Dating & Hookup website is being overhauled. We will be back at you soon with more great, provocative content and brand new multimedia developments. We’re excited. Please stay tuned!
You need two people in order to make a seesaw work. Real, honest-to-goodness love is like that. So don’t put your life on hold for someone who doesn’t get how seesaws work.
Struggling with jealousy issues? Then just stop being jealous. It’s easier than you think!
Some people grow up and change their ways. And some people just don’t.
New game! See if you can spot the good advice hidden among lots of not-great advice!
Sometimes an apology is necessary. If you’re not exactly sure what to say, when to say it or even how, here’s a little refresher.
Hey, you know what? You should have coffee with people who want to have coffee with you. Move on from the people that don’t.
When it seems as though nothing ever goes right in your love life, it can be tempting to think, “I’ll never fall in love.” But before you make that kind of claim, remember: you can’t see the future. And things could be looking up.

Hey, it’s a cliche for a reason.
I mean…heartache is real. The worst is when your mind is taken off of it for a moment, and when you remember, it’s like a punch in the gut. OUCH. Also when you fall out of the tree in front of your ex’s place while spying on him in a rom com also looks pretty painful.
It’s true. If a watched pot never boils (MORE CLICHES), then focusing all your energy on finding a partner ain’t gonna happen either. You don’t have to be THE COOL GIRL, but have a little faith that it what’s meant to be happen without you running interference.
Butterflies are real and they are a great appetite suppressant, amiright?
As it is with most good things in life, there aren’t shortcuts to finding happy, long-lasting, relationship-type love. But this advice might help you along the way.
Apparently I was trying to dole out hard hitting advice about love, relationships, and dating…before I even had any experience with any of it. I found a journal of writing from seventh grade and uncovered a plethora of early essays and self reflection. For the most part it’s cringe worthy, but also somewhat endearing. One of my favorite finds is an attempted humor piece entitled, “The Do’s And Don’t When You Meet a Boy.” It should be noted that I was at an all-girls school at the time. I have transcribed it for your entertainment:
datingandhookup.com is a website that explores modern romance in the Millennial era – which, let’s be honest, looks nothing like we were taught to expect. We feature essays, advice and social commentary with humor, compassion and brains, and we vow never, ever to publish a piece called “The 10 Best Ways to Satisfy Your Man in Bed”. Do click to submit your work to us. We love you.
