I am Completely OK Being Alone
By Dani Katz
If we channeled all the energy that we, as a species, put into seeking love outside ourselves – be it trolling for snacks at the farmer’s market, hunting big game on personal site X, or dolling up to pose boozy and available at bass-boomin’ disco Y – we could easily sustain the planet’s every energetic function, and have enough power left over to share with a neighboring star system.

What happened to wooing? Two words: “Jersey Shore.” On a recent episode, the Situation was all a flutter (as “a flutter” as he can be) over a girl he just met in a Miami nightclub.

Listen up men. Hawaiian shirts have never been cool. And if you are trying to impress a woman on a date do not, I repeat, do not wear one. Not only will a Hawaiian shirt age a man ten years (and place him into friend territory) but it also disqualifies him from any decent restaurants in the area. If he plans on taking his date to a less than average establishment, then he and his Hawaiian shirt will fit in just fine with the crowd at Burger King.

“Hey, I’m at the bar with the guys, do you want to meet up with us for happy hour?” he texts, while sitting at the bar just after ordering his first drink. “Sure, I’ll be there in a little, just give me a few minutes to get ready,” she texts back.
