As we grow older, we’re bound to deal with very grown up situations within the world of dating. I mean, that is if you’re actually getting dates. Some of us – namely me – are still struggling with emoji use and “haha!” vs. “LOL” in texts while others – like my girls – have more pressing matters to deal with.
I, Khalea Undateable, was finally catfished. I’ve been asking for it, really.
My initial response to using websites like Craigslist or OKCupid's blind date app to find hookups has always been no, no, NO. It freaks me out. Call it watching too many episodes of Catfish, but I am just too freaked out by how easy it is to lie about who you are online. A seemingly cute guy could be a 40 year old woman.
These people are not real. I mean, just let their profiles speak for themselves. Why would you ever say that to anyone ever?! I HAVE NO EVENS. Like...no wonder these people are single. I just..can't.
I can’t believe that summer is coming to a close! It feels like I was packing up my huge suitcases and taking a long bus ride to the city just yesterday.
Cue the tears, cue Adele, and cue me shoveling Ben and Jerry’s down my throat. I’m okay though really.
Last week, I realized that I’ve basically (and pathetically) dabbled in online dating since I had access to a laptop.
Well loyal readers, it’s time for another installment of “What the Hell Did I Get Myself Into By Agreeing to Try Online Dating?”, and I hope you’re all as stoked as I am!
For this post, I decided to break it down by questions I’ve come across while toying around with the OK Cupid site and meeting (yup, I said meeting) men from this site.
I’m not doing this 30-Day Challenge because I think that a man or a boyfriend is the key to my happiness or any woman’s happiness for that matter, but sometimes it’s nice to have a companion. It’s nice to be taken out for a date. What’s better than the beginning of a new relationship?
I, Courtney, am an online dater. Many of you probably find this weird considering I'm in college, a place filled with more available men than a single woman could ever dream of, but I'm finding it's more common than you think. The truth is, people just don't want to admit it.
According to OkCupid, a start-up dating site complete with in depth statistical analysis, it is rather easy to figure it out. Certain words found within online personalities (Facebook, blogs, about.me profiles) can indicate whether your date likes it rough or wants it gentle. These words can help you plan better for the big night.
As this is the September issue, the mag is about three times heavier than usual, which means there are three times as many ads to dig through to get to the actual content. That said, I did want nearly every piece of makeup and clothing featured, so I can't really hate too hard this time around. That made up for the questionable articles in the issue.
