10 Things You Definitely Shouldn’t Say In Your Dating Profile If You Want Matches

Posted on Posted in Blog

I once had a dating app bio that said, Still trying to get over my ex-boyfriend, really behind on my rent, and need someone to give me their Hulu password!

, I didn’t get many right swipes.

It’s hard to know what to put in a bio on a dating app, but apparently, it’s what I wrote. While I still have not mastered exactly what does work on a dating app, I definitely know what doesn’t.

So here are 10 things you definitely should NOTput in your dating profile if you want to get matches.

1. I’m Not Good At Bios

Well, clearly. I can tell that from this bio.

You’re better off having no bio than putting this, because this is neither informative, creative, funny.

It’s lazy, and you’re insulting yourself. Hey, what aren’t you good at while we’re at it!

2. I Love Drama!

Because everyone else loves drama SOmuch.

Actually, maybe you should put this. I think it’s really funny.

3. No Short Guys

You’re going to dismiss a whole population of people just because of their height? That’s size-ist.

Guess what? Your soulmate might be 5’8. That means the most incredible man with a fantastic personality, a great job, and who couldbe an amazing father to your future kids, could potentially not message you just because he’s a few inches too short for your liking and you scared him away.

What if a guy hadno brunettes on his profile? You’d think he was an asshole, right?

Don’t be a jerk. Date a short guy. They need love, too.

4. I Love Burning Man

Sepp Dasbach

Going to Burning Man screams, I like to roll around in the dirt, not shower for days, and have orgies next to weird art installations made of scrap metal.

While a bio like this might attract other Burners, it won’t necessarily get you a date with say, a doctor. Maybe save talking about your love of Burning Man for the third date.

5. I Want Babies, Like, Yesterday!

You don’t need to tell the world that your biological clock is ticking. Keep that info to yourself until you’ve been dating for a few months, and it’s appropriate to start talking about kids.

You don’t need to show up to date one with those baby socks you’ve been knitting and a baby book with your first child’s name already picked out.

Slowwww your roll, girl.

6. Let’s Say We Met At The Market

No! How about you don’t start off your relationship with a lie?

You didn’t meet at the market, at a bar, or on an airplane. You met on a dating app. So if you joke that you want to lie and say you met elsewhere, it shows that you’re potentially embarrassed about being on the app and look down on him for being on there, too.

There’s no shame in your game. is on a dating app. In the future, absolutely no one will meet in real life. That’s what technology has done to society.

7. Only Swipe If You Want To Meet Up

Ah, making demands before you’ve even started talking. That’s definitely something that screams, This is the kind of girl I want to be dating.

It’s best not to start off your relationship with an ultimatum. It doesn’t give the best first impression. Instead, why don’t you leave that out of your bio, and once you start talking, say you’d rather meet in person than message?

Yes, there aredifferent and friendlier ways to get the same result.

8. I’m A Princess, So Treat Me Like One

Giphy

Unless you are literally a princess, absolutely do not write this. It basically translates to I am a high-maintenance disaster.

9. You Better Have A Job!

Lumina

If you’re insisting that he has a job, you better have a great job, too. Don’t be slanging some trendy tea on Instagram and insist that the guy you match with be a doctor or an astronaut.

Sometimes, we expect things in our partner that we don’t even have or provide for ourselves. We want our partner to be patient and a good listener, when we’re demanding and refuse to listen to their side of the story.

Don’t only swipe right on supermodel doctors if you, too, are not a supermodel and doctor. It’s good to have standards, but let’s also be realistic here, OK? It’s emotions that count.

10. Aquarius And Introvert!

No one needs to know your astrological sign, how often you sage your house, or your personality type. He can find that out through dating you. And most likely, this will make any guy run for the hills especially if he’s an extroverted Gemini.

Is there anything you suggest putting or not putting in your dating profile? Let me know in the comments.

Families Apologize To Shunned LGBT+ Loved Ones In Heartwrenching New Ad Campaign

Posted on Posted in Blog

A series of LGBT+ focused advertisements by WCRS will soon be streaming on London’s Channel 4 network in honor of their annual Pride in London celebrations, targeting acts of long overdue acceptance.

The footage, broken up into four different segments, along with one main video, brings attention to family members who may have rejected their loved ones for coming out and revealing their true sexuality.

