It’s 2015, and I don’t’ seem to find myself on the list of “5 First Date Looks That Don’t Look Like You Tried, But Totally Fool Him.” (Yes that exists.)
So I feel like I’m decently into social media. Social media is a huge part of my job. I live for the news, I know what issues are occurring in the field of public health, and I might possibly admit to spending a least an hour this past week looking at “Call me Caitlyn ” posts.
But when I manage to get sucked into a Buzzfeed quiz or read some colossally huge list from Elite Daily, I can’t help but look at some of the suggested posts or ads.
For example, after magically getting redirected to a post entitled: “30 and Not Pregnant: How My Biological Clock Is Freaking Me Out”, I noticed an ad showcasing a nice selection of wedding rings at the bottom of the page. Because before we become saggy old spinsters with dusty wombs, we should at least strive for marriage, right? Also was suggested to look at: “How Long You Wait, Statistically, Determines How Long You Date,” “12 things men find unattractive in women,” and “10 ways to be the girlfriend he needs.” Wonderful
Shout out to the sites that avoid these kinds of lists, but as a woman who wants more than a ring, here are the lists I’d like to see published.
Someone had to say it, right?
