The dating scene is filled with uniquely modern elements--there's Tinder, Bumble, and countless other dating apps, there's even ChristianMingle. But sometimes the modern ways fall through. Let us turn to the ancient hot singles in your area: the Greek gods. Below find an analysis of Olympic proportions, which of the Greek gods are the most dateable.

1. Zeus

Let's get the obvious ones out of the way first. Zeus, the king of the Greek gods, sucks. Sure, he may be good-looking, and he's got a high-paying job, but he is a major player. Zeus is a constant cheater, not to mention the father of some of the most trouble-making kids in mythology. He's the OG "haha and then what ;)" kind of guy.

Dateability: 0/10

2. Hera

Hera is the kind of partner who seems solid on paper, but could be too much in real life. She is constantly consumed by jealousy due to Zeus' constant cheating, and when she's not trying to kill his other partners she's competing with her godly family for golden apples. However, she is a loyal and committed person, and is literally the god of marriage, so if you're strong and committed, she might be worth it.

Dateability: 5/10

3. Poseidon

If you go for the surfer boy type, Poseidon could be the guy for you. He tends to be one of the less trouble-making gods, he probably has great hair from all the salt spray, and you can hang out with dolphins whenever you want.

Dateability: 6/10

4. Apollo

Apollo is literally the god of the sun, so you know he's hot. He's also the god of music, poetry, medicine, and prophecy. Were you to get a prophecy about your relationship with Apollo, it would say something along the lines of "This will end in tragedy, but it doesn't matter because you won't listen." And it's right. You and Apollo would have a passionate, but ultimately tragic time together, maybe cut short by your father turning you into a tree or a jealous god blowing a discus into your forehead.

Dateability: It doesn't exactly matter, does it? Those sparkling blue eyes invalidate my opinion.

5. Demeter

https://www.instagram.com/p/BOYJ_NegUww/

Demeter is undeniably one of the most underrated of the Greek gods. She's the god of agriculture, characterized by her fierce loyalty and protective nature. She's a single mother who puts what's important first. If you're ready for something committed, your relationship with Demeter would have incredible potential to grow. Also, god of agriculture means god of grain which means god of bread which means lots of access to bread.

Dateability: 9/10

6. Artemis

https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/artemis/

Dude, why? Artemis swore off men, so she doesn't want your company...unless you happen to be a fierce huntress.

Dateability: "0/10"

7. Dionysus

https://twitter.com/search?f=images&vertical=default&q=greek%20god%20dionysus&src=typd

Dionysus is a party boy, pure and simple. God of wine, god of partying, god of drama--if you date Dionysus, you know what you're getting into. If all you want is something fun and casual, Dionysus is your man. Otherwise, spare yourself the trouble.

Dateability: 6/10

8. Hecate

https://www.instagram.com/p/BumShKFnB7s/

Do you prefer partners with a dark side? Hecate is the goddess of magic, witchcraft, night, the moon, ghosts, and necromancy. She's also intense; you'll never want to get on her bad side.

Dateability: 10/10 if you want that goth gf.

9. Hades

https://www.instagram.com/p/BuSu_qrAgln/

If you clicked on this article, you probably already have a crush on Hades. He's that mysterious, brooding, and secretive man of your dreams (or maybe just your Netflix queue). It doesn't hurt that he has ownership over all the wealth and the earth, and an army of souls at his beck and call. But we have to face the facts: Hades will only ever have eyes for Persephone. As much as that loyalty is part of his appeal, it's also the reason none of us would stand a chance.

Dateability: Sorry, I need a minute.

10. Aphrodite

Like Dionysus, Aphrodite would be very much fun and very little commitment. It doesn't hurt that she's the goddess of beauty, either. But here's the thing: Aphrodite is married. She's just a huge cheater. Even if you're not looking for long-term, you're probably not looking for a cheater either.

Dateability: 2/10

11. Hephaestus

https://twitter.com/search?f=images&q=god%20hephaestus&src=typd

Hephaestus is one of the only Greek gods who is canonically ugly. So, that's not great for him, but he does have other positive qualities. He's the god of fire and crafts, and the most skilled blacksmith in the world. He's loyal, a sort of gruffly kind type. But he happens to be the unlucky god married to Aphrodite, so his taste in partners isn't particularly keen.

Dateability: 5/10

12. Nike

https://www.instagram.com/p/BrvkTZoBTIh/

Nike is the goddess of victory, and it would be a victory indeed if you could score a date with her. She's focused, ambitious, and capable. Realistically, none of us are good enough for her.

Dateability: 9/10, but it won't happen.

13. Ares

https://www.instagram.com/p/BkXkLcGHJIX/

Ew, why? Ares is the god of war, do you really want that in one of your relationships? He's also Aphrodite's favorite guy to cheat on Hephaestus with, so that's another situation you'll probably want to avoid.

Dateability: 1/10

14. Athena

https://www.instagram.com/p/BgnxIgEhY7A/

Athena is the goddess you'll always harbor a secret crush on, but know better than to do anything about it. She is another goddess who swore off relationships, and even if she hadn't, she's too good for you. She's too good for all of us--goddess of courage, law, justice, the arts, mathematics, war strategy, and wisdom--she knows better than to involve herself in dating.

