When Do You Tell Your Date You're a Feminist?

“You can’t curse, it’s not lady like.”I was so stunned by the statement, I actually took a moment to think carefully about my response. I’d been seeing this guy for just over 2 months and this wasn’t the first battle of wits we’d had. After a pause I calmly explained that, as a person I was free to curse at will and that if he felt it was offensive he was free to state that, but at no time was he going to tell me that I couldn’t curse because I was a girl....more

Fascinating and Unique Wedding Photographs:

1.) Something that most couples don't do is have their entire weddings, photographs and all, be styled after a certain theme. Not only could this be very interesting and fun, but it would be unique - fiances could decide between many different themes of their liking, several examples being the epic Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Divergent, Harry Potter, and Hunger Games. This way, they could live inside a fantasy during one of the most special moments of their lives!...more
