In a city where everything is amplified, fast cars have to be faster, fast food is never ever fast enough, and hooking up turns into a relationship before you can even blink – it’s safe to say the L.A. dating scene is virtually non-existent. Discussing this phenomenon with my best friend, it became apparent that lines must be drawn. This lazy dating trend train that everyone is jumping on to is a vicious cycle. So if you don’t hook up, you have no chance? That seems more than ridiculous, but unfortunately true. What it comes down to is, the rules are completely extinct – so just take it a day at a time. Go out, stay in, enjoy whatever the latest tryst trend may be. Just remember the situation is almost never black and white. Mostly, everything comes in shades of gray.
