Maybe the date says something racist or is way too overtly sexual or has political beliefs that are offensive to you. Maybe he takes out dental floss and cleans his teeth at the table, in front of you, and flicks a piece of chewed bread onto your plate of pasta. Read more

How to deal when your mom won’t butt out of your love life

You won’t believe how often I hear the sentence, “Ugh, you won’t believe what my mother just did!” followed by a massive eye roll. All the time! And you might think that I’m spending a large amount of time with teen girls. But, I’m not. I’m hearing this complaint and seeing those ginormous eye rolls from fully grown women.
