How to Flirt Better in 5 Steps

Be Confident

Go ahead and spark up a conversation! Keep in mind that the age old question remains, especially when chatting online, what have you got to lose? But ladies, that doesn’t mean that you should go spilling your guts. Keep the conversation positive by telling him about what you do for a living and how you are kicking butt at work right now. Or that you’ve joined a volleyball team and you’re really enjoying it. And ask him open ended questions about his interests or what he’s up to this summer to get the conversation going – both in person and online!

How the “Selfie” is Affecting Self-Esteem

Online love

Never has the dictionary caused more controversy than when the word “selfie” was dubbed 2013’s “word of the year.” Selfies may be seen as silly, harmless fun, but they can also trigger serious self-esteem issues, especially for women.

Why We Love the Selfie

Let’s face it – nothing gives you a quick self-esteem boost quite like taking the perfect selfie. Your eyes are sparkling, your skin is glowing, and you know you look good. When you post it on social media and watch the positive comments roll in…that feels even better.

Why Online Dating is So Popular

Online love

There was a time, not so long ago, when very few people would admit to online dating. Thankfully that time is in the past. These days, over a third of newlyweds meet online, and they report being happier than their offline counterparts. The stigma of online dating is behind us, and it couldn’t come at a better time – with our crazy, busy, exhausting lives, we need online dating more than ever! Here are just a few reasons why online dating is so popular today.

The 20-Something’s Guide to a First Date Outfit

Oh, the dreaded first-date outfit: falling on the outfit difficulty scale between job interviews and the first day of school.

The first date is all about first impressions, so wearing something that makes you feel comfortable and confident will let you focus on whether your date is the one for you (or to plan an escape if he’s a total dud).

These four tips are a fail-safe way to plan the perfect outfit – and hey, if the guy doesn’t work out, at least you’ll have a cute outfit ready for your next first date!

1. Plan Ahead

Choose your outfit in advance so you aren’t panicking in your underwear 10 minutes before you have to leave. You are more likely to be relaxed and have a good time if you aren’t second-guessing the outfit you threw together at the last minute.
