Dating 2011: Is being single silly?
1 May 2011 | TIGER PRINT
tags: culture, dating, young professional
For some reason, all the single chicks in movies are the losers or pitied, unless of course they are those independent women who are hot enough to have casual sexual partners every weekend. Are these really the ideas we want young girls to live by - that single is weird unless you’re having regular sex? Not to mention the fact that this reduces entire relationships to only their physical component...

Ladies, a bar may not be the best place to start when looking for a decent guy.

Dating 2011: The Facebook relationship
18 Apr 2011 | TIGER PRINT

Primary school proms - the next big thing.

Golden oldies
14 Oct 2010 | TIGER PRINT
Recently, I have had a “growth spurt” (so to speak) in my dealings with the elderly. They are a group of people that had never really grabbed my attention before, since they didn’t seem to be relevant to my life, right? However, I think this is the way too many young people feel.
