How did you meet that special someone? Maybe you bumped into them with your grocery cart or mixed up your drinks at Starbucks. Or maybe it was less serendipitous. Maybe you risked humiliation by approaching a beautiful stranger at a bar or worked with someone for years before finally having a real conversation with them. When it comes to love and attraction, the beauty of a shared human experience is that no matter how vastly different we all are, our brains still react in similar ways when Mr. or Mrs.Read More

Being a 20 something or even a 30 something will be the most challenging time during the lifespan of a normal human being. During this era of ‘growing up’ a lot of milestones occur right after another like a quick succession of strobe lights that leave viewers confused. Typically, most of the ‘big’ things concern events that usually are within reasonable control. Apartment hunting, buying furniture for the first time, paying utility bills (hot showers have a whole new dimension now) budgeting or trying not to spend the first measlyRead More

Dear New Boyfriend, Among all of the things, for which I am grateful to you, I’d first like to thank you for, consistently, placing the toilet seat back to its proper position; down. Thank you for turning off the light, as you leave a room and thank you for not leaving the cupboard, closet, refrigerator, sliding glass or front door open. These are just a few ways you show that you are not a child, but a man. And when I say man, I mean to say one who understandsRead More

If you’ve caught a woman outsideRead More
At least 95% of my life is awkward. It has become the norm, so much so that when things go smoothly, I am genuinely surprised. It’s a miracle if I make it through a day without tripping, saying something inappropriate, or inadvertently causing a problem. Some situations are hopeless; awkwardness is inherent and there is no way to avoid it. These are my 5 everyday most awkward encounters: 1. The Sidewalk Shuffle Nothing is more painful than figuring out which way you’re going to move to dodge an oncoming person.Read More
Because I knew him first as Jimmy from Degrassi, I was hesitant to take Drake seriously when it came to his hip-hop career. All I could focus on was this one episode where he raps at school in his wheelchair and it just played over and over again in my mind. I thought his attempt to make it in the game was laughable; he grew up acting on a Canadian TV show, not selling crack on the corner. Assuming his rap career had a close expiration date, I dismissed DrakeRead More
