James Preece aka The Dating Guru and Alexander Ziff aka founder of Ciao dating app, say that there are 5 tell-tale signs to look out for when figuring out if someone likes you romantically. Life saver, ammiright?! Hopefully there should be no more awkward-lunge situations or "Oh, I thought we were just friends" convos. 


1. Closing The Gap

If someone likes you, like that, then they'll do their best to break down the personal space between you. This could be touching your arm or moving their chair closer. 

2. Rapid Blinking

"WTF" was our first reaction to this one, but it does make scientific sense. They're blinking more because of the prolonged eye contact combined with excitement which forces their eyes to dry out. 

3. Talking & Teasing Lots

Men are conditioned to boast as an attempt to impress, so if they're showing off more than usual, this could mean they're attracted to you. Both men and women tease as a form of flirting, even in adulthood. 

4. Noticing Little Changes 

Wearing your hair differently? Do they notice? If they do, that means they romantically like you- because they're paying extra attention to the smaller details. 

5. Playing Hard To Get

This is an annoying one, but still a sure sign. They don't want to appear to keen in case they turn you off- try not to count them out straight away if they seem to be playing hard to get.

No-one's perfect, but that's no excuse to be unreasonably jealous. Us girls are out here tryna shake the 'psycho girlfriend' tag, so help the team and reign in your jealous behaviour a little. If you do these 6 things, then you are a jealous girlfriend. And no, not the kind of jealous where it's justified or shows you care, the kind where 'stalker' pops to mind. 


1. You FB Stalk Every Girl He's Dated

...and you stalk them on a regular basis. If you know she went to Paris this weekend, then you've gone way too far. A inquisitive look on your significant other's ex girlfriend's page is normal, not healthy, but normal- to check it daily, and find out even detail about her isn't. There's a reason she's in the past, and that they're not together anymore, so give yourself more credit. 

2. You Check When He's Online

WhatsApp and FB messenger are your BFFs because they tell you when he was last active, and therefore if he's ignoring you. Ok, he shouldn't be avoiding your convos but maybe it's for innocent reasons. Or maybe it's because you're an OTT jealous GF who won't let him live. 

3. You Lie To Make Him Jealous

So in reality the only guy who hit on you today was the homeless dude who hangs around your neighbourhood, but the version you tell him, it may as well have been Brad Pitt's younger, better looking, brother. Or you lie and say your ex has hit you up. He should already know how lucky he is, jealousy isn't the right way to bring that out of him. Would it make you feel lucky if his ex wanted him back? Or would it make you feel insecure and angry? Yeah, thought so. 

4. You Read Into Everything He Does

A friend of mine legitimately uses the 'Find Your Friends' app to stalk her boyfriend's whereabouts. She plans how long his journey home takes to make sure he isn't lying about where he's been. Seriously, not normal or ok. Your other half has a life, and you need to let them live. Imagine how annoying and controlling it would be if someone asked you 100 questions every time you went to the shops.

5. You've Created Fake Profiles 

Please, please, please don't do this. If you don't trust them to this extent then the relationship is never going to work, and you need to call it quits. And work on yourself. Seriously. 

6. You Snoop 

Looked through his phone multiple times? Even rummaged through his trash? Get excited when you get the opportunity to do these things? Then take a long hard look at yourself, because you need a reality check. This is invasion of privacy. This is you ruining the trust, not him.

The green-eyed monster is not a cute look, yes we're all guilty of occasionally getting carried away but if these 6 points are familiar to you, and frequent, then you're an out of control jealous girlfriend. Check yo'self before you wreck yo'self babe.

A girls night out can be truly magical. Much like the nights out in classic noughties chick flicks- think The Sweetest Thing and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days- you never know just what will happen or who'll you'll meet when you're having a good time with your girlfriends. 

On the other hand, there'll be times when despite meeting your [potential] Prince Charming, one or several of your girl gang may inadvertently prevent the sparks from fulling flying. Just to clarify whether you yourself may or may not have gotten in the way of true love or lust, here are some signs you're a major party cock block and seriously need to step up your wing girl game!

