Are you ever late to your online dates? Even first dates? Yikes! I mean, sometimes there are valid reasons, but most of the time that comes off as pretty lame/rude.
(This is coming from someone who is usually chronically late because she arrived early and then lost track of time checking Twitter in her car once she found parking, which turned out to be farther away from the venue than she realized. Double-oops.)
Joanna Goddard, who was late for her first date with her husband, has rounded up some great lateness research to help y’all out!
Or, as she put it, you can just wear this instead. (It MIGHT score you a few points back, haha.)
The most recent entry in the NY Times’s Modern Love column has been getting a lot of traction lately, with good reason! It’s a fascinating exploration of a sticky academic idea about how to forge love, with a catchy headline to top it off. In a nutshell, the study explores the idea that two people can […]
Hey folks! We’re having another Mug Shots event on Saturday, January 31st in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. Here’s what you need to know! The cost is $99 per person.

I think some of it also comes from riding the Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve gauntlet that usually comes with increased […]

Hey all! A Twitter pal recently shared an insight on how he used Tinder to great success. If you ever need to help someone whose preferred type of partner is “silly with a hint of bitterness” – putting “idiot” as the only word in the Tinder bio works wonders. It’s a scarily good filter. I agree! […]
Hey everyone! I hope your transition into fall has been splendid. Mine has been great, but BUSY! And a little crazy… you know how they say things happen in threes? Well, our family car broke down, our washing machine flooded our basement, and the shelving in our closet came crashing down in the night narrowly […]
Over the weekend, Grant was Googling something random and came across this PDF of Old English trade names and descriptions. I’m a linguistics BA who loves geeky creative portmanteaux and playfully pretentious references, so I immediately proclaimed that these would be a fantastic source of online dating username inspiration for a certain geeky set. I think […]

Sounds useful, right? I hope it was. Check out that […]
This video from Alex Cornell totally cracked me up. (Via SwissMiss) It’s a little NSFW I guess, but all the curse words are bleeped. Here’s the thing; Alex is describing a totally real phenomenon, that’s in part technology and in part shifting social norms. The two really do go hand in hand. But rather than […]
