I'm going out on a limb here: I think Jerry Hall is marrying for love. I would imagine that Rupert Murdoch enjoys being with her, respects her, doesn't wish she were younger, and seems genuinely happy and delighted every day that he is lucky enough to be with her. Which would all be unusual feelings while dating in one's 50s.

The irony is that the plethora of choices is making our head spin, and giving us an even harder time making or sticking to a decision. We are in a constant state of anxiety where we never know if we are doing our best or having the best that we should and must have.

Laura Lifshitz

I'm trying this online dating thing. You see, I'm late 30s and almost officially divorced. As a single mom, I don't have much options meeting men and when I do go out, guys in their mid-20s flock to me. It's sweet but not really practical.

If you're reading this, you're most likely aware that I once decided to go on 30 online dates in 30 days and (over)share my experiences with complete and total strangers. The actual 30-day period took place in the fall of 2013. Why did it take me a full year to begin writing about it? Let's just say it was a rough and bumpy road to recovery.

The Paradoxical World Of Bisexual OKCupid

Frankie Thomas | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Frankie Thomas

The queer world still exists apart -- discrete, you might say -- from the straight world, and to be a bisexual woman on OKCupid is to travel back and forth between them, bicoastal, bilingual, bicultural, always apologizing to one on behalf of the other.

How to Tell Your Tinder Date You Had Cancer

H. Alan Scott

Before I got cancer, I thought dating was hard. Then I turned 30, got sick, and quickly learned that dating with cancer is an entirely different game. For the first time in my life, I wasn't choosy. It's hard to be picky when you're dating with cancer; you're more focused on living and less focused on his third nipple.

Becca Wolinsky | Posted 06.03.2015 | Women
Becca Wolinsky

if you ghost someone, it implies that you think that the other person likes you so so much and is going to be crushed if you aren't interested. We probably all would like to think this, but chances are it's not true. Rejecting someone is hard, but just rip the bandaid off and do it already.

As a new year's resolution for 2015, I decided I was going to quit Facebook. I knew it would be hard, especially because someone once told me that my friends and I were the "most well-documented group of people on Facebook." Three months down the line, I've learned a few interesting things...

Do not ask the other person how many OkCupid dates he/she has been on. If you're on your first OkCupid date and announce that, you may come across as a noob, and if it is your fifteenth OkCupid date, like it was for me, well, we all know why that is embarrassing.
