Would You Accept This Red Flag? Clare Stood Up Her Dates Last Night On 'The Bachelorette'

Don't get me wrong, we definitely saw some red flags from Clare in episodes one and two of this season of "The Bachelorette," but after (spoiler alert) Yosef got sent home last night, she's quickly become the villain of her own season, waving some pretty bright red flags we can no longer ignore.

To get more specific, last night Chris Harrison told the guys they'd all be getting dates after Clare canceled the cocktail party following the fight with Yosef (please let this be the last time I have to think about this a**hole). Unfortunately for the men, Clare also ended up completely ditching the first group date she promised them. Yes, that's right, she stood up the men who were supposed to have a fun day with her and showed up hours later without an apology (or a reason).

If someone didn't contact you to reschedule your date and showed up hours later without a reason or an apology, would you accept that red flag?

If you ask me, this would absolutely be a no from me. Sure I've said that every week, but I'd rather be single than sit around wasting time on anyone who 1. — continues to slide into people's DMs while dating me, 2. — calls me crazy for having feelings, or 3. — stands me up on a date because they didn't feel like coming (like... sweet, sweet).

Friends, never settle, OK? Seriously... this season is a mess for so many reasons, but the red flags just keep coming and I beg you to watch out for these in your own dating lives. For real.

Last week was no better, honestly. After Yosef called Clare crazy for feeling a certain way about something, I could not stop cringing. According to our Instagram poll results, 79% of you weren't happy with it either and the other 21% said it wasn't a dealbreaker, that it was fine to call her crazy... to each their own, I guess.

No matter what red flags from the last few episodes would be dealbreakers for you, I think we can probably all agree this season has been off to a rocky start. Thankfully, the teasers for next week look like Tayshia Adams will sweep in and save us all next Thursday (because of the 2020 Election on Tuesday, AH).

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
