities and responsibilities if you can simply log on, fill out a profile, and start browsing matches in a matter of minutes?
