Going into wedding planning, I already know what a lot of my proclivities are as a bride — partially because I’m a neurotic planner, and partially because, well, I’ve done this before. You live, you learn.
One of my proclivities: I hate The Knot. I hate it with a passion. They try to swindle… More »
Michelle Markowitz apparently had the same experience on Tinder that I had on OKCupid: Eventually, you begin to realize that not only are most of the potential matches exactly the same types of guys with the same types of baggage, they’re usually also incompatible (which is OK!), but often in a way that is borderline-if-not-definitely… More »

A new app called Moment is an attempt to help us curb our iPhone addictions by telling us exactly how much time we spend staring it at each day. I think most of us don’t realize the massive cumulative impact of the little 5-minute phone checks we do while waiting in line at the store or on… More »
Save the date! According to a new app from TIME, my ideal marriage date is in 11 months and 29 days, which means that unless I want to be a sad, single, lonely forever alone (I might, actually), I’d better find someone to marry on or around February 10, 2015.

Imagine opening your fridge to find a couple boxes of chow mein from last night, but not much else (you probably don’t have to try too hard to conjure up this scenario, huh?). The only problem is you don’t feel like chow mein, so you snap a quick photo of last night’s noodles, post it… More »
Iceland is a pretty small country, people-wise. There’s only around 300,000 people in total, and most of them are related. In Michael Lewis’s 2011 book Boomerang (on the global financial collapse. It’s really good!), he explains that there are only about nine surnames in the country, and everyone is listed in the phone book by… More »