The family members in the video appeardepressed and torn up, ridden with guilt after realizing how their actions affected someone who, at the time, needed them most.

All of the apologiesshowcase each person’s story in its own way:

One man regretssaying hateful things to his son oncehe came out as gay.


A mother apologized for believing her child’s sexuality would keep her from grandchildren.


A woman regrets labeling her loved one’s sexuality as a way to get attention.


A brother says he disassociated himself from his sibling due to a sense of embarrassment.

While the first part of the campaign’s run focused more on hate, drawing attention to the animosity directed toward members of the LGBT+ community, the second part focuses more on love and growth.

At a time when anti-LGBT+ hate crime continues to rise in London, it’s vital that we highlight this problem and encourage all those affected to report it to the Met police, said co-chairman of Pride in London,Alison Camps. But, crucially, this campaign also allows us to look forward with hope, telling the incredible stories of love that make London the thriving and welcoming city we all know.

To help spread love all around, Pride in London is looking for patrons across London to share their thoughts, views, and stories as part of the Love Happens Here campaign.

The Love Happens Here campaign is tied toChannel 4’sspecial programmingseason, commemoratingthe 50th anniversary of the vote led by Parliamentto finally legalize being gay.

We have come a long way in 50 years, yet we face daily reminders that the global battle for true equality is far from over, and rights hard won can be threatened, attacked and taken away, saysIain Walters, deputy director and head of advertising and content at Pride in London. Standing together with Channel 4, we will send a powerful and positive symbol of acceptance, support and friendship.

Coming out is not an easy process, and showing acceptance is somethingthat can never be done too late.

This Is How You Break Hearts, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Posted on Posted in Blog

God & Man

Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

You break hearts when you show someone the time of their lives and then get bored with them two weeks later. People fall in love with your adventurous spirit, but you only give them so much of that for so long. You want to do more, see more, and have fun while you can, and not everyone wants to stay on that ride with you, so you unintentionally break hearts along the way.

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

You break hearts when you let someone get to know you just enough for them to develop strong feelings, and then you close yourself off completely and don’t let them in any further. You’re loyal and you’re always there for people when they need you, but you’re perpetually terrified of getting hurt. You don’t have trouble giving love, you have trouble receiving and accepting it.

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

You break hearts when you send mixed messages. You’re up and down, hot and cold, you’re all over the place and the people you become romantically involved with constantly question whether or not you’re actually interested. You don’t know exactly what you want, but you don’t really feel the need to figure it out either.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You break hearts when you break up with someone because they’re not good enough for your family or friends. Their opinion means the world to you, so if your family doesn’t like the person you’re dating, you completely sabotage the relationship. You know your loved ones have your best interests in mind.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You break hearts when you don’t let the person you’re dating ever have the spotlight. Your significant others fall in love with your boisterous personality that always ends up being the brightest in the room, but you break their heart when you can’t let them have their moments too. You somehow make their important events all about you, and it upsets them.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You break hearts when you stop dating someone for reasons only you and you alone could think of. You’re in your own head a lot and you tend to over-analyze things that aren’t worth over-analyzing. When you break up with people your significant others usually have no idea why, and when you try to explain it to them, they still don’t understand.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You break hearts when you make someone fall madly in love with you, and leave them because you know you’re settling. You’re kind, affectionate, and dependable, but you know you have to be just as fair to yourself as you are to the people you date, and sometimes that means leaving them and the relationship behind.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

You break hearts when you tell people the brutally honest reason as to why you’re dumping them. You value honesty over catering to other people’s sensitivity. You’re not going to sugar coat your breakups. You explain your intentions in relationships from the moment they begin, and you explain your reasoning for why they need to end (even if it hurts them).

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

You break hearts when you decide to accept a job on the other side of the world, without consulting the person you’re dating first. Wandering is your thing, you flourish in new environments, and if the person you’re dating can’t accept that, then you know they’re not for you, and that’s exactly when you break their heart.

