'My date asked if we knew each other': Guy goes on cringe first date when he discovers his waitress is the other girl he was messaging that day

It's not exactly easy to play it cool in a situation like this. Picture this: you wake up one morning and you scroll on social media for a bit. Then, you complete your lazy morning routine by checking out your dating app matches and messages. You start to message someone new, you exchange witty texts, and you agree to catch up later because you both have to get ready for work. You then check in with the person you had already been messaging for quite some time now because the two of you have a…

Top 20+ Choosing Beggars of the Week (August 5, 2023)

It's remarkable how people can be demanding and desperate at the same time. One has to wonder what possesses these choosing beggars to be so audacious. Not that I am envious of this complete lack of self-awareness, but I do have to consider what life would be like if I had that level of confidence to just demand things with literally no leverage whatsoever.

Update: 'We are taking a break.': Wife beats insecure husband on online IQ test, it ends their relationship

Talk about the fragility of some people's egos. If your entire ego is built around feeling superior to your partner in intelligence, and that superiority can be shattered by something as innocuous as a phony online IQ test—well, quite frankly, you deserve however that makes you feel—you totally set yourself up for that one. (Especially when you were the one insisting that your wife take it.) Online exams of any type are useless—unless they're to find out which Disney princess you are. Sure, the…

15+ Texts People Should Not Have Sent

We have all had a regrettable texting moment, haven’t we? It could have been an impulsive moment of passion, a complete mistake, or a total misread of the situation. While you sit there and pretend that this kind of thing has not happened to you, I’ll chime in and admit that it’s happened to me on multiple occasions. I once was on my way to brunch with an ex-friend I didn’t like and texted my other friends that I was fully not looking forward to it. Except I didn’t text my other friends that…I…

'My husband knows I'm on here': 20+ Reasons to Swipe Left on Dating Apps

We know all too well at this point that people put crazy things on their dating app profiles. Sometimes, they are bizarre confessions that should wait till at least a third or fourth date. Sometimes, they are strangely hostile and limiting remarks about what they're looking for on the app. And sometimes, they are such boring stock answers to questions that you wonder if this person is even real. Who knows? Maybe they are a bot. And bots, folks, are an immediate “swipe left.” In addition to bots…

'It is the worst job I ever had': Dude gets calculated revenge by giving cheating girlfriend's new boyfriend his terrible job and dingy apartment

When a relationship ends suddenly—unexpectedly, with less than honest acts contributing to that abruptness—it can be hard to move forward. The lack of closure or preparedness, with your entire life and routine being turned on its head, is jarring, and the continued cycle of argument and retribution festers into a toxic tug-of-war that embroils both parties in an endless external and mental conflict. Anyone who tells you they're entirely faultless and managed a clean break in the aforementioned…

'It’s not me, it’s you': 20 regrettable things people said during breakups

In fairness, there's certainly no easy way to break up with someone. You can try to be as prepared and as measured as possible, but in the end, it always goes down differently than expected because at the end of the day, relationships are a two-way street. Your experience of how something is or isn't working will inevitably clash with the other person's perspective. So when you're finally readying yourself for that unfortunate conversation, it's unavoidable that someone will say something surpr…

The Best Dating App Fails of the Week (July 6, 2023)

The intricate workings of dating app algorithms are beyond us, at this point. It seems as though fate has conspired against us in this realm of digital romance. Tinder stands as both a glorious boon and a dreadful curse upon our species. On the one hand, it liberates us from the need to initiate face to face encounters with potential love interests. On the other hand, alas, it retrains us from indulging in the cherished art of approaching others in the real world. Whether one seeks a casual arr…
