Three months ago, I met a stranger and ran away to Portugal with him for nine days. I had been single for four years – so single in fact, that I even attempted to make a career out of it (please see all blog posts pre-April 2017). I was like the Taylor Swift of the […]

The decade that dating died.

With over 50 million users on Tinder alone, millennials are living the death of organic dating. Thatโ€™s right. Kiss goodbye to impromptu drink offers from that hottie at the bar, and save yourself the exhaustion of IRL flirting โ€“ because finding love has become a task reserved for cyber space.