1) You're a bad drunk. You may not be a sad drunk but the overwhelming desire to be physically affectionate with all those you set eyes on- cuddles, anyone?- and teetering about in your stilettos doesn't make for a very good case when you assure your bestie she's cool to go home with a handsome stranger.

2) You don't mind when a few members of your squad are getting drinks bought for them and making polite small talk with "generous" gentleman but then again, you've had a shitty day/week/month and this is YOUR time. You desperately need to vent and even though you know it's selfish to demand 110% of your friends' attention for the 3rd night running, you see them not listening to you as major friendship fail.

3) You're always accidentally-on-purpose interrupting conversations between your friends and promising-looking men. Seeing someone animatedly talking away always piques your curiosity, so you head on over and start chipping in your two cents- you just can't help it!

4) On the other hand, you may have a habit of being too keen; none of your friends need you to sidle up and tell them and a stranger they'd make a really attractive coupe or would have super cute kids. WAY TOO SOON.

5) You see that your friend is enjoying herself with a special someone but you can't stomach the idea of being the only one not making any progress. You force your way onto the dance floor where you see them whispering to one another and purposefully encroach upon their space so you don't have to sit around with no-one to pay you compliments. 

6) You and your friend both like the look of the same guy but he appears way more interested in your bestie. His friend, on the other hand, is paying a lot of attention to you and you refuse to humor him with chit chat just so you friend can enjoy her flirtation with Hottie #1. Don't be a killjoy- your time will come.

7) Your BFF's "type" may be far from what you'd consider smokin' hot but keep in mind that just 'cause he may not be your cup of tea, it doesn't mean he isn't a good one! If your pal's giving the man across the bar doe eyes, don't be patronising towards him when he wanders over to say hello. Clearly, she wants some of that- so let her have it. Plz. Also, don't forget that karma can be a real b*tch.

Dear all annoying Facebook couples, 


You may not realise that you're doing it, but hopefully after this article you'll get some home truths. Because you guys are literally the worst. For the love of god no-one cares that it's your two month anniversary, or what you have for dinner every night, or that you really really love each other. We get it. It doesn't make anyone go "awww" more like "why are the so insecure they have to post it everywhere on social medial". Ok, we care if you get engaged, or buy a puppy or have a child, but that's it. And when those events happen, we only need one status and one picture. Okuuur? 

So please, please, stop doing the following things and ruining Facebook for the rest of us:

1) Oversharing. 

You know there's this magical thing called a text message. Did you know that you don't need to tell all your FB friends that you "had the best night ever with my boo". It actually means more if you just tell the person it's aimed at. 

2) Kissing Selfies. 

Please make them stop!! I don't want to see a close up shot of your tongues in each other's mouths. One, on say, your wedding day is acceptable. But a whole album worth from random nights at home isn't. 

3) The On-Off Relationship Updates.

We're not 13 and in school, updating your status to "single" or "complicated" every time you and your beau have a domestic is really unnecessary. Every couple argues, you don't have to tell the whole world about it. 

4) Pet-Names. 

Pet-names should be reserved for the privacy of your own home. Referring to your other half as "my pumpkin", "bae", "angel face", "honey bunny" etc on Facebook is truly vomit inducing. MY EYES. MAKE IT STOP. 

5) Commenting On Everything The Other Does. 

We all know you guys are probably sat next to each other. This isn't benefitting your partner, it's merely you trying to rub it in all your single friend's faces that you're loved up. No-one cares. Seriously.

The first time you see your ex after a break-up is always a big moment. You want them to weep at how good you look. And Bella just acted this dream out IRL, looking as good as humanely possible. 


Seriously, just imagine how good you'd feel. After 10 hours of hair and makeup, oiled up and toned to perfection, in one of the best pieces of lingerie there is. And Abel's reaction is every guy who's ever seen their ex looking fire and regretting their decision. TOO MANY FEELINGS.

Can they just get back together already, please.

32-year-old pop singer Katy Perry and 39-year-old actor Orlando Bloom have called it quits, according to sources close to the couple. After dating for about a year, the pair have decided to go separate ways. 