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

You break hearts when you let the pressure of life’s timelines get to you. You have a very specific plan of when and how your life is going to play out, which tempts you to make ultimatums with the people you date. If they don’t plan on marrying you before you’re 30, you leave them to find someone who is willing to meet your deadlines and work with your schedule.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

You break hearts when you realize the person you’re dating doesn’t intellectually stimulate you. You need long, deep conversations about your dreams and aspirations, about your purpose in life and the reason for your existence. If the person you’re dating finds that to be too extreme, you’ll move on and find your life’s purpose without them.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

You break hearts when you realize the person you’re dating doesn’t understand the way you express yourself. Whether it’s through art or music or poetry, you don’t expect them to enjoy it as much as you do, but you do expect them to understand that your life wouldn’t be the same without your passion. Self-expression is everything to you, and you break the hearts of those who simply don’t understand that.

What Is Ghost Mode? How To Turn Off Snap Map So You Can Live In Peace

Posted on Posted in Blog

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of the many wonderful and teen ways you can fully utilize Snapchat.From snap sexting, to the ugly AF selfies I send my bestie on my morning commute, it’s my sincere belief that Insta stories will never fully kill Snapchat.

Besides, who in their right mind would upload a nude to Instagram? Not me, because I have some tact, obviously.

Snapchat has this new featurecalled Snap Map, where you can literally see where all of your friends are and what they’re doing. And when I say you can see where they are, I’m talking yes, exact location cross streets and all.

Once youupdate your app to the latest version of Snapchat, you will be prompted to set up location sharing when you go into the Snap Map features. When you first start using it, you can decide if you want friends to see your location, just a few friends to see you, or no one at all. In true snap ghost fashion, if you want to hide from people knowing your whereabouts, you can select ghost mode to opt out of the location tagging.

If you click on the illuminated colors around the map, you can actually click into people’s stories as they’redoing cool things around you.

For reference, here’s a screenshot of fellow Elite Daily editor Katie Corvino and I hanging out on the same street. She’s the lively and beautiful cupcake Bitmoji, and I’m the dark and grim blue shadow (it’s comforting).

Immediately, I can think of about 17,346,346 reasons why this is probably a bad idea. But the dark side of me also realizes how much I wish I had this when I was dating someone who lived outside of the city. Like, I could have done some serious stalking and ended up in a snap story sinkhole of watching his friends’ stories that probably would have ended up in me being mad at him.

Teens these days really do have it all.

But also, like, what about the times when I tell all my friends I’m definitely not going out and they stalk me on Snap Map only to realize that I’m actually out with another group of friends I didn’t want to tell them about?

Also! What about Kylie Jenner?! She already worries about stalkers enough as it is, and I’m sure she’s too busyto realize she needs to turn the map feature off in good ol’ Calabasas.

OK, so now that I’ve psyched myself out enough that I’m definitely never using Snap Map. So once I’ve opted in, how do I go about turning it off?

Well, my friends, let me introduce you to a little thing known as ghost mode.

How To Turn Off Your Location Using Ghost Mode

Brittany Leitner/ Snapchat

Once you’re in camera mode in Snapchat, use two fingers to squeeze the camera screen toward the center. Here is where your Snap Map is located.

There’s me again: ghostly blue figure with three vibrant gal pals surrounding me.

If you look at the top right corner of the map, you’ll see the settings button. Click that to reveal your settings options.

Ghost Mode

Brittany Leitner/Snapchat

As you can see, I have my settings checked so that all of my friends can see my location. Selecting ghost mode ensures that no one not even your friends will be able to keep tabs on your whereabouts or be able to see what you’re up to.

The only Snapchats they will be able to view are the ones you post publicly to your story.

Make sure ghost mode is illuminated in green, and you’re good to go!

Brittany Leitner/Snapchat

Whew. Now you can breathe a breath of relief because you are now free to live your life totally and completely the way nature intended: in solitary, probably with AC blasting, watching an entire season of in one sitting.

Definitely make sure you go invisible if you don’t want friends checking up on you. But maybe limit the amount of people you tell about this, since, well, you still obviously want to keep tabs on them.

This Guy Found A Touching Way To Include GF’s Deceased Father In Proposal

Posted on Posted in Blog

When Brian met Monika, the woman who would one day become his wife, her father had just passed away.

She was distraught. In her own words, to say [she] was broken, lost, and devastated, would be an understatement.

Dating was pretty much the last thing on her mind, as she had essentially given up on the idea of marriage all together. I had pretty much written off the idea of ever getting married after my dad died since he couldn’t walk me down the isle, she wrote on HowHeAsked.

