DEAR KELLY: Recently I went bowling for my friend’s birthday. We met some really cute guys who were bowling next to us. We had fun with them then all went out again the next night. One guy and I totally seemed to connect, so we started Snapchatting each other pretty regularly. I told my some of friends I really liked him. Two weeks ago, we met at a coffee shop and just talked and hung out. He introduced me to his dog, and I really started liking him after that.
DEAR KELLY: Recently my friends and I were going out and there was like four cars and we were going to follow each other and hang out. We all met before for food and then we were going to all ride together. Me and one of the guys had a thing kinda so I assumed I would be in his car. But when we went to get in he told me his car was full and there was no room for me and I had to ride in another car.
DEAR KELLY: My best friend and my best guy friend recently became a couple. It is bad for me because anytime I’m hanging with them, I’m third wheel because they hold hands and call each other “babe” in front of me. When I told my best friend that it was hard for me because I feel like I lost my two best friends because they are always together, she got really salty with me. She told me that I should have spoken up before they got together.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
