Snapchat filters are one of the most entertaining and educational pastimes which subsequently grace your significant other with countless incoming Snapchat notifications. But each filter has its own unique style that are better than others at getting your point cross. So, here are what the 10 Snapchat filters you're using and sending to bae are really conveying.

1. The Flower Child

The filter that can make you look good literally at any point of the day, so this is the go-to snap when you are still in the honeymoon stage and need to send a "Good morning" snap.

2. The Derp

When your boy/girl is being sincere and says you are beautiful, but you still don't know how to take a compliment so, instead, you respond with this and a simple, "I know."

3. The Butterfly Halo

When the sass is at its all-time high and you must remind your bae that you are, indeed, a queen with a, "I am a goddess who is also (butter)fly as hell."

4. The Random Animal

The type of animal always changes, but, nevertheless, it always has little fuzzy ears, a button nose and long af eyelashes. But really this filter is used just to boost your confidence and send to bae for affirmation.

5. The Trippy One

The *I am drunk and I need you to know just how drunk I am* "LOOK THERE ARE FOUR OF ME!" filter.

6. The Dog Face

The all-time classic, so really this is just one of those bored snaps you send bae in the middle of your lecture.

7. The Dancing Object

The snap used to send when you are impatiently waiting for them to pick you up. (Even though they are literally only 3 seconds late and you were 33 minutes late yesterday…) But instead of being an adult and waiting, you send him/her 10 consecutive snap videos of your face with a hotdog body dancing.

8. The Nerdy Bear

The filter to remind them just how lucky they are that you are both smart and beautiful. You're welcome.

9. The Distorted One

The filter you send when you both know that you're being unreasonable but are not about to change, so instead you send this snap with the message, "But you're stuck with me so HA."

10. The Bug

Aka the filter used to send your significant other when the 'puppy eyes' are just not big enough and you just really want them to bring you food. BUG eyes are a must when it comes to getting your Chipotle.

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.
