Do you believe that attractive women can't find love? I recently read an MSN article titled "This woman says she's 'too good looking' to get a boyfriend." It was about a millennial woman that believes her appearance is the reason that is stopping her from a man taking her seriously.

As a parent of three young women, I always thought I would know exactly what type of person they would bring home.

As of 2014, for the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18 to 34 are more likely to be living in their parents' home than with a spouse or partner in their own household. According to their research, this turn of events is fueled primarily by the dramatic drop in millennials who are choosing to settle down romantically before age 35, but also by larger economic issues.

This means you can no longer send (or receive) copied and pasted complex, multi-syllable words in text form to the person you're chatting up. You actually have to use your words and your voice to articulate what you're saying, similar to having a real conversation. Remember, those days?

Complaining to your coupled friends or shouting into the abyss on Twitter about how tacky Valentine's Day does no one any good. Instead, commiserate with like-minded haters for a few minutes, and then move on. Because the truth of the matter is this: not every holiday is going to apply to you, ever.

That's what my dad asked when I told him I had found the one. He was only half-joking. I think. I'm currently in a long-distance relationship with a girl of Caucasian descent, otherwise known as a vella pettai. We consistently have issues that we need to work around.

My Headphones Aren't A Barrier, They're My Lifeline

Despite retaining my "anti social in style" persona, I've been interrupted more times than I can count by men telling me to take off my headphones so that they can talk to me. There have been times when they have literally jumped in front of me and blocked my path so that we could just "have a conversation" (and it's always the same one). The whole interaction is not just annoying; it often borders on invasive.

No matter how independent, self-reliant, and strong we are, sometimes there's a part of us that wants to self-destruct. Usually, after a traumatic experience, when we feel especially vulnerable, scared, and alone. And after the devastating breakup with my fiancé and boyfriend/best friend of nine years, I self-destructed in a big way.

Even if you've been chatting on various dating apps such as Tinder or Zoosk, meeting an actual human being in the flesh is completely different than online banter. The skills that make us good at online communication don't translate into the real world, and "relationships" online can have very little to do with real-life connections.
