Yes, YOU! Dating and romance is a continually evolving landscape. We're in the middle of a freaking pandemic!!! How has dating affected you there? Are you more or less anxious now than you were? Is Hot Girl/Boy/Person Summer really a thing? How is your mental health holding up? How are you dealing with all these questions here (and in your personal life)?
Our platform has always been a place where people can riff on their experiences with love, sex, loss, excitement, and everything that happens between the sheets and out on the streets. We want to know what your story is, how you're coping, and what the future holds for you.
What kind of stories do we want?
Anything having to do with your dating life or your relationships. We like long-form pieces, content built around images or video. They can be brief missives on what you're feeling and where you're at in your own headspace. It doesn't have to be gory but it should be authentic.
If you have thoughts on gender in dating, emotional accountability, equitability in dating and relationships those are a few topics we'd love to read more about!
What we're not looking for
Advice pieces. We're pretty much filled to the brim with advice. People have read the same article written thousands of ways. Advice that is data-driven though? That has plenty of linked research and sources? Oh yeah. Talk nerdy to us, bb!
