15 Reasons Why Modern Dating Sucks

I read somewhere recently that Modern Dating should actually be called the "hook-up game", and that made me realize more than ever that Modern Dating sucks. Why can't we go back to the old fashioned dating ways, and do things the right way instead of just "talking" to someone just to hook up with them. Please enjoy these real life struggles of Modern Dating.

1. You do not spend enough time getting to know each other before jumping into a relationship.

It can be considered the "cool thing" to do.

2. The person who cares less has every last drop of the power.

I mean who really wants to be the one more interested. But seriously. What ever happened to two people caring deeply for each other.

3. Phone calls?

What. Are. Those. Who even makes phone calls anymore. Honestly, I would prefer a phone call over a text, but I guess that is just me.

4. "Let's chill" or "Wanna hang out?"

AKA - "Let's hook up." Literally, ew.

5. People are scared of commitment.

Which means they'll stay in a relationship without labels until it all comes crashing down.

6. Social media makes it more tempting and easier to cheat.

Nothing more needs to be said on this.

7. No text back?

That text definitely went through.

8. Plenty of people will not care very much about your relationship.

They will go after you significant other regardless.

10. Being dumped is awful.

They'll probably take the easy was out and dump you by sending you a text message.

11. Your creep level is definitely associated with how attractive you are.

It is the sad, sad truth that is in Modern Dating.

12. You are either going to break up or stay together forever.

Okay, this one can really go with any kind of dating but it can still suck either way.

13. Telling people how you really feel is too difficult.

Usually people will just send you a song or quote that kind of expresses how they may or may not feel about you.

12. F. O. M. O.

The fear of missing out. That is all.

13. Immediately responding to a text is considered a sin.

You have to wait at least twice as long as they did anymore.

14. We have ridiculously high expectations of what a relationship is supposed to be like because of social media.

Because who does not want the typical Tumblr-esque relationship.

15. People are not as moral as they used to be.

It really stinks, but that is how our culture is.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
