Navigating Your Way Through Dating in 2021: The Paradox Of Choice
You want to find a lifelong partner. You’re using something like Tinder to find one. You sift through the endless options, searching for the perfect match.

Another Year, Another Lockdown: The Irish Dating Scene in 2021

Discord Leak: “We shouldn’t and we shouldn’t and we shouldn’t…”
We are angry. Justifiably angry. Some might call it righteous indignation, but that is far too anodyne a term to use. The Discord scandal has stirred everything we believe that is decent within us in reacting, yes angrily, to how appallingly, shockingly awful society treats women. You would never wish the worst upon the female figures in your life, so why let society abuse them at this level? It’s not ethical to shame women for crimes being committed against them. It has gone on too long. It needs to stop. Now!
