Dating Trends: Hatfishing

Have you ever gone on a few dates with someone and realized you’ve never actually seen them without their hat on? Congratulations – you’ve been hatfished. It’s when a guy leaves a hat on in all of his photos and on every date, only to reveal later that he’s actually losing ALL of his hair. Hatfishing is the new dating trend, and it’s more common than you think.

Sure, looks aren’t everything. But don’t you want to know up front what you’re working with before you’re shocked later on down the road? If you’ve got a glaring flaw, don’t try to hide it from the people you’re interested in. The right people will look past any flaws anyway and like you for you.

But unfortunately, men are so sensitive about their hair that it’s likely they’ll hatfish you before they actually reveal their thinning or chrome domes. And seriously, when you consider that a study by The American Hair Loss Association shows that two out of every three men will start to lose their hair by the time they’re 35 – they’ll often feel like they took a huge hit to their masculinity when it happens.

Hang in there, baldies! You look great just the way you are (and without the hats)!

Dunkin Donuts Has Donut Fries

Dunkin’ Donuts has been cutting down on its pastry flavors, but they’re still adding newbies to entice us in. Starting with “Donut Fries” - which are basically deep-fried doughnut sticks coated in sugar. They come in a bag of five per order and they had us at deep fried.

The chain has also been quietly testing a snack menu in the Boston area with $2 items like pretzel bites and a waffle-breaded chicken tender. Outside Boston, they chain is now running a sandwich deal, Dunkin’ Go2s, with double breakfast sandwich deals for between $2 and $5 and they’re starting a contest to promote it on April 9 where you can win a gift card.

So when can the rest of the country get their hands on those donut fries? A rep for Dunkin’ says, "The test is designed to gather valuable feedback from consumers, franchisees and their employees to help inform future decisions about a possible national rollout." So we have no idea, but hopefully soon.

Walmart Sells “Funeral Potatoes”

Have you ever heard of “Funeral Potatoes?” Neither had most of the Internet, so everyone was confused when a Walmart Facebook ad for the mysterious bagged item called “Funeral Potatoes” appeared in their feed.

One Twitter user took the ad personally, asking, “Is Facebook’s algorithm threatening me?” But it turns out, Funeral Potatoes are like potatoes au gratin. They’re made from shredded potatoes, onions, butter, cheddar cheese and sour cream, according to the “Wall Street Journal.” And the beloved casserole is a staple at church functions, like funerals, so that’s where the name comes from, but they’re mostly only called that in Utah and other Mormon areas.

But some folks swear they are good enough to die for, or something like that. “They are SO good,” a woman from Utah tweets. “I would baptize a bunch of dead people right now for a plate of funeral potatoes.”

Things You Should Never Throw Away

If you’re trying to declutter your life, you’re going to want to really think about what stays and what goes. You don’t want to get rid of something that could be useful in the long run. If you keep certain items for a while, you’ll end up saving money down the road. Here are twelve things you should really hang on to:

  • Wall paint
  • Furniture
  • Important documents
  • Honey
  • Manuals
  • Hard liquor
  • Cookware
  • First aid kits
  • Mason jars
  • Spare buttons
  • Basic tools
  • Designer pieces

If you hang on to these items, you’ll likely end up thanking yourself later. Things that are durable and last a long time are really good to keep around. Especially if you’re tight on funds (which we totally all are)!

Pennsylvania Couple Weds At Supermarket - A couple decided to exchange vows where they met and now Easter Sunday will always hold special meaning for a newly married couple in suburban Pittsburgh.

Larry Spiering and Becky Smith tied the knot on April 1st at Community Supermarket in Lower Burrell where they first met ten years ago. The two were married in front of about 30 people, including family, friends and customers after Becky finished her usual morning shift at the store.

The pair exchanged vows in aisle 13, where Larry first asked her out a decade ago. A district judge performed the ceremony for the 62-year-old bride and her 69-year-old groom as a customer sang The Carpenters' "We've Only Just Begun."

As the icing on the cake, they chose April because his birthday is the 2ndand hers is the 3rd!