Two years to the day of his passing, she decided to give love and Brian a real shot.

They went for a pretty unconventional first date: her father’s grave.

The two of them sat there, and she told Brian all about how much her dad meant to her and what an amazing father he was.

In that moment, everything changed for her. She knew Brian was the one: I never believed when people said, When you know, you know,’but after this first date of ours, I knew that this was my future husband.

That date took place on August 27, 2016. Just eight short months later, on May 6, 2017, Brian asked her to go back to her father’s grave.

This time, he brought her mom along. Monikadidn’t think anything of it because her momgoes daily.

The three of them were sitting by the grave reminiscing about what an awesome man Monika’sdad was, when Brian dropped down on one knee and popped the question.

Right where her father was buried and right where they fell in love for the first time, Brian asked his girlfriend:

I wanted the two most important people in your life to be a part of this, so I brought you here, where we came on our first date. I knew on that date that you would be my wife, so, Monika, will you marry me?!

Needless to say, she said yes!

The wedding will take place on June 2, 2018, and Monika knows her dad will be there every step of the way that day.

If you’re not crying by now, I’m worried you don’t have a soul.

Should You Give Your Ghoster a Second Chance?

Posted on Posted in Blog

Ghosting: The bad dating behavior so much a part of the lexiconthat even my knows what it is.

I’ve only been ghosted once (which I chronicled in great detail for the internet). Itwas a bit of an imposter-ghosting situation, because he eventually did reach out and explain himself. I mean, I was owed it there was a concert invite he never got back to me about.

He told me I was perfect, but he just stopped feeling the sparks. Ugh. There’s nothing worse than the sting of rejection by someone you weren’t even into. Let’s also just be real: If you ghosted me, you did think I was perfect.

Fast forward to six months later, definitely a littlebuzzed, as I casuallyfollowed him on Instagram.

He immediately slid into my DMs. Yup, DMs. We hada whole let’s catch up on our lives conversation, but weirdly, never texted each other.

One night, I get a DM from him asking, You like Wilco, right?

Well, this is . He ghosted me about a concert, only to waltzback around with another concert invite?

So this is where I pause. What’s the move? Is there a world in which you it’s possible to maintain your self worth whilegiving your ghoster a second chance? Or is rekindling a bad call to make?

Here are some pros and cons weighed out when it comes to giving your ghoster a second chance:

PRO:Youget the satisfaction of him wanting you back.

If you are truly an evolved human being, you do not care as much about winning in dating as I do.

I can’t deny that I was super satisfied when my ghoster came back into the picture, however noncommittal it was.

The validation of a message from someone who made you feel like less than nothing isundeniable. You feel like you’ve won because you now have the power to decide what you want.

The best things about my ghosterwere that he was super smart, hot, and really great at, um, stuff.So, if he was still DTF, there was some sliver ofvalidation in knowing there wassome connection, however tiny it may be.

And let’s remember that I didn’t come crawling back he did.

CON: Letting him back inmeans the possibility of getting hurt again.

If your feelings were on the line the first time in such a way that made the ghosting sting more than just your averagerejection, RUN THE OTHER DIRECTION! Don’t risk feeling badly about yourself again.

Not sure? A great question to ask yourself is: Did I crywhen it happened? Did I dwell on it, then delete his number? Or did I write an article about it?

My answer to that last question makes me sure that even thoughhe wasn’t my soulmate, I should not have gone to that concert with him. My gut told me no.

There’s the easy option of not dealing with a one-time ghoster because he already ghosted you once. Who knows if he’ll decide to do it again and no one wants to deal with a repeat offender.

PRO: There’s still a chanceof it turning into something serious.

So maybe you did have something going with this guy before the ghosting took place but what if it all came down to timing?Did you miss out on your soulmate because of some weird, external event in his life that lead him toleave you high and dry?

Reuniting with him when the dust has settled may allow you both to truly find out if something is possible. If he’s taking initiative to show interest again, he may be interested.

The way the ghost-er handles the reunion has a lot to do with whether or not you’re going to have an easy time of things when you reunite, says relationship and etiquette expert,April Masini. A communicative, apologetic ghost-er who doesn’t make a practice of this has potential for a relationship.

