¿Más de 30 y soltero? Lo mejor que te puede pasar es Tinder — Tinder es "estúpido y dañino, no hace más que entorpecer las relaciones sentimentales". También es "una fábrica, y no puedes pretender algo romántico ni ahí". Y no olvidemos que " la consecuencia adulta de vivir con nuestras propias elecciones casi no existe cuando la mejor opción está a una compatibilidad de distancia."

If You're Over 30 And Single, You Should Be Using Tinder — Tinder is " stupid and harmful because it only makes romantic human connection harder." It is also " a factory and you shouldn't pretend it's even vaguely romantic." And let's not forget that " the adult consequence of living with one's decisions doesn't really exist when the next best thing is only a swipe away."

Michael Keaton's Son Wrote "Talk Dirty" And "Heart Attack" — Sean's last name is Douglas because that's Keaton's real last name. (He uses Keaton because Michael Douglas was already famous when he started acting.) The song was written for singer Nikki Williams, but Williams' label didn't like it. After Lovato recorded it, "Heart Attack" went double platinum. 3.

Georgette Mosbacher Observes Christopher Buckley — Georgette Mosbacher's Fifth Avenue apartment is directly across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and from the huge windows of her living room-where there is a life-size drawing of herself hanging above the baby grand piano, and fur throws on two settees across the room, and trinkets (decorative knives, feathers, paperweights, commemorative seals) arranged on a console, and photographs and chandeliers and Oriental rugs and velvet and mirrors-one can watch the small figures milling about on the steps of the museum.

Why Choosing Your Own Adventure Can Really Pay Off — The Choose Your Own Adventure books that you remember from childhood are now published by a small female-owned company in northern Vermont, led by publisher Shannon Gilligan. After the books, which were originally published by Bantam, went out of print, Gilligan started Chooseco in 2003.

Eu tinha certeza de que congelar meus óvulos resolveria tudo — Não sei dizer o exato momento em que comecei a pensar se eu era capaz de ter filhos, mas isso ocorreu em algum momento entre fevereiro de 2012, quando o cara que eu estava saindo nos últimos meses terminou comigo, e maio de 2012, quando fiz 35 anos, porque após essa idade toda mulher solteira de Nova York sabe que ninguém nunca vai te amar.

How To Pitch Personal Essays To BuzzFeed Ideas — Ask yourself: Is this something that is either a) taboo yet relatable that no one has ever articulated as well as you can, b) an experience SO crazy and foreign that people will feel compelled to share it, or c) a really big idea from the vantage point of the only person who could have had that perspective.
