One Date Doesn't Mean You're Committed

It's okay to go on multiple dates in search of that perfect someone, don't be pressured into commitment.

One Date Doesn't Mean You're Committed

Lately, I have been searching high and low for the perfect guy. While in search for the perfect guy I have talked to multiple ones, most of the time, at the same time. I like to think of this as if you're buying an apple in the store, you have to search through multiple ones before you find the perfect one.

Sometimes, I feel like I am losing myself in this process. Until I come along bumps in the road which remind me who I am. But most of the time more than ever, boys think after I go on one date with them, that I am committed to them. Ladies, it's okay to go on multiple dates to find the right one. But never lead them on and make them think you like them more than you do.

Recently I ran into a situation exactly like this and I met them one time and never hung out with them after that. They proceeded to think I was committed to them and that I wasn't allowed to go on another date with a guy. I also wasn't "allowed" to think other boys were attractive. No one should ever be told what they can, or can't do, in their love life from someone else. If you want to go on multiple dates to find the right one then go for it. If you only want to talk to one person at a time, that's okay! Just never forget who you are along the way.

Other people need to stop thinking that one date means commitment. We're young, we make mistakes, we need to live our life to the fullest. We don't need to devote all of our time to one person, unless, we most desperately need to. Don't let someone pressure you into commitment if you're not ready for it.

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.

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.
