All the best dating apps and sites for hooking up

Urban Hippie
We know you're on the lookout for the best sites and apps for hooking up, but first we should talk about Hookup culture (just in case you aren't already familiar with it). Hookup culture is all about keeping it casual, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Everyone gets stuck in a sexual rut at some point in their lives, and let's face it: Trying to take strangers home from a bar or constantly texting your ex can be exhausting. If you're struggling to find a match in the real world, it might be time to let a dating site take the wheel. When we think about these sites, it's normal to go straight to the likes of Match, eharmony, EliteSingles, and other marriage-minded options, but not everyone is thinking about something so serious. Sometimes you just want to have fun.Do you really...
Latest Twitter meme doesn't care about your promise not to cry

Latest Twitter meme doesn't care about your promise not to cry

Urban Hippie
Emotions always run high on Twitter. Thankfully, at least on Wednesday, they were the good kind of emotions. The latest meme to rip across the social media platform calls out heartfelt, sad, and poignant moments from our favorite shows. In doing so, it tears to shreds whatever promise we made to ourselves not to cry. "I promise I won't cry," reads the meme text in part. "It's just a single frame from a TV show."This promise is followed up by "the frame" in question — which of course is the most emotional shot possible from shows like The Good Place, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Fleabag, or Futurama — immediately causing the tweeter to break their promise.

How to let someone bypass your iPhone Do Not Disturb settings

Urban Hippie
Every night before I sleep, I set my phone to Do Not Disturb, one of the many steps I have to take to not stare at my phone late into the evening. It makes it so that I can still receive text messages and calls, but I'm not notified. My phone doesn't ring, or vibrate, or even light up. It's genuinely blissful to not have any notifications for a few hours each day, even if they are the hours before I go to bed and after I wake up. But some important calls still need to come through, like when my roommate is out on a first date, or when a family member is in labor. Thankfully, it's easy to enjoy the positive parts of Do Not Disturb while still ensuring those important calls come through.Set up Do Not DisturbThere are two ways to set up Do Not Disturb on your iPhone: turning it on and off one...

Congratulations, Lil Nas X: It's an album!
