Valentine’s Day is Over. What Now?

Valentine’s Day has passed once again, and whether you felt the bliss of young love or celebrated another Single’s Awareness day, you’re likely feeling a bit of a Valentine’s slump. With all the hype and expectations that come along with the holiday, it’s no wonder we all feel a bit of a letdown once it has passed.


Whether you want to keep the romance alive until next year, or are rocking the single life, we’ve got tips on how to make the most of life until next year other than bingeing on half-price chocolate.


DO: Make time to specifically spend together
Make Saturdays movie day, set aside a couple nights a month to make dinner together, or find your own activity. No matter your interests as a couple, be sure to find time to do them together.

DON’T: Exclude your friends: single or in couples
It can be easy once you’ve found happiness in a relationship to get wrapped up in your own world. However, leaving people out will hurt everyone involved in the long run. Keep up your friendships, and make sure that you still have time to spend as individuals.

DO: What is right for you
If you’re blissfully in love and everything is great, then revel in it. If, however, things aren’t going so well, don’t feel like you have to stay in a relationship that isn’t working just for the sake of being in a relationship. Love is complicated, and no one has it all figured out. Ultimately, you need to be happy.

Single and Loving It

DO: Make the most of your single status
Get out and meet people, take up a hobby you’ve always been interested in, or take yourself out to dinner. You’re single, not dead, so go out and have fun!

DON’T: Get down on the idea of love
So what if you’re unattached right now? That doesn’t mean all hope is lost, and it certainly doesn’t prevent you from experiencing other kinds of love, like friendship and family.

DO: Whatever makes you happy
If you’re loving life, keep up whatever you’re doing, if not, change it up. A lot of people will try to tell you what you should or shouldn’t be doing, but ultimately it comes down to what you want. If you want a relationship, then pursue one. If not, that’s great too.

College Grads More Likely to Get Married

Jeremy Lin Invited to William and Mary Senior Formal via YouTube

Ahh young love. It’s fantastic, isn’t it? You get butterflies in your stomach whenever you see them, your heart pitter-patters, and you might feel weak in your knees. OK, so those symptoms also sound like a really bad illness, but when it’s love, it’s great. Trust me on this one.

But what do you do when the object of your affection is one of the popular kids? Someone who you normally don’t stand a chance of getting? Or even worse, what if your special someone is celebrity basketball player Jeremy Lin?

Lina Yeh, a senior at the College of William and Mary in Virginia found herself in this position. Her senior formal dance was quickly approaching, and all Yeh wanted was to go to the dance with the famous basketball player. Obviously, the odds of Lin showing up on Yeh’s doorstep on the night of the dance were a little slim, so Yeh decided to take matters into her own hands.

Yeh made a hilarious video to convince the basketball star to go with her to the dance. What qualifications does Yeh mention that should convince Lin to go with her? According to the video, Williamsburg is a great party city, she’s a fantastic student, and she’s “kind of a baller,” as in basketball. Sadly, none of these claims are proven to be true in the video, but it really is pretty funny.

Check it out for yourself and then decide if you think Lin should accept Yeh’s invitation to her senior formal.

Tips for Celebrating Valentine’s Day, Based on the Length of Your Relationship

girl and guy sitting on the beachIt’s almost here: Valentine’s Day! Somehow, this day has evolved from the ancient stories about a monk who married couples during a time when marriage was illegal to becoming a pink- and heart-filled day that pressures people in relationship to declare their love and devotion for their significant other.

Personally, I love V-Day, but I do recognize that it has gotten a little out of hand and can leave many people wondering: How should I celebrate this day if I have only been with my significant other for a week/a month/a year, etc.?

Well, if you need tips for the proper Valentine’s Day Celebration, based on the length of your relationship, then look no further. You have come to the right place.

Elementary School Teachers Tie the Knot in Front of Students

It is fairly common for you to hear that teachers devote their whole lives to teaching, students and the schools they work for, but when two teachers decided to have their wedding at the school they teach at, many people where shocked.

The wedding ceremony itself was a complete surprise to the students at Hillcrest Elementary School in Oakland, who heard the sound of the wedding march in June on their last day of school. Students were then shuffled into the schoolyard to see first grade teacher Candace Chang in a wedding dress and the school’s physical education teacher Jesse Inclan for the first time in a suit and tie, and not his typical gym class attire.

How to Find Love on a College Campus

couple loveHow many popular chick-flicks today focus on a happy couple meeting in college, falling in love, and living happily ever after? I have to admit, the majority of my favorite movies have this exact plot line. So, is it any wonder that many students come to college expecting to learn the skills for their future jobs, have a lot of fun, and meet the person of their dreams?

Unfortunately, finding love on a college campus is a little harder than they show on the cinema screen. However, it is not impossible. Follow these tips to find love on a college campus.

Look for love in the right places. Sure, you might meet someone special in a bar, but what are you likely to have in common (except a shared love of tequila, perhaps)? Instead, try to look for someone who shares a similar interest with you. You could join a club or an organization on campus whose members share a passion. If you meet someone in this setting, you will have something to talk about besides which alcohol tastes the best mixed with Coke. Read the rest of this entry »

Hooking Up Versus Dating

What does this couple really think about college dating practices?

Isn’t it sad that we have sex with a guy before we consider dating him?”

One of my friends recently asked me this question. We preceded to discuss it, and determined that, although the random hook-up can be fun, we would prefer to be in a relationship. As it turns out, we are not alone.

A recent study at James Madison University found that college students have twice as many hook-ups as actual dates. And, like my friend and I, most students, male and female, preferred a traditional date to the random hook-up.
