Swamp of love: Do you really want to dance with him?

You’re walking with your girls through Midtown, choosing where to go. Shuck and 101 Cantina look too crowded. You finally choose to go to Grog House Bar & Grill. Inside you start dancing and having a blast with your friends when suddenly you see him. He’s looking straight at you, and walking your way. Do you want to dance with this guy? Is he creepy or smooth? Will this be a bad decision later?

Using social media to meet new people is a growing trend among 20- and 30-somethings. Apps like OkCupid Locals and Blendr let young adults set up instant dates.

Swamp of love: Social media and relationships

You’re scrolling through your Facebook timeline. Someone posts a funny picture of a friend, and another posts a recipe for how to make brownies. Finally you see them -- that dreaded, five-paragraph long post about how much your friend loves his girlfriend or the 18-picture Instagram collage that shows how great the past five months have been with her new love. Suddenly, social media doesn’t seem like much fun anymore.


Gainesvillista: Trending

I have been absolutely loving the trends going on this summer. Usually I am not about always jumping on the bandwagon, but these trends have been styles I have worn for a while.

The Wandering Gator: The last hurrah

Last night the time finally came to say my goodbyes to friends and family before I fly across the pond. In a fitting tribute to America, I hosted a leaving party where guests were on a strict dress code to wear only red, white and blue. 


Bleacher Creatures: Top 5 centers in the NBA

Gainesvillista: LWD

Every girl has heard the term LBD (little black dress). The little black dress has been a staple in every woman's wardrobe forever.  Name one girl who does not own one; I bet you can't. The LBD is not only a classic wardrobe staple, it can make anyone look chic.

Bleacher Creatures: 2014 Gator football schedule breakdown part 1

The 2013 Gator football season was one of the most disappointing in recent memory as the team went 4-8 and ended the year on a seven game losing streak. Now the 2014 campaign lies just a month away presenting an opportunity for the Gators to earn back the respect of both the SEC and the entire country. This is a make or break season for fourth year head coach Will Muschamp, who will most likely be out of a job if the Gators underachieve for the second year in a row.
