'The Perfect Date' Looks Like Another Predictable Teen Rom-Com But... Noah Centineo, So I'm Still Gonna Watch It

Noah Centineo is back again in another Netflix Original, this time under the realms of being the "perfect boyfriend." And yet again, looks exactly like another cliche, predictable, teen heartthrob Netflix Original.

But I'm definitely still going to be watching it.

The recently announced Netflix original, "The Perfect Boyfriend," stars Centineo along with Laura Marano and Camila Mendes.

I'll break it down.

Noah Centineo plays the main character, Brooks Ratigan, who naturally, is the very non-popular, works in a sub shop, a teenage boy who just trying to find a way to go to college and score the most popular girl. Oh, also the school he's trying to get to is Yale, of course!

Of course.

While overhearing the conversation of presumably a popular kid in school about getting paid to accompany his cousin to a school dance, Centineo's character jumps in with the bold request of volunteering to go to the dance instead, for his pay. Laura Marano plays that cousin.

Assumably, Centineo's and Marano's characters seem to spark absolutely nothing and Marano's character inspires Centineo to create an app where anyone can create the perfect stand-in boyfriend for any occasion.

Naturally, Centineo's character is hoping to eventually score a date with the most popular girl who is played by none other than the always stunning, Camila Mendes.

Thus creating, basically the whole premise for the movie.

Truth be told, I feel like you could basically get an entire feel for what the movie is after seeing it's casting the main roles with Noah Centineo and Camila Mendes.

As someone who's a fan of both Centineo and Mendes for their own works, it's quite comical to see the comments rolling in for people who love to hate on all the work they've done. To some extent, I can agree to disagree with everything being said.

Noah Centineo is your grade-A typical boy who, most could say, is quite attractive. He's been in two majorly well-known movies within the past year, so might as well add this one to the list.

And don't even get me started on Camila Mendes! I don't know what show people have more fun hating on than they do "Riverdale" it's insane. All jokes and hate aside, Camila Mendes is so naturally gorgeous it almost hurts. But her and Noah Centineo in a movie together and we'll see what we get.

For now, we just have to wait short of a couple of weeks. "The Perfect Date" will be available on Netflix starting April 12!

In the meantime, can we talk about "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" again? We miss you, Lara Jean! (P.S. There is a sequel coming!)

I'm so proud of Demi Lovato's new, powerful breakup ballad, "Still Have Me." After her split from fiancé Max Ehrich, she is pulling herself out from the darkness, picking up the shattered pieces, and realizing that she's got this. If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

Many people want to help when they learn someone they know is going through or has been through, a rough period in life. The issue lies in the right way to approach the situation without making it worse. These encounters, whether they be continuous or a single conversation, are never easy. It's okay to feel discomfort and to question whether or not you're handling it properly.

There are a few things I've found to be mostly universal in theory (if not in full thought) from the person going through a tough time. I hope this brings some understanding and perspective for the next time you have a sit down with someone you care for.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.


Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.
