If he seems to be moving on at the speed of light, consider this. My last big breakup was almost three years ago. It was horrible (we never spoke again), and I grieved in a big way. I vented to my friends constantly, I wrote—and I cried, like, a lot. Meanwhile, my ex-boyfriend had a new girlfriend within six weeks and another one right after her. (Yes, I kept tabs on his social media for much longer than I should have.
Seven things to do (besides dating more) that will improve your dating life. The experts say that you’re more attractive when you appear to be engaged with the world, confident, and living a full life. Hence, a lot of dating advice out there today centers around the idea of self-love and just, well, having fun. And it makes total sense! People like people who like themselves. The attraction of confidence goes both ways.
Being ‘the last single girl’ can be a dream, not a nightmare. I am about to tell you a crazy fact about me that you may not believe is true: Two summers ago I went on a road trip from New York to Maine for Labor Day weekend with three couples—and me. I was the literal seventh wheel for an entire long weekend. Now, I love each and every person present on that trip dearly, but I would rather spend the rest of my life in line at the post office than endure such a “vacation” again.
Nothing more disappointing than looking up a hot Canadian freestyle skier, seeing he only has like 9k followers on Instagram, imagining our future together, then being rudely affronted with photos of his supportive girlfriend. #olympics

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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
