What We Are Grateful For: Love

Every year around Thanksgiving, we at Finding Cupid like to take a moment to look back at the year and reflect on what we are thankful for. Here is a little sampling of what our hearts are grateful for. Share what you are grateful for in the comments below! I've been with my husband for over 10 years now, and yes I still believe in love. Our challenges and milestones throughout the years, newfound degrees of patience and understanding, and growing with our daughter, heightened my heart to levels I never knew possible. I fall in love with them more and more every single day. So thankful for my healthy, loving and beautiful family. -Chef Leyna Doan Finding Cupid Blogger I am grateful for my

Why Millennials Won't Pay For Dating Apps

Tinder. Bumble. Grindr. Hinge. For a generation that is against commitment and traditional dating habits, we sure do have a lot of dating apps at our availability. With the countless dating apps on the market, we have access to more potential mates than any other generation. These apps have also changed how we date and meet people. Instead of meeting potential mates through friends or family, or boldly approaching others in public, we can sit at home and swipe through them instead. Lazy? Perhaps... Easy and effective? Definitely. We don't have to put in the extra effort and can get a date by simply swiping right,matching with someone, and having a nice chat that leads up to my favorite line,

How the Safety Pin Gave Hope to Many Post-Election

In the week that followed the election, and subsequent win of Donald Trump many people have been experiencing a sense of depression and fear over what's to come. Some Americans are wearing safety pins as a symbol of solidarity with victims of racism, homophobia and religious discrimination. People have spoken out on Twitter to say that their safety pins show that they are an ally to marginalized groups. The trend began in the UK, where people started wearing safety pins after the country’s vote to leave the European Union in June. Americans are starting to report a similar rise in hostilities, with the Southern Poverty Law Center recording more than 200 incidents of “election-related harassm

A Woman's Post-Election Inventory

The day after the election felt like I had a mutual break up with the best guy ever and we knew we had to part but I also knew he was the best I'd ever have in my lifetime, and I was going to be stuck being single for the next four years dating those kinds of guys who drink vodka sodas, work at a bank and smell like bad cologne and act like a pretentious frat kid (Sorry Eric and Donald Jr.). It felt like no matter what I said it didn't matter- I am a woman who doesn't have a clean slate. Let's take a look at this past year- from the rape at Stanford University, to the many shootings that have occurred to this election, we have witnessed that the white male has more privilege than any other p

THE GREAT BREAK UP

It was about 2am when the news started to roll in, things were looking pretty bleak. To my astonishment, Hillary Clinton, my (twice) presidential candidate had lost the election. With every minute that past and with “election update” graphic that panned over my tv screen, I sat and watched with utter shock that the unthinkable had just happened. Donald Trump just won the presidential election. I had to tear myself away from the television and force myself to go to bed, but I couldn’t stop watching. I kept hoping that at some point I would wake from some bad dream I was having all would be right in the world. I eventually put myself to sleep, but I never did wake from that horrible dream. I s

Why "Movember" Isn't Just A Passing Fad

There was a time in the not so distant past where growing a mustache was kinda crazy. The sheer idea of going full blown Duck Dynasty was not only crazy, but frowned upon by everyone. Then along cam "Movember". Movember is a movement to raise awareness for prostate cancer and other forms of male cancer. Participants are encouraged to shave their faces clean at the start of the month, and maintain the upkeep of a mustache, while shaving the rest of the beard. Mustaches have always been considered ironic, but for this month, it’s a sign of awareness. The movement’s beginnings can be traced all the way to Adelaide, Australia, in 1999. Since then it has become a global phenomenon and a fun way t
