How To Turn Down A Date

There are infinite amount of ways to ask someone out because there are infinite amount of situations that it can come up in. And for as many ways that there are to ask, there are as many ways to reject. You could probably write it as an equation: X number of attempts = X number of rejections which can be rewritten as X attempts to procreate = X number of ways to get kicked in the nut sack.

Friday Faves: Am I Too Picky?

I spent the entire fall semester working on taking the GRE exam, filling out graduate applications (and spending major money on sending them out!), and writing the most intense essay of my undergraduate career to send along to my program choices.

Tuffy Luv Sez: Fear of What Now?!

Dear Tuffy Love, I have a major crush on my RA. I know it's wrong and the chances of something happening are almost zero, but I can't seem to get rid of these feelings.

Dating In The Dark Makes Us All Look Shallow

So ABC’s new show, “Dating in the Dark,” is weird. Like, really weird. Three girls and three guys meet in the pitch dark, often make out, and then get to see one another. They then have to decide if they want to go on actual dates with the people they have just seen
