12 Weeks: Why Interning Is A Good Thing

In public relations we’re often made to feel we each have to be doing certain things in a specific order to be successful. For me this included being told I should intern around throughout college instead of staying with one agency. Coming out of college, there was a lot of negative connotations and thoughts surrounding […]

Who Pays When Gays Go on a Date?

I was at birthday party over the weekend when it came up, if you’re gay, who pays for the date? First dates: I believe whoever initiated the first date should pay. First dates are a chance to make a great first impression, so as a part of that, paying sets the tone and your intentions. […]

Adventures in Online Dating: Tinder Honesty

Being a gay guy living in a city like Tallahassee, dating was a struggle. My enthusiastic personality, ambition and not being picky per se but looking for certain qualities was stifling and off putting to some guys. “Nice” and “sweet” were words used to describe me, but where were “sexy,” “charming” and all those other […]

Alone in a New City

It’s not per say being alone in a new city that makes you feel alone. It’s the feeling you left a life behind that was yours. I spend a lot of time outside of work catching up with friends on their latest happenings, updating friends and answering the question, how is Atlanta? For the first […]

Who We Are. How We Feel. How We React.

In elementary school we displayed so much of who we are, how we feel and how we react in different situation. That is why our families worried for us, but also was excited to see how we would turn out. I wanted teachers to affirm that my hard work was noticed, not for validation as […]

Compromised

As another year passes by I see how conversations about dating with friends don’t only revolve around the intricacies of asking someone out or the friend zone. It also revolves around the delicateness of hooking up and friends with benefits. Asking someone out, the friend zone and friends with benefits all have their own struggles, […]

Too Tired, Too Sleepy Or Hungover

She never wants someone to remember her as the one who was too tired, too sleepy or even hungover. Last night Miss America 2014 Nina Davulri mentioned being told some people will only meet Miss America once in their life. Nina realized she would be that Miss America for some people. We only meet some people once in […]

Wake-Up Call Wednesday: Dating & Facebook

Wake-Up Call Wednesday! We never like someone more romantically by friending them on Facebook. We start making assumptions and perceiving them in a different way than organically getting to know them. I embrace holding off from friending them until we’ve reached solid ground. We may never be on solid ground, but at least they aren’t […]

Be. More. Invested.

On the brink of graduation and truly for the last year I’ve noticed a lack of investment in people when it comes to our platonic relationships and potential romances. I’m not naïve or lacking the idea that all types of relationships are two-way. Too often people want you to meet them three-quarters down the road. […]

Flirty Friday 12/27/13

“Flirty Friday” – Friday dating and relationship inspiration as you head into the weekend.  Say goodbye, because crushes are fleeting, and a crush is defined as an intense but short-lived infatuation. Say goodbye, because you’re surrendering. And surrendering is not your head down to the earth, but head and arms raised to the skies of […]
