Everything I’ve Learned From Watching the Last 10 Seasons of The Bachelor/Bachelorette


Hello readers! As another season in the never-ending The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise is about to end, I thought I’d compile some of the highlights of covering the past 10 seasons. (I’m a little late to the game. There have actually been 19 seasons of The Bachelor and 11 seasons of The Bachelorette. Yes, 40 seasons. 40.) […]

The Fight Club Rules of Texting

The first rule of text messaging is: there is no text messaging.
The second rule of text messaging is: there is no text messaging.
The third rule of text messaging is: when someone stops replying, starts evading conversations, the messaging is over.
The fourth rule of text messaging is: no more than one thread of conversation at a time.

Tinder and St. Vincent


We chat about Tinder and he makes a good point- that the app is just a game. How many matches can you make, how many points can you score. It has nothing to do with love. Why do you think when you make a match it says,
Send Message Or Keep Playing.
Keep Playing. Good point. It’s all right there in those two words. It’s a good playing field for me because I don’t want a boyfriend, I just like to kick the ball around from time to time. But for others… Maybe this isn’t right.

Tinder and Las Vegas – Tinder At Your Own Risk


I change my tagline.
“Toronto girl in Vegas for the week. I like craps. (The game.)”
If you think people have a lot of drinks in their profile pictures in your city, you should see it here. How do dudes even stay sober-ish long enough to still get it up? I make some matches, of which I have a few faves. First fave: the dude who looks like Seth Meyers. (Obvi. How would you NOT swipe right to that?) The second runner up is a dude who looks like a dude, who I really liked.

Would You Swipe Right If He Admits He Watches the Bachelor?


Before I actually take this guy home basically because he watches The Bachelor, I decide to test him to make sure it’s not just a line. A really, really effective line.
“Soooooo, if you really watch The Bachelor, what’s the Bachelor’s nick name?”
“His name is Chris. Same as the host.”
K, that’s not the answer I was looking for. I was obviously looking for “Prince Farming,” but his answer is still totally acceptable, plus adding in the hosts name proves he’s probably seen more than one season.

Finding a Single Guy Who Watches the Bachelor on Tinder? Swipe Right


“Sorry. I just have to message my roommate and make sure he’s taping The Bachelor.”
It’s still early. He’s a really awesome guy. And while I don’t usually invite Tinders over to my place, it’s still early. We could actually watch it together. And that way I could bust him if this is just a line he uses with the ladies. (Which clearly works.)
“Well, I really want to watch The Bachelor too. We could always go to my place and watch it…”

We barely finish our beers before they have to be off the table. We walk outside. Before I flag a cab, I’m definitely gonna grab that bald head and kiss it. After a powerful make-out session, he asks,

“So… what happens now?”
