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...
Now, we know things go down differently in the South than they do where we're based in NYC. There are plenty more cowboy boots, country boys and Kenny Chesney songs, which is all "fine and dandy" in our book. But, for a gal who's not from around those parts, a date proposal that involves large quantities of mud does not sound like a fun, romantic way to spend a Friday night.
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.
Long-distance relationships are arguably the hardest – the days and months a couple spends apart can really take a toll on their connection, trust and dedication. It's a tough situation.
Remember that day your significant other sent you a really sweet text message for no reason, and it filled your heart with warm, fluttery butterflies? Remember having the desire to share it with someone else, just to say, "Aww, look how much he loves me?"
We know the popular sayings to describe two people who are meant to be together: "Oh, Tim and Sally? They're like two peas in a pod, birds of a feather, a match made in heaven..." But, we didn't know "sloths eating a string bean" was one of them!
Something tells us if you're looking to cheat without getting caught, you tread carefully. You don't shout it from the rooftops or joke about it with your friends. You also don't explicitly post your intentions on a free, easily accessible website like Craigslist. Well, this guy didn't get the memo.
Online dating experts are always stressing that you should know how to sell yourself to a potential match. This means listing your best qualities in your profile and posting photos that make you look like a fabulous catch. This does not mean that you should refer to yourself as a "lazy cow."
Hopefully, you'll get proposed to once in your life, and when that big moment happens, it will be one you'll never forget. Preferably, some candles, champagne, an exotic location or extravagant gesture will be involved... Not your boyfriend's Facebook status.
We've read enough "online dating dos and don'ts" lists to know that harping on your worst qualities won't get you very far in the virtual search for love. Instead, you're supposed to highlight the characteristics that make you unique and intriguing to potential suitors.
Sometimes you may find yourself whining to your other single friends, "Why don't people want to date me? I'm cool, I'm funny, I dress well..." And then the conversation ends there, probably because you realize how self-involved you sound.
