Tinder Launches Festival Mode To Aid In Concertgoer Hookups
Most folks go to music festivals to enjoy countless hours of great music, but there are probably plenty out there secretly hoping they may meet someone cute and get a little lucky. Well, Tinder is about to make that a little easier.
The hookup app has just launched what they’re calling Festival Mode, which allows users to add a badge to their profile revealing the music festivals they plan to attend. The badges will roll out about three weeks before a festival, which means before the big weekend, users will be able to match and chat with others going to the same fest.
While Coachella may be over already, the app launched yesterday, and will be in full effect in time for such fests as Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Las Vegas, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Faster Horses, Hangout Fest, All Points East, Firefly, the UK’s British Summer Time and more.
Folks Are Hiring Donkeys To Serve Beer At Weddings
There’s no doubt most weddings are far from traditional these days, with couples going out of their way to make their big day unique. Well, apparently there’s a new wedding trend gaining steam in parts of the country and it involves, of all things, donkeys.
That’s right, couples in Texas and California have started adding what are being called “beer burros” to their wedding, donkeys who roam around an event serving beer and snacks to guests, and, of course, posing for the occasional Instagram photo.
The company Texas Hill Country Events in Wimberley, Texas are responsible for the “beer burros” trend, with the company having eight burros in their heard, including two named John Wayne and Annie Oakley. Each donkey carries around six to 12 beers in custom-made pack saddles, and will great guests upon arrival, and also pose for pictures with the bride and groom.
As for how much they cost, it will set you back $575 for the event, plus fees if the event is 30 miles away from their ranch.
People Prefer Drinks Because Of How They Feel, Not How They Taste:Plenty of people are partial to certain beverages, say like coffee, beer, even diet soda, but it turns out that preference may have nothing to do with taste.
A study out of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago finds that people enjoy certain beverages based on how they make them feel, not necessarily how they taste. It seems folks who like drinks that are bitter, like coffee, beer, and red wine or sweet, like sugar-sweetened beverages, like them because of genes that trigger emotional responses, not the taste gene.
When participants were asked why they preferred these sort of drinks, coffee and soda drinkers cited the euphoric feeling in caffeine, while those who liked alcohol, said it was due to its calming effect. Source:NBC News
Parents Offer The Age Kids Are Ready For Big Milestones
It definitely takes a lot for parents to finally see their kids as more than just their babies, and deciding what age is right for their first anything isn’t always easy. Well, now a new survey reveals the ages most parents feel are appropriate for their kids “firsts” and it may show you how bad you really are at letting go.
The survey finds that it’s the moms who are mainly responsible for deciding when their child can have their first anything, with 78% of moms saying they are the decision makers in the household.
These days, the one thing most kids probably hound their parents about most is getting their first cellphone, and the study finds that for most parents, 12-and-a-half is the age they will trust kids to have their own phone. But even though they are ready for a phone, apparently they aren’t ready to stay home alone, with most parents saying they won’t leave their kid home alone unsupervised until they are 13.
Other appropriate ages for “firsts” include:
- Use the Internet (with supervision) - 9 years
- Dress themselves - 7 years
- Get their first job/earn their own money - 13 years
- Pack their own lunch - 11 years
- Study independently for a test - 10-and-a-half years
- Wash and fold their own clothes - 12 years
‘Trickle Ghosting’ is The Latest Cruel Dating Trend
Add this one to your sad dating dictionary: trickle ghosting. The term entered the lexicon of heartbreak thanks to a viral Reddit post on Wednesday. Its original poster shared that her partner of four years had all of a sudden slowed down his communication with he — to a trickle — only getting back to her every couple days. The “trickle ghosting” behavior, which lasted about two months, was even worse than plain old ghosting, where a love interest disappears altogether. The woman eventually reached out to a friend about her ex’s behavior — and was surprised to learn he had told all their friends that they had broken up. To make matters worse, he was also cheating on her, the poster wrote.

Will You Ever Find “The One”? Science Says Probably Not
According to research published in Personal Relationships. Having a “destiny mindset” means holding the belief that there’s one person out there who’s perfect for you and who you’re meant to be with. Because of this, you’re likely to develop ideas about what that person should look/be like, and this can seriously hold you back in the love department. Those who have a “destiny mindset” are said to be very black and white. Either they’re in the most perfect relationship ever because they’re with the person they believe to be their soulmate or they find their partner so lacking when it comes to meeting the ideal they had in their head that they’re miserable, even if they could technically have a great relationship. When you have an idea of “The One” in your head, chances are you won’t entertain anyone who doesn’t possess every characteristic on your lengthy checklist.
- Are you guilty of having a destiny mindset and have built up to big of a fantasy about your perfect partner? Is this why you’re still single?
