14 Times London Tipton Described Dating For Millennials

14 Times London Tipton Described Dating For Millennials

Hi, you don't know me, but we're gonna be married.


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.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