If you feel like he has a great explanation (that doesn’t sound like BS), and you want to know if that connection is still there, give him a shot.

CON: It could be a complete waste of time if you’re not on the same page.

If you liked this guy and you give him that shot, only to realize he’s stringing you along again, it’s going to be painful.Set some boundaries for yourself. If youreunite, find out what he’s looking for immediately.

Make sure you are able to handle the truth otherwise it may bebest to let it go and remind yourself what’s meant to be will be.

Don’t force anything. At the end of the day,think about ghosting and what it says about a person if they’ve done it to you. It’s simply bad manners and a lack of consideration for others.

Ghosting is only appropriate when you’re dealing with someone who’s abusive and you’re fearful, says Masini. But as garden variety bad behavior, it’s simply rude.

Before you get give that ghoster a second chance, think about if they deserve it. Compromising is important in romantic relationships, but when you’ve already been hurt once, you don’t want to end up feeling like you’ve compromised your values.

Every situation is different. Ghosting is too often a blanket term for all sorts of strange dating circumstances,and there are positives and negatives to hearing him out. Make sure to take notice of how your ghoster presents himself. Is he sincere and apologetic, or evasively sliding into your DMs only when he’s drunk?

If it’s the latter, remember that we call them ghosts for a reason they disappear easily so let him go and start swipingfor someone more present.

Protect your heart, first and foremost.

Guys Reveal The Subtle Things They Wish You Knew About Them

Posted on Posted in Blog

You can read as many articles, watch as many movies, and ask as many real people as you want, but there will ALWAYS be things men and women don’t know about each other at the end of the day.

Plus, I have a hard enough time trying to figure out what want, much less decoding literally every aspect of what guys want.

But even when we finally think we’ve got guys all figured out, they drop some truth bombs about them that we may not have realized before.

In a recent Reddit thread, one user asked guys about some of the more understated things women may not know about guys, and these men had a lot to say.

So here are all the ~subtle~ things the men in your life probably wish you knew about them.

A little spoiler: Guys feel things, too.

Everyone likes compliments especially guys!

Men like compliments too, women really don’t seem to get that even when they’re told about it

/u/hereforthebantz

We like getting compliments, too

/u/centurijon

He just wants to relax after a long day.

When I’m in a bad mood or I just had a long day and I walk through the door, Im not in the mood to talk about it. I don’t really want to vent, I just want to turn on my game/tv and relax for an hour.

You may sit/cuddle with me, just don’t bombard me with questions, give me chores or get upset that I’m not responding. That just annoys both of us.

/u/TUKINDZ

His interests aren’t all made up just to get with you.

Sometimes we actually do find out we like the same things. We’re not just trying to impress you or anything. My GF introduced me to tennis and I actually enjoyed it a lot. Cue all her friends thinking I’m just playing tennis to get in her pants.

/u/Destr0p

Just because he doesn’t want sex one time, doesn’t mean he doesn’t wanna bang you all the other times!

If we don’t want to have sex, we’re still attracted to you.

/u/crystalistwo

Guys are real humans with real emotions, no matter how much we don’t believe it.

I’m in my thirties, been in relationships pretty consistently since my teens. I’ve never really had a SO try to cheer me up or make me feel better when I’m having a bad day. Any time I’ve let any of my inner turmoil show, I’ve been scolded or ignored.

I do my best to fix things for my SO when I can, or at least comfort when I can’t. It’s honestly painful knowing I have to try to keep everything inside and not to show any weakness.

It’s been the same with enough women that I get the feeling it isn’t a unique experience.

/u/icannevertell

We’re not your enemy, or animals, or monsters. We’re just the other half of the human race. Things that hurt humans, hurt men too.

/u/SeeEmmDee

I don’t talk about my emotions with most people because I’m not a share with everyone kind of guy. The fact that I don’t want to have a huge emotional heart to heart at the end of my shift at work doesn’t mean I’m a robot.

/u/ElDuderino2112

That we can have emotions and with those,are emotional breakdowns as well. There is always a nitch that we have to be tough and “not caring” 24/7. We have feelings and they need to be heard,understood and cared for. Whether a guy wants to admit it out loud or not.

