Am I In Love?

I was falling for him, at first slowly, then hard and fast, and without trepidation. I never experienced love before, and therefore never experienced heartbreak. I had a clean slate from which I had no roadblocks, constructed walls, and nothing to encumber myself from falling head-over-heels. I could not stop thinking about him, and I succeeded in inserting his name into every conversation I had.

Can Your Dateability Be Written All Over Your Face?

I arrived at Nightwood and waited for him at the bar. I had only seen photos from his OKCupid profile, yet I remained hopeful that he hadn’t gained twenty pounds or aged twenty years.

We thought it would be interesting (and humorous) to expose the daily quirks of women that really do leave men befuddled. So, we decided to dig into the most culturally influential –– and most heavily trafficked –– website on the Internet today: reddit.com.

7 Signs You're Dating The Wrong Person

“If you’re always with Mr. Wrong, you’ll never meet Mr. Right,” a friend once advised me after draping my relationship malaise all over her. Rather than letting this cliche breeze past me, I pondered it. I realized there was more to it than just if you’re with person A, you can’t meet person B. It meant you must free yourself of the emotional angst tied to the wrong person in order to be emotionally prepared to meet the right person.

Online Dating Is Controlling Societal Norms Without Our Noticing

The air in Santa Cruz was warm and still as I sat among perfect roses in the backyard of the bride’s parents. At the key moment of this nontraditional Jewish wedding, the friend presiding over the ceremony took a moment to explain the Hebrew word kadosh.
