#Problematic: Katy Perry Wants More Bad Blood

I heard on NPR this week that Kai Ryssdal said some disparaging things about millennials on his Marketplace segment. As a member of the dreaded millennial pack, I get it.

Mommie Dearest: Whatever You Do, Don’t Parent Like The Duggars

25 Types Of Men I’m Absolutely Tired Of At 25

Now, more than ever before, I have come to a point in my life where I just have zero patience for certain types of men. Part of the reason for this is that I’ve had much more dating experience, but I think more importantly, I have gained a certain degree of self-confidence after surviving college…

Dealbreaker: I Got Called A Bitch On A Virtual First Date

I have long said that the fastest way to see if someone is an asshole or not is to see how they treat people in the service industry. I have ended budding relationships after one date after seeing a dude snap at a server, and consider people who “don’t believe in tipping” to be a…