/u/OakenPrettyBoy8

Sex! Is! Great! But! It’s! Not! The! Only! Thing! Guys! Want!

That a lot of us want more than just sex and fun.

I swear all the girls I’ve gone out on dates with recently are just about that. They like to fuck, and they like to “have fun,” and they want a guy to give them that.

I wish women understood there’s so much more to life that we as men want to experience.

/u/StillNeverNotFresh

Sometimes, it’s best if you don’t press them about what they’re thinking

We really can not be thinking of anything when you ask, or we are thinking of something so monumentally stupid such as which dinosaur is best or pretending we’re spies on a mission.

/u/pajamakitten

Subtleties are not their strong point.

We don’t pick up on subtle hints. Just tell us what you want / how you feel and don’t get mad at us because we “didn’t notice”. We have shit going on in our lives too.

/u/provocateur__

Guys are scared of things just as much as you are.

Men fear, a lot. It does exist, we just learned to cope with as much of a shit tons of anxiety attacks.

So there will be time when we also need someone to hug or a hand to pet our head.

/u/nazgron

Guys they’re broke, just like us!

That we’re not walking bank accounts.

/u/ryaniskira

They’re worried about f*cking things up with you, too.

Despite being attracted to you, we also fear you if we make the wrong move.

/u/KittyHammer

I am literally shook by this realization.

boner in the morning doesnt mean horny. it’s just blockage of blood flow out of the erectile tissue, i.e. blood vessel in the taint got jammed by laying wierd!

/u/ScharlieScheen

It’s totally fine to have different needs.

What I need from you is not exactly the same things you need from me, and that’s ok.

/u/iggybdawg

And of course, there’s this worst-kept secret of all time:

Sometimes, just sometimes, we want to be the little spoon.

/u/lumpypotato1797

So maybe step up and be the big spoon for your guy just once?

Corinne’s Rumored Boyfriend Speaks Out About ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ Controversy

Posted on Posted in Blog

Other than a statement from her lawyer, Corinne Olympios has remained silent since Warner Bros.’ announcement that resume filming following its investigation which found no evidence of sexual misconduct but now herrumored boyfriend is speaking out about the controversy.

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Jordan Gielchinsky, whom Corinne is rumored to have begun dating before leaving for filming, gave the following statement to E! News:

I have known Corinne for over 10 years and as a friend or boyfriend, she will continue to receive my unwavering loyalty and support until I decide that there is a legitimate reason not to give it.

Anything the public may perceive that is coming from me is pure speculation. There is an ongoing inquiry that must follow a course to its conclusion before I can fully comment.

I pay very little attention to the media and try to ignore all the conjecture surrounding my relationship with Corinne. The only two people who know the true disposition of our relationship is Corinne and I.

Elite Daily reached out to Corinne’s team for comment, but did not hear back at time of publication.

On Tuesday, Warner Bros. released a statement, which read,

As we previously stated, we recently became aware of allegations regarding an incident on the set of in Mexico. We take all such allegations seriously. The safety, security and well-being of the cast and crew is our number one concern, and we suspended filming so that the allegations could be investigated immediately and thoroughly.

Our internal investigation, conducted with the assistance of an outside law firm, has now been completed. Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident. We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy. Production on this season of will be resuming, and we plan to implement certain changes to the show’s policies and procedures to enhance and further ensure the safety and security of all participants.

ABC also told Elite Daily,

We appreciate the swift and complete investigation by Warner Bros. into allegations of misconduct on the set of . Given their results, the series will resume production, and will air this summer on ABC.

ABC

DeMario Jackson has not responded to this most recent news, but Corinne’s lawyer, Martin Singer, fired back at Warner Bros. He told ET,

It needs to be made crystal clear that production of was shut down because of multiple complaints received from producers and crew members on the set. It was not shut down due to any complaint filed by Corinne against anyone.

It comes as no surprise that Warner Bros., as a result of its own internal investigation, would state that no wrongdoing had occurred. Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard.

So who is Jordan Gielchinsky?

According to his LinkedIn profile, he is president ofGiel York Tobacco Corporation and lives in Miami, Florida. We don’t know much else about him, other than the fact that he is standing by Corinne amid all the drama of the past several days.

