Why the F*CK is dating a lot of people a bad thing?

Our 20's is a time for us to be selfish, to take risks. It's a time to travel the world, move to a different city, see what the world has to offer outside of our comfort zones. It's a time to find yourself, a time to begin your journey in the reality that we spent our [...]

Why I Never Answered Your Text

Why I Never Answered Your Text

"Why didn't you write me? Why? It wasn't over for me, I waited for you for seven years. But now it's too late." "I wrote you 365 letters. I wrote you everyday for a year." "You wrote me?" "Yes... it wasn't over, it still isn't over" Sorry, ladies and gents. It is over. And it's [...]

Tinder Conversations: NY Edition

Let’s stop letting a double tap make us feel beautiful

You get ready for class, feeling confident about how you look. You spent a little extra time picking out an outfit, and maybe put on more makeup than usual. As you walk through campus, people are coming up behind you and tapping you twice, proclaiming, "I like you!" They then stick stars all over your [...]

An Open Letter To All of My Future “Whatevers”

Dear My Future "Whatevers," Hey there, it's me, Beth. I don't know if our relationship will ever extend beyond texting or if you talk to me just to hold onto the hope of having sex with me. We may get married, or our first date might make us want to run for the hills. You [...]
