Dating Don’ts: Is It A Booty Call Or Nah?

We've all been there.

Tried & Tested: 10 Hippie Beauty Treatments

Beauty products are the one thing that I waste my money on.

Dating Don’ts: How To Handle Rejection In Dating

Like conducting a job search, online dating is an exercise in patience, compatibility, and, sometimes, rejection.

Dating Don’ts: Should You Unfriend Your Ex?

Dating Don’ts: 5 Possible Outcomes Of Defining The Relationship

Nobody handles The Talk very well. Usually, it’s a stilted affair, capable of rendering even the most confidently grown to their pre-teen self, stuttering and drawing circles in the condensation left by their wineglass, assiduously avoiding eye contact.

Dating Donts: Let’s Talk About The Rules

I was sitting with a couple of smart women that I respect when the subject of dating came up, as it tends to do. “I read The Rules, and it changed my life,” one friend told me, in complete earnestness. “I swear by The Rules. They really work.” I was taken aback, and for good…
