In 2016 there are no longer any reasons to keep your dating confined to the ?real world?. While once there was a stigma attached to online dating; that?s long gone and healthy love lives around the world are given their impetus thanks to a string of mobile dating apps. But which apps are the best for meeting somebody? Here?s our guide to the 12 best dating apps currently available to you:
Coffee Meets Bagel
Speed dating, of sorts, comes to the smartphone app with Coffee Meets Bagel. Once the system has told you that you have a match ? you have a week to get talking or they delete the match and they never come up on your list again. While their website brags that hundreds of couples a week meet their match through the app ? we don?t see much advantage to the rushed approach compared to other apps of its type.
Down dispenses with all the pretense of other dating apps and lets you get straight to the point ? do you want a relationship or just a quick bang? If all you need is a hook up then all you have to do is tell the app and it will direct you to others seeking a fun fling and hopefully leave a few less broken hearts along the way. Messaging is limited to people who?ve both hit the ?like? button on each other and there?s a rating system which compares you to everyone else using the app (which can be an ego boost or quite hurtful). With 4 million users globally, Down seems like a pretty safe bet to find a match.
The oldest dating app of them all is for the gay and bisexual and bi-curious gentlemen among us. It?s also one of the most fully-featured apps in the dating sphere thanks to its huge headstart to market compared to many other services. It?s a social network as much as it is a dating app and that means it might be easier to meet a partner (be it temporary or permanent) through general interaction on the app.
As you might expect, HER caters exclusively to a lesbian audience so gentleman please don?t waste your time. Actually, it?s not fair to say it?s exclusively lesbian ? bi-ladies and bi-curious ladies are also welcome. The HER app is much more of an experience than just a dating app and comes with a bunch of feature rich social media and social networking functionality. It?s a classy app for the classy lady looking for love or just some hot sex.
We?re not sure how popular Hinge will be in the long run. It?s a unique take on the dating app which takes your social media data to see how it can create connections between you and ?friends of friends?. That?s great if you?re looking for a serious relationship but might be a serious concern if all you want to do is love ?em and leave ?em. It also provides a much shallower dating pool than [...]
Having a child is supposed to be one of life?s most joyous occasions; yet, so many parents seem to use the occasion to inflict serious cruelty on their bundle of joy that we?re wondering what?s up?
In the Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet, Juliet says; ?A rose by any other name would smell as sweet? and while it might at a quick glance appear to be a phrase about roses ? what?s really happening is that Juliet is complaining about Romeo?s surname. Why? Because their two houses are at war and if he?d not been a ?Montague? the tragedy that ensued in the play would never have taken place.
Today, we?re going to be looking at babies whose parents have been rather crueler than Romeo?s and take a glance at the worst baby names of all time. But before we do?we?d like to talk for a little bit about the results of giving your child a terrible name.
Parents ? They Can Really Mess You Up
Martin Ford was one of the first psychologists to examine the consequences of a terrible name. He concluded that a distinctive and unusual name meant that a child had poor and uneducated parents and that this in turn, reflected the poor performance of such children in schooling. Steven Levitt and Ronald Fryer, two economists found a similar effect when all other variables were accounted for for black children with unique names.
However, there?s also research to show that one of the things that isn?t cruel to children is to give a male child a ?gender ambiguous? name; such as Marion (John Wayne) or Sue (as in the famous Johnny Cash song ?A Boy named Sue). Boys with these names tended to be better adjusted than their peers. The research suggests this is because they learn to laugh off adversity from an early age thanks to being teased about their names. So, in reality ? it is cruel but the cruelty develops character.
The 10 Worst Baby Names Ever for Baby Girls
To get our list of the worst baby names ever; we?ve drawn on a Reddit survey, social security records and a bunch of other lists of names. If your name?s not on the list ? congratulations and if it is please accept our commiserations. So here are the worst baby names for girls:
Ahmircale ? sadly there are over 800 girls bearing the name ?Miracle? which isn?t great but at least it?s sweet. Ahmiracle on the other hand plain sucks.