It seems amicable so far, with neither party admitting who had initiated the breakup. Different sources had different stories to tell though: one friend confided to InTouch Weekly that "Not long after Halloween, Orlando confessed to pals that he'd decided to end their relationship. He claimed that he's just not ready to get married and have babies." However, he was previously married to Miranda Kerr, and has a 5-year-old with her. However, another friend has also come forward with a different explanation: "She said they were on different life paths and as much as she likes him, it's time to move on." 

It seems like while the two were not on the same page romantically, they were on the same page with what was wrong with their relationship. If they both wanted different things, it seems like a mutual breakup - or at least as mutual as a breakup can be. Katy will be relieved to ditch the traffic and not commute to Orlando's house any longer. "My boyfriend lives in Malibu and getting used to that [drive] was, like, 'Are you kidding me? What kind of life is this? There's no pop-over and I never really got used to Malibu 'cause it's halfway to Santa Barbara, so I'm always just going to Santa Barbara then. I get the whole coming to L.A. and living by the beach thing. But it's really … it's so far, nobody is going to come see you." Orlando reportedly missed Katy's 32nd birthday, since he was on set in China filming his new movie. 

A source claimed that "Orlando buried Katy in flowers on her birthday and felt horrible he could not be there for her birthday." Well, you can't blame Katy for cooling on somebody who didn't even see her on her birthday! Besides that, Orlando has been publicly being a creep. 

Although he and Katy were not technically official yet in October '15, they had attended a Met Gala after-party together the week before he was openly flirted with several other women, including very young women. "I don't know Kendall Jenner, but if anyone has her number I would love it," he told the crowd while accepting an award for his UNICEF work, about 19-year-old Kendall. Orlando was 38. 

Besides prowling for Kendall, he was also spotted drunkenly cuddling with 23-year-old Selena Gomez in a club. Hmmm ... it looks like Katy may have dodged a bullet on this one!

Fall is here, which means shorter days and colder weather but could it also be changing our moods? We've all heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder, and people throw it around casually, but it would help if we actually knew the scientific truth behind it and other old wives tales regarding the weather. For example, does the moon really change women's menstrual cycles? 


A lack of sunlight

A lack of sunlight can make you sad, the mood disorder SAD usually affects people from October until April. Which is literally half the year, fab. The lack of sunlight means you produce more melatonin, which makes you feel sleepy, this sleepiness causes your serotonin levels to dip- basically making you sad. All sounding pretty gloomy rn, but there are steps you can take to combat SAD! Buying a UV light therapy box, or setting your lights to a timer so they come on before you wake up (mimicking sunrise). 

Rainy days

Rainy days make you eat more according to Judith Wurtman the co-author of The Serotonin Power Diet. Carbs give you an instant serotonin peak, but this spike doesn't last- they advise reaching for starchy vegetables not the family size chocolate bar. But, let's be honest, now it's scientifically justified, we're gunna use rainy days as an excuse to eat...

A full moon

Nah, you're not going to turn into a werewolf. But is the moon related to our menstrual cycles? Well, apparently not, according to a 2013 study no correlation between the menstrual cycle and moon phases occurred. However, a 1990 study did find that a bright light at night can help regulate periods, so maybe before electricity the moon's phases did have an impact. Anyway, f*ck that, we're going to continue to blame the moon for our mood swings, what does science know...

Sunlight

Sunny weather typically makes us happier, as the SAD side effects explained above don't occur. Studies have found that when the sun in shining people are more helpful and more romantic, however there are negatives. Sunny days make you spend more because we feel positive, and then consequently go a little spending mad.

Mila Kunis, a powerhouse of talent and intelligence, has written an open letter, published on A Plus responding to the sexism she's faced in her industry, and how she's taking a stand. 

She is "done compromising; even more so, I'm done with being compromised", and so are we.

Read the open letter below...

" 'You'll never work in this town again.' A cliché to be sure, but also what a producer threatened when I refused to pose semi-naked on the cover of a men's magazine to promote our film. I was no longer willing to subject myself to a naïve compromise that I had previously been willing to. "I will never work in this town again?" I was livid, I felt objectified, and for the first time in my career I said "no." And guess what? The world didn't end. The film made a lot of money and I did work in this town again, and again, and again. What this producer may never realize is that he spoke aloud the exact fear every woman feels when confronted with gender bias in the workplace. 

