Bumble just copied Tinder’s creepiest feature so I guess I’m deleting my account now
It’s Bumble’s fault I’m gonna die alone
by Amanda Ross
Bumble used to be our oasis. It seemed to attract a slightly higher quality of people than Tinder, forced us to think of clever(ish) opening lines outside of “heyyyy” and — most importantly — we were never at risk of accidentally hitting the stupid fucking Super Like star with our thumb while swiping on the toilet.
But like all good things (pricey lip balms, open bars), it had to come to an end.
The ladies-first app just introduced a ~cOoL nEw FeAtUrE~ called Super Swipe and it’s literally exactly like Super Like. This is what it looks like:

Eyebrow waxing is a scam, sorry!
Somebody has to say it
by Katie Way
Maintaining your eyebrows is a labor of love akin to keeping an orchid alive or baking a soufflé. They require a delicate touch, and one wrong move can lead to disaster: dead flower, collapsed pastry, fucked-up 'brows. 'Since nobody is born with a Cara Delevingne situation going on (honestly, Cara probably wasn't either), which means…