Aliviyah ? look there?s no advantage to be gained by bad phonetic renditions of original names such as Olivia. It looks crass and adds no ?individuality? except to annoy every person who ever helps them fill in a form.
Beautyful ? illiteracy combined with a potential horror storm of adult unpleasantness if the prophecy turns out to be false, just no.
Beberly ? we?re uncertain as to whether this is a tribute to Justin Bieber or an inability to tell the letters ?b? and ?v? apart; whichever it is ? it?s awful.
Elizabreth ? apart [...]
Mirror, mirror on the wall ? who is the fairest of them all? It?s impossible to say really with the amazing amount of hotness going on around the world at the moment. That?s why we?ve brought you 20 of the hottest female actors under 30 today; in no particular order:
Jennifer Lawrence (1990)
The world?s highest paid actress is also under 30. Jennifer Lawrence is both hot and easily relatable. The star of the Hunger Games and X-men is one of the world?s most popular internet searches too. She?s also a serious talent with three Golden Globes under her belt too.
Emma Watson (1990)
Proving that you can move on from Harry Potter and still be a global sensation; Emma Watson might, however, not be happy to be included on our list. When she?s not acting and promoting universal education access for women ? she?s championing feminist causes. It would be hard to deny Emma?s universal sex appeal on this basis though.
Lea Michele (1986)
It?s just 5 days until the 29th of August when Lea would no longer be eligible for our list; so we?re glad that she?ll be making one of her last pre-30 appearances here. The star of Glee appears to have bounced back from the post-Cory Monteith (her co-star and boyfriend who died of an overdose) blues and her career is on the up again.
Margot Robbie (1990)
Margot Robbie?s role as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad has firmly secured her ?hottest under 30? title ? not that it needed much in the way of securing; she?s been capturing the hearts and minds of the public ever since she appeared opposite Leonardo di Caprio in Wolf of Wall Street.
Emily Browning (1988)
Emily?s role in Sucker Punch is what has brought her to the attention of many but she?s been in plenty of previous hit movies including Lemony Snicket?s A Series of Unfortunate Events back in 2004. She?s not always in the limelight because she?s also studying full-time at university back in Australia.
Holland Roden (1986)
The star of Teen Wolf on MTV Hollen Roden was once hell bent on becoming a surgeon but thankfully today she?s on the small screen and for the moment she?s here to stay.
Alessandra Torresani (1987)
The star of American Horror House, Big Bang Theory and Playback may not be one of the best known actresses in Hollywood but she?s definitely smoking hot and thus she makes our list with comparative ease.
Heather Morris (1987)
Our second Glee cast member, Heather Morris was the bisexual Brittany but she?s now hitting the big screen in a bunch of movies though it remains to be seen if she can make the jump to A-list draw; she?s certainly a big attraction for us.
Emilia Clarke (1986)
One of the biggest stars of the biggest show in the world, Game of Thrones, the English Emilia Clarke is Daenerys Targaryen and needs no real introduction; if you don?t think she?s smoking hot, there?s a dragon which wants a word with you.
Blake Lively (1987)
From the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants to that role in [...]
Let?s be fair about this; it?s never easy to end a relationship and while Paul Simon offers ?50 Ways to Leave Your Lover? in his famous song ? some of his methods seem just a touch cruel. While we may all have been tempted to ?slip out the back, Jack? or ?hop on the bus, Gus? ? it might be better to handle things a bit more diplomatically. So with that in mind, we?ve got 20 ways to leave your lover that will keep your reputation intact:
Own Up To Your Part in the Breakup
That doesn?t mean you need to pull the ?it?s not you, it?s me? line but rather that you take some responsibility for the dissolution of things now. ?I?ve realized that we were drifting apart for some time and I didn?t do anything about it.? Will do nicely.
