Things that Piss Off an NYC Girl

Surprise: I’m a bit of a diva. I try not to be, but I’m very specific about things I like, things I don’t like, and things that just really piss me off.

First Date Tips for Guys and Girls











I know, I know! I haven’t blogged in weeks… I suck. I admit it. Now get over it. I’m back and better than ever.

I keep thinking about first dates. Probably because most of my friends are single and going on lots of first dates, probably because I keep watching lame rom-coms, who knows. I just have been. I’ve also found myself often discussing/ debating first date do’s and don’ts. As any good writer would do, I just had to share these insights with the masses. Behold, first date tips for guys and girls (conveniently listed by critical categories): Read the rest of this entry
