Rules About Dating That Are Outdated

Someone’s always going to have “wisdom” to share about your dating life – whether you want it or not. But the thing about advice? While it can be good, it’s too often outdated or just plain no good. You don’t have to listen to everything everyone tells you about your dating life. Here are some of the main rules that are seriously outdated:

  • The three-date rule – You don’t have to wait for three dates in to make a move on someone you’re interested in.
  • Going out on a “real” date – Netflix and chilling can totally be considered a date these days. You don’t always have to go to restaurant or out to a movie.
  • Saying no to last minute dates – If you get a last minute date offer, take it if you want! There’s no reason to turn down someone who’s just trying to juggle their schedule.
  • Allowing the other person to pay – It’s not always clear who should pay on the first date, so it’s always good to offer at least your portion.
  • Not kissing on the first date – Sometimes kissing is a great way to figure out if you have chemistry with someone. Kiss away!

Our parents and even grandparents have some wacky ideas about how things should go in the dating world. But the reality is, things are different now. There are tons of outdated rules that simply no longer apply to our lives. Kiss on the first date. Netflix and chill every once in a while. And for the love of all that is good, feel free to ghost someone who’s being disrespectful to you.

Why Being Nice to Your Partner Barely Even Matters

Don’t worry about being nice to your partner when times get tough. Just don’t be a total jerk, scientists say.

New research from Baylor University finds that refraining from being a complete jerk toward your significant other is more important than actually being nice to them during stressful times.

In a bar-lowering survey of 325 couples and 154 partnered individuals, study authors discovered that negative behaviors, such as blaming your partner, “tend to trigger more intense and immediate responses” than, say, showing support when the going gets rough.

“When people face stressful life events, they are especially sensitive to negative behavior, such as when a partner seems to be argumentative, overly emotional, withdrawn or fails to do something that was expected,” study author and psychology professor Keith Sanford, Ph.D., says in a press release.

“In contrast, they’re less sensitive to positive behavior, such as giving each other comfort.”

Go forth and do the bare minimum.

Increase Your Chances Of Having Your Lost Phone Returned By Doing This...

It’s no secret that these days most people are addicted to their phones. So, as you can imagine, losing your phone is probably pretty heartbreaking for people, and it turns out summer is a particularly bad time for folks and their phones.

According to a new report by tech company Asurion, summer months see more than a 50% jump in smartphone loss and theft, but it turns out there’s one thing we could all be doing that may increase our chances of getting that lost phone back.

Asurion purposefully “lost” smartphones in three major cities and found that phones that were locked, but featured a person’s contact information on the lock screen, were three times more likely to be returned to their owners than those without contact info. Unfortunately, not a lot of folks do it, with only 25% of people putting their contact info on the lock screen.

So, how do you put your contact info on your lock screen? Well, all you have to do is add your info to any photo, and Asurion suggests the easiest way to do it is to take an Instagram Story using a photo of your choosing, add your info, and then download the image and make it your lock screen. 

  • ONE MORE THING! The company also suggests enabling your phone’s “Find My Phone” feature, which many people think is automatically activated, but it’s not. For iPhone, all you need to do is go into your settings, and for Android, you need to download the Google app Find My Device.

Maybe don't bring crystal meth to jury duty?

Next time you visit a courthouse, it's probably a good idea to make sure you're not carrying contraband.

A woman in New Port Richey reported for jury duty but ended up doing time in jail instead when she brought crystal meth and cocaine into the courthouse.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, 39-year-old Kristine Victoria Mittler set off security alarms at the West Pasco Judicial Center when she reported for duty earlier this week. A search revealed two foil packets of cocaine in her pocket and a straw that tested positive for methamphetamine.

Mittler admitted the stash was hers but said she forgot she had it with her.

She was taken to the Pasco County Jail.


TGI Fridays Has All-Day Happy Hour Now

Applebee’s has been bringing customers in the door with their string of Dollarita deals and now TGI Fridays is getting in the discounted booze game, too. But instead of dollar-priced cocktails, they’re going big and offering an all-day happy hour menu with items priced at just $5.

Fridays’ happy hour menu includes four cocktails, draft beers and some wine options. Look for the Frozen Blue Hawaiian, a Long Island Iced Tea, and margaritas, which were best-sellers over at Applebees with their $1 price tag, although some question the quality of the Dollaritas, so hopefully these $5 versions will be better. Fridays is also adding some $5 food options, including warm pretzels, chicken quesadillas, cheeseburger sliders, and giant onion rings.

The new all-day happy hour menu starts this week at TGI Fridays and it’s a permanent addition, not a limited-time offer. So it doesn’t matter if it’s five o’clock somewhere, you can always get a deal there.
