7 RuPaul Sayings To Get You Through Online Dating

7 RuPaul Sayings To Get You Through Online Dating

"May the best [online dater], win!"

There may be LIGHT paraphrasing.

1. “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?”

Alright so this is probably RuPaul’s most iconic and important tagline to date. It speaks for itself honestly. Everything starts with YOU. Don’t even download the app if you don’t love you some you enough to be confident.

2. “Now, bring back my ~girls~.!?”

I made the end of that full of punctuation because Ru says it differently every time. Maybe you’ve been swiping or scrolling and you accidentally skipped over someone and can’t go back (unless you haven’t run out of shakes on Bumble and can still go back one). If you say this phrase to your phone, more than likely, nothing will happen. However, you will feel slightly accomplished and...at least you tried.

3. “Sashay, away.”


4. “Shante, you stay.”

Perhaps you’re alone for the third night in a row and are swiping through Tinder or Bumble or are perusing through Grindr or eHarmony (how does eHarmony work?). Being that you’ve had no human contact for a couple days, you’re talking to yourself by now. So, as you swipe right or respond to a slightly demeaning message (depends on the app), you may vocalize the phrase. Trust me, it’ll be a lot more fun.

5. “She done already done had herses.”

Maybe you are greeted on one of these apps by an UNSOLICITED and very revealing photo. This may lead you to believe that “she done already done had herses” (applicable to all genders) because if they send that as their first message, this probably isn’t their first rodeo.

6. “The library is open.”

This will signify to your pals as you group Tinder (or whatever) that it is time to review the possible candidates who received a “Shante, you stay.” Here, you will shamelessly discuss potential partners. BE NICE!


Do you have a semi-regular hookup that you only contact via online dating apps? Do you not want anyone to know who they are? Confide in a close friend who they are, and explain that they will now be known as “IVY WINTERS!” Boom. Your metaphorical incognito browser is officially open.

There’s more, trust me there’s more, but this should get you started. Watch the show and create some of your own ;)

Good luck my friends, and don't BLEEP it up.

8 Short Facts All Girls Under 5'2" Have Accepted, And No, We're Not Armrests

But where are all the petite models?

Throughout elementary school, I was one of the tallest people in my class. Then, somewhere around the seventh grade, I achieved what was to be my final height: five feet and two inches... short by anyone's standards.

1. Somehow, we always seem to get stuck behind the tallest people in the movie theater.

Cue two straight hours of craning our necks, leaning from side-to-side, and stuffing any available jackets underneath us in some vain attempt to see. Extreme frustration is inevitable.

2. ‘Cute’ and ‘Fun-Size’ are just about the last things we want to be called.

Puppies are cute. Babies are cute. But no, short girls should never be referred to as cute. We are all keenly aware of our diminutive stature, and the constant comparison to other small things is unwelcome.

3. Until the fashion-industry embraces height-diversity, we will never be models.

As someone who would love nothing more than to strut down the catwalk, I lament this fact daily. Petite models FTW!

4. Heels are a must, if for no other reason than to be at the same level as our peers.

I firmly believe that I could win an Olympic medal in track and field… while wearing stilettos.

5. Most of the time, we look like children dressing up in our mom's clothes.

Finding a pair of jeans that actually fit is akin to finding a unicorn. Seriously, though. Why are the pant legs always so long? If anyone ever finds jeans that don't require cuffing at the ankle, please contact me immediately.

6. Closets are the devil’s instruments.

I mean, seriously, who needs drawers that high up? I keep a step-stool on hand for this very reason.

7. In that same vein, reaching equipment at the gym is an endless struggle.

I will forever be searching for weight machines created especially for the vertically-challenged among us...

8. Our heads are NOT to be used as armrests.

An open plea from us short folks to the giants of the world: our skulls absolutely do not appreciate having your forearms atop them. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this matter.

Despite our shortcomings, however, (pun absolutely intended) short girls get to see the world through our own unique lens, and I, for one, wouldn't trade my height for the world.

Hey, besides… the kids section is so much cheaper!

My Soulmate

You are the one I want now and forever.

Before I met you, I was under the illusion of love.

Before I met you, finding the right man was what I always think of.

After I met you, I was ready to give you my all.

After I met you, into love for you, I fall.

Now, I call you my soul mate,

Because with you I saturate.

Like every couple, we argue,

But never imagine my life without you.

You are the one I want now and forever.

The one who takes me out of illusion,

And make my disillusion.

For your love, Soul Mate, I will fight whenever.

Forever in your arms, I want to stay.

Hold me tight, make me your one and only.

Teach me to love more, day by day.

Keep me from being lonely.