Give Them Time
While it might seem like a good idea to pack up all their things and throw them out the nearest window; it?s a better idea to give them some notice that things are over and set a time limit for them to get themselves together and to leave your life.
Say Nice Things
The truth is that breakups are often painful and we can let our pain out by describing our partner in all sorts of unflattering terms. It?s better, however, to say nice things about the person ? firstly, because it will make it easier for them to move on and second, because it makes you look like less of a monster to people around you.
Get Out of the Way
Don?t let things turn into a screaming, shouting, mess. Once you?ve delivered the ?we?re done? message ? get out of the way for a while and let your partner process. Sure, they?re going to be angry but you don?t have to add fuel to the fire.
If you?ve got any mutual debts or obligations ? get them paid off as fast as possible. Then try to divide any property that you?ve acquired fairly. This is the part of the breakup when things can get really bitter so go slowly and act sensitively.
Don?t Be Afraid to Ask for Help
If things do get out of control; don?t be scared to involve a personal or professional mediator to help manage the exit process. Things may be rough during the initial part of breaking up but that doesn?t mean you should give up and go back to being miserable.
Don?t Have ?One Last Bang?
Sure, it can be really easy to give in to temptation and have some clingy sex between former lovers but it?s a terrible idea in practice. It sends out mixed messages and particularly to the partner who is on the receiving end of the breakup. Make sure you set boundaries for affection as you move on with your life and stick to those boundaries.
Take Time to Reflect
It can help for you to reflect on your own role in the break up during the break up process. This can help you better state your [...]
The post 20 Ways to Leave Your Lover, Breaking Up Isn?t Hard to Do appeared first on PopCrunch.
There are certain records that tend to appear in certain situations but it might help sometimes if the person spinning the disc actually listened to the words before they played the song. Here are 10 romantic records which aren?t even slightly romantic when it comes down to it:
Usher ? Good Kisser
What could be more romantic than a song about kissing? It practically screams romance to sing ?Your pretty lips leave me so inspired? doesn?t it? Except what?s inspired isn?t so much Usher?s brain as well? his trouser snake. Which is also where he?s going to expect those lips to be any second now. Yeah, Good Kisser isn?t a romance record but it?s perfectly fine for the next time you bring a stripper home to meet your mum.
Extreme ? More than Words
If there?s a classic love song of the 1990s; Extreme?s More than Words would fit the bill right? Wrong. Dead wrong. This isn?t a love song ? it?s a song about sexual frustration. The lyrics might at, a surface level, convince you?re they?re all about walks along the beach and staring into each other?s? eyes, but listen carefully and you?ll discover that the singer doesn?t want to ?hear I love you? but rather expects his date to pony up with ?More than Words?.
John Denver ? Leaving on a Jet Plane
A song in which the writer declares that he hates to go and will be returning with a wedding ring for his beau ? how romantic is that? And that?s exactly what happens in John Denver?s Leaving on a Jet Plane but get to the middle section of the song and ?There?s so many times I?ve let you down, So many times I?ve played around? and yup, what we have is the confession of a serial cheat who?s finally decided to settle for the girl at home. That?s not so romantic ? in fact it kind of sucks.
The Police ? Every Breath You Take
There are few songs which sound so much like a love song but which are a pole apart from conveying any love as famous as The Police?s Every Breath You Take. The song is, in fact, a testament to stalking ?I?ll be watching you? and it?s also a companion song to one of the band?s other smash hits ?Roxanne? which is ? as you might know already ? a paean to prostitution. Yup, it?s a song about stalking a hooker; think about that before you place it on top of your ?favorite songs to woo by? list.
The La?s ? There She Goes
This one has to be a love song, doesn?t it? Well, in fairness it is a love song but not one dedicated to a woman. The ?she? of the title isn?t a girl but rather heroin. It?s a tribute to a man?s relationship with the needle. So unless your bride?s a junkie; this might not be the best song to play at your wedding.
