We use apps for everything- gaming, banking, news, and yes, dating. Though some may still prefer the old-fashioned way of meeting someone, you’ll find that sometimes your growing schedule won’t allow love to have its way.
I’ve come across some dating apps thanks to suggestions from friends, and I’ll admit it’s a whole ‘nother ball game.
When’s the right time to exchange numbers? When should we meet in person?Then there’s the more recent fear: Am I being catfished?
Of course it’s important to exercise good judgment and I would suggest that you read up on some helpful tips. Also, before you meet ANYONE in person- even if he’s a cute Ivy League graduate willing to watch Pretty Little Liars with you- let a friend or family member know.
So first on the list is Tinder, which claims “It’s like real life, but better.” On the app you’re able to find people nearby and “Like” ‘em or “Nope” ‘em with the swipe of your finger. If you like someone and they’re a match, then you can message each other right on the app.
Tinder is connected to your Facebook account, which means you can see mutual friends. This comes in handy if you want to ask one of the homies if your potential boo is a creeper.
Oh and no worries, the app won’t post on your newsfeed that you’re out on the prowl.
I’ve discovered that HBO’s Girls is one of those shows that people either love or hate. I initially watched the series while packing for New York in December and ended up binge-watching the entire first two seasons. Though I regretted only having two shirts packed, I completely enjoyed the hilarity and hijinks.
Now I understand that Girls has an odd sense of humor, but I can’t deny that the show’s creator, Lena Dunham, has a way of speaking the mind of many 20-somethings. Like Hannah, we’re lost while trying to navigate through life with a group of equally lost (and dysfunctional) friends.
Sigh… Sometimes I wish I could just inherit Solange’s fashion sense. If she was my big sister, I’d
steal borrow her clothes all of the time.
Yesterday the Art Director and Creative Consultant at Puma released a sneak peek of the new “Girls of Blaze” collection, as well as some behind the scenes footage. Designed by New York City artists, the bright and colorful sneaker collection is inspired by the sights of Brazil. The visuals for the look book were shot by Alan Ferguson, who is also Solange’s beau.
I’ve never been much of a sneaker-head, but I love Solange’s style and attention to detail. Don’t the models look like a gang of Solange clones?
Today the ATL indie art film house, House of June, debuted their new web series, “The Shrink in B-6.” Check out the pilot below and let’s chat about it.
One of my favorite movies is Love Jones starring Larenz Tate and the gorgeous Nia Long. Watching it on television is a rare opportunity so I took it upon myself to order it from Amazon for a splendid five bucks.
The 1997 film- considered a hip When Harry Met Sally- tells about the tumultuous yet romantic relationship between Darius, a writer/poet, and Nina, a photographer. They meet at the bar during a poetry night and things take off quickly when Darius performs a rather risqué spoken word poem about his new love interest.
“Say baby, can I be your slave?”
You can assume how the rest of the poem went.
Despite their chemistry, Darius and Nina deal with all sorts of problems: miscommunication, a lack of trust, breaking of the guy code, and the awkward “What are we?” stage. While watching Love Jones for the umpteenth time, I never bothered to analyze their Crazy in Love relationship because they were just so darn cute together.
It got me thinking: Is it possible to have a drama-free relationship? How can we prevent our relationships from becoming situationships?
