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?


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.
