By | Relationship Advice | No Comments

The Worst Ways to Break Up with SomeoneBreaking up is hard to do, but that doesn’t mean you get to take an easy way out! In this post, we’ve rounded up the 5 worst ways to break up with someone we’ve ever heard. If you have a heart (you DO have a heart, right?!) then you’ll never use any of these break up methods.

1. By Text

Oh, the dreaded break up text! If you’ve had an in-person relationship, which is very likely, then you owe your partner the respect of an in-person break up. Never, ever ditch a relationship by sending a text message or email. Even doing it by phone (depending how long you’ve been in the relationship for) should be avoided. If you’re adult enough to be in a relationship, then you’ve gotta do the adult thing and put an end to it face-to-face. Read More

Blog: Telling Someone You Don’t Want to Date Them: 101

By | Dating Tips | No Comments

How to Tell Someone You're Not InterestedAh, the dreaded unrequited love. While it seriously sucks to like someone and not have him or her the return the feeling, it’s almost worse to be the person who doesn’t return the “like”. It can be awkward, confusing and even make you feel guilty – especially if that person is nice, fun and would have otherwise made a great friend.

Do you really know how to tell someone you don’t want to date them without breaking their heart? It’s really not as difficult as you might think. AND the person you’re telling would much rather hear the truth now than be led on only to find out their affections aren’t returned a ways down the road.

So, listen up ladies and gentlemen! This is how you go about telling someone you don’t want to date them. Read More

Blog: Dating in the Modern World

By | Dating Tips, Relationship Advice | No Comments

Dating in 2014In today’s technology-ridden environment, it is almost impossible to avoid interacting with some form of online medium. Social media is quickly becoming more than a pastime-but an entirely new form of communication. Take hashtags for example- entire contexts can be created simply by adding the # symbol to the end of post online.

So what does all of this mean for dating? It is safe to say that gone are the ages of knocking on a girl/guy’s door and praying their parents aren’t the one to answer. Now, you can simply Facebook them, Tweet them, Instagram them, Snapchat them, Vine….well, you get the picture. Yet with all of these new methods of direct communication, are we really getting closer- or farther away?

Blog: What To Do When You’re Single on Valentine’s Day

By | Dating Tips | No Comments

Single on Valentines DayI know, I know- it feels like the end of the world. February 14th is right around the corner and horror of all horrors- you are single. Every store you walk into is covered in little heart candies and every shape and size heart imaginable. We understand how it could make you feel like grabbing a few dozen bags of those little heart-wrapped chocolates and drowning your solo sorrows on the couch all weekend long- but before you do, try this on for size instead.

Put yourself out there. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to send you into the arms of some sloppy bar suitor- but getting yourself out into the world instead of sitting on the couch will make you feel ten times better, I promise. Now first off, let’s set the perimeters of where not to go: high-end restaurants, popular weekend getaway resorts, or the latest chick flick at the movie theater. These are all going to be couple-central this weekend and therefore not where you want to be.

Blog: Would you Consider this Girl to Be a Gold Digger?

By | Dating Tips | No Comments

Gold DiggerOne of my favorite things about Quest is that the girls are real. And what I mean by real is that they are genuine, honest girls who want to have some fun. The girls I’ve met through online dating are so much more fake than the girls I meet on Quest. I was reading about this recently and I’m so happy I’ve never fallen for something like this:

Basically this girl is just using guys to get free meals at expensive restaurants. I don’t know about you, but to me this sounds like a SCAM!

Blog: Why I Keep my QuestChat Profile Active – Even When I’m Dating

By | All About QuestChat, Relationship Advice | No Comments

Why I Keep my QuestChat Profile ActiveThere’s a topic of conversation that always comes up among guys when they get together for a guy’s night out – at what point do you stop “playing the field” and commit to a girl.

It’s a delicate situation, there’s no way around that. In my younger years I was a bit more idealistic and stopped dating multiple girls when I felt like I had a serious connection with a girl. I thought I was doing the right thing, only to find out that I was the one getting burned.

That’s right, on multiple occasions the girls were also dating other guys. So I decided to change things up. I figured that until we had “that talk” I was going to be open game it it’s worked out well for me. Things are more fun. I get to meet new girls. I don’t seem as needy. Etc, etc, etc.
