My “Perfect” Marriage Date Is Apparently In 11 Months And 29 Days

My "Perfect" Marriage Date Is Apparently In 11 Months And 29 Days

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. TIME arrived at this number by analyzing the median age of my married friends on Facebook to ”theoretically identify whether you have passed the point where many of your contemporaries start tying the knot.”  Keep reading »

New App Can Tell You If You’re Going Out With A Sex Offender

new-app-sex-offender

If you’re an avid Tinder user or an OkCupid enthusiast, there’s a new app that can help protect you from the possible dangerous consequences of meeting up with people IRL. NameTag uses facial recognition software to give you all the details on a potential date– including whether or not they’re a registered sex offender. It’s basically an anti-sexual assault Pokédex. The future is now. Read more on The Gloss…

What Is LuLu And How Is It Ruining Relationships?

lulu-app

If you haven’t downloaded the LuLu app, go do it. Right now. Seriously, I’ll wait.

LuLu is the craziest thing I have seen since Tinder (and that’s saying something). Basically, every man who has ever existed on Facebook is on here for women to judge. Yes, for women to judge. Mainly it’s for hook ups—but friends can also go on and rate their friends if they want to give them a boost. Otherwise, you find the person you want to date or have pieced up, and you answer a series of questions. Read more on College Candy…

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 to a new app called Leftover Swap, and start scrolling through other local leftover offerings to see if anyone might have some pizza or a sandwich to trade. Are you grossed out or intrigued? Either way, you’re not alone. “It’s obviously not for everybody,” Leftover Swap co-founder Dan Newman told NPR. “But for as many people who seemingly have a problem with it, there’s people who love the idea.” Keep reading »

Accidental Incest App Helps Icelanders Avoid Banging Their Relatives

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 their first names. And yes, they all know Bjork. “Yes, I know Bjork,” says a professor at the University of Iceland, whom Lewis interviews. “She can’t sing, and I know her mother from childhood, and they were both crazy. That she is so well known outside of Iceland tells me more about the world than it does about Bjork.”

Thanks to their generally closed society over the last 1,100 years and the fact that everyone has similar last names (ending in either -son or -dottir), dating and mating can be tricky. But a new app, which is loosely translated to mean Incest Prevention Alarm, is hoping to help Icelanders avoid sleeping with relations. Its slogan is “Bump the app before you bump in bed.” Keep reading »

Pen, Pencil Or Sloth? Now You Can Draw With All Of ‘Em

Regular writing utensils are so boring. That’s why we’re super into this new app that let’s you draw with sloths. Yes, that’s right, sloths. The Sloths.AreRad.com gives you the sloth option (the app’s eraser is a moonraser, of course). I’ve drawn a note for Amelia in sloth, because she hates them and they make her uncomfortable.

Relationship In A Rut? There’s An App For That!

It’s no secret that after the initial “honeymoon” phase of a relationship, couples can get, well, lazy.

That laziness comes in many forms—lack of sexual intimacy, letting yourself go, absence of the small gestures of affection that were once so frequent and intoxicating—you get the picture. The holidays (and the return of New Year’s Resolutions) are typically a time of vowing to combat that complacency and ignite the spark that once burned so bright; but, as the story goes, resolutions are often broken well before the end of week one.

So, how can couples combat their relationship ruts this year? Well, there’s an app for that. Read more…

I’ll admit I was skeptical when I heard that the White House was holding a technology challenge for developers to create an app that would help prevent sexual violence. All of the stuff that I believe can change the prevalence of sexual violence — harsher punishments for criminals, a cultural change on what consent means, a modification of the way we use alcohol and drugs — cannot be found in the App Store. But I’m impressed — very impressed — by the contest’s winning app called Circle Of Six. Keep reading »
