    My Private Soulmate

    My Private Soulmate

    Attraction intertwines with individuals daily. It's natural for two individuals to cross paths. It takes patience getting to know the person before rushing into relationships. You finally established similarities and differences in building a special connection. You accept your mate's flaws and thank their accomplishments. You enter a sacred realm to keep your love lives between yourselves for a while. People from the outside world are getting curious because of your hiatus. Here is the catch! You having thoughts to post your mate on social media for the world to know who you are dating. The ambivalent feelings arise from your psyche manifesting into your soul. You are in a constant battle of should I post my mate on social media or not? Should I continue to remain private or keep it a secret?

    I'm not a dating expert and I don't specialize in this kind of stuff, this is just my opinion on Tinder and what I've encountered. I can't possibly be the only woman tired getting dick pics? And yes you can't send photos through Tinder but if you link your Instagram or Snapchat, then well, you are getting dick pics. I mean there's nothing wrong with it if you ask for the dick pic... But just receiving it with no warning, it's annoying. It honestly turns me off from Tinder completely. Men, y'all need to work on how you approach women also, I'm not saying all men. I'm tired of the first message you send is talking about my big ass titties or the basic hey that's followed up with all one word responses. I like when a man inboxes me and says something like, "Hey I love your eyes. How has your day been? Let's get to know one another." To the people who are on Tinder just for sex, that's awesome, but let it be known. Don't tell someone that you are just looking for friends or want something more, and then just fuck her at your mom's house, feeding her pillow talk and never talk to her again. Ghosting is stupid if you don't want to see anyone again just let it be known, but ignoring someone or leading them on is pathetic.

    A Conversation with an Uncovered 'Catfish,' and How to Identify Them

    "So... what age are you really?" I asked, for the second time, after catching a guy who, for three days, posed as an 18 year old attractive gym junkie.

    Sticks and Stones Will Break My Bones, but Deleting Me on Facebook Won't Hurt Me

    Sticks and Stones Will Break My Bones, but Deleting Me on Facebook Won't Hurt Me

    Right now in America, we have never been so divided by red and blue. We are tremulous to give our opinion, fearing that what we say will cause us to lose friends and become disliked. You can' log onto Facebook without seeing your aunt fight with your boyfriend over politics on an article you shared, or Timehop showing you a memory from a year ago of people who were once your "friends" but no longer are because you shared something they didn't like, hence they took you off Facebook...it sounds petty, but...ouch? It stings when we've been deleted off Facebook. The saying, "sticks and stones will break my bones, but deleting me on Facebook won't hurt me," just isn't and never was true. Deleting people off Facebook speaks millions of volumes to our generation, and as much as we like to be the bigger person...we're human, capable of feeling hurt from what seems like the most insignificant of things (like feeling down because you got deleted for liking a comment). Deleting one another off Facebook is this generation's indirect and cowardly way of saying, "you're not my friend anymore," or "Sc*w you and your opinion."

    How Cell Phones Have Destroyed  Relationships and How to Fix Them

    How Cell Phones Have Destroyed Relationships and How to Fix Them

    What did we ever do before we had that handy little thing known as a phone? In the old days, before we had these neat little devices, we were forced to communicate with one another by speaking or writing on paper. In today's technology-centered society, we seem to have forgotten how to exist without a screen and a ding to tell us when to wake up, when to go somewhere and now these handheld gadgets can tell us when to drink water. We revolve around our phones, our laptops, and tablets. Since the introduction of cell phones, our society has become as addicted to them as an addict is addicted to a substance. Otherwise healthy relationships are destroyed, families are ripped apart, and we have lost our sense of self through the overuse of phones and like technology.

    Snapchat Needs to Stop Being the New Phone Number

    Snapchat Needs to Stop Being the New Phone Number

    If one more boy asks for my Snapchat instead of my phone number I’m going to give up completely on meeting anyone! Being in my young 20s and a part of the Gen Z group, we are known to be all about social media. I mean I wouldn’t call myself old fashion but I started to see this trend once I transferred to a bigger College. Growing up, it was just normal to ask for someone's number, for homework, clubs, or just because you became friends. It's super simple to do, all you have to do is hand me the phone with the keypad open. Girls always just gave me their numbers, but boys always seemed to give me their Snapchats. When I went to community college I only experienced exchanging snapchats with a boy once, but soon after I had his number. At what point did we stop giving people our phone numbers and starting giving out Snapchats?

    Feeling Less Than

    Feeling Less Than

    They say comparison is the thief of joy. Well, whoever “they” are, they’re right. Haven’t you ever just been scrolling through Instagram on a Tuesday night, and seen some beauty guru or workout blogger say for the gazillionth time, “I’m just sooo thankful for the opportunity I have to share my love of {insert literally anything here} with all of you! XOXO #blessed (and other annoying hashtags). All while you’re sitting in your sweats, on your third piece of pizza because there is *no* way you’re cooking after the day you just had.

    Tinder

    Love is always in the air! Or at least the smoldering remains of it. What’s more inviting than the stench of one-night stands, breakups, and desperation? Forget E-Harmony or face-to-face dating—who needs to invest in relationships? What better way to find “the one” than getting the old but trendy location-based social Tinder app? No, this isn’t an advertisement, but it can’t hurt to tell (and sometimes exaggerate) the truth. Anyone who has come in contact with this masterpiece is sure to tell some crazy stories. From stalkers following others to work, men calling for blowjobs, or random girls requesting to swing in hammocks in the middle of the woods (that’s not an exaggeration), Tinder expands your horizons and your fiery horror stories. But when you’re a young, ambitious millennial, any reckless adventure will do, especially when you only have to worry about yourself because you’re as single as a dollar bill. I mean, try new things, right?
