Why you really should consider dating a feminist

by Published: Apr 23, 2014

I am here to tell you there is much more to feminism than just angry women who sit around talking down on men and discussing hairy legs.

These women know what they want; they’re confident and strong in everything they do. A feminist mindset is about achieving greatness and being an individual. They have an “idgaf” attitude and there’s a slim chance you’ll make them feel like a victim any time soon. They’re also open to going “dutch,” which means you won’t always have to pay. (more…)

Be better than your breakup

by Published: Apr 9, 2014

Eventually, all good things must end. After a breakup, we feel vulnerable, sad and maybe a little wild with the newfound freedom. When you’re fresh out of a relationship, always remember the following rules of breakup etiquette.

Every time you think of your ex, don’t call or text him or her. I’m sure he or she would love to hear what brings back memories, but please, refrain from telling your ex. The two of you need space, not to be thinking of each other all the time. (more…)

 
 

Campus Pride

LGBT community to celebrate Pride Week on campus

Modern Love

Have you ever been on a date and the guy didn’t offer to pay? Has a girl ever presumptively slid the check over to you?

We’ve all been there at some point. Besides cluing me in to the fact your bank account is probably a sorry sight, it also shows you’re not a very kind or respectful person. What happened to chivalry, or even common courtesy? (more…)