It's what we are conditioned to believe — that if we speak up, our livelihoods will be threatened; that standing our ground will lead to our demise. We don't want to be kicked out of the sandbox for being a "bitch." So we compromise our integrity for the sake of maintaining the status quo and hope that change is coming. 

But change is not coming fast enough to help my friends, my peers, or even our children. In fact, a recent study by the American Association of University Women shows that the pay gap is closing at such a slow rate that it will be 136 years before women are paid equally to men. 136 years. And the pay gap is but one clear quantification of the acute undervaluing of the contributions of women in the workplace. 

Throughout my career, there have been moments when I have been insulted, sidelined, paid less, creatively ignored, and otherwise diminished based on my gender. And always, I tried to give people the benefit of the doubt; maybe they knew more, maybe they had more experience, maybe there was something I was missing. I taught myself that to succeed as a woman in this industry I had to play by the rules of the boy's club. But the older I got and the longer I worked in this industry, the more I realized that it's bullshit! And, worse, that I was complicit in allowing it to happen. 

So, I started my own club. I formed a production company with three amazing women. We have been hustling to develop quality television shows with unique voices and perspectives. Since our inception, we have been lucky enough to partner with incredible producers, male and female, who have treated us as true equals and partners. Recently, we signed on to partner with an influential male producer on a project that would shine a light on an important social issue — ironically — inclusivity and our shared human experience. 

In the process of pitching this show to a major network, the typical follow-up emails were sent to executives at this network. In this email chain, this producer chose to email the following: 
 
"And Mila is a mega star. One of biggest actors in Hollywood and soon to be Ashton's wife and baby momma!!!" 

This is the entirety of his email. Factual inaccuracies aside, he reduced my value to nothing more than my relationship to a successful man and my ability to bear children. It ignored my (and my team's) significant creative and logistical contributions. 

We withdrew our involvement in the project. 

 Yes, it is only one small comment. But it's these very comments that women deal with day inand day out in offices, on calls, and in emails — microaggressions that devalue the contributions and worth of hard-working women. 

Subtle gender bias is oftentimes nearly imperceptible, and even wholly undetectable to those who share the bias. It became clear in later emails from this producer that he was totally unaware of why his words were so appalling. What he characterized as a "lighthearted" comment was actually deeply undermining to my contributions and ability to be taken seriously as a creative partner. 

I have no interest in vilifying this man. Blind gender biases are embedded in every facet of our life. They are reinforced by our educational institutions: men dominate the figures we study in history, the luminaries of math and science and technology about whom we learn, and the authors of political discourse we are taught to revere. We are inundated with tales of male superiority that blind us to the architecture of our own relationships. The very word "blind" informs us of everything. No one gets upset when a blind person bumps into a wall, but the wall does not cease to yield force. 

I'm done compromising; even more so, I'm done with being compromised. So from this point forward, when I am confronted with one of these comments, subtle or overt, I will address them head on; I will stop in the moment and do my best to educate. I cannot guarantee that my objections will be taken to heart, but at least now I am part of creating an environment where there is the opportunity for growth. And if my comments fall on deaf ears, I will choose to walk away. 

If this is happening to me, it is happening more aggressively to women everywhere. I am fortunate that I have reached a place that I can stop compromising and stand my ground, without fearing how I will put food on my table. I am also fortunate that I have the platform to talk about this experience in the hope of bringing one more voice to the conversation so that women in the workplace feel a little less alone and more able to push back for themselves. 

I will work in this town again, but I will not work with you."

Is he 'the one'? What even is 'the one'? Is the idea of having a perfect match, one 'love of your life', 'Mr Right' a little outdated? Well, yes, the Disney version is. Hate to break it to you but you're unlikey to find your soul mate the first time round. You'll kiss (bang) a few frogs, settle for a couple of safe bets and get your heart broken by a love rat, but there is still hope. 


