Why Guy Fieri Can Be the Best Wingman

Since I was a kid, on our family vacations we piled into a car and drove around the country stopping at random places along the way.

Never Date A Guy Who Uses the Heart Eyes Emoji

Or at least that’s what I’ve been told. I didn’t think much of it when the guy I was dating would end a text with the heart eyes emoji. It didn’t strike me as cute, but it also didn’t bother me. I was completely indifferent. Last week, I was filling in one of my guy... Read more »

If You Don't Ask A Question, Don't Expect To Get A First Date

As the holidays are approaching, I’ve been thinking about one of my favorite posts that I’ve written since I started blogging three years ago.

Just Another Tinder Tuesday: Meeting Up With Out-of-Towners

“Hi there” That’s all this guy wrote when we matched on Tinder on Monday night, but it’s better than the guys who just sit in your queue and wait for you. It doesn’t give me much to go on, but I’m used to getting conversations started out of nothing as many say that I could “talk... Read more »