Dateability: We can only sigh over what will never be.

15. Hermes

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bujm-3Sl5C0/

Hermes is the messenger god, the patron of shepherds, athletes, merchants, and thieves, and he'll steal your heart all right. If you tended to get crushes on mischievous characters (Peter Pan, Kaz Brekker, any Newsie) Hermes will be irresistible. My only warning: He's flighty. Literally.

Dateablity: 9/10

16. Hestia

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bokxi51j9il/

In your life, there can be relationships that sneak up on you. You may not feel an immediate pull to that person, but over time, your mutual bond can grow to levels you never anticipated, until you don't know what your life would like without them. Hestia is the goddess of the hearth. If you love each other kindly, she'll become your home.

Dateability: ∞/10

If You Have A Project You Want To Grow, Crowdfunding May Be The Answer

The benefits of the crowdfunding phenomenon.

The idea of crowdfunding is exciting, isn't it? A small town poet can use a platform like GoFundMe or Patreon to sell their work directly to those who are looking for it. A community organizer can not only raise funds for an upcoming event, but they can also keep the funds coming in to raise money for the monthly expenses of running their group. A magazine editor can keep their readership engaged through multimedia as well as tangible perks in exchange for tiers of subscription costs.

Crowdfunding makes it so people can combine multiple engagement styles directly with target audiences for a common cause.

What really makes crowdfunding satisfying is getting monetary confirmation that what one is passionate about is supported. Money rules a lot of the world, and receiving money for creating or providing something for others is extremely fulfilling. Different than just going to work and earning a paycheck. Jobs employ workers to create or provide something that has already had a template of origination.

Crowdfunding is running one's own business of creation or providing goods without a bunch of the red tape. In fact, one could say that crowdfunding has allowed sites like Etsy to flourish. One can now make a pretty decent profit just making pins, Mickey ears, necklaces — whatever one can imagine — and get it directly in eyes of those interested. There's nothing to lose in crowdfunding, just the hour or so it may or may not take to set up the site.

Crowdfunding can also be used for temporary things like school funds, funeral funds, and recovery efforts. Need $10,000 to get through a semester at college? Have a sudden death in the family and need $5,000 to pay closing costs and unexpected expenses? Major world disaster like a hurricane or tsunami destroy an entire majorly populated area? GoFundMe is your answer. You'll most likely get twice as much funds then the goal you set.

There's now many crowdfunding sites out there. Outside of GoFundMe, the three biggies are Patreon, Indiegogo, and Kickstarter. So take your pick, make your page, and get some money!

And just in case you're wondering, yes I do have crowdfunding efforts out there for my projects! One for my personal writings, and one for my magazine.

It's Important That We All Are Able To Step Back, Take A Breath, And Enjoy The Little Things

Really think of the good in your life, don't just hit the surface level of it all.

The little things in life no matter where you're at adds up. They can sometimes be few and far in between or just as frequent as us being on our phones almost every day. They are what make us give more thought about life, they are being with friends on a nice summer day, an epiphany, a night stroll, listening to music, going out with friends. These finer points in life are what makes it that much more special.

Taking a breather when things get crazier is easier said than done, but it's something that we sometimes need to do and could help us being able to manage life in the long run. Life is not a cake walk for anyone, and I'm not saying that it'll get easier but just because it doesn't get easier isn't going to stop us from living our best life. Sometimes taking a break is what we need sometimes, and that can come in many forms whether that's taking a chunk out of your day to read outside, go on long walks, hang out with friends, etc. Anything that can positively impact you in a way that helps you be able to have breathing room for yourself.

Once you took a breather, go and think on all of the good that's in your life. I mean really think, not just hit the surface level of it all. Think on the many times you've been hanging out with the exact same group of friends for so long and how they've been there for you and you for them, think on the walks that helped you cleared your head or that you have fun doing just cause, think on the little things such as you doing your hobby, favorite food, etc. Just think of all the things you have that mean so much to you, and how they've changed your life for the better.

We get so stuck trudging through life wishing, hoping for something better, wishing we could have a significant other we could hold on to, taking back a really crappy thing we said, feeling as if we're not going anywhere in life, that sometimes we forget to breathe, take a step back and see clearly the place we're at in our lives. Seeing that we have clothes on our back, food in our bellies, friends, and families we could lean on, and a life that deserves to be lived to its fullest.

Those finer points in life teach us is that the good, wholesome people in our lives or starting to show up in our lives help us get through the days and push us to be better people and that the little things we do that make our lives even a little bit better are what makes life worth living and why we should always appreciate those in our life because we only have one life to live.

Sometimes people don't have those points to look on, and it pains me that not everyone would be able to have that but to those that don't have those points to look on just know there are groups of people that are loving, kind, and good. That if you push on just a little bit longer you'll be able to meet those people and live a life you always wanted whether that's with a small group of friends or a big group.
