NEW YORK POST, How regular guys are catching sexual predators online, 4/10/17:

The latest pastime in British Columbia, Canada, has nothing to do with snowmobiling or moose hunting. According to Esquire, the province has become a hub for amateur sleuths who set up and catch creeps who are trying to arrange sexual liaisons with underage girls.

Then they call the authorities and post video evidence on the internet.

The movement of recreational pedo-snatchers began some four years ago when a construction worker, Justin Payne, came up with the bright idea of creating a fake online dating profile for a boy below the age of consent…See the full article at New York Post.

VANITY FAIR, Charlize Theron Explains the Problem with Celebrity Dating Apps, 4/12/17:

Despite her aversion to the online dating game, Theron said her friend Chelsea Handler tried to persuade her to join in on the trend. At the Women’s March at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City this year, Theron said Handler took some time to introduce her to a dating app for celebrities.

“She’s swiping all these faces of guys in all different sorts of . . . different variations of no clothes. Then, they know that you’ve just said you don’t like them.”

“And then you have to text them, and then the flirting starts, and it’s kind of awkward because they’re trying to be cute, and they say weird stuff like, ‘What’s up, sexy?’ And it’s just awkward.” See the full article at Vanity Fair.

Quell the impulse to text “We need to talk.” If you’ve already typed it in, with your thumb hovering above “send,” aim for “delete” instead.

GIVE ME EVERYTHING YOU AM: “Love Again” by Run The Jewels

The other week, I was having a conversation with a friend of mine who is a new father – we’ll call him Cronus – and we were talking about parental instinct. He lowered his voice conspiratorially, considered the infant in his lap and said, “Sometimes I love my baby so much that I want to eat him. Is that normal?” 

Turns out, it’s not just normal–it’s science! Olfactory chemical signals–the smells of newborn babies have been linked to dopamine spikes in the brains of new mothers, essentially triggering the same neurological reward circuit activated when a very hungry person eats, or when a heroin addict shoots up…

5 Ways to Avoid the Cliff of Contemporary Dating

I have a friend who dates online… a lot. You could say she’s popular. She gets out again and again because she’s fabulous–which is obvious, even through a screen. Yet she arrives each time preloaded with every personal detail about her date–their hometown, full legal name, and family history–often even their annual income and whether or not they rent or own. IT IS RIDICULOUS. The internet is a fantastic tool for writing a thesis, but should it be used to compose a 15-page, pre-introduction memoir on a potential romantic interest’s life story?…