Think of 'the one' as being 'the right one' rather than 'the perfect one'. Because there's no such thing as perfect. You're not a Disney Princess- that sounds harsh, but you ain't. Can you talk to animals, swing down buildings by your hair or heal broken legs with your magic locks? Nah, you can't. And if you could you'd hopefully be a superhero not some princess searching for their prince. So, since you're not a Disney Princess, you're not going to find your Prince Charming. 

The one, in reality, is your best friend who you'd happily spend the rest of your life with- there will be fights, tears and heartbreak, but if they're the one you'll both love and support each other through it all. 

1. You Make Sacrifices For Each Other 

You make sacrifices for one another, and your life together, but never try and change each other. 

2. You Feel Comfortable Planning

The thought of planning a holiday with your last fella filled you with dread, but with this one you're happy to make plans months, christ even years, into the future. 

3. You Share Similar Values 

No, this doesn't mean you have to agree on everything. After all, opposites do attract, but only in regards to personality quirks and passions, not core values. If you don't agree on kids/marriage/politics and other big lifestyle factors, then you won't work out. It's all well and good loving one another, but if one of you sees kids as a deal breaker and the other doesn't then maybe it's time to face the music. 

4. Love Is The Easy Party 

He's the one when you realise that being in love is the easy part, and the rest of having a relationship is the hard part. It's the daily squabbles about washing up, bills and who last cleaned the bathroom that take work, if he's the one then the loving and supporting one another is the easy part, and life is the hard bit. 

5. He's Your Bestie 

You tell him everything, you don't keep secrets, you're not embarrassed to express your feelings and he's the first person you want to tell about your day. Grab onto that kind of love, it'll last a lot longer than the dude with really good abs who doesn't care about that amazing sandwich you ate for lunch.

Double dates went out of fashion for a while, but they're back in favour with millennials after dating apps made them cool again- like the app Double, as seen on Dragon's Den, and Tinder's new 'social' feature. We debate in a final showdown, are double dates lame or a fun way to date? 

For 

1) They can diffuse awkwardness. If you're dating someone your friends know or have set you up with, this provides a common ground which can make the first or second date a little less stressful. 

2) If you're in a longterm relationship and so is your BFF, a great way to get your SO's to bond is a double date. You and your girl can gossip, forcing them to make conversation, and before you know it you're the 4 best friend's anyone could have. 

3) New friends. It's always great to meet new people and expand your social circle, so going on double dates with people you don't know that well could open up new possibilities. 

4) This is a pro for you and your BFF, not so much your SO. Double dates are a brilliant way to interrogate your pal's new man, without it being intimidating/super obvious.

Against 

1) Comparisons. Your date turns up late, in old jeans, and a little drunk. Your friend's date arrives in a suit, with flowers and chocolates. Smug pr*cks. 

2) One couple is always waaaaay more PDA than the other. You and your beau just want to eat your spaghetti in peace, not watch a live porno happen across the table.

3) If you or the other couple have an argument, things get a million times more tense. What's protocol if one couple break up? Do you carry on eating the meal? Do you pretend it didn't happen? So many questions, so many potentially awkward situations. We'll pass thanks. 

4) Flirting, with the wrong person. If it's a first double date switches may happen, and that's just plain weird. 

5) You can roll your eyes at your beau, but when your mate's beau is being annoying that's not quite as acceptable. Basically, double dates nine times out of ten are horrible. And a bad idea. 

If you're in a long term relationship and you're already great friends with another couple then it's a lovely thing, but more of a catch up then a double date. First date double dates are never as fun as they sound, trust me.

1. There is no such thing as a "gut instinct". 


Seriously, does anyone actually have those? Because us indecisive people don't, and are extremely sceptical that it's an actual thing. What do you mean you just had a feeling

2. Figuring out where to eat has ruined relationships. 

You and your ex broke up when he finally had enough of you not being able to decide between pizza and pasta. You know that whatever you order won't be right, and you'll wish you went for the other option. When someone asks you "where shall we eat" you literally want to scream at them to make a decision- because you won't, or can't. There's just so much yummy food out there. Just gimme all the foods. 

3. Getting dressed in the morning is a challenge. 

You spend a lot of time just staring aimlessly at your wardrobe. Becoming rich and famous so you can have a stylist to make decisions for you is the only option. 

