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

Part of my job consists of reminding organizations to build relationships with their customers, especially by pushing out content on social media that starts a conversation.

Guys Don't Actually Care What You Say To Get A Date

I’m a writer. Obviously. Texting is my jam. I try to be interesting, funny and engaging with every text. I don’t spend a ton of time on what I write, although I do proofread them before I hit send, but it’s fair to say that when I’m trying to get a guy’s attention, the text... Read more »

Be Direct To Direct Your Way To Another Date

I know people think I live in a happy dating bubble.

Survey Says, Tinder Makes Us Picky, And A Little Cranky Too

Not everyone loves Tinder. Some are scared. Some have been dissed. Some message for months and never meet up. But I love it.

Gotta Look Good, Even For The Early Flight On Southwest Airlines

When I’m headed somewhere warm, I get on the earliest flight possible so I can make the most of the day and hopefully avoid any potential flight delays. On Saturday, that meant the 6 am flight to Florida. Even though it’s early, I still shower and get ready as if I was going out to... Read more »
