Dating Deal Breakers

Do you guys have dating deal breakers? Trying to think of them off hand I don't think I do, but as I watch these videos I find myself agreeing....but with the dudes. Sorry girls, but you're being a little too harsh! Am I the only one who thinks so?! "This is why Sex And The City has misled me so much." Like....I really think these girls are being too strict about this?! I don't see how bad grammar is a deal breaker, unless they can only talk to you by writing, pretty sure it's not an annoying habit that you have to 'deal with' 24/7. Pretty sure a lot of these things are things they really shouldn't be listing... "At the end of the day, you're not gonna find someone that you made up!" Some of the guys have some pretty unreasonable ones, too, but overall...I agree with them more? These guys' deal breakers are waaay less shallow than the girls', in my opinion, and I really appreciate that. Though, I think you're allowed to be a little shallow when it comes to things like these. Because at the end of the day, if you're not sexually and physically attracted to someone, you're not gonna want to date them. That's just the truth!

Spotlighting Sexual Violence in Kosovo

I just came across this exhibition, and I'm really impressed by it. It's become a popular to do massive art projects in order to raise awareness about real, big issues (think of the AIDS quilt or other big projects). 1000s of people died in Kosovo during a two year conflict with Serbia back in 1998 and 1999. That is often publicly discussed. What is not discussed, however, are the 20,000+ survivors of sexual violence from that time period. Artist Alketa Xhafa-Mripa organized a project to spotlight the large number of people who have suffered during that time and while hiding their secret since them. “‘Air dirty laundry in public’ is a way of saying ‘Talk about your private issues in public’, but in this case the laundry is washed, clean, like the women survivors who are clean, pure – they carry no stain,” Xhafa-Mrida said in an interview with The Guardian. “I want those thousands of dresses to hit you with the reality of what happened and I want people to talk about it. The installation can be grasped by anyone, no matter what language they speak,” she said. 50 dresses were hung on 45 washing lines on a football pitch, which could be seen as a symbol of masculinity and machismo. Cool, right? I would love to be able to see this massive exhibition in person!

What Was the Final Straw?

Alright guys, so next up in my series of what I might as well call the "I really don't understand love" cards, I have a question for everyone: What made you finally give up on that one person? The one who you dated, or you spent time with, that you really thought you could love, but they just never gave in to giving it a try? What made you stop begging for their love, and start focusing on recovering form it, and moving on to a love that would bring you more happiness?