4. To go out or stay in is a question that ruins your weekend.

Every. God Danm. Weekend. 

5. You ask 10 people what you should do before doing it. 

Getting feedback from all your friends and family makes you feel better about deciding on things. Like whether you should go to the cinema or to the gym. Or if you should leave your job or ask for a promotion. Or whether your partner is the love of your life. I'm kidding, indecisive people don't really leave the fate of their lives up to other people...ok sometimes we do. 

6. Trivial decisions feel like life or death. 

"What ice cream flavour do you want?" is often met with panic, despair, tears, tantrums until your finally settle on vanilla. And then wish you'd got chocolate. 

7. You buy things in every colour. 

Don't know if you want that dress in white, black or navy? To save you the fuss of deciding, you end up buying all three. This is why you're broke. Your indecisiveness is making you poor. 

8. Pros and Cons lists are your BFF.

You make them for everything. And then usually ignore them, because you can't decide if they work or not. 

9. You feel super proud of yourself when you make a decision. 

Well done, you decided what nail varnish colour you want. It didn't take an hour. The manicurist can't work out why you look like you've just won an olympic gold medal, but don't let her quizzical look ruin your moment. 

10. Life is way more complicated then it needs to be. 

At your core you're a people pleaser, and that's why making decisions takes so long. You don't want to upset anyone, or yourself. For small decisions it's not that big a deal, but when you're deciding on something life changing it can make things really, really, really, difficult. 

Do you know how long it took me to decide on 10 points? An indecisive person writing an article on indecisiveness is a recipe for disaster.

First dates are stressful. Especially blind first dates. Or internet/dating app first dates. What to wear, where to meet, what to order, whether to kiss or not. But these aren't the only things you should be worrying about- there are a lot of first date red flags that you should watch out for. Escaping out the bathroom window isn't just something that happens in rom-coms, sometimes it's something you may actually have to do. 


Red Flags Pre-Date 


1. He's "off the grid" 

If someone tells you they don't have social media, or have really really private profiles, then hate to break it to you, but they're probably not single. Also it's just really f*cking rude to not have public social for your potential date and her friends to stalk. How else are we meant to find out everything about you before we even meet? I'm kidding (but not really). 

2. He opens with a d*ck pic. 

Pretty sure everyone knows this red flag, and wouldn't even respond let alone set up a date, but just incase, let me break it down. He's after one thing, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, not everyone dates to meet the love of their life, but pal at least be subtle. 

3. He's SUPER keen. 

Being keen/excited for your first date is lovely and cute, but being super keen isn't. If he's needy before you've even gone on a first date then that's a serious red flag. Run a mile. Or do the modern equivalent of blocking his number. 

4. He flakes out a lot. 

You've planned this upcoming first date three times now. He always has to "work late" or gets a "stomach bug". This may just be a coincidence, but it probably isn't. Maybe he's broke and doesn't want to admit he can't afford drinks, or maybe he's just a f*ck boy and hoping you'll send him a nude without ever meeting. 

Red Flags During-Date 


1. They forget your name. 

If he's mixing up your name then it's probably because he's dating a number of other women. Or if he only calls you things like "hun", he ain't the one. It's one name to learn FFS. 

2. Talks about his ex all night. 

Bringing up an ex on a first day is a big no no, unless it's really vital to a funny anecdote then stay well clear of this. If he brings every conversation back to his ex then get out. He's not over her, and he's basically using you as a free therapist. 

3. Brings up how much they earn. 

He's either bragging or trying to get you to pay his half. Finance chat on a first date is way too heavy. It's basic social etiquette. 

4. Orders for you. 

This is not cute, it's creepy. On a first date there's no way someone knows what taste you have. Three years in it's a sweet gesture that shows how well they know you, three minuets in is controlling and weird. I wanted f*cking red wine not a vodka tonic. 

5. Doesn't go halves. 

This works both ways, if he absolutely won't let you pay your half it gets awkward, or if he assumes you're paying for all of it. Just go Dutch people! 


If any of these happen, your best bet is to run a mile or at least be cautious proceeding. If he sends you a d*ck pic, block/delete his number/name and shame him on Twitter. Go forth and conquer those first dates...
