This Instagram DM hack is about to save you a lot of drunken embarrassment
For those of you who love to drunk-text your ex
by Jenn Ficarra
As the resident babe Instagram guru, I am back with another life-changing Instagram "hack" that will significantly decrease your humiliation by 85 percent.
Recently, I had made the mistake of drinking too many glasses of Pinot Noir and clicking over to a former hook-ups Instagram. I thought "Hey, why not slide into those DMs?"
Big mistake. Huge!
The next morning I clicked back and saw that he had yet to read my humiliating message. I was blessed. And for a moment, I thought that it would be wonderful if this message could just disappear. I don't know what compelled me to do it but I held down my message when suddenly, an option to "unsend" appeared. I clicked it and saved my soul.
Yes, you're reading that right — you can unsend Instagram DMs.

Instagram really in 2027 with the unsend button for their DMs.

So often we are forced to live in a world where we have to deal with our consequences but now, Instagram has made it so that we never have to pay the piper. Instead, we can erase our mistakes as if they never happened at all.
That celeb you sent a nude to? Unsend!
Your ex whom you sent a long, drunk message to? Unsend!
Your mom who you accidentally sent a lewd meme to? Unsend!
Now, the sky is the limit. We can play with fire and avoid getting burned. We can take a risk and then take it back the minute we realize we made a massive mistake.
Instagram letting us unsend DMs is the gift that keeps on giving. It is what we, as a collective, deserve in these times of turmoil and despair.
God bless you, Instagram, and you're enabling of our hot mess behavior. Couldn't do it without you. Happy Unsending!
We asked girls for the biggest relationship red flags they’ve ever seen, and now I never want to date again
Love is HORRIFYING
by Katie Way
We've all been on a few dates with someone before we discovered something that stopped us cold in our tracks and made us buy a one-way ticket to Ghost City. Maybe your prospective boo was "into politics." Maybe your would-be lover asked you if you wanted to go to a Meghan Trainor concert. Maybe you…
We asked girls for the dumbest reasons they cried while hormonal and now I’m crying too
‘I cried because the sky was beautiful’
by Katie Way
We've all been there — in a situation where normally, we'd be faintly annoyed, but with the added bonus of a veritable tsunami of estrogen. Sometimes, you just have to cry it out, am I right? Whether it's that Sarah McLaughlin commercial with those sad, abandoned cats or the Chipotle employee fucking up your order…
How often should you shower? An investigation
It’s time to be honest for once
by Ari Bines
Most people I know say they shower every single day, which makes sense because that's what we've all been trained to think from our parents washing our asses in our infancy. However, this is real life where we don't live in an episode of Sex and the City and the characters have 72 hour days…
