Why Online Dating Doesn’t Work for Everyone

Online dating doesn’t work for everyone. We can admit it! We’ve seen a lot of dating stories over the years – many happy endings, others not so much.

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.

1. More work means less time to meet people

Are you wondering why it feels like you’re always working? It’s probably because you are, at least compared to earlier generations. Even when we’re not behind the desk, we’re commuting to and from the office (this can take nearly an hour off your day if you live in a major urban centre), responding to work emails at home, and getting to bed early so we’re ready to do it all over again the next day.