Sources have suggested the pair began dating before Corinne left for Mexico and they had an agreement that she wouldn’t hook up with anyone on the show. She was allegedly only going on the show to gain more attention for her new clothing line.

After filming was suspended, Corinnereleased a statement to TMZ, saying,

I am a victim and have spent the last week trying to make sense of what happened on June 4. Although I have little memory of that night, something bad obviously took place, which I understand is why production on the show has now been suspended and a producer on the show has filed a complaint against the production. As a woman, this is my worst nightmare and it has now become my reality.

As I pursue the details and facts surrounding that night and the immediate days after, I have retained a group of professionals to ensure that what happened on June 4 comes to light and I can continue my life, including hiring an attorney to obtain justice and seeking therapy to begin dealing with the physical and emotional trauma stemming from that evening.

DeMario responded by saying he too had sought out legal counsel. In a statement to E! News, he said,

It’s unfortunate that my character and family name has been assassinated this past week with false claims and malicious allegations. I will be taking swift and appropriate legal action until my name is cleared and, per the advice of legal counsel, will be seeking all available remedies entitled to me under the laws.

Reports claim Jackson was invited to return for filming of season four, but sources say he will not be going back. In an interview with Inside Edition, Jackson said he lost his job as a recruiting consultant over the controversy, and while he doesn’t blame anyone, he is requesting access to the tapes.

Producers have not commented on whether or not all contestants got an invitation back.

It seems highly unlikely Corinne would have any furtherinvolvement in this season of What we do know is, at least forthe time being, is that Gielchinsky is standing by his woman as her team continues to investigate what happened.

I Act Like Im Over You, But The Truth Is I Would Take You Back If You Asked

Posted on Posted in Blog

God & Man

I tell myself that I’ve moved on, because I don’t think about you as much anymore. Because I’ve found the strength to stop myself from sending the first text, from scrolling through your social media, from mentioning you every time I hang out with my friends.

I act like I’m better off without you. Like I’m glad that you’re gone. Like I’ve finally raised my standards and realized that I can do so much better than you.

I’ve managed to live my life without you for so long that I’ve become used to it. I’ve almost forgotten the way that your lips taste, the way your voice sounded, the way that your chest rose and fell as you slept.

I talk to other boys now. I flirt with them like we used to do. Some of them are only welcome distractions, and others are guys that I genuinly like. That I can honestly imagine dating.

That’s why I no longer have the temptation to text you. I no longer type out messages and delete them before sending. I no longer feel the urge to chase after you.

I’m completely and utterly over you. At least, that’s what I tell myself.

But if were the one to contact ? If you broke your silence to admit that you missed me, that you wanted me back in your life?

I don’t think I would be able to say no. I don’t think I would have the gall to ignore your messages, to tell you that it’s a bad idea for us to get back together.

I would text you back, I would let you kiss me, I would fall for you all over again. I would jump right back into the arms of a boy I swear I’ve stopped loving.

I act like I’m over you, but the truth is that I would take you back if you asked. If you put in a little more effort this time and made it clear that you were ready to commit to me.

I would take you back if you admitted that you cared about me as much as I’ve always cared about you. If you told me that you haven’t stopped thinking about me ever since the day we parted and that no other girls compare.

I would take you back if you promised things would be different. If you swore to take me out on romantic dates and introduce me to your parents. If you made an effort to treat me the way you should have treated me the first time around.

I would take you back if you wanted more than a fling, more than a friend, more than a one-night stand. If you wanted to take our relationship seriously. If you wanted to spend the rest of your life with me.

I would take you back if you came back. I would love you all over again — or maybe I’ve never actually stopped.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Going On Birth Control

Posted on Posted in Blog

If you’re a sexually active female that doesn’t want kids, currently or you know, ever, chances are you’ve had some frustrating moments trying to figure out what birth control is right for you.

While there are plenty of options when it comes tobirth control, physicians don’t have the time to go over everything that we should consider. Because of that, when deciding on birth control, it’s important to do your own research.

When I was deciding on the birth control method that I wanted, I knew I never wanted kids, so I opted for a permanent method: a tubal ligation. Before that, I knew hormonal birth control wouldn’t be right for me, as I really hated the side effects (weight gain and mood swings)that came withthe required daily dosage.

It’s clear that the choice to go on birth control, and which birth control to choose, is a completely personal one.

