14 Times London Tipton Described Dating For Millennials

Dating as a millennial is either really easy or really complicated. Some meet the perfect person in high school and they just do life with them forever: they go away to the same college, get a job in the same town, get married, buy a house together and eventually start a family. They'll never know the mid-to-late-twenties frantic search for a husband because they've been dating the same person since they were fifteen. For the other 98% of us, finding a soulmate is not that easy. Maybe we've broken up with our high school sweethearts or have just never found the right person, but it sure is complicated. Almost as complicated as the life of one specific heiress, the fictional London Tipton. London's life might have seemed easy, but she certainly enjoyed her fair share of drama. Here's fourteen times London Tipton accurately described millennial dating life.

1. The perfect stranger

On more than one occasion, I've seen someone repeatedly, either in a class or around town who was just irresistibly perfect: so perfect that I would marry them right there. In fact, I had multiple scenarios in my head that included me walking up and starting a conversation. This may have never actually happened, but oh well, a girl can dream right?

2. Seeing all of your friends in relationships

...and then wondering why you can't even get asked to go out on one nice coffee date. It could be a blind date or even a Tinder match at this point, I don't care. Girl's nights are getting boring with no guy stories to tell-- especially when all of your friends have at least one.

3. Meeting the single guy friends of your friends

You can't forget to not-so-subtly let them all know that you're available, especially that cute one who's BFF's with your BFFs' boyfriend! A match made in heaven, if I do say so myself!

4. Trudging back to your exes in defeat

Okay, we've all done it. We all have that one ex/old flame that just didn't work out, and we all will try to go back to them during a dry spell in the romance department. It's just a part of life, and your friends will all likely call you stupid. (But, they mean it in a loving way, and you know that!)

5. When you finally download Tinder and get Super Liked within the first 15 minutes

Yay! Some random guy within a 15-20 mile radius of you thinks you're attractive! Odds are, he'll never message you anyway and you'll be too scared to message him, so this won't really matter that much. On the bright side, it'll give your deflated ego a much needed boost.

6. Hearing about *all* of the presents your friend's boyfriends buy them...

...and then thinking to yourself that you'd never make a guy buy you all of these clothes and candles and accessories. A bouquet of flowers and a pizza would make you happy for like, three months. Where are all the guys looking for low maintenance girlfriends?

7. When you start to think your bad dating luck has to do with your physical attributes

To be honest, this couldn't be farther from the truth. Mr. Right will not care what you weigh, and he will make that clear from the second he meets you. Go for a jog, but only if you want to. Never let any guy tell you how you should look.

8. Finally getting asked on that coffee date

Okay, your friend set you up with one of the guys in her Bio lab, but it's fine, you're still getting a latte and get to look cute! Yay, you!

9. When your friends get skeptical about your scheduled meet up with a Tinder match

I mean, geez, can't they let you live a little? They go out on dates by themselves all of the time, what's the big deal about you finally doing your hair and leaving your room?

10. Not realizing he's just not that into you

You should be used to it by now, I mean the words "unrequited love" pretty much sum up the first few years of your dating life. This guy is different, however, and you really thought it would work out. Oh well, time to start swiping again!

11. After you discover your ex has moved on for good, and she's prettier than you

It can come as quite a shock, especially if they were your fallback option if you were to turn 28 and still be single. Let's face it, you thought that without you, they would be forever.

12. When you aim much too low-- and realize it

I mean, honestly, props to you for being able to decide what's good for you and what's not, especially in your state of loneliness.

13. Going on a date with that guy who's way too brainy

Intelligence is a good thing, but sometimes it's refreshing to have simple conversations, and this guy is clearly not capable of that. He reminds you of a robot.

14. When you finally remember there's nothing like your girlfriends

Sure, guys are cool and your friends all may have one right now, but that doesn't mean that a relationship or looking for one is more important than your friends. If you're feeling defeated, gather your best gals for a movie night with two men you all love: Ben and Jerry, and remember that you won't be alone forever. You're young, enjoy the single life and wait for the right person.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.

The Ultimate Guide To Being A Latinx And Hispanic Community Ally

Educate and celebrate their culture to lift the community up.


It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.

It was a day we all knew would possibly come but hoped it never would. The day the outbreak hit.

I remember, back in March, I was just about to return home from a socially distanced vacation in my Florida home with my mom and grandpa, when my dad called to tell us he was feeling sick. At the time, President Trump hadn't closed the borders, my school was still going back after Easter, and sheer panic hadn't yet flooded our news outlets. We were meant to return home on Saturday, but when the borders closed on Thursday, things got a little more serious.

These 10 Oversized Graphic Tees Are JUST As Cute As Urban Outfitters — And They're All Under $30

There is never a bad time to get some new oversized graphic tees, especially when they're all under $30.


While we all love Urban Outfitters' graphic tees, it can be hard to justify a $40 T-shirt, so I am always on the hunt to find cheaper alternatives that are just as stylish! Thrifting is always an option for authentic, vintage tees, but we don't always have the time to search through the endless aisles of Goodwill.

Lucky for you, there are still affordable alternatives that don't require quite as much effort.
