However, over the last year or so we started getting closer. This time it felt different. It felt right. It felt like things were finally coming together.

Love was all I ever needed, and today, I’m so proud to say that #LoveWins.

By: Margot Carmichael Lester

If you’ve been dating online for more than a couple of days, you know there are some seriously hackneyed phrases that get bandied about by less-than-creative souls. The problem with these overused words is that they not only mask the real person behind them, they’re an immediate turnoff to readers. When you don’t put energy and creativity into your profile, it conveys that you may not put energy and creativity into your love life as a whole. In fact, some daters do as Judy Lederman of New Rochelle, NY, does: She won’t even respond to profiles with clichés. “Puh-leeze,” she exclaims. “They’re repulsive.”  Read more…