Luckily, you’re not alone when it comes to making the tough decision.

Below, you’ll find a few questions you should ask yourself deciding to go on birth control. There are a lot of factors.

1. How Expensive Is It?

Different birth control methods cost different amounts. In turn, what type of method you choose will impact whether your expense is one-time or on-going.

Things like once-daily oral contraceptives (the Pill) and quarterly shots (Depo-Provera) are charged whenever a renewal is required (so a month for the pill, every three months for the shot, and so on). While it may be covered fully or partially by insurance, you could be looking at up to $50 per month for the Pill, or around $80-100 for something like the patch or shot if it’s not.

Under the Affordable Care Act, all birth control is supposed to be covered by most insurance companies, but that may be subject to change depending on a possible change in thelaw. Either way, an on-going method of birth control will be billed every time you need to re-up.

A longer-term solution, something like a hormonalIUDor implant, won’t be as expensive monthly, but could cost up to $1,000 upfront.

Keep in mind that you’llneed regular check-ups with your gynecologist to make sure your body is healthy and continuing to respond well to your chosen method.

2. Does It Fit My Lifestyle?

Having to take a pill at the same time every day may not be your jam. That said, you may also not be a huge fan of shots or having to insert a ring every month.

When deciding on a birth control, consider whether it will fit your lifestyle overall. If you don’t really like needles, but wouldn’t mind swallowing a pill, then that narrows down your options. You may also want to consider if you’d like a method that will have you visiting the doctor’s office less, like opting foran implant.

You can also think about how reversible your chosen method will be in the future. If you know you’ll want to get pregnant right away, something like a non-hormonal IUD might be right for you.

Ifyou never want to get pregnant at all, you could try something permanent.

3. Will It Interact With Anything I’m Currently Taking?

Unfortunately, this is a question not a lot of women consider before going on hormonal birth control.

If you decide to take the Pill or another hormonal method, be sure to talk to your doctor about whether it will affect any other medication (even natural supplements) you are currently taking. Hormonal birth control can interact with everything from antibiotics to migraine medicines to anti-anxiety and anti-depressing medications.

It can even interact with medicines used to treat things like a common yeast infections.

Be sure to check with your physician about anything you’re currently taking before you decide on a method of birth control.

4. Am I At Risk Of Any Health Conditions?

Certain women may have apersonal history of certain health problems that may make them less thanideal candidates for hormonal birth control.

For example, combined hormonal methods aren’t great for smokers, those who’ve had migraine auras, have diabetes. Birth control can also increase the risk for things like stroke and heart attack by causing blood clots.

Ifyou have a family history of either one, you’ll be putting yourself at even more risk by going on hormonal birth control.

Having a pre-existing health condition that you don’t consider when going on birth control might not just be inconvenient, it could also be a life-threatening decision.

5. Am I OK With Any Possible Side Effects?

Hormonal methods of birth control are notorious for having both good and bad side effects.

Whilethe Pill may cause you to retain water and get seriously moody (like it did to me),it can also help clear up acne and make your PMS a bit easier to deal with. Similarly, the shot can make your period come less often overall, but can also make you nauseous and give you headaches.

Not only that, but if you miss a dose of your daily pill, you could find yourself with spotting or light bleeding.

Before you know it, it could end up lasting for your entire cycle.

While these side effects are only a possibility, it’s important to consider everything that occur once going on birth control.

6. Do I Want A Reversible Method?

Hormonal methods of birth control are generally reversible.

Taking something like an IUD out means you can get pregnant again right away. Similarly, when you get off the Pill, fertility comes back to normal within two to three months.

If you don’t want kids right now, but want them eventually, a reversible method is a good choice. Keep in mind that if you use any kind of reversible hormonal birth control, you’ll still be needing to use a barrier method, like condoms, to protect against STDs.

If you don’t want kids , you may want to consider a permanent method of birth control, like tubal ligation or transcervical sterilization. I knew I never wanted kids and after having a tubal ligation, am became happier knowing I didn’t haveto deal with any regular method of birth control anymore.

Consider what you want in present the future when deciding on your birth control.

Deciding what to do about your birth control plan is a very specific choice as an individual, and no one will be able to make it for you. Only you’ll know what’s best for your body.
