5 Worst Things to Hear on a First Date

Here are five things that the lads hate hearing on those first dates: Anything at all related to […]

things women hate men doing on dates

If you want there to be more dates, then it is advisable you avoid committing the following date crimes: Checking your phone If you are out on a date, whether it be in a restaurant or a park, keep your phone usage to a minimum. There is nothing more disheartening than thinking that you are less important than your date’s phone and who else they’re talking to. A date is about spending time with your significant other, so you should give them your undivided attention and actually engage in conversation. A phone screen should not take precedence over the woman you care for, unless it is essential. Talking about yourself […]

Appearance is something to which we as a culture give a tremendous amount of attention. We certainly aren’t the only species to obsess over it, but we are the first to build industries celebrating and feeding off of this widespread fascination. Women are traditionally used to espouse ideals of beauty, their bodies seen as objects to promote brands or lure in consumers. While images of women are generally more exploited for all sorts of businesses, leading to absurd standards in media and fashion – among others – men have recently been offered a taste of what that kind of unobtainable status can do to and for them. Enter the portmanteau […]

voting

Voting, democracy, and elections; three words it’s fair to say that you wouldn’t associate with the younger classes of Ireland. It is difficult enough to ensure that the middle aged people in the country vote; never mind the young! However, last year saw a change in the norm of this country, as hundred upon thousands of young people descended onto the voting booths of this country to ensure their voices were cast in the marriage equality referendum. Many people; experts, pundits and the like, can put the overwhelming yes vote down to politicians, but it would be foolish to argue that anybody else but students had the most important say […]
